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.
