Santorini Caldera Traditional 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'll pick you up from your hotel and then head to the ancient port of Ammoudi. There, we'll board a traditional wooden sailing boat which will take us out onto the beautiful Aegean Sea.

During the journey, we'll anchor near Red Beach and White Beach so that you can swim in the idyllic emerald waters and try some fun snorkelling. There is a huge variety of colourful, exotic fish waiting for you under the surface of the water.

Afterwards, we'll continue sailing through the Aegean waters, passing the beautiful 19th-century Akrotiri Lighthouse sitting on top of the imposing Black mountain. You'll also see the wonderful Indian rock formation.

Then we'll head to the Palia Kameni coast 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.

The boat will then continue sailing to the coast of Therasia. Where you'll enjoy a delicious lunch consisting of chicken, tzatziki, beans. fig leaves, salad, fruit, and a soft drink or white wine.

Feeling refreshed and energized, we'll return to the port, arriving at around 3:30 pm.

The afternoon cruise

If you decide to take the afternoon cruise, we'll follow the same itinerary as the morning trip but in the opposite direction. We'll pick you up from your hotel at 3:30 pm and we head towards Therasia island. Here we'll admire the beautiful coastline from the deck of the boat and take a refreshing dip in the pristine emerald waters.

Next, we'll go 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'll 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 wonderful red and orange tones. As you watch the stunning Mediterranean sunset, you'll enjoy a succulent dinner before we finally arrive back on dry land at around 8:30 pm.
