If you thought you couldn't have a summer Santorini experience in winter, this cruise will leaving you thinking otherwise. During many moments on this cruise, I forgot it was December (including folks jumping into the water for a swim)! The meet-up directions and other logistics were straightforward. Lunch was freshly made and delicious. All of the stops during the cruise gave us stunning perspectives of Santorini, the caldera, and Thirasia. My favorite part was sunset - there's nothing like watching the sun set the skies on fire from the middle of the sea.

What a great experience. Our first mate Luca was amazing - fun, engaging, knowledgeable, and an amazing chef! Our captain was great too - he got us so close to the cliffs and caves, and we were able to sail on the return trip. Overall wonderful activity!

The crew was great. We were picked up near our hotel and taken to the dock. The crew outlined the trip and made us felt at home on the boat. They cooked up a fresh meal for us and kept us well hydrated. We were offered the chance to jump in and they had towels ready for us. We finished with a great view of the sunset. Super day.
