The crew were amazing. We were on the Alma Libre with Kostas as the skipper. Antonios kept the mood lighthearted and fun throughout. He was very knowledgeable about the different parts of Santorini and surrounding islands/volcanoes, as well as historical impact of island. Lianna was one of the nicest people we met and went out of her way to learn about you and become friends. She was also a great cook! Despina was also great and the three made sure we always had a drink if we liked. The views and water were breathtaking. The food was delicious. The company was outstanding.

The guide and the entire crew waited on you and made you feel very special. We laughed, danced and really got to know the others on the cruise with us.

My girlfriends and I had a FABULOUS time on this cruise with Captain Spyros and his crew. They were attentive and enjoyable to be with. The boat was immaculate and the food was good too! We mostly enjoyed swimming and snorkeling and of course watching the sunset from the bow of the boat while we were out on the open water. The crew played a medley of some of my old favorite songs while the remaining passengers sang "Happy Birthday" was a fabulous day and an incredible 60th birthday getaway. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour and crew to anyone would wants to spend time on the water while visiting the beautiful island of Santorini. Thank you so much!

Loved this excursion. Very relaxing and a great way to spend half a day. The crew was fantastic and the food cooked on the boat was delicious! It was well organized and the group size was comfortable. We did the morning cruise so I can't speak to the sunset views, but with the weather being a bit cooler and windy (we went in late Sept) I'm glad we did the cruise whilst the sun was out. Highly recommend this!

We really enjoyed our excursion aboard the catamaran. I did have one concern when I booked the excursion it said they were be 6 to 8 people on the boat turns out it was closer to 20. This was a immediate concern but once we got underway and people spread out On the boat it was not crowded. The captain saw my concern and made sure that my wife and I were happy the entire time. My wife is vegan I let them know and they made sure she had a good variety to eat. If you’re looking for a nice way to spend an afternoon this excursion is for you.

It was a fantastic Cruise and the staff were awesome. We had Stavro as the captain and another stavro on the cruise and a lady I think her name was alma or something close, I am sure her boss would know when they see Stavro and Stavro on the same cruise. She made the meals which were fantastic

This was, single-handedly, the best decision we made while we were in Greece. At first we were hesitant because of the cost, but after reading all of the reviews and the reviews of comparable cruises, we made the decision to go for it and so happy we did! This crew and cruise was worth every single penny! Unfortunately, I don't remember the name of our crew members, but all three of them were kind, helpful, fun, and went out of their way for whatever we all needed. The fact that this particular cruise is limited to a certain number of passengers is the way to go. We saw so many other cruises that had too many people aboard and it looked crowded and uncomfortable. We had plenty of space to sit, stand, lay, and roam around the catamaran and met a lot of great people. We went to all of the spots as advertised and got to swim around and learn about certain landmarks and history. The lunch was also divine -- to think that they prepared all of the food on board a little grill was amazing and better than some food we had in restaurants! Overall, if you're on the fence about this excursion, go for it! You won't be disappointed.

This sunset cruise was a highlight of our honeymoon! Not only were the sites breathtaking, but the crew was outstanding! Kostas, Nikolas and Angela (Caldera II) did an amazing job attending to our needs. The food was fantastic (and plentiful), and we loved that the crew took time to teach us about the island's history. If you are visiting Santorini, I highly recommend using Spiridakos for a cruise around the Caldera.

Great choice and lots of fun. Our host was fantastic and sunset spectacular. We were able to tour island, swim and even enjoyed a BBQ

Such a good trip. The catamaran was clean and well maintained, wasn’t over crowded and had a fab crew! I can’t remember the crew names but can’t fault their service one bit. All really nice, friendly and polite. Food was excellent and drinks, particularly the white wine was excellent...not the normal cheap rubbish you tend to get given on trips! Would definitely recommend. We enjoyed a fab sunset on the trip, much better than being at Oia!

Great experience-great staff. The view of the sunset was unreal, the drinks were flowing and the food was surprisingly really good. Highly recommended and would do it again in a hearbeat.

`This was a homerun. The boat was great, the service was great and the locations amazing. Don't wear a white bathing suit if you will swim in the hot springs as the sulfur will stain the suit. Highly Recommend.

The Cruise itself was great but what really made the trip was the crew. They were incredibly nice, funny and very attentive. I would highly recommend this!

The crew, Captain Alex, Stavros, Neda and Lida were amazing- Constantly attentive to the needs of the passengers and always offering assistance. The food was amazing, the service was excellent, and not to mention the crew was hilarious. This was the first cruise I have been on and I cant image any other cruise living up to it.

The catamaran was beautiful and very spacious. The crew was friendly and helpful! The weather was very windy and therefore the water was choppy but that actual made for quite a fun ride!

We did the sunset cruise - that Santorini sunset is just as breathtaking as they say... ESPECIALLY from the water. We had a fantastic crew who kept us fed, drinks full, told us about the areas we were passing, and just overall contributed to a fun atmosphere. The boat was beautiful and had plenty of seating. We had a max group of people on our cruise and it didn't feel crammed. Plenty of space for everyone to relax and take in the views. Food and drinks were great. If you are going to Santorini I could not recommend this more. It was a huge highlight for us.

When I booked the cruise, I was not sure of the experience, especially given we had a kid. However, we made an excellent choice and I thoroughly recommend this for everyone including families. From the hotel to port, then the cruise and then till drop off, it was a very good experience. The crew members of our boat (Happy Days), Isidoro, Angela, and Faiz were great and looked after us( and other folks) very well. Their attention to detail was immaculate and it made sure all of us on the boat had an amazing experience. I would thoroughly recommend this and thanks again to the crew for the experience.

This was our favorite excursion of the whole trip. The catamaran was so much fun and it stopped at beautiful spots (hot springs, beaches) for a swim. We had a great time, wish we could have done this twice!
