Santorini Caldera Full-Day Cruise

An opportunity to sail and explore the mysterious caldera!

Santorini Beautiful View

Santorini Beautiful View

We'll start the day on the bus to Athinios port, where we will board the beautiful traditional boat “King Thiras,” our host for the day. Our first stop will be the lava islet Nea Kameni. We leave the boat and walk an ascending soil path to approach the crater of the still active Volcano. Afterward, we sail to the second lava islet called Palea Kameni, where we find the incredible Hot Springs. We'll have about half an hour to swim in the green sulphur waters, or to bathe in the therapeutic mud.

Next, we leave for the lovely tiny island of Thirassia, where we'll have a stay of about two hours. This will give you an opportunity to both swim at the beach near the port, and to explore the lovely town and its surroundings. When we re-board the boat, we'll begin to head in the direction of Oia, coming close to the caldera cliffs, so you will have the chance to take some superb photos. The colors and formations of the cliffs are impressive.

As the boat approaches Oia, we can see its white houses built on top of the red cliffs, resembling spreading snow. Here we have some excellent views of this picturesque village. The boat will continue to sail toward the port of Fira, where you can see the town clinging to the edge of the cliff, the cable car, the whitewashed houses and churches, the narrow twisting alleyways, and the laboring donkeys. We'll dock at Athinios port, where we board the buses for our return.

Notes:

Thick-soled shoes are suggested for our visit to the volcano. And don't forget your bathing suit! Languages spoken on the boat: Greek, English, Italian, Spanish, German. For passengers arriving to Santorini by cruise ship and wishing to take the same tour, arrangements can be made in advance, on request.
