Are you Santorini bound for the first time in your life? How delightful! As experts in Santorini sailing, trust in us to inform you about the top picks for first-time cruises in Santorini. In one sense, we feel a bit envious, as we cannot resonate with the feeling of seeing Santorini for the first time. Being born and bred on this enchanting island means we have lost touch with the novelty of witnessing Santorini’s magnificence for the first time. Like most things in this life, some you win, some you lose, and what we stand to gain is the fulfillment that floods our soul, and being endlessly grateful for having the immaculate Santorini as our home, day in, day out.
Come aboard and embark upon a sea voyage around the best spots of Santorini with us, that will reveal the most famed locations of the island from the unique vantage point of Santorini cruises. These include the iconic Red and White beaches and ample snorkelling stops for admiring the wonderful underwater world. We reach the cape of Akrotiri and its Venetian lighthouse before entering the Caldera bay which gives you the opportunity to see the clifftop settlements from below, in a way you’ve not seen them before. And last but not least, we approach the notorious volcano, and let you sense its powerful aura as you contemplate that it was this natural phenomenon that was responsible for the what Santorini is today. We provide the routes, yet you decide how and when.
1. First-time cruises in Santorini: Day time
The Greek sun is a glorious thing. Having been exalted by writers throughout the ages, there is something almost divine about the way it caresses every surface it reflects upon. The same scene can look so dramatically different by day versus its night version. While during the evening everything seems more mesmerising under the moonlight, the daylight reveals the full extent of sublime splendour. For fully experiencing the fascination of Santorini by day, our top pick for first-time cruises in Santorini is our semi private Daytime standard cruise.
2. First-time cruises in Santorini: Sunset
The most famous characteristic of Santorini is undoubtedly the astonishing sunset that paints the sky in a myriad of colours, making a sunset sailing trip simple unmissable especially when considering first-time cruises in Santorini. While most visitors will clamour on the narrow streets of Oia village in order to get a glimpse of the remarkable natural spectacle of the sun dipping into the sea, leaving behind it an entire rainbow of sunset hues, our recommendation is to experience it from the best possible seat; at sea with our Santorini sunset cruise.
