Full description

Marvel at Santorini's natural beauty on a cruise around the island in a traditional wooden boat. Stop to swim, snorkel, and visit the hot springs. Relish an included Greek lunch or dinner with local white wine. Choose the sunset option to admire Santorini's famous sunset too.

Start your tour with a convenient pickup service from your hotel on Santorini. Meet your driver-guide, then get transferred to the port in an air-conditioned van or minivan.

Upon arrival at the port in Vlychada, hop aboard the wooden boat and enjoy a welcome drink. Sail close to the Red and White Beach before making your first stop ashore by the Black Mountain for a swim. Put your goggles on and experience the crystal-clear water.

Next, continue past the Venetian Akrotiri Lighthouse, entering the majestic caldera of Santorini. Hear about the island from your guide, and fix your eyes on the spectacular volcanic area of colorful cliffs. Head toward the hot springs, and let the energy of the volcano fill you up as you swim in the geothermal waters once there. The next stop is Thirassia island, a fishermen’s island ideal for swimming and snorkeling.

After, restore your energy levels with a menu featuring chicken fillet, traditional Greek dips, beans, stuffed vine leaves, Greek salad, and fruits. End the cruise in the old harbor of Ammoudi, though there might be some spare time for a pit stop at Agios Nikolaus before disembarkation too.

The sunset option visits the same places but in reverse order, beginning in Ammoudi and ending in Vlychada. On the sunset cruise, enjoy your meal in the hidden coves of the Black Mountain before marveling at Santorini's magical sunset.

This boat tour was great. It’s perfect if you want less people and less of a party boat and more of a calm, beautiful experience. The food was fantastic and plentiful, the captain and guides were great! We were on the sunset cruise and it was absolutely beautiful. The only thing I wish we had done differently was to swim a little bit longer at our first stop. As the evening came on it got colder and we were less interested in swimming. Wish we’d done more of it at the beginning.

The tour could not have been better! Our captain and crew were kind and informative. We saw incredible beaches and learned some of the main features of the island. The smaller sized tour group was also very pleasant and we loved getting to know the other people on the tour. The food was lovely and featured many Greek specialties. The sunset was also breathtaking! The ride to and from the villa was also incredibly convenient and the driver was right on time. We will recommend this tour to several family members!

They picked us up very punctually at the hotel, we were a small group of people, exactly what we were looking for, the crew was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and varied. We drink a rich wine from the region. There was time to swim in various spots. And the music very pleasant at the moment.
