More Details:

Experience the ultimate luxury catamaran cruise on Crete, departing from all destinations on the island. Step aboard a spacious and stylish catamaran, where you will be greeted by a professional and friendly crew who will ensure your every need is catered to throughout the journey.As the catamaran sets sail, you will have the opportunity to take in the breathtaking coastal scenery of Crete from the deck, with the crystal-clear waters and rugged landscape creating a stunning backdrop. Relax in the sun on comfortable loungers or seek shade in the shaded areas as you sip on refreshing drinks served by the attentive crew. During the cruise, you can indulge in a decadent meal prepared using the freshest local ingredients. The quality of the food and drinks is paramount. The operator is buying goods and wine from nearby vineyards and farmers. They select cheeses, seafood, fresh veggies, fruits, pastries, and desserts for their own family. They serve pasta or nuggets to children. Tell us about any specific requests the child may have, and we will take them into consideration. We can make vegetarian or gluten-free food based on your needs.As you savor the flavors of Crete while dining al fresco on the deck, take in the breathtaking views of the Mediterranean. For those seeking adventure, the catamaran is equipped with a range of water toys and equipment, allowing you to snorkel, swim, or try your hand at stand-up paddleboarding in the azure waters of the Aegean Sea.Whether you are looking for a romantic escape, a family adventure, or a special celebration, a private luxury catamaran cruise in Crete offers an unparalleled experience, creating unforgettable memories of your time in this stunning destination. A full-day yacht trip is more suitable for people who prefer to share experiences with their own company or who don't like to follow schedules. Hiring a boat with a skipper allows you to travel leisurely to some of Crete's most picturesque locations.
We want to make you feel at home on our boards because we respect your comfort.
Yachts offer a kid-friendly atmosphere. Children can take naps during the day in the cabins, while older youngsters can enjoy a variety of engaging table games on board. Water carpets, full-face masks, fishing poles, SUPs, fins for snorkeling, armbands, and life jackets for safe swimming are a few examples of seaside fun.
The captain will advise where to sail best. We can visit a few places and drop the anchor in the most gorgeous bay if the spirit of adventure appeals to you. There will be plenty of excellent shots. You can also extend an invitation to a professional photographer. Tell us about your plans, and we'll take care of the rest.
Mediterranean yacht excursions leave from the ports of Agios Nikolaos, Hersonissos, Heraklion, and Rethymno. We can set up a transfer if your hotel is located somewhere else (like Chania or Elounda).

EXCLUSIVE SANTORINI 2 days of cruise: The catamaran can accommodate up to 8 guests and 2 crew members. We leave from Heraklion or Hersonissos ports in the evening between 22:00 and 23:00. If necessary, we will arrange a transfer from any region of Crete. Boat hire includes fuel, crew, soft drinks, white wine, beer, a welcome cheese plate, fruits, and breakfast on board.

We have prepared three possible sea excursions on a yacht.

First

Start from the volcano on Nea Kameni, Santorini’s business card. From here, there are stunning views. An unusual landscape is a beautiful background for amazing photos.

Then sail to the red, white, or black beach. Choose based on sand color or privacy. There are fully organized beaches with various amenities, a children's zone, a diving center, shops, and a cafe. And at the same time, there are quiet, non-touristic locations where you can feel better about nature and enjoy Greek flavors in fishermen's taverns.

Lunch and dinner are not included in the price. The captain can recommend nearby places where you can have a good-quality meal.

Second

A guided tour on a minivan departs from Vlychada port, where we come with a catamaran. You will visit the Venetian fortress and the Orthodox Church of St. Sozont in Oia. A special pleasure is a trip to Fira. The combination of azure waters and snow-white houses here is calling for a shot. Scenic views and interesting stories await you.

In the evening, I met the famous sunset on a yacht. Perfect timing to tell your soul mate about your love. Or make a proposal. On board, we always have a cooled champagne bottle for such occasions.

This program also does not include meals. Try traditional dishes in restaurants with panoramic views of the Aegean Sea. And taste delicious authentic wine: «Vinsanto» with notes of citrus fruits, figs, and coffee; dry «Assyrtiko»; or fortified «Nychteri».

Third

Cruise along the coast. You can choose your own route and places to drop the anchor or let us plan a day for you.

Lunch and dinner are included in this option. We cook dishes from Mediterranean cuisine with fresh ingredients that we purchase from Cretan farmers. If you want a special menu, tell us about it in advance, and we will prepare your favorite food.

At about 21.00, we set off for the return journey.
