After pickup at your transformation, get transferred to the port of Vlychada, where the cruise begins. Board the Riva yacht and experience its timeless beauty up close. Set off on your boat tour, and make your first stop near Red Beach for a refreshing swim.

Continue to the White Beach, Black Mountain, and Akrotiri Lighthouse at the southern end of the caldera. Soak up views of the unspoiled volcanic beaches where the spectacular colors will amaze you or just sunbathe on the deck.

Head toward the hot springs and feel the energy of the volcanoes and the spirit of Santorini. Upon arrival, discover the magic of geothermal energy swimming by taking a dip in the thermal springs of the volcanoes.

Your next stop is Thirassia Island, a fishermen’s island. There, enjoy a delicious meal in a traditional Greek tavern with an open choice among fish or meat or vegetarian menus with white local wine.

Wonderful afternoon and evening exploring Santorini on a magnificent boat, with an engaging crew. A definite change of pace from hiking up and down in the towns, with the ability to snorkel and swim, see the island from a different perspective, enjoy a yummy sea-side meal and top it off with a gorgeous sunset!

What a great experience! The captain and first mate were so helpful, friendly, informative, and accommodating. We were a family of four and they immediately made everyone comfortable, explained our day and provided insight into the places we saw and stopped at along the way. It was a great relaxing day capped off by a great dinner and a sunset! We highly recommend this tour!

Fabulous day in Santorini! This private boat trip was more than we ever expected- the Captain and Dyana made our time on the boat relaxing, they were great about explaining the areas we went to - towels, goggles, snorkels and snacks- they had them! Lunch that was included in the package was amazing!!!! Ghera at Thirasia Karfas Bay- The location, the restaurant staff and the food- 5 Stars! - I would think if Michelin could drive there they'd also give the food a high rating. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend this activity- DONT GO TO SANTORINI AND NOT DO THIS!
