  • Santorini: Volcanic Islands Cruise with Hot Springs Visit

    1. Santorini: Volcanic Islands Cruise with Hot Springs Visit

    Sail from Athinios Port to small islands that are home to volcanos, hot springs and traditional villages. Stop at Nea Kameni and take the path to the crater of the active volcano. Enjoy free time to explore the island. Next, head to Palea Kameni, and swim in the hot springs. Return to the boat for a short sail to Thirassia, where you’ll have free time to explore. Visit Manolas, accessed by winding stairs, or by a donkey ride up to the village. There is the option of extending the tour in Oia to admire the panoramic views and a spectacular sunset. This option is running from 1 May to 21 September. Depending on the option chosen, the duration of the tour is 6 or 10 hours. If this option is selected, after the end of the boat ride you will be transferred to Oia. Please meet your bus at the meeting point 15 minutes after the sunset.

    Fun day. It was a little chaotic getting the correct bus on the way back, but otherwise there were no issues.

  • Santorini: Premium Catamaran Cruise with Fresh BBQ & Drinks

    2. Santorini: Premium Catamaran Cruise with Fresh BBQ & Drinks

    Climb aboard the 74-foot Ocean Voyager or the 80-foot Tahiti catamaran for a 5-hour sunset cruise around Santorini in the Aegean Sea. Set off on a journey of discovery that will first take you to the hot springs, then the Red Beach and finally the White Beach. You will start at the Ammoudi Port of Oia or at your hotel, if you upgrade to include a hotel pickup and drop-off service, and set sail for beautiful Red Beach to swim and snorkel for 30 minutes. Continue to a secluded White Beach, only accessible from the sea, for more swimming and snorkeling in the shadow of the towering white cliffs. Onboard the catamaran, savor a barbecue supper of salads and grilled meat and veggie options. Continue sailing inside the crescent-shaped Caldera, close to the volcano, and enjoy a final dip in the Hot Springs, before sailing back to Oia as the day ends with a spectacular sunset.

    My husband and I had so much fun on this catamaran trip. The views were gorgeous and we stopped twice to get in the water which was so much fun. They barbecued on the boat so we had a delicious, fresh meal. The sunset was obviously the highlight, and it was so special to see it from the water. They also brought us a special cocktail while we watched the sunset. It was also a huge bonus that they pick you up and drop you off as well since transportation to the port can be kind of tricky. Highly recommend!!

    Amazing experience! Food was delicious and crew was wonderful. This was the highlight of our whole time in Santorini.

    Paulo and Katarina were amazing hosts -- friendly, helpful, great sailors and great cooks! Of all the money I spent in Santorini (too much!), this was probably the best value. Paying up for the PRIVATE catamaran tour gives you the flexibility to choose your destinations, how long you stay at each, etc. For example, we were able to go to the white Island, swim up to its beach and spend nearly an hour there swimming and exploring the island. Apparently, because of the wind, this is a rarity. We were the only people on the island or even anywhere near. It was a true paradise experience.

Anchor for a delicious meal served on board, which you can savor with wine and dessert.  After, start the return route to the port of Vlychada, and sail to the magic of Caldera and southern part of the island.

    The crew was very friendly, the food was tasty and the boat was very nice and clean. The driver was late for both pickup and drop-off

It was an amazing tour! Food was great guides were awesome and views spectacular. Hot springs were not hot that’s the only negative.

We have no regrets, one of the best decisions we have made on this trip.
