beaches by boat on Santorini

I read on a web site tonight that on Santorini there are red and white beaches that are accessible by boat. This sounds like something I would like to try. Here are my questions:

How is this possible... meaning where do you go to get on a boat and is it like a boat taxi? can you just take a boat to the beach and then leave when you want? are there chairs to rent on these beaches and places to eat and get drinks or do you need to bring a picnic? also, is there any shade? (chair with umbrella or something like that is fine too) also do these beaches tend to be less crowded?

thank you for any advice and for your help

The water taxi makes a scheduled run starting on Kamari beach and ending up on either the Red or White beach, and also stopping at Perissa Beach. You will find a schedule posted somewhere on the beach. Just ask at a local shop where to go to catch the boat. There will be sun lounges and shade umbrellas on Kamari, Perissa and Red Beaches. Red and White beach won't be as crowded but they're also a lot smaller.
