Board the authentic 28m long Brigantine “Thalassa” in the afternoon either at the Port of Athinios or at the picturesque old port of Fira and depart to the small port of Nea Kameni volcano for a magical sunset cruise. Upon arrival at the volcano our guide leads you up to explore the rim of the volcanic crater from where most of the volcanic layers are visible on the impressive steep inner walls of the caldera.
*1,5 hours stop
Leaving the volcano, our sailing boat heads for the “Hot Springs” and their thermal sulfurous waters, where you can let yourself indulge in the natural-warm and soothing sea.
*0,5 hour stop
During the remainder of our voyage, our sailing boat docks close to Thirassia, the second largest of the complex of islands forming the caldera, giving you the opportunity to escape into its crystal clear and refreshing blue waters. In the meantime the crew prepares a delicious traditional Greek BBQ buffet and you’ll enjoy the renowned white local wine.
Next we depart for the northern tip of Santorini and the town of Oia with its two small fisherman ports Ammoudi and Armeni. From our sailing boat we have a unique vantage point for viewing and photographing the lovely traditional settlement of Oia. Here you can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. At this point we set sails and head back to Fira enjoying live saxophone music as the sun magically sets into the sea.
