Santorini Volcanic Islands Cruise: Volcano, Hot Springs and Thirassia
From $40.55
This tour provides a stress-free overview of Santorini’s natural and historic beauty, making it ideal for first-time visitors and travelers with limited time. In air-conditioned comfort, you’ll travel between Santorini highlights such as Ancient Thira, Santorini Hot Springs, and the volcanic crater of Nea Kameni. As your guide drives, you’ll avoid the hassle of navigating unfamiliar roads, leaving you free to focus on the spectacular island scenery.
What to Expect
Depart by bus to Athinios port and embank on a unique greek traditional boat. First set sail for the lava islet of Nea Kameni, known as the Volcano. Walk an ascending path to the crater of the still active volcano to enjoy incredible sights (1,5hours).
Return to boat and continue to the second lava islet called Palea Kameni. Dive to find its Hot Springs and have the chance to swim in green sulfur waters. 
Next is the traditional island of Thirassia for free time at leisure(1,5hours). You can visit the village of Manolas, which is accessed by riding a donkey or walking its winding stairs, or you can relax at the picturesque small port of Thirassia to swim and have lunch.
Back on the boat, cruise under Oia Village before heading back to Athinios.

Excellent Trip, highly recommended

We were initially dubious based on the other reviews but this turned out to be an excellent trip and well worth the low price we paid for it. First off, we were collected from right near our hotel in Perissa and taken to the port,...More

You get what you pay for!

Well organised trip but think twice if you are going in the high season and don’t like mass tourism. The boat was VERY crowded and we generally arrived at each destination with at least 2 other similar boats, which meant that there were huge crowds...More
