Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: The excursion stars from the meeting point of your village, where a bus* will pick you up and will drive you to Athinios port for embarkation!The first stop of your adventure is the volcano of Santorini in Nea Kameni Island, where you will have the opportunity to climb on the top of the volcano, see and take photos of the active crater and walk on its rims which is a unique experience!The next destination is Palia Kameni where you will dive and swim in the hot springs created by the underwater powers of the volcano!Sailing above the underwater craters from Palia Kameni to Thirasia Island, the boat will anchor close to the island and you will have the time to ship with your wine. Dinner buffet is served!!! Enjoy the endless blue in the famous Caldera of Santorini and the picturesque villages on top! In the north cape of Santorini you will admire the magical view of Oia village with its small famous white houses!The end of the excursion comes on sunset time. The boat sets sails and the sun dives to the sea. This is the most unforgettable experience. Your trip in Santorini in this sanctuary of romance is going to be in your memories and your hearts forever!*If you wish to avoid the bus service, you can take the boat from the old port of Fira at 15:15 and you can disembark at the old port of Fira where the boat sails right after Athinios port.

We chose the 2pm volcano cruise with a swim in the hot springs. The afternoon cruises seem to be a bit quieter. The whole experience was great. A brisk walk up the volcano (2.5 euro extra) a quiet beer a great guide, and a swim in warm water. What more could you want for 20 euro.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip out on the boat however we do wish we had asked more relevant questions regarding the trip before we went, so any negativity regarding this is our own doing (I think possible that we may have left some of our commonsense at home lol) - I am writing this review in the hope that other guests will ask the right questions before going.The day trip included a visit to the volcano, hot springs, lunch ashore in a small harbour, and sunset at Oia. I have mild walking difficulties so chose not to go ashore for the volcano as this involved walking across rather rough ground with a very steep ascent, and obviously no shade from the sun. I chose to stay onboard at the hot springs - access to these are by climbing down the boat ladder into deep water and swimming about 50 meters to the hot springs. Then obviously swimming the 50 meters back to the boat and climbing back on board via the ladder. The trip ashore for lunch was fine if you stay in the harbour restaurants. You can also choose to climb (about 30 minutes - very steep) to the village at the top of the hill. We chose not to go ashore for the sunset at Oia as this also involved a very steep 30 minute climb to Oia village from where the boat docked. There was an option to hire a donkey for this climb. The boat dropped guests off here at about 5pm to watch the sunset from the village about 9pm. The guests choosing to watch the sunset then met with coaches to take them back to relevant drop off points. The guests who chose not to watch the sunset remained on the boat which returned them to the starting point at about 6pm, then coaches back to the starting point. Having said all this, we still did enjoy our day on the boat and seeing the fabulous scenery. If you choose to do this trip, please make sure you have swimwear, towel, comfy walking shoes, hat, and plenty of suncream.

My husband & I had the best 5 hour catermeran Cruise around Santorini Island . We were collected from our Hotel In imerovigli & driven to Amoudi Bay , Oia then with a great bunch of people from all over the world explored Santorini from the ocean.
The staff on board were proffessional, informative, polite, warm & friendly.
Especially Maria who cooked us a delicious seafood BBQ, pasta & salad lunch.
We were served delicious Mojitos & Margaritas.
My husband & I enjoyed. Ring able to go for a swim in the Bluest of water in 5 locations around Santorini.
Eg: Red, Black &white beach.
The atmosphere on the boat was chilled & relaxed & the Music was so cool. At one stage 3 catermeran’s lined up and people on board were having a dance off. So much fun!
I have been recommending this cruise to everyone. It’s great to see Santorini from this perspective.
Thank you to Captain Leo for a great day out.

There were six of us from my wedding in Santorini that took this boat tour for my bridal brunch and bachelorette party. The cruise is totally family friendly but offers a fun atmosphere to have a few drinks and enjoy the tour.

They offer 4 different tours ranging from €20- €75 ($23- $86) based on what experience you’re looking for. We took the evening tour which included dinner, a drink, hot springs, volcano tour and an unobstructed view of Greece’s best sunset.

The boat we took was beautiful and luxurious for an affordable price. It was a perfect opportunity to visit the hot springs in style. We all jumped and back flipped off the boat in the hot springs and they even gave us noodles to float on.

Dinner was delicious and filling and the one drink turned into many as they had left over wine they offered us after everyone had one. The boat captain and crew were incredibly friendly and entertaining. They led a polka after sunset on our way back to the port. Can’t say I thought I was ever going to dance the polka at sea, but why not?

I would recommend this tour for families with older children, couples, and friends.
