Santorini Caldera Boat Cruise

136 reviews | 1,433 travellers
Very well organized from the meeting point to the end. The bus arrived on time and had our names on it. From there the boat tour with commentary from the guide Spyros in several languages was excellent. He is at all times aware of the details, which is what makes the difference in tourism. For the service and the spectacular scenery it is 100% recommended. The only thing that should be corrected in the detail of Civitatis is that the transfer to Oia is from the port of Santorini

Santorini Caldera Boat Cruise Itinerary

Having been picked up from your nearest meeting point between 8:25 am and 9:15 am, you'll be taken straight to Athinios port, located on the west coast of Santorini island.

Once you've made yourself comfortable on board the boat, you'll set sail across Santorini Caldera. This part of the Aegean Sea, formed by a volcanic eruption many thousands of years ago, is full of incredible surprises. After a 20-minute cruise, you'll reach the first of many: the uninhabited island of Nea Kameni.

Disembarking on Nea Kameni, you'll set off on a short hiking route of around 30 minutes up to the volcano crater. From the heights of this vantage point, you'll enjoy incomparable panoramic views over the Aegean Sea and surrounding islands, one of which will be the next stop on your boat trip. Sail over to the neighbouring island of Palea Kameni, where you'll have the opportunity to bathe in the crystal-clear waters of the Hot Springs: a truly relaxing experience!

Having enjoyed your time in Palea Kameni, you'll be taken to Thirassia Island, the largest in the Santorini Caldera. Here, you'll have 2hours of free time to explore the isle at your own pace: swim in the sparkling sea, indulge in a delicious lunch at a traditional Greek restaurant, or stroll through the picturesque village.

Then in the evening, we'll head back to the Thirasia port. Here you'll have the option to head back to the Athinios port, where we'll take you back to the chosen pick up point between 6 and 7 pm. At the Thirasia port you'll also have the opportunity to continue,  sailing to the Armeni port. From here you can climb the 300 stairs that take you to the city of Oia.

In Oia you'll enjoy one of Greece's most beautiful sunsets - undoubtedly the cherry on the cake! The return transfer then is paid for separately.
