Cruise Videos

My crew and I welcome you aboard the  S/Y Eleftheria  for a day of relaxation.  Eleftheria is a one of a kind" Trechandiri
the "all Greek" wooden sail-boat.  The boat was designed especially for the Aegean to be as stable as possible and the name
relates to a fast boat used to transfer people and goods to the Islands.
The S/Y Eleftheria is the only Greek traditional wooden boat departing from Vlyhada port and cruising to the caldera.

 Feel the difference with the original and best cruise on Santorini.

Daily, at 10.00 & 15:30, we depart from VLYCHADA .
On the way, you can enjoy, having drinks, listening to music, sunbathing, swimming or just plain basking in the sun  r-e-l-a-x-i-n-g.

The advantages of the Vlychada departures is that on the way to the Volcano you can see and swim at the Red and White beach,
sail past the Venetian Lighthouse (Faros) and enter the Caldera from the south which has the best view of
Fira,  Imerovigli,the Old Port and the Volcano. Swim at the  Hot Springs and Aspronisi, and see the sun set on the horizon.

The Best of Santorini all in one cruise.                                                    Watch Video           livestream-logo
