“excellent tour, competitive cost”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

I took the sunset tour with my 7 year old son and my mom. All three generations enjoyed it immenselly. Please don't think this is for honeymooners and loved-up couples only. This fas my impresssion and boy was I wrong. There was a mix of families with young kids, groups and a few couples. We started out of Oia at 15:00. and headed for red beach, 30 min stop for snorkeling, next stop white beach where the lunch was prepared. The choise was between a porkchop and chicken ( I think you need to order chicken in advance), there was also greek salad, wrapped grapeleaves, macaroni salad, bread and for dessert sliced apples with sweet syrup. Drinks: sparkling water, coke/sprite/orange soda, wine and ouzo. After lunch we headed for the hot springs and then slowly we sailed toward the sunset. The timing was perfect! and we were the last vessel to come back to the dock, beautifull scenery and views of Santorini from the sea, highly recommended for all ages.

“Favorite outing in Oia!”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This is a must while in Santorini… what a great way to see the island from the water, and the light at sunset was exquisite. The crew stops at the red beach, where you can take a dip, and the white beach, where you can do a bit of snorkeling, which was just ok… the beautiful sights here are above the water, not under. We also stopped at the hot springs, which were interesting. It was a bit of a swim to get to the warm (not hot) springs. The crew told us to remove silver jewelry before getting in the water, rinses you off when you get back on the boat to remove the sulphur (?). (I also had to really wash out my suit back at the hotel, as the white parts had turned a bit rusty!). Then off to Amoudi Bay for sunset viewing, which was amazing from the water.
Enjoyed meeting our fellow passengers, there were about 20 of us, plenty of room to walk around the boat, and lay out on the front. The crew was friendly and made the best dinner for us, Santorini wine was plentiful. We just ate too slowly, and talked too much, and couldn’t go back for seconds as they had put it all away… the pork was delicious, the salads were so fresh and the grape leaves were the best we have had.
Thanks for a wonderful evening!

“Great experience in short time”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

We stayed in Oia for 3 days and after traveling by plane, boat and car, we wanted to relax the first day at the pool. It left us not much time to see the rest of the island so the second day we went for a day cruise. They also offer a sunset cruise for the same price. The hotel Atrina set it up for us and arranged a van to pick us up near the hotel and take us down to Ammoudi bay. From there we went on for a 5 hour cruise which dropped us off first at the hot springs of the volcano and went swimming. There are some warm spots mixed in with cold spots of swimming water. Also don't wear anything white because the sulfur and rocks can stain you trunks a bit. off to the next spot and got back on the boat towards the red beach for another swim. The beaches are a bit rocky since this was a volcano. Not much sand. Another 30 minute swim then on to our 3rd stop where they started a barbeque grill and prepared a delicious meal with pasta, bread, salad and grilled pork chops or chicken. They also prepared a vegetarian meal fo those that don't eat meat. We then went sailing for a bit where they dropped down their sails but it wasn't too windy. After relaxing and laying out in the sun, we headed back to the same port and the van took us back to the hotel. Not a bad way to spend half a day to see different parts of the island as well as get a great meal. Don't forget there is unlimited wine and soft drinks included! Don't think the beer was included but was offered. A great time for swimming, relaxing and eating! Well organized and highly recommended if not much time on the island.

“Money well spent !!!”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

This is a must try, I thought it was affordable ! may be because its around end of September...
I went on the 5 hours tour: stopping by red beach, white beach, volcano island, hot spring and conclude with excellent sun set view !! One thing worth mentioning is, the price comes with BBQ on the Catamaran Ocean Voyager 74, which is excellent !!!!!!
just bear in mind, when you are at red & white beach, it does not stop close to the beach due to its size...
The crew are excellent and very helpful.....!!
