What You Can Expect

Santorini Sunset Dinner Cruise Including Nea Kameni Visit and Wine Tasting

Enjoy a Greek dinner as the sun sets over Santorini!

Start your experience with a hotel pickup from your Santorini hotel. Then, board your sightseeing boat at the Athinios port, settle in to your comfortable seat on deck, and cruise around the island to a winery near the foothills of Santorini’s famous volcano: Nea Kameni.

Step onto dry land and head inside Santo Winery, a site that boasts views as beautiful as its wine. Wander with your guide along the terraces, admiring the waves dancing around the shoreline, and sample three different varietals of wine that are made on the premises. Samples change each tasting, but typically a glass of red, white and vinsanto (syrupy-sweet dessert wine) are all served.

Cruise to the foot of Nea Kameni and enjoy roughly 1.5 hours of free time for a stroll around the volcanic landscape. After paying your entrance fee to the site, explore at your leisure. Have your camera ready to capture photos of the dark volcanic cliffs cutting a contrast against the blue waves of the Aegean Sea, and look out for pieces of magma as you walk around.

Meet back up with your guide at a prearranged time, and walk to the volcano’s hot springs (admission fee at your own expense) for a relaxing and reviving bath. The naturally formed pools were created from volcanic activity and are said to have medicinal powers against skin and bone disease.

Feeling refreshed and relaxed, return to your boat and finish your experience with the highlight of your evening: dinner as the sun goes down. Cruise over the sea to Thirasia, the large island adrift from Santorini’s northwestern coast. Forming part of the remains of ancient Thira, the island is sparsely populated and known for its stunning rocky coastline. Moor up next to the rocks and savor your dinner with a glass of wine and water.

After watching the sun set over the island of Santorini, cruise back to the start point and finish your evening experience with a hotel drop-off.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Cruise was excellent but van be booked directly from old port. The communication about pick up location was poor. I was told opposite the hospital and not knowing the area, the local bus station is opposite the hospital, we ended up getting on the wrong bus , after being directed by a person on duty at the bus depot and then the driver saying yes yes this was the right bus, finally being dropped off outside town when a conductor came around to sell us a ticket. When I rang up I was told no way I could make the tour that dayand had to join the next day. (I was thankful I hadn't missed out altogether) . Though my dismay to find out the next day that the bus takes you to new port to meet the boat, which then travels to old port to pick up more passengers. I could have easily made my way to old port the previous day. Once on the boat the cruise, the walk to the volcano site, though hot and long , I was prepared for that, the swim at the hot springs, the wonderful beautiful meal and wine ( no wine tasty g) one wine which was fine, and beautiful sunset with music exceptional friendly staff who speak most languages, once on the boat a brilliant cruise 100%brilliant. We did however choose to hop off at old port on the way back and get the donkey ride up to Fira, a unique experience in itself, and gave the bus a miss.
