Santorini Sailing Tour
Volcano-Hot Springs-Thirasia Sailing Tour. Start From Oia.
This tour is the most popular in Santorini. You have the opportunity to discover the Nea Kameni island (the volcano), the famous Hot Springs and the picturesque island of Thirasia.
The total duration of our trip is about 5 hours and 30 minutes. We set sail from the two small ports of Oia, Ammoudi at 10:15 and Armeni at 10:30, and we will be back at about 15:45. We provide also a free transportation from your hotel/apartment or room in Oia to the Ammoudi port and at the end of the excursion from the Ammoudi port to your hotel/apartment/room. If your hotel is located in Imerovigli, Fira, Firostefani, Kamari etc. we can meet you at the central bus station of Oia or directly at Ammoudi port.
Our spacious traditional boat is ideal for daily excursions and it is equipped with W.C, shade and a bar. After our embarkation in Ammoudi & Armeni port, our boat is heading for our first stop in Nea Kameni (volcano). There we will stop for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Our guided tour (speaks fluently Greek, English and French) will show you the craters of the Volcano and will inform you about the history of one of the most important volcanoes of the whole world. If you are lucky and there is no wind at all, you can see steam coming out of the craters. Yes, it’s an active volcano.
Our second stop is the Palaia Kameni island and the famous Hot Springs. The temperature of the water is 5 Celsius degrees /41 Fahrenheit degrees warmer than the rest sea of Santorini. Also the sea water is mixed with sulphur. That gives a gold color to the waters and a very a nice mud bath to your body. Our last stop is the picturesque island of Thirasia. Thirasia was an extension of Oia thousands years ago.
Nowadays retains a unique character away from the growing life of the rest Santorini. There you can feast fresh fish, traditional mezedes (snacks) and local wine or you can take a donkey and visit the traditional village of Manolas.
