Your cruise experience with “Captain Vasilis” catamaran begins with your pick up from your Hotel. Your transfer is a 6-8 seat air-conditioned van and will drive you to Vlychada port.

Once you are on board and welcomed by the captain and host, you will be informed for the full schedule.

First stop is at the Red Beach and then at the White Beach which is only accessible by boat. Depending on the wind you will spend some time at one of these spots to swim (approximately 20 minutes).

After, you continue your sailing by the Black Mountain, the Indian Rock and the Venetian lighthouse. On the next big turn you finally enter the Caldera where you can admire and see Santorini from a completely different angle and most importantly on board. Therefore we approach the Volcano, the Hot Springs and make the second big stop at one of the Volcano’s gulfs. On this stop you can enjoy another refreshing swim and enjoy lunch or dinner (depending on the cruise you have chosen) on board (approximately 40 minutes).

After your journey back to Vlychada port begins. On the sunset cruise you also see Santorini’s beautiful sunset. Once you reach the port your transfer will drive you back to your Hotel.
