Taking a Santorini Sunset Cruise
Taking a Santorini sunset cruise is an experience you will not soon forget. If Santorini is known for one thing, that is its absolutely enthralling sunset. Those who have set eyes on it claim to have been utterly mesmerised by its magnificence, with the dying sun leaving behind an entire sky to tell its melancholic tale. Pinks and purples, oranges and yellows, reveal nature’s greatest masterpiece that uses the sky as its canvas to create emotions of awe, inspiration and of course romance. So we have established that watching the sunset is a must do, while vacationing in Santorini. And what is the best way to enjoy this magical, one of a kind sunset? Most people would say Oia, and it is, however, it is far from being considered an intimate spot, simply because it is so popular and hordes of visitors cram its narrow cobblestone streets to get a glimpse of the natural spectacle at dusk. Our alternative guarantees the best sunset views in Santorini, as well as giving you a privacy level that will further amplify the visual impact of the enchanting sunset. Consider embarking on a voyage across the Aegean to chase the sun until it has faded, aboard a modern vessel that takes you around Santorini’s coast and beyond, to the most beautiful spots, packing your mind with visuals you will cherish for a lifetime.
Semi-private Santorini Sunset Cruise with Luxury Catamaran
A semi- private Santorini luxury catamaran sunset cruise is perfect for groups of friends who wish to interact with other people too, since our semi private cruises host up to 18 passengers. Our Spiridakos Sailing Cruises’ Catamaran sets sail from Vlychada at approximately 3.30 pm so there is plenty to see and do before sundown, where our sailing excursion reaches its zenith. Of course, we take you to all the top attractions such as the iconic, colourful beaches that you can enjoy from a different than usual vantage point. We make regular swim stops as the crew prepares a delicious, complimentary BBQ dinner. We sail round the Akrotiri Cape and the striking lighthouse, and into the Caldera as the white, clifftop settlements of Fira and Imerovigli slowly reveal themselves up above. Next, we go to discover the volcanic aspect of Santorini by sailing towards the volcanic islands, passing by some impressive basalt and pumice rock formations before reaching the crater. Thereabouts, we stop for another swim, at the thermal springs for whoever wishes to try a natural spa experience, before its time to sail into the open sea below Oia and soak up the indescribable vibes of the sun setting over the calm sea.
Our semi-private cruises also have an element of fun to them. Our crew is handpicked not only for their sailing expertise and knowing Santorinian water, but also for their genuine enthusiasm in making sure all passengers are having a great time. Expect music, a bit of dancing and general high spirits aboard our cruises, which combined with disarming visuals, could be the highlight of your entire trip.
