Meeting info If you select the option with the transfer, there are pre-defined pick-up/drop-off locations, at convenient central spots in most villages. After the booking, you will be advised of a pick-up location that is closest to your hotel or most convenient for you!

The excursion starts either from the main port of Santorini, Athinios, or 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, or you have to descend 587 steps on foot.
Important note: You should pay 6€ more per way for the cable car ticket.

Gialos, the Old Port, lies below Fira, nestled at the foot of a rocky cliff. You will be surprised by the steep slopes of the Caldera and, finally, 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 sailing for 20 minutes, we will reach Nea Kammeni’s jetty. Should you be interested to be guided at the volcano, you have to pay 5 euro per person as an entrance fee. Then, you will walk to the volcano’s ridge with your guide who is going to explain to you everything about the history and the geology of the volcano. You will stay at the volcanic island for 1.5 hour and, after that, you will embark again for the next stop.

Hot Springs

Our next stop will be the island of Palaia Kammeni, 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 30 minutes at a distance of 30 meters from the shallow waters of Agios Nicholaos Beach. The waters 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, it is essential to swim extremely well.

Dinner on Board

Sailing above the underwater craters from Palaia Kammeni to Therasia 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 delicious buffet while capturing amazing photos of the Aegean Sea.

  • Chicken fillet with vegetables and mustard sauce
  • Meatballs (beef, chicken), in tomato sauce
  • Rice
  • Greek salad
  • Boiled vegetables
  • Tzatziki sauce (cucumber, yogurt, garlic)
  • Bread
  • Seasonal fruit
  • Halva
  • Local wine

Sunset on Board

The end of the excursion comes at sunset time. Aphrodite sets sail and the sun dives into 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 turn into gold colors. Your trip with Aphrodite in this sanctuary of romance is going to be in your memories and your hearts forever!
