Join the adventure of visiting the historical Volcano of Santorini with the unique Hot Springs near it, and sail like a pirate ready to "capture" unique images of the stunning Santorini Caldera!

Starting from either Athinios port or the Old Port, this cruise will be the most memorable experience of your visit to Santorini island! Board our authentic Brigantine "Thalassa" in the afternoon, and visit places of unparalleled beauty and historical significance! Let’s sail away together!

This unique experience will start by reaching the impressive volcano of Santorini! Our knowledgeable guide will lead you up to the top of the crater, giving you all the useful information about the creation of this impressive site, and welcoming you to feel the wild volcanic atmosphere all around! This hike takes up to 1,5 hours in steep terrain, so make sure that you wear a good pair of shoes, bring a hat for protection from the sun, as well as a bottle of water. Get ready to touch the hot stones and see the volcanic crater on the top of the rim, where smoke rises up! It is fascinating!

After leaving the Volcano, we will set sail for the famous Hot Springs! There, you can experience a different spa on the thermal, full of sulfur waters. Take a dive and feel the warm springs coming from beneath and benefit from the therapeutic effects of the water while setting eyes on the impressive volcanic environment around you. It’s a totally worth it experience! We will stay there for 30 minutes. Please note that in order to reach the church of Agios Nicholaos, it is important to swim extremely well.

Next, we will depart for the beautiful Therasia island, where you will have the chance to take a refreshing dive in the crystal clear waters, while the crew will be preparing a delicious traditional meal for you! Get ready to try the flavorsome Greek appetizers and dishes, accompanied by the famous Santorini white wine. (The wine is provided during dinner time. During the rest of the excursion, it can be purchased separately.)

Menu on board: Greek salad, tzatziki, aubergine salad, stuffed vine leaves, cheese pie, meatballs, chicken skewers, oven-roasted potatoes, and rice.

Last but not least, the famous sunset of Santorini! Set sail for the northern part of the island, near the fishermen’s ports of Ammoudi and Armeni, where you will have the chance to relax and watch the amazing sunset on board! The boat will stop at a nice spot, where you will have a great view of the sun diving into the sea, as well as the picturesque Oia village, which lies above. Get ready to capture the most amazing photos!

Important note: The cable car fee (6€ per person each way) and the Volcano fee (5€ per person) are not included in the price of the tour.

Feel the pirate atmosphere of this 18th-century brigantine replica and live an experience that will stay in your hearts forever!

Holiday highlight!

We had a great time and were really well looked after by the guide and crew. The ship is full of character, and the itinerary was full, but not rushed.
