    This great Premium small group Santorini Family Sailing Sunset Tour starts at 2:45 pm from Vlychada Port of Santorini. A brand new yacht will be waiting to welcome you and your family aboard.

    First Stop: Red Beach

    Your Sailing Sunset Tour begins at the famous ‘Red Beach’— the absolute definition of a volcanic beach. You and your kids will be amazed by this unique volcanic palette. It combines red, black, and white shades all in one beach as well as the impressive red rock formations.

    After a 30-minute stop for swimming and snorkeling at the ‘Red Beach’, you will jump on board.

    Second Stop: White Beach

    You will continue your Santorini Family Sailing Sunset Tour by heading towards another magnificent beach, the ‘White’ one. The gigantic white rocks surrounding the beach create a bizarre lunar landscape that will simply amaze you. Swimming in this stunning seascape of black, grey and white sand with large pebbles is an amazing experience.

    From the deck of the yacht, you will be able to admire the ancient Light House of Akrotiri. It is one of the oldest lighthouses in Greece. And of course, also the Indian Rock, which owns its name due to its shape looking like an Indian face.

    You will also sail close to the amphitheatrically built village of Akrotiri which offers amazing views. Akrotiri used to be a Minoan settlement and hence represents the most important archaeological site of Santorini island.

    After you enjoy swimming in these crystal clear waters a delicious barbecue will be waiting for you. On the deck of your yacht, you will relax and enjoy your lunch overlooking the imposing white cliffs.

    Third stop: the ‘Hot Springs’

    Have you ever experienced a family mud bath? Trust us, it’s a unique experience! For around 30 minutes, your kids will have the opportunity to swim in the sulfurous springs of the volcano. At the same time, you will enjoy a healing mud bath and feel the energy of the volcanic activity.

    After all these fun activities, it’s time for you to relax on your yacht’s deck. Simply gaze at one of the most famous sunsets in the world, the sunset of Oia. Prepare your cameras, embrace your family, and watch the sun literally dive in the Aegean Sea. The view is simply spectacular. The sky turns into a painter’s palette and nature creates a unique art masterpiece.

    Identify with your kids all the different colors and hues of the sky. And of course, admire the sun gradually becoming a small glowing dot.

    When the sun is set you will sail back to Ammoudi port. You should reach the port at around 7:45 pm. The minibusses will be waiting for you so as to drive you back to your hotel. Your Premium small group Santorini Family Sailing Sunset Tour may be over, but you will keep its amazing memories in your heart forever.

    A premium small group family sailing day tour is also offered daily and starts from Ammoudi port at 09:45 am.

    There is also the option for a Private family Sailing Tour that can be totally customized to your family’s needs.

    Small Group sailing day and sunset tours are also offered daily at yachts with a higher number of participants.

    • What a lovely way to spend the day! We loved our Sailing Tour in Santorini. We were traveling with 2 children, 2 parents, and 2 grandparents. All of us had a great time. The guides explained to us all about the caldera and the sights along the way. It was a windy day so we had to make some accommodations to the tour. But, it was still great. The food was delicious and the boat was impeccable. All around, a great trip! Thanks!

    • Hi there, We arrive in Santorini on the Norwegian Getaway on July 8th. The current itinerary has the boat arriving at 2pm and leaving at 10pm.
      I am not sure how quickly we can be off the boat — but I would really like to do this tour. Please let me know your thoughts. We’re a family of 5 – the kids are 19 years old, 14 years old and 14 years old (twins).

      • Hi Avril, thank you so much for your email. We have a GREAT experience with cruise passengers (families or not) who would like to get the best out of each destination so we can definitely recommend great tours for Mykonos and not only. Unfortunately in Santorini, you will not be able to do a semi-private sailing trip due to restrictions with time (private is possible, of course). Maria has already email you our recommendations for each stop! All the best.

    • Hello, how can I get the cost for both the semi-private morning & sunset cruise. We will be 1 adult and 2 kids (both 11 years old). Thanks,

      • Hello Rawia! Thank you so much for your interest in our Premium Sunset Sail cruise. This is one of our favorite activities in Santorini. You will definitely have a great time as a family. Maria has already sent you an email with all info you need. Looking forward to your email.
