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.

Our office is a two-minute walk from the entrance of the cable car, and we can pick you up there if you arrive at our office Please ask the cruise ship company what time you are arriving as well as the time you need to be back at the old port of Fira.
