Make a special Tour on this Motor Boat and get to explore the famous Volcano of Santorini

Departing from the picturesque Ammoudi port, below Oia village, this private boat tour offers a unique experience, visiting the most prominent sight of Santorini, the impressive Volcano!

You can choose between the 3-hour and 4-hour tour options, performed either during the morning or the afternoon, and spend some enjoyable hours with your friends at the sea! During all the cruises, you will get the chance to admire Santorini’s huge Caldera Cliffs while sailing to Nea Kameni’s jetty. Then, get ready to explore the Volcano’s ridge by hiking for 1,5 hours escorted by the boat’s crew. Feel the imposing Volcanic atmosphere and admire its wild beauty before setting sail to Palaia Kammeni, where the famous Hot Springs are located. Benefit from a therapeutic mud bath in the full of sulfur waters and gaze at the extraordinary natural beauty all around you. The 4-hour cruise includes an additional stop, at the beautiful island of Therasia, where you can enjoy snorkeling in the clear crystal waters or take some spectacular photos of the captivating scenery.

Both cruises finish with a visit to Agios Nikolaos Islet. Located below Oia, this small island is the best spot to take a dive and test your limits! If you choose a sunset tour option, you will have the chance to witness the magnificent sunset of Santorini on board, and adore its beautiful colors at the best spot, below Oia, before returning to Ammoudi port. 

Bring your best mood and get ready for a unique experience!

Great private 3 hour boat tour

Our guide, Dimitris and the Captain Petros were awesome!, Drinks are provided during the tour. We can bring snacks on our own if wanted. We are dropped off at the volcano for an hour and a half to walk the volcano and craters. Please be in comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking up and down the hill but worth taking the walk. Then we go to the hot springs area. We are provided with life jackets and can enjoy the hot spring swim if we like. After that, we hop back on and tour a few islands of our choice and return back. Dimitris was super nice to let me pick an Indian songs playlist during our boat ride:-). If you are a group of 6-8 and would like a private time, worth taking this tour. This is not a sunset tour so we will be dropped off by 7:30pm or so and the sunset was at 8:30pm. We went in early June. There are plenty of other sunset tour choices if needed by other tour companies. Overall, wonderful experience!
