Our cruise starts from Vlychada port and the first stop is at the magnificent volcanic Red Beach where you can swim in crystal clear waters, try snorkeling and admire a jaw-dropping landscape.

Then, as we sail towards the volcano, you have the chance to set eyes on White Beach, which is another spectacular scenery of the island, the admirable lighthouse of Akrotiri and a distinctive rock formation on the caldera cliffs, called The Indian Rock.

At the volcano you will have a unique experience as you can swim in its hot springs that own healing waters and explore the volcanic islets of Palaia Kammeni and Nea Kammeni where the natural colors will amaze you.

Next we sail around the volcano and anchor there in order to take in the splendid view and enjoy a delicious Seafood BBQ lunch or dinner, specially prepared and served from the crew. In the meantime, you can swim or go snorkeling (snorkeling equipment is available on board) in the volcano’s waters.

Afterwards, we sail along the uninhabited Aspronisi Island, opposite of Santorini, and we reach Mesa Pigadia Beach, a lovely peaceful cove, for swimming, snorkeling or just sunbathing on deck.

Finally, we sail back to Vlychada marine. Departure time and arrival time depend on whether you choose the morning or the sunset cruise. If you choose the sunset tour, you will have the opportunity to experience one of the most sought after sunsets in the world while on board.

Absolutely amazing! Couldn’t fault the experience at all!

Wonderful experience

After a bit of a mix up with our booking Santorini view came up trumps. As for the Barca Sailing experience just WOW. We were collected from our Hotel by Andreous and taken straight to the harbour with lot’s interesting information about the island as we drove through. Once there we saw large crowds waiting to get on the other yachts. No problem Andreous took us straight to our yacht and straight on board we’re we met George our Skipper. And we set off straight away. There was a large number of other Yachts out on the water but George and Andreous would take us to a quiet undisturbed spot so we could swim in peace. The lunch these guys prepared for us was first class with lots of wine whenever you asked for it. Andreous was a fantastic tour guide explaining the history of the island as we passed through its waters. This is an experience We will definitely be doing again on our return next year. I couldn’t recommended Barca Sailing any higher. If you’re in Santorini they should be top of your to do List. Paul and Angela

Great few hours

Had a great time, food and scenery great. We did not stop at the hot springs which was disappointing but believe it was due to the amount of boats there. Heard that we weren’t stopping there from other passengers not the crew. Crew were very helpful and police. , Wonderful experience!
