Visit the surrounding islands of Santorini aboard a beautiful morning boat cruise. You'll head to Nea Kameni to see a volcanic crater, swim in the warm waters of the lava island of Palea Kameni, and enjoy some free time to explore Thirasia, which was once considered part of Santorini. Your final stop of the day is the beautiful village of Oia, where you can enjoy stunning views of the surrounding area from the castle.

What to expect?


Stop At: Santorini Volcano, Santorini, Cyclades, South Aegean

  • The tour starts with a bus transfer from the pick-up point to the port of Athinios and continues with the King Thiras boat to the lava island of Nea Kameni. King Thiras will make a stop to give us the opportunity to ascend the soil path and approach the crater of the still active volcano.

  • After seeing the crater, we will walk back down the path and get on the King Thiras boat. We’ll sail to the second lava island of Palea Kameni and reach the hot springs. The boat makes a stop approximately 50 meters from the opening so you can dive in the green waters of the hot springs or relax and enjoy the view.

  • The tour continues to Thirasia Island which was part of Santorini before the big explosion of the volcano. We will stay in Thirasia for two hours having the chance to go swimming, have lunch next to the sea or explore the village of Manolas with its winding steps and traditional houses.

  • Sailing across Oia, on the way back to Athinios port, you may take wonderful pictures of the cliffs and the breathtaking scenery. At the port of Athinios, the bus will be waiting to take you back to the place where you started the excursion.
