Experience Santorini’s scenery, hot springs, and beaches on a cruise with onboard dinner and glass of wine included.

Evening Santorini cruise including volcano and hot springs visit plus a sunset dinner
Enjoy free time to explore Nea Kameni volcano and relax in the hot springs (entry own expense)
Cruise to the rocky shores of Thirasia and watch the sunset over the island of Santorini
Savor two courses of Greek cuisine with a glass of wine while on board the boat
Pickup and drop-off from your Santorini hotel included
Depart your Santorini hotel by air-conditioned minivan, and travel to the jetty for your cruise. Meet the trained skipper and crew, and find a comfortable spot on the cruise boat. Then, sit back and admire Santorini’s caldera and sugar-cube, clifftop houses as your vessel pulls away from the dock.
Relax, enjoy the sea spray and take snaps of the unfolding views as your boat cuts through the waves of the Aegean Sea. While you cruise, enjoy the sodas, wine, ouzo (anise-infused liquor), and coffee available for purchase from the onboard bar. Then drop anchor at the hot springs beside Nea Kameni, Santorini’s ancient volcano. Step ashore, and snap photos of the dark volcanic cliffs contrasted against the turquoise of the sea. As an option, immerse yourself in the invitingly warm pools, whose steaming waters are thought to have therapeutic benefits (admission at your own expense). Afterward, hop back on deck for a delicious dinner while moored near Thirasia, an island located off Santorini's northwestern coast. As the boat bobs in the water, sip an included glass of wine and watch the sunset over Thirasia's craggy coastline. The island, also home to the remains of ancient Thira, is sparsely populated, and offers a nice contrast to lively Santorini. As the sun sinks below the horizon in a blaze of orange, gold, and pink, you'll cruise back to port and finish your tour with a hotel drop-off.
We were expecting a catamaran, but got the Aphrodite Sunset Sail and it's crew....to which we got the best time of this day. This tour is worth the money, hiked Nea Kameni and our guide Dada shared the detailed history of the volcanic eruptions. Two swim stops, delicious dinner and upclose sunset complimented with great soft music. After sunset, we got a greek dance lesson from Dada, which was really fun. Recommend this tour, especially with the Aphrodite beautiful sail ship!
So much packed into a wonderfully relaxing yet fun afternoon sailing around Santorini. All of the crew were amazing however Dada was truly the standout. He made the whole experience informative & fun. Truly enjoyed the day.
The tour starts a bit earlier than expected but trust me its worth every min of it.. the trip includes 3 stops.. each one is great by itself .. last one being the stop for the sunset.. the crew is awesome they made us very comfortable and provided a lot of info.. (even taught us basic steps for Greek dance) .. the dinner provided was very tasty .. it was simple but boy it was so good.. i would highly recommend taking this tour if nothing else the sunset from the boat is just awesome..
We had an amazing time. We enjoyed hiking to the top of the volcano (definitely a workout). You definitely need either water shoes or tennis shoes. The views from the top were breathtaking.
Swimming was lots of fun. The food was delicious. Unfortunately, is not open bar so bring Euros. The sunset was beautiful. I loved Dadda (David). He was an excellent entertainer. This is a must do!!
The title of this tour is “Santorini Sunset Dinner Cruise including Nea Kameni Visit,” neither of these wonderfully sounding events ended up happening for us. We waited 1.5 hours at the pick up location, contacted our tour operator via WhatsApp and email, but to no avail.
The sad part is that the tour sounds really great, but we have left the island and unfortunately have no way of getting reimbursed because MTM, the company running this tour, will not respond to my emails, but they were more than happy to communicate with me prior to forgetting to pick us up.
I’m sure the tour is wonderful, granted they pick you up, so I would say to proceed with caution, maybe even try to get a tour operator on the phone the day prior to make sure everything is arranged, and get the details on where the cruise will be departing, so that you can get there on your own if you are also forgotten.
The cruise was good, crew is very helpful and the place is truly beautiful but the pick-up bus was 45min late leaving some people behind and it was pretty hot inside the bus as the aircon was far from ideal. Add that delay to some traffic and we started the cruise more than 1h late.
