8. Santorini: Luxury Motoryacht Cruise
Feel the breeze, sunlight, waves, and adrenaline all at once on a luxury motor yacht cruise around Santorini.
Start with a private transfer from your hotel and arrive at the marina where your Fairline Targa 43 motor yacht awaits. The captain will welcome you on board and help you create a curated trip to visit all the highlights of the south coast of Santorini and the Caldera.
On this cruise, the luxurious deck of the motor yacht is your private oasis. The staff onboard will be offering quality mezedes (Greek finger food), local wine, beer, and refreshments.
Cruise towards the island's colorful beaches while the crew shares all of Santorini's secrets, its history, and how the beautiful scenery and shape are the result of volcanic activity years ago. You can choose where to stop and for how long. You will have plenty of time to swim and snorkel.
See the famous Red Beach and take pictures of its reddish hues and wild cliff formations. Cruise along the sandy shores of White Beach, surrounded by bright limestone cliffs, and dive into the pristine waters of Mesa Pigadia, the Black Beach. Close by, admire stunning views of the caves and impressive rock formations of the Indian Rocks, which are accessible only by boat.
Cruise past the 18th-century Venetian Lighthouse of Akrotiri, located on the southwestern tip of the island, and continue your journey by entering the waters of Santorini’s caldera. The view here, of the villages on the cliff, creates a postcard-perfect portrait that looks like a distant snow-capped mountain range.
The yacht will then head towards the renowned Volcano for a stop at the sulfur-rich hot springs for a relaxing dip into its healing and detoxifying waters. Another stop for swimming beneath the breathtaking cliff of Oia is highly recommended.
For lunch or dinner, this journey brings you to Thirasia, a charming island with fewer than 200 inhabitants. Visit a traditional restaurant where you can choose from 3 different menus, featuring meat, fish, or vegetarian options. A fine dining experience can also be arranged at a restaurant in Thirasia at an extra cost.
