Sunset Sailing Tour to Volcano and Hot Springs with Dinner

The excursion starts either from the main port of Santorini Athinios port, either from the picturesque old port of Santorini. This old port is only accessible by cable car which is the most common way as it takes only 3 minutes to go down, 587 steps on foot or for those who love the adventure, the local donkeys is the ideal choice to reach it. Important note : You should pay 6€ more per way either for the cable car ticket or to ride one of the donkeys.

Gialos, the Old Port, lies below Fira, nestled at the foot of a rocky cliff. You will be surprised with the steep slopes of the Caldera and in the end the tiny port will appear under these huge rocks and the cave houses that seem to dangle on the cliff. There the guides of your excursion will be waiting for you, to give you all the important information and to orientate you on the boat. For more information or clarifications, don’t hesitate to visit our travel agency which is located down at the port.

Volcano

Our first destination will be the famous volcano of Santorini! After 20 minutes sailing, we will reach Nea Kameni’s jetty. Should you are interested to be guided at the volcano, you should pay 2.5euro/ per person as an entrance fee. Then, you will walk to the volcano’s ridge with your guide and he is going to explain you everything about the history and the geology of the volcano. You will stay at the volcanic island for 1.5hr and in the end you will embark again to our boat for the next stop.

Hot Springs

Our next stop will be the island of Palea Kameni where the famous hot springs are located on the west side. A place that is really popular for its thermal waters. We will stop there for 30min at a distance of 30 meters from the shallow waters of Agios Nicholaos’ beach. The waters are mixed with mud that they are full of sulfur, iron and other metals coming from the volcano and they are very good for the skin, rheumatism, arthritis and other physical pains.

Important Note : In order to reach Agios Nicholaos’ beach is essential to swim extremely well.

Dinner on Board

Sailing above the underwater craters from Palia Kameni to Thirasia Island, the boat will anchor close to the island in order to enjoy your dinner. Our experienced staff will prepare everything for you so as to relax and enjoy our Greek tasteful buffet while capturing amazing photos of the Aegean sea.

  • pork rolls
  • chicken rolls
  • rise
  • baked potatoes
  • Greek salad
  • tzatziki sauce (cucumber, yogurt, garlic)
  • bread
  • seasonal fruit
  • free local wine during buffet!

Sunset on Board

The end of the excursion comes on sunset time. Aphrodite sets sails and the sun dives to the sea in the northernmost part of the island. Our boat will stop very close to Oia village where you will have the chance to watch the warm light of the setting sun under the violet sky before the night falls. This is the most unforgettable experience as the Caldera and the village of Oia will turn into gold colour. Your trip with Aphrodite in this sanctuary of romance is going to be in your memories and your hearts forever!

I enjoyed this tour as an opportunity to learn about the volcano that formed Santorini. The boat was nice, and the buffet was good. We saw a beautiful sunset from the boat. The tour provided an interpreter, which was helpful. I am taking away a star for the following reasons: 1. The tour was promoted as lasting 6 hours, but when you factor in transportation, it actually last about 8 hours. 2. This tour can be difficult to navigate if you don't have the ability to print your vouchers (you need 1 copy for each leg of your transportation to and from the tour + to get on the boat) We were told that the vouchers would be printed for us, but this didn't occur. As a result, we had difficulty joining the tour. This tour should consider also using vouchers sent via email

We are grateful that you took the time out to leave us this feedback! 1. This sunset sailing tour with dinner has 2 options. With transfer or without transfer. If you choose "with transfer", there are pre-defined pick-up/drop-off locations, chosen at convenient central spots in most villages where the bus passes and takes you to port. You can always choose "without transfer", so you'll be able to manage your own transportation and reduce a bit the transfer time. Of course, most tourists choose with the transfer as it is a less worry option for them. We organize everything for you! 2. That's true and we deeply apologize for that but we fixed it promptly and you joined the tour! Thank you for your honest feedback, we deeply appreciate your notes as they really help us improve. We look forward to serving you again!

Do it!

The best trip ever! Perfect combo of adventure and relaxation. But you need to get there pretty early. The line to ride the tram down can take up to three hour wait and the stairs can take 20-45 minutes depending on how fast you can do them. The marble in the steps can be slick so even if you are in good shape (like my 26yo self) it can slow you down a lot. My mom, age 60, and my husband, age 31 all had a great time!! H
