Full description

See Santorini's volcanic islands on a yacht tour from Athinios port. Walk up to Nea Kameni's active volcano, explore Thiarassia Island's beaches and villages, and swim in the healing water of Palea Kameni's hot springs.

Begin your day with a hotel pickup and transfer to Athinios Port. Board your yacht and set sail for the lava island Nea Kameni. After disembarking, follow a dirt path to the crater of the still-active volcano.

Then, return to the boat to sail to Palea Kameni Island. Dive off the boat into the green sulfur waters of the hot springs, wet your feet, or just enjoy the view.

Next, cruise to Thirassia Island, which was once part of the island of Santorini before the volcano's explosion. Spend 2 hours exploring on your own. Go for a swim, hang out on the beach, have lunch next to the sea, or explore the village of Manolas with its winding steps and traditional houses. On the way back to Athinios port, stop to take picture-perfect photos of the cliffs and breathtaking scenery at Oia. Once you arrive at the port, the bus will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

This boat trip was our favourite day in Santorini. The tour is shared with others, but the bus pick up was efficient, we loved our tour guide (Vaso) and all the information she shared during the volcano hike, and the hot spring swim off the coast of Nea Kameni was fun. We had lunch at the water edge of Thirasia - no energy to walk to the top into the village ;0) and the slow sail past Oia on the way back to the port was very relaxing. The cafe / bar onboard was serving drinks, coffee and snacks. Highly recommend the experience overall.

You get what you ordered. Interesting hiking in the volcanic Island of nea kameni. swimming in the „hot springs“ was a Little Bit disappointing because it was in the Open sea and Not in a hot tub like i knew it from indonesia. Last Point was Visiting the small and cute Harbour of thirasia

The trip was nice. As always when there are so many people together there is a certain dynamic you might like or not. You have to decide upfront when booking. The guide was very friendly. The boat trip was well organized. Getting to and from the boat was a bit confusing. But inevitable as people from all corners of the island need to be brought to Fira and then in big buses to the ferry terminal. We were unlucky with our morning driver. He was late and not friendly. Also he decided to listen to his favorite music full blast.
