Santorini Caldera Cruise
Our traditional boat trip around the Santorini Caldera has two different options so you can choose the one that fits your preferences and timetable. You can choose to start the cruise in the morning to make the most of the day. Alternatively, if you want to catch the spectacular Greek sunset, you can opt for the afternoon departure.
The morning cruise
At 10:30 am, we will collect you from your hotel and then head to the ancient port of Ammoudi. There, we will board a traditional wooden sailing boat which will take us out onto the beautiful waters of the Aegean Sea.
During the journey, we will drop anchor near Red Beach and White Beach so that you can swim in the idyllic emerald waters and try some fun snorkeling. There is a huge variety of colorful, exotic fish waiting for you under the surface of the water.
Afterward, we continue sailing through the Aegean waters, passing the beautiful 19th-century Akrotiri Lighthouse sitting on top of the imposing Black mountain. You will also see the wonderful Indian rock formation.
Then we head to the coast of Palia Kameni so that you can take a relaxing dip in thermal volcanic pools which are famous for having a high quantity of minerals and properties which are good for the skin.
After bathing in the hot springs, we return to the boat and continue sailing to the coast of Therasia. Dropping anchor, you will then enjoy a delicious lunch of chicken, tzatziki, beans. fig leaves, salad, fruit, and a soft drink or white wine.
Feeling refreshed and energized, we will return to the port, arriving at around 3:30 pm.
The afternoon cruise
if you decide to take the afternoon cruise, we will follow the same itinerary as the morning trip but in the opposite direction. After collecting you from your hotel at 3:30 pm, we board the vessel. From there, we head towards Therasia island to admire the beautiful coastline from the deck of the boat and take a refreshing dip in the pristine emerald waters.
Then we continue to Palia Kameni to bathe and pamper our skin in the fabulous volcanic thermal pools. Later, our route passes the Black Mountain upon which sits the famous Santorini lighthouse. You will also see the imposing Indian Rock and the heavenly Red and White Beaches.
As the tour progresses and the sun starts to fall towards the horizon, the landscapes will be cast in a wonderful red and orange tones. As you enjoy the stunning Mediterranean sunset, you will enjoy a succulent dinner before we finally arrive back on dry land at around 8:30 pm.
