About Bella Aurora & Thalassa
Come! 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.

Great value and great experience! Crew worked very hard from beginning to end to keep everybody happy, and safe. The sailboat was beautiful. Sofia, the guide, was informative and fun and fostered a great ambience. The food was delicious, freshly grilled chicken skewers and many other side dishes. We enjoyed the walk up to the volcano and the historical references. The sulfur Springs was a refreshing swim, do not expect it to be warm. There was some dancing, great music and a beautiful sunset! Unlimited wine with your dinner. You do pay for any other refreshments prior to that including water (€1),at a very fair price… no negatives about this trip at all, don’t hesitate to book it!
