Excellent small group catamaran. Pick up is in Amoudi Bay so directly below the cliffs of Oia, we could've walked from the hotel. I didn't realize it was a one way trip and we had to take a van back from the center of the island - it would have been better for us to have a round trip cruise. Crew was great, helped me managed some minor seasickness and the food was wonderful. There were 10 people on our tour so much more comfortable than the other really loaded boats we saw going out of the marine! Would definitely do it again!

What a wonderful experence! This was one of the highlights of our trip to Greece. The 3 chances to swim in the Aegean Sea, the route that showed off most of the highlights of Santorini that can be seen from the sea, the incredible lunch made for us on board, the small group size of 14, the music, and the kind service made this a day tour of a lifetime.

Very organized and beautiful cruise. Crew kept it quiet and provide all the services. I got seasick and they were very helpful. Food was great. I would do it again for sure!!!

Great trip and crew. The food was excellent just disappointed the weather didn’t cooperate so we couldn’t visit the beaches.

100% recommend this boat trip, great time on captain Alex’s boat
