Great experience!
On my recent visit in Santorini I’ve tried the famous “catamaran excursion” with Vista Yachting company. It was amazing! I highly recommend it for anyone seeking a perfect blend of relaxation and excitement.

The best activity we did in Santorini! We did the sunset Platinum cruise. This included dinner (bbq) & unlimited drinks, pick-up/drop-off, and 5 hours on board. We stopped to swim 3 times. The crew were fantastic, as were all the people we met on board. There is only 18 people maximum, so it’s not overcrowded like some trips.
I had a great time on the catamaran!Firstly, the staff were ultimate professionals, friendly, with a great sense of humor and helpful. There was a complete narration as to attractions and surroundings. Furthermore, the boat was very clean and they supplied all guests with towels for the swimming stops of the tour. We stopped 3 times to swim and ride along different coasts with unforgettable sceneries. Also, drinks were provided unlimited such as wine, beer, cola, soda and water. Last but not least, food was incredible authentic Greek cuisine, and more than we could eat.Ah! Don’t forget to mention also that the music was great and we were all dancing and singing with our souls!At the end of the tour we were all enchanted and for sure I will highly recommend this experience with VISTA YACHTING!Thank you for making my trip round the Santorini island quite an experience!

Very good experience overall. The food was more than enough, the drinks were really part of an open bar and the ship was more than enough to accommodate the group.The guides were very helpful and responsive at the group request, also it was a great music playlist.We would definitely recommend this company for these services.

This was a delightful sunset cruise. The crew is super friendly. The views and route are beautiful. The food was really good and the drinks were flowing. I only wish it had been a slightly smaller passenger load as there were only a few places to lay on deck, but people were really accommodating and sharing and we all got along and shared the sun.

This is a must do when in Santorini. Vista Yachting's day cruise was excellent. The crew was friendly and attentive. The boat had plenty of sunning spots, was very clean, and new. The BBQ was delicious with options to satisfy many dietary restrictions. The only minor negative was the hot springs were very crowded and can be difficult swimming around incoming boats - no fault of Vista. Very convenient departure from Vlychada Port, especially if your staying mid to southern part of Santorini. Free parking available and get there early. Overall, highly recommend Vista Yachting as an excellect value among many options.

Amazing morning cruise spent swimming, site seeing and with a great lunch on board to top it off. Pristine boat, friendly and informative crew, good background music, nice towels and floaties - it was worth every bit. Perfect length of cruise and great pickup shuttle organisation from our accomodation. Will do it again!

Amazing trip with Vista Cruising on their sunset 🌅 cruise. The views throughout the trip and the little stops and background around each beach and attraction was awesome. The Springs- The furthest part into the spring is warm around 30 Celsius but in May this year the water is colder than usual as we were told by the locals before we got into the water to swim to the spring. We were given a safety talk prior to leaving the catamaran, given noodles and given some history around the activity or the volcano. Don’t expect it to be hot but it is warm and the colour is amazing! Just wear a dark swimsuit to make sure you it doesn’t stain as they don’t come off. The overall trip was amazing from the pick up, food and entertainment! Nathalie- the cook, mama of the ship and entertainer was amazing!!!! The sunset was also awesome too. Myself and my friend had a blast! Couldn’t recommend more than anything that you need to do! 🤩 thank you to all the crew and captain 👩‍✈️

Absolutely recommend this tour to you. No matter you are solo or couple, family, this is the tour for you. The crew members are very attentive and friendly, they made sure that everyone had a great time. The drinks, including soft drinks and wine, are provided without limitation. The food cooked on board was also amazing. We stopped at three spots for swim, but I didn’t go swimming as the water was still very cold in April. At last, the highlight must be the sunset watching, it was fascinating and unforgettable, please note that the sunset watching was not in Oía, but an open sea south to the Santorini island, if you are particular about the place to watch sunset, you should know this.

Specifically, our Platinum cruise menu also offers BBQ pork, pasta with seafood, and the “mezedes” also have fish. Both cruises feature an open bar with white wine, refreshments, and water, but the Platinum cruise also offers an open beer bar which also serves sparkling Moscato D’Asti wine at sunset.

Get ready for an unforgettable catamaran Santorini cruise! You should pack things you would normally take on a day at the beach.

A hat, sunscreen, swimsuit (it’s best to choose a dark-colored bathing suit because Santorini’s volcano hot springs contain sulfur that can stain light-colored swimsuits), and a light jacket for the evening hour as it gets a bit chilly. Join our catamaran sunset cruise in Santorini, soak up the sun, swim & and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters of hidden gems and enjoy Santorini’s caldera view scenery while our crew captures unforgettable photos of you with Santorini’s sunset stunning colors on the background!

During a Santorini catamaran tour, you will have the opportunity to visit the famous White, Red and Black beaches, and make stops for swimming.

We offer two daily catamaran Santorini cruises, the day cruise and the sunset catamaran cruise, which both provide the opportunity to visit the highlights and hidden spots of the island, such as Red and White beaches and the volcano hot springs.

On the other hand, the Santorini catamaran sunset tour is perfect for couples looking for a more relaxed and romantic atmosphere, making it an ideal for special occasions, such as wedding proposals, or honeymooners. No matter which option you decide to go with,both catamaran cruises offer a unique perspective of Santorini’s beauties.
