A great way to escape the summer heat is to be surrounded by the coolness of the sea, feel the waves and wind and, of course, observe our island from the sea. Do you want to do it in silence and without crowds of tourists – just the two of you or with your group of friends or family? Charter the Beneteau Oceanis 45 sailing yacht, a large and spacious forty-five feet sailboat with skipper and crew.

The Oceanis 45 sailing yacht was built in 2018 and is one of Beneteau yard’s newest models. Measuring 45 feet (nearly 14 meters), it features 4 cabins, a spacious saloon, and a fully equipped kitchen on board. She is favorably designed with a spacious saloon, wide deck and sitting areas on the stern and foredeck. She is perfect for relaxation at sea!

Your yacht – your rules: on this trip you can plan the itinerary on your own or with our help. If you rent a sailing yacht in Santorini for 5 hours, you will be able to experience literally all the key attractions of the volcano’s caldera – the basic itinerary of the trip is in the slideshow of yacht photos above. It is possible to vary the itinerary and, for instance, select the most captivating locations to spend more time at:

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

The skipper will navigate the sailboat to the most interesting sights of the caldera, and during the trip lunch (or dinner, if you want to sail in the evening), as well as our local Santorini wine, beer and soft drinks will be waiting for you.

The Oceanis 45 is ideal for a romantic trip for two around the caldera or for an event: the yacht can accommodate up to 8 guests, not including the skipper and assistants. Whether it’s a birthday or a wedding on a yacht, we can arrange any event!

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 yacht. 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 yacht 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.
