Experience the Greeks’ Signature Way of Sailing on the Caldera Traditional Cruise

Want to make the most of your Greek holiday experience? Experiencing the Caldera traditional cruise is a must!

This one-of-a-kind Mediterranean experience will begin when we pick you up from your hotel in Santorini at the agreed-upon time. A friendly, professional driver and guide will wait for you in the hotel lobby, welcoming you to embark upon a sailing experience you will never forget!

From your hotel, we will head straight to the Ammoudi Port. You will get a chance to explore the island’s coastline and witness the breathtaking beauty of the Caldera. You can also swim in the therapeutic waters of Hot Springs and have the time of your life at Therasia Island.

Towards the end of the cruise, we will serve a delicious Greek meal on board. We have chicken fillet, tzatziki, beans, stuffed vine leaves, salad, and fruits on the menu. Special dietary meals are also available upon request. You can also chill on the deck and enjoy local white wine and your favorite soft drinks with your loved ones.

Apart from the complimentary transportation service from and to the hotel, you will receive snorkeling gear and maps of Santorini. Our experienced captain will accompany you on the cruise, sharing interesting information about the island.

You can choose between the following two cruise options, depending on your specific needs, requirements, and preferences.

Day Cruise

The day cruise starts at 10.30. We will begin sailing from Vlychada Port towards the Red beach and White beach. You can walk by the shore with your partner or swim with your friends before we go on to explore the 19th-century lighthouse.

The next spot will be Hot Springs. The vibrant essence of the volcanic sea will awaken your soul, leaving you enchanted. The catamaran will then continue sailing towards Therasia Island, where you can swim and capture some fantastic photos of the natural landscape. A hearty meal will be served on board before the cruise leaves for the old port of Ammoudi. The fun-filled tour will end at 15:30.

Sunset Cruise

The sunset cruise starts from Ammoudi Bay at 15.30. The catamaran will sail towards Therasia Island and Palea Kameni. A soul-awakening experience awaits you at the volcano and Hot Springs. Enjoying the sun and the sea simultaneously, you will be left mesmerized by the unique beauty of the volcanic area.

The catamaran will then head south, crossing the ancient lighthouse, the famous Indian rock, the Red beach and White beach. Before entering the Vlychada Port, you will witness one of the most beautiful sunsets of your life. The cruise will end after you enjoy delectable Greek dishes on board.

Wonderful cruise

We had a wonderful time on this cruise, with lots of places to see and explore, the food was excellent and plentiful and the sunset was absolutely breathtaking. We particularly liked that there were up to 10 people on the cruise, therefore the ship wasn't crowded. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel very efficiently with no delays. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Overall, the sites were beautiful and the food prepared was GREAT! However, the boat that was advertised was not the boat we rode. It was much smaller and not much space to walk around. Our guide was very nice but I'm not quite sure I would do this again.

Wonderful way to see the sights of Santorini

We had a lovely day out celebrating our anniversary. We loved it that there were a small number of fellow passengers (with whom we had a great time.) The crew is super attentive and friendly, without being intrusive into your day. The food was tasty, the only thing was there could have been more of it. There were only eight passengers, and really everyone only had one small portion.
