Is Santorini sailing boat tour worth it?
A boat tour of the caldera is among my very favorite things to do in Santorini. Unforgettable and a must-do! Don’t worry too much about which tour you book – they’re all good. Emphasis should be on getting something booked in advance before they sell out for your dates.

> For your cruise experience, we recommend warm and dry clothing, sunglasses, sunscreen, and a sunhat.

> While on board, it is essential to adhere to the instructions provided by the captain and the crew.

Please be aware that yachts and boats in Greece cannot moor directly on the beach. At SANTOSAILS, we have carefully chosen the best spots for swimming and snorkeling, conveniently located near the beach.

> In the Santorini Hot Springs area, consider the following: Catamarans and yachts typically anchor 50 meters away from the warm sulfuric waters of the Hot Springs bay. The temperature in this area is approximately 4°C warmer than the open water. Swim securely near the Volcano, avoid contact with other boats, and opt for dark-colored swimwear.

> To facilitate smooth pick-up arrangements, please provide the name of your hotel or villa, along with contact details (either yours or your host’s), one day prior to the cruise.

> Bring a photo of your passport or ID card (in your phone device).

> For embarkation, kindly remove your shoes; our attentive crew will assist you with the process.

> Keep in mind that the duration of the cruise may vary throughout the season, especially for the sunset cruise.

Please note that the cruise itinerary and stops are subject to modification without prior notice in case of inclement weather.
