Highlights
    What to Expect
    After hotel pickup in Thira, Kamari or Perissa, travel by air-conditioned vehicle to Athinios port. Here, board the King Thiras, the modern and comfortable boat set for your cruise, and relax as you sail into Santorini’s caldera.

    Take in the island’s black cliffs and whitewashed towns as you cut through the waves to your first stop, Nea Kameni Island. Here, climb the path to see the still-active volcanic crater before cruising on to Palea Kameni, another caldera island.

    Drop anchor here, and if you wish, swim in the sulphur-rich hot springs that seep into the sea. Alternatively, just enjoy a paddle or admire the views from the boat.

    Next, sail to Thirasia, an island that was part of Santorini before the cataclysmic volcanic eruption of 236 BC. Go ashore and enjoy two hours’ free time to swim from the beach, have lunch (own expense), or explore the clifftop town of Manolas, with its winding steps and traditional houses.

    Back aboard, cruise to Amoudi, situated below the clifftop town of Oia. Disembark and climb the steps to Oia to experience a spectacular Santorini sunset from the cliffsides.

    Your day trip then ends with a drop-off at the start point.

    Many folks have written how horrible this trip was for them. We had a great time. The guide was informative and full of good spirits. It was not crowded when we went... The volcano walk was fun... and I even swam a bit....how many times can you say you have swum in a volcano???

    Too many people! The boat was overcrowded and it was impossible to hear the tour guide. The volcano walk was miserable. Everyone wore flip flops, slipping and sliding. The stop on Tharaissa was a waste. 3 hours to eat in poor restaurants and swim on slimy pointed rocks.
