“Fab way to end a fab holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

We decided to go on this cruise on the morning we were flying home (2nd July), have to say it was the highlight of our holiday ! The food was freshly cooked on the Catamaran which was immaculate by the way. We stopped of at different beaches, one being the hot springs although not as hot I we thought but still lovely ! One tip is if you go on this cruise, don't wear a white bikini as the sulphur in the hot springs will turn it yellow. The crew were fab, nothing too much trouble, always making sure you had enough to drink. The captain was also great, one member of the party couldn't swim and he put a life jacket on her and got her in the water with a life saver encouraging her all the way ! Also one member lost her hat in the sea and the captain turned round and fished it out for her ! We are returning to Santorini in September and this will be on our list of things to do again. We also met some fab people on this Catamaran ! We met as strangers and left as friends ! Highly recommend !!

“Perfect way to see Santorini! Highlight of our trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Captain Leo is the ultimate host! My 20-something sons and I had the best time aboard the catamaran/sailboat with Captain Nick and crew. We were picked up at our hotel, driven right to the boat and helped aboard for a fabulous day on the water. We did the morning cruise to the red beach and the hot springs -- past the "Indian" rock, with stops for swimming and snorkeling. The colors of the rocks and the water were startling and spectacular! It was so relaxing and beautiful. Plenty of time for swimming and sightseeing. My son even got to help with the sails -- which he loved. The staff was so attentive and gracious -- always making sure we had refreshments or anything we needed. Lunch was superb: seafood, pasta, fresh salad, dips, bread. We loved everything about the trip! It was wonderful to swim in the caldera and to view Santorini from the water. When people ask me what was my favorite part of our trip, this day is definitely at the top of our list! Captain Leo and Captain Nick and the rest of our crew really made it a day to remember. Thank you all!

“"One of the best days of our two month holiday"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

My partner and I did a semi-private cruise on a catamaran around Santorini sailing past red beach and white beach and the volcano. It was a morning cruise which started around 10am and finished at 3pm. There were only three couples on our trip and it was a fantastic day! The crew could not have been more accommodating, offering us towels, refreshment and cooking up and incredible lunch. We had so many great laughs and didn't want to leave! This was definitley one of the highlights of our two month holiday through Europe. I highly recommend this company and paying that little extra to do a semi-private cruise!

“Highlight of the holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

You have to do this! It is romantic, fun and stunning. The food is great, the crew friendly and the whole experience from start to end was faultless. I would give it six stars if I could.

Word of warning... do NOT wear a white bikini/trunks as the sulfur discolours it and it will end up in the bin like mine did (although it was worth it and they warn you before you go in).

“Amazing sea!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

We booked a private yatch and it was truly an amazing experience at the sea. Both the captain and the crew were great and very friendly. Although, the sea was a a bit choppy but we enjoyed that too. It was great to be in the say for half a day, we swan in the sea, hot springs, hiked for a while in one of the volcanic islands, were served great dinner and watched a very beautiful sunset. We were picked up and dropped off from our hotel, so it was very convenient! Loved the trip!
