We were staying in Imerovigli. The shuttle picked us up right on time 9:05 am, for a day sail from Ammoudi Bay around to the southern side of Santorini. The bus dropped us off and we got in line where the check in desk gave out different colored cards, each for different cruises that morning. We were blue, and at 10am, the boat pulled up for us. The catamaran was spacious inside and had plenty of room out front for all of the passengers to get remarkable views. First stop was the lava formations in the caldera to get a swim in. The water was colder than I expected as there is an active volcano under the seabed. There is a smell of sulphur, which the guides tell you about before you jump in. Next was the sailing past the Akrotiri Lighthouse to White Beach. We had lunch and swim time. We were there about 1.5 hours, then heading to Red Beach for about 20 minutes. The waves were a bit choppy, so I would recommend taking Dramamine before getting on the boat. The food was surprisingly good (eat the shrimp!!!), and beer, wine, soda, and water is offered to the group during the entire trip. It might be the best way to see Santorini!

We chartered a Lagoon 62 Catamaran out of Santorini for a week. The boats name was “SANTORINI” We had 4 couples. (8 people). We had a fabulous trip. The boat was new, clean, comfortable and beautiful. The crew was outstanding. Our Captain was Christos. He was very knowledgeable about all the islands and helped us plan an itinerary that worked well for us. We went to Mykonos, Paros, Anti Paros, IOS and more. The Mate was Spyros. He was friendly, helpful and a lot of fun. I was usually the first one to rise in the morning and he was always there with the perfect cappuccino. The Chef was Tina. Her creations were beyond all expectations. She prepared amazing breakfast each day and there was always something new. Lunches and dinners beautiful. I couldn’t believe she was able to prepare such quality food with such variety each day. Often our plans would change and she was very flexible.
The whole crew did a great job of being there if we needed anything at all while at the same time being invisible when we didn’t need them. I feel like we have three new friends. They are wonderful people and I hope we can charter with them again.

5/5. Ana at the office was incredible and super helpful. Coming from the USA we had several questions and Ana was a great planning partner for all of our travel needs and ideas. Then we met Captain Phillip, Catalina & the rest the the amazing crew. Captain Phillip & Catalina were both top notch top deck quality. Music on the sunset tour was (insert fire emoji here) and honestly everything exceeded expectations. A+

My partner and I booked the diamond sunset cruise. Pick up was well organised and safe delivery to the dock (with excellent covid restrictions). The sail boat was gorgeous and well kept. Staff were friendly but there was no safety discussion-life jacket location would be good- and covid temp tests were taken after we departed. The meal was lovely and drinks aplenty. The stops were quick although happy to stay at white beach longer. Clearer water and more space. The trip back to Oia was rather treacherous. With strong winds and five foot swells it was a bumpy and wet ride. Again location of safety vests would have been helpful as some decided to stay up front during the ride (insane) and at least one passenger didn’t know how to swim. Even this seasoned sailer was feeling a bit trepidatious. However the sunset was sublime and worth the rough seas. Definitely recommend a day on the water.

As a couple on our honeymoon we took a 5 hour sunset cruise with Boat Ipanema S8 with Captain Antonias and Crewmates Raphaela and Antonis. These lovely three took us and about 7 other couples for an experience of a lifetime chance to swim in the caldera hot springs, red sand beach, and black sand beach. They grilled us an awesome authentic Greek cuisine dinner at sunset and provided some background of the different sites and scenes as we went about. They played music that suited the moment the entire time. We felt like we were living a dream the entire journey. It helps that the crew were friendly, hospitable, fun, enthusiastic, and weren’t afraid to sing along and dance with the guests along the way. If you are looking for an intimate one of a kind experience that will serve memories of a life time then these folks are for you. Thank you so much!!

Wonderful morning and early afternoon seeing what Santorini had to offer with Sunset Oia. We were picked up from our hotel right on time, and after completing all the necessary forms were greeted by very friendly staff who were knowledgable and shared their wisdom with us as we visited different parts of the island. We had the opportunity to swim in the crystal clear Aegean Sea, went up close to the volcanoes that are just off the coast of Santorini and had the most delightful lunch. I find good food on trips such as these is rare, so it was a lovely surprise. We paid €170 in total (€85 each) and it was money well spent. Recommend!

Sunset Oia Sailing Cruises was a perfect boating experience around Santorini. The catamaran was absolutely spotless, I’ve seldom seen such a clean boat including toilets. They took us to three different scenic locations to swim and snorkel.
Staff was extremely friendly and the food delicious. I can strongly recommend this company.

We sailed the IPANENA 58 with Captain Antonis, along with crew Haris, George and Antonis. It was an awesome experience. captain Antonis put the sails up at every opportunity (including at sunset) when every other catamaran was motoring! They were great hosts, the food was fantastic, and the experience one we will remember for years. HIGHLY recommend you sail with them.

Our group had a blast sailing the catamaran Naxos ( SunsetOia)! The food was sumptuous yet light. Although we were not big on alcohol, wide array of choices for non-alcoholic beverage were available. The music and dancing continues from the moment we left the port at Oia until we docked again in the early evening. We had the most accommodating and friendly crew ever - Christina, Thanos, George .... and Kostas ably navigating the boat. We will always cherish this experience as one of the happiest part of our trip to Greece last month! Efharisto Santorini...Efharisto Catamaran Naxos crew!

The catamaran cruise during sunset was hands down the best part of our 10-day Greece trip! Our crew members were Maria and Jimmy. They were easygoing, funny, and very helpful. They created a fun and laid-back environment for us to enjoy the day. We were surprised by the quality of the food for lunch. We thoroughly enjoyed the BBQ dishes! From the music to the views to the good company, we would highly recommend this experience to anyone heading to Santorini!
