We have recently been traveling with our two daughters (22 and 24) visiting amazing places (Paris, Rome, Greece, etc.) It is wonderful to share these places with them now that they are adults. We love boating and cooking, so we always take some time to experience these activities when we travel. Although it was late in the season for boating, this was a really fun trip. We sat on the front nets of the catamaran, while one of the guides brought us wine and soft drinks, explained the various rock formations, took pictures of us, etc. When it got rougher, we were instructed to sit higher up on the bow, and we were given blankets. They took amazing care of us! We swam in the hot springs, which one of our guides informed us were really "warm-ish." We also had a really great dinner of chicken, stuffed grape leaves, tzatziki and Greek salad. Since this was the end of the season, it was not the time of year to sunbath or swim, but we shared this cruise with only 4 other passengers, which made it very memorable. It was a wonderful, relaxing afternoon with my family. Another great experience from Viator!

The driver picked us up in Imerovigli where we were staying. The ride to the port was quick. The catamaran had about 18 people and the weather was great! the crew (3 people) was very great and accomodating while explaining all the landmarks and answering all questing pleasantly and knowledgeably. Maria was very great at making sure all guests had enough to drink and eat. The catamaran was very very clean! We got to swim in the "Hot springs" - well not really hot, but in sulfur water from the active volcano - for about 20 minutes followed by a warm rinse off. Make our way to the next site where we snorkeled for another 20 minutes and had a nice greek lunch with chicken, salad, pasta, dolmades, and lots of wine! We sailed past red beach, which i thought we would've stopped at and wished we had. The tour sailed out about 30 minutes early and ended about 1.5 hour early..... The company Spiradakos was our catamaran sailing tour and would recommend.

This cruise was so much fun! And ended with an amazing sunset. The Captain and crew were so much fun and hospitable. We had about 20 people on the boat, so very easy to move around and find a spot to sit. They took us to 3 different swimming spots and then buffet dinner which was delicious. It was very easy to get on and off the boat into the water and they provided towels which was great! This is a definite must for your trip -- so glad we did this.

Awesome trip. The crew were lovely and gave us interesting information about what we were seeing. I appreciated the kindness of the crew in helping me board and disembark via a gang plank which was scary for me . Two swimming spots, non stop drinks and a nice buffet lunch. Not too crowded, only 15 passengers and 3 crew. Amazing views topped it off. Definitely a do not miss when in Santorini

I was really looking forward to this catamaran tour, and am glad to say that it did not disappoint. The views were beautiful and the boat was a fun way to view the island. The highlight for me was definitely the hot springs.

We had an excellent time on this tour. Our guide Antonio made the tour lots of fun. He is the best tour guide on the boat. Took care of everyone. He was very helpful and knowledgeable.

The daytime cruise was fun, relaxing, and informative. The hotel pick up and drop off made access very easy. The few rules on the boat - all safety related - do not hamper passengers’ ability to enjoy themselves and the relaxed atmosphere enhances the experience. The views are wonderful, the swimming really pleasant, the food delicious, and the pace generally easy. The guide was informative and personable and ready to answer questions about the culture and geography of the island and beaches. He also had a great sense of humor. The trip is a must do on the island as well as an antidote to the hectic crowded Fira and Oia.

The sunset tour we booked was just amazing! Coopi - our guide - was not only the perfect 'local guide' but also the best host we have ever experienced. His knowledge about the island and his hospitality was just amazing. It felt like a big - time limited - family trip. The sunset was stunning and the music very fitting. Food and wine were very good!

We thoroughly enjoyed this Sunset cruise. Our crew was fabulous, especially Coopi and made everybody feel like a big family for the evening. He was extremely knowledgeable and very personable:) The food was very good and the wine always being poured. We would definitely recommend this Sunset cruise, definitely a must:)

My daughter and I had a wonderful time on the cruise. The boat staff was terrific. Loved jumping in the water to cool off. The food was very good, too. Would recommend this cruise if you want a fun day on the water.

The crew, vessel, food and itinerary were all first-rate. When you start off on a beautiful Greek island, it's hard to reach higher, but this was definitely THE vacation highlight. From the pickup to the drop-off, we were treated as VIPs in a setting only VIPs could get used to. A+.

This catamaran sunset cruise is a must if you are in Santorini! The trip takes you to various interesting locations on the island in just a few hours! Nikolas on the Caldera II boat made our trip even more memorable through his joyful character! The delicious buffet is served after some dips in the Aegian Sea. The trip finally ends with viewing the sunset - romantic indeed!

Brand new catamaran with not too many people on. They care about the comfort rather than the number. The crew are super great in every sense. Very helpful, knowledgeable and funny. They take to the must see in santorini and they give a very precise and interesting history about what you are seeing. The time allocated for the swims was great and the food was amazing. Don’t choose any other company for there were many catamaran around and those run by the company were the newest and had the best equipment and probably the best crew but that I couldn’t know for wasn’t on their catamaran.

Out hotel wasn’t accessible by car but we were contacted by the staff with a direct pickup point immediately after booking. We had Pablo as our Cruise host along with Captain Leo and Crew. They couldn’t have been better! Coming from a service background you could tell it was put together very well. The lunch buffet exceeded my expectations of lunch on a boat... very good. Learned fun facts throughout the trip even on the rides to and from our hotel. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an amazing day of fun!

I would recommend anyone considering a sailing trip around Santorini to book this trip. The guides are first class and very informative of the history of the Caldera. Our captain was called Stavros who was excellent. He was very caring when my wife started feeling sea sick and helped her overcome this. We stopped in the hot springs and two further swimming stops, in between lunch was served which was delicious. The Catamaran was luxurious, our family all thought this was the highlight of our holiday.

Great cruise with a fantastic team looking after us! Such a good decision to take the semi-private cruise option - we had 16 on our cruise (our family was 6 of those!) - most other boats seemed to have 100 or so jammed on board! We had loads of time at each swim/snorkel stop and the captain carefully picked stops where there weren’t many other boats. Lunch was delicious with loads there for those that wanted seconds! Thoroughly recommend!

Thank you to our crew, Captain Alex, Lida, Stavros, and Hassan, for an awesome day cruising around Santorini on your catamaran. My husband and I brought our 10 month old baby and the crew was helpful the whole time. They offered to hold him while we boarded and exited, provided a life jacket for him, and even allowed us to use the bedroom below deck for changing him. They also made sure we had a nice, safe place in the shade for our family to spread out and enjoy the views. Thank you for accommodating our family and making sure we had a fun and relaxing time!

Kostas, Nokolas and Angela gave us a great day on the water in a beautiful area. The company worked with us to help us get on the excursion when our ship was late docking. The scenery, the food, the service and the information provided was outstanding. There were 15 of us on board and the crew gave us the very best service humanly possible. Cannot recommend this excursion enough. Do this excursion and you will not regret it.
