  • 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: 5-Hour Catamaran Cruise with Meals and Drinks

    2. Santorini: 5-Hour Catamaran Cruise with Meals and Drinks

    Benefit from pick-up at your hotel, and then journey by air-conditioned minivan to board a luxury catamaran and take a 5-hour cruise off the coast of Santorini. Experience the romance and beauty of the island as you set sail from the southern port of Vlychada. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure and follow the coast to the red sands of Red Beach. Jump in for a swim in the shallow waters of a private beach, if you desire. Benefit from the services and amenities of a fully equipped vessel, including complimentary towels and snorkeling equipment. Venture below the imposing Indian Rocks and marvel at the sea caves and rock formations close to an old Venetian lighthouse. Get breathtaking views of the volcanic landscape as you travel through the middle of the caldera. Visit the hot springs for a healing mud bath, and then go to a private bay at Palea Kammeni Island to relax on deck ...

    Amazing experience! Food was delicious and crew was wonderful. This was the highlight of our whole time in Santorini. My only complaint is the size of the group was a little large for the size of the boat during covid times. We had to sit side by side, squeezed together to accommodate the 20 people.

  • Santorini Caldera: Catamaran Cruise with Lunch/Dinner & Bar

    3. Santorini Caldera: Catamaran Cruise with Lunch/Dinner & Bar

    Start your relaxing sunset cruise from old port Ammoudi and make a visit to Thirassia Island. Set sail to Palea Kameni for a swim at the famous Hot Springs, stop by the volcano for snorkeling or swimming, and see the Black Rock of the Indian, the White Beach, and the Red Beach. While sailing along the beautiful coastline, feel breathless as you admire the unique Caldera and the spectacular colors of the world–famous Santorinean sunset, before you enter the port of Vlychada. Opt to include either lunch or dinner served on board, complete with an open bar.

    The cruise was excellent, staff very informative and the lunch was delicious. The bar had only one beer and one white wine to choose from but many soft drink options. Only reason we give 4 stars is the company never contacted us about pick up time/place as they were supposed to. We needed to call up ourselves the morning of the booking.

Really you get what you pay for, well done for the organization! Knowing that you plan to add 5 euros at the entrance to the volcano park but it's worth the walk. The boat was spacious and very seaworthy (Hermes) The time allotted for the activities was perfect. Well coordinated shuttle bus transport

I loved the trip! The hot springs aren't really hot and the Captain Joe Restaurant in Therasia wasnt good! The rest was great!

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