Sail away with us on a memorable voyage.You will board our authentic Brigantine Thalassa at the picturesque old port of Fira.We will set sail for the small port of the volcano. When we arrive your guide will lead you up to the rim of the volcanic crater where smoke rises up and the stones are hot to the touch. Remember to bring good walking shoes and a hat to protect you from the sun.Leaving the volcano, our ship heads for the “hot springs”. There you can bathe in the warm waters (don’t forget your bathing suite and towel) . During the remainder of our voyage, we pass by Thirassia, where you have the chance to swim again in the blue crystal cleal waters while the captain and his crew prepare plenty of traditional Greek meze (appetizers) and you’ll have the chance to taste the renowned wine from Santorini. Next we come to the northern tip of Santorini and the town of Ia with its two small seaports Ammoudi and Armeni. From our sailing boat we have a unique vantage point for viewing the lovely traditional settlement of Ia. Here you can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.Then we will set the sails and head back to Fira enjoying the wine and live saxophone music as the sun magically sets into the sea. « less

My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed the sunset cruise onboard Thalassa. Christina was our guide and she met us at the old port at 2:30pm. The ship arrived soon after (around 2:45pm) and we departed for the volcano. The hike up the volcano is rather challenging. Shoes are recommended. Do bring your own water to keep yourself hydrated. Next stop... More

One of the highlights of my trip! The guide Christina kept us entertained as we hiked up the volcano telling stories/history about the volcano and the island of Santorini. The crew were very welcoming and friendly throughout the cruise. You are given plenty of time to swim in to different water locales. Make sure you take advantage of this!!! The... More

Was one of the greatest days ever!! The boat was so much fun and the visit to the volcano was really interesting especially hearing all about... More

Highly recommended! When seeing the number of people that could get on the boat we were first sceptical on the quality of the experience. Boat is actually very spacious and the crew is very friendly trying their best to make you comfortable during the whole trip. Places you'll see are the same than what other can propose but the ambiance... More

My friends and I decided to take this cruise on the last day of our vacation in Santorini and we had a wonderful day! Swimming at the hot springs of the volcano was really good and was accompanied by a second stop for swimming at crystal - clear, blue water near Thirassia Island. The dinner was a rich buffet of...

This review is a tad late, but so much worth writing! My husband and I arrived in Santorini after already being at a pretty active first island (no, not Mykanos. Crete!) for our honeymoon. We were really looking forward to some R&R! Well at least I was. We were told about this tour while checking into our hotel (see my... More
