Welcome to the world of large sailing catamarans! Rent a Lagoon 500 catamaran in Santorini and spend the day… on 15 meters of luxury and high technology!

Lagoon 500 was constructed in 2009 and completely renovated in 2016. The catamaran is 50 feet long, and the transition to this class is reflected in all dimensions: the sailing catamaran is much wider and more spacious than shorter models.

To create the five hundredth model, the Lagoon shipyard team entrusted designers Marc Van Peteghem and Vincent Lauriot Prevost with the challenging task of designing a catamaran for long sea cruises that includes just about everything you need… at home, so it includes all the necessary amenities for a comfortable living experience! The main idea of the Lagoon 500 design was to create a sailing catamaran as much like a comfortable home or even a hotel as possible. The task was successfully completed. Now, you can rent a sailing catamaran that offers both elegance and comfort and can accommodate up to 20 guests!

The itinerary for the Lagoon 500 catamaran trip in Santorini includes all the most beautiful sights of the sea in the volcano’s caldera:

  • White Beach;
  • Red Beach;
  • Ancient lighthouse and Akrotiri peninsula;
  • Caldera of Santoniri volcano;
  • Thirasia island;
  • Nea Kameni volcano;
  • Hot springs near Palea Kameni.

Lunch (or dinner if you wish to rent a catamaran for the evening) and our local Santorini wine, beer and soft drinks for all guests await you on the Lagoon 500 catamaran ride.

Are you staying on our island with a large family or do you want to relax alone on a spacious catamaran? Choose the Lagoon 500 and we will take care of everything else!

Renting a Lagoon 500 catamaran for the first half of the day is great not only to ride and explore the Caldera of Santorini, but also to swim in the open sea and sunbathe on deck.

If you decide to rent a catamaran in the afternoon, in addition to taking the same route, you can watch the sunset at sea. The duration and schedule of the evening trip may vary slightly depending on the time of sunset during the season. Approximate sunset time in Santorini this week is 20:28.

IMPORTANT NOTE: the number of catamarans in Santorini is limited and they are always in high demand. It is better to rent a catamaran in advance – 2-3 weeks before the dates you need. During the high season (from May to September) a catamaran can be occupied every day for several weeks in a row.

If you are booking a catamaran close to your desired dates, please ask our managers about the availability of a free catamaran for the desired day before making payment.

Important details

Please read Cancellation and Refund policy.

In case there are less than 24 hours left before the trip, please book only after agreeing with the manager on availability.

Before going to sea, it is necessary to issue some special documents (forms with information regarding route, crew and all passengers). To do this, we need the full name (as in the passport), gender, age and citizenship of all participants. If you already have this information, you can write it in the comments field when placing an order.

You will receive your tickets by email or WhatsApp – whichever is more convenient for you.

Please keep all documents and tickets until the end of the trip!

It depends on the location of your hotel or villa. Some cities of Santorini are famous for their narrow streets, which are not so easy to walk even on foot. So in some cases you will need to walk to the main road, some nearest square or parking place, where a car or a tour bus can pick you up. If your hotel has good road access, then the transfer will be able to pick you up directly from the hotel.

After placing an order, you will receive detailed information about the place and time of the meeting, as well as all the necessary documents. Please read them carefully beforehand.

During the season in Santorini there is a lot of sun and very little shade. So you will definitely need sun protection: special cream, glasses, headwear, and so on. If there is a possibility of motion sickness in transport, we recommend that you take appropriate pills an hour and a half before departure. If you plan to sunbathe and swim, bring your swimwear. There are towels, masks, snorkels and flippers on the catamaran. If you choose the sunset option, make sure you have some warm clothing with you, as even on a hot day it can be chilly in the sea at night.

All passengers on board should have their passport or ID card with them in case the port authority performs a check of the ship. A paper copy or a photo on a cellphone will be sufficient.

If the weather does not allow you to make the catamaran trip in Santorini, we will try to reschedule it for the next day with good weather. If there is no such date, we will refund the entire amount of your payment.
