Old pirate ship, great staff, 10/10 experience

I booked this excursion for my boyfriend’s birthday and it was our favorite experience from our trip to santorini. They send you an address for pickup, but it can be a bit confusing, so ask the locals if you can’t figure it out and they will direct you. Once aboard, you sail to a volcano, 2 swimming spots, and watch the sunset while you eat before returning home. - The boat can be quite windy/shaky so hold on to your hats/drinks. - The volcano hike is a bit strenuous and takes about an hour in total. - The swim is amazing and you must do it. - The sunset is a must-see from the water. - Food is okay and there are plenty of drinks on board. - BONUS: the staff is SO friendly and amazing (speaking 5 languages). They teach you traditional Greek dancing to round out your trip. [13:30-21:00 from pickup to drop off; 6 hours on the boat but it doesn’t feel too long] 10/10 would recommend to anyone!

Santorini Volcano and Thirassia Sunset Dinner Cruise Reviewed by

Great experience; missed the sails; slightly disorganized ride home

Pretty quick start up after pick up; great views and tour style information back and forth by the island; beautiful sunset; wish we had actually used the sails instead of just the gas-guzzling engine the whole time; the food was spectacularly delicious, even for vegans and vegetarians; clean facilities; but the drop off guy went by our hotel (2 minutes away) and drove 20+ minutes out of the way, even though we said something - he totally apologized for the confusion though. Lastly, the drop off point is not back at the port, and shows you a ROMANTIC point of interest to come back to the next day simply called The Beach - the company's private island with actual sun beds. I really wish I had gone toward the beginning of my trip so I could have known to visit that beach!! It's SO CUTE.

DreamCatcher Sunset Sailing Cruise in the Caldera Reviewed by

Great day spent on the water around the caldera.

The crew made this one of the highlights of our time in Santorini, and a must do for those who are there for more than a day or 2. The spots we stopped and swam highlighted the variety of geologic composition that makes up Santorini, and the views from the water are nothing short of breathtaking. The end of the cruise was definitely the cherry on top. To watch the sunset from the water north of Oia is simply breathtaking and was worth the trip in itself. I would recommend this experience to any that travel to Santorini.

DON'T LEAVE THE ISLAND WITHOUT DOING THIS!!!

Do yourself a favor and book this adventure now. The fun you will have on this Catamaran defies all preconceived notions of what you typically do on a boat cruise. Think of an American style sunset cruise with restrictions, limitations, liabilities, and "fun-sucking" attitudes - got it? - great - this is the exact opposite of that!!!!! Get out there and go have a blast with the crew!

Great way to see Santorini and the beaches

The crew was excellent! Very attentive with drinks, towels and giving us the history of Santorini. The lunch was also delicious with grilled chicken, shrimp and various salads. It was very relaxing. We stopped at 3 swimming areas but only went into the water once because the water was cold in June. Overall it was a great day and I would recommend it.
