To begin with, there is ample choice when choosing a sailing vessel; from traditional boats to modern catamarans and speedboats, or to luxurious private yachts for an elevated experience, sailing the Aegean Sea was never more comfortable. Then, you can choose from a day or sunset sailing cruise. The itineraries feature stops to the island’s volcanic beaches such as the famous Red and White Beaches, the black sanded coasts and the steep rocky coves of the caldera. A visit to the volcano is part of every route and stops for swimming and snorkelling are scheduled as well. Keep in mind that most cruises in Santorini include barbeque meals with lots of traditional delicacies and beverages for extra fun on-board.
