Activity description

Calling all adventurers! Explore the Santorini Volcano, soak in the hot springs, and discover scenic islands on this 10-hour boat cruise in Santorini from Athinios Port! Welcoming adventurers of all ages. 

Located on Greece's picturesque island of Santorini, situated in the southern Aegean Sea, the Santorini Volcano (also known as the 'Thera Volcano') is an active volcano that is part of a larger volcano complex which includes several other islands. If you're searching for a unique and fun way to explore this incredible region while learning more about its history and geology, this sunset and volcano boat cruise in Santorini from Oia is for you! 

The adventure begins after being picked up from your accommodations in Santorini (please specify when booking). You'll board the transfer to Athinios Port where your seasoned Captain and Guide will be waiting for you. After boarding the ship, you and your group (a maximum of 150 participants) will receive a safety and itinerary briefing. Then, the fun starts! Your Captain will set a course for the Santorini Volcano. Relax and enjoy the picturesque panorama as you cruise.

Upon your arrival, you'll disembark for a guided walking tour of the volcano's ridge. As you marvel at this unique natural phenomenon, your guide will share fascinating facts about the history and geology of this unparalleled site. Back onboard, you'll sail to Palea Kameni Island, home to the renowned hot springs. Fed by the volcano, the waters of the hot springs are mixed with mud infused with sulfur, iron, and other metals and are reported to have therapeutic properties. A short distance away is Agios Nicholao’s Beach, participants are welcome to swim there but are advised to have strong swimming skills. 

Your boat cruise in Santorini continues to Thirassia Island for 2 hours of exploration and relaxation. This charming village has a variety of traditional Greek cuisine options (not included in the ticket price). Toast to the Greek sun and your loved ones as you enjoy Greek delicacies! At the end of the day, as the vibrant colours of the setting sun grace the sky, you'll return to the original departure point at Athinios Port.
