Caldera's Boats

Our company has been organizing special guided tours for Santorini's visitors with traditional wooden boats for 47 years. The first tour was in 1968 with a small caique whose name was Saint Nikolaos. Captain Manolis was the person that started these small tours and he is one of the shareholders of our company. The first travel agency opened in 1947.

Our fleet today consists of 8 wooden boats with diesel engines and a highly experienced crew. We invite you to an extraordinary exploration of Santorini from a different perspective. Our travel agencies, one in Fira and one at the old port, are available for you every day. You can easily book online your private or group boat cruise and enjoy the unique opportunity to see the active volcano from up close, swim in the hot springs or make a romantic sunset cruise. The views of Caldera rising up to 450 meters above sea level dotted by picturesque settlements of white Cycladic houses are majestic. It is then that you will realize that no journey to Santorini can ever be complete without a leisurely boat ride.

A must do!

What a great experience! Was the best part of our journey to Santorini. Our guide Anna was awesome, she is really an encyclopaedia, giving us a lot of information about the place we visited. We were 2 families with four children from 4 to 11 years old and they were all done the hiking trail on volcano, bathing in the spring water and then reaching the top of Therasia Island! I really recommend!

Unique Experience

Enjoyed this tour very much. Our guide was great and we learned thousands of years of history from Santorini. The walk up the volcano was hot, so jumping off the boat was REFRESHING. , Our guide was awesome!
