Full description
Depart from Vlichada Marine at 10:00. The yacht passes by Red Beach, where you will make a stop for swimming and/or snorkeling. Then, you'll drift along White Beach, spotting the big rock called The Indian (or Mavro Vouno). Passing by the Light House (in Akrotiri), you'll enter the Caldera and move towards the Volcano. You can swim at the hot springs, the volcano healing waters, and explore the volcanic beaches of Palea and Nea Kameni, which will amaze you with their spectacular black, red and white colors. You will then stop for a delicious BBQ lunch, prepared and served by the crew. Thereafter, you'll have time to swim in the volcano’s crystal clear blue waters, or just sunbathe on the deck. Afterwards, sail along Aspronisi Island where you can swim at Mesa Pigadia, snorkel, or just sunbathe on the deck. Finally, you will return to Vlichada Marine after a 5 hour cruise.

    It was incredibly nice to travel with the sailing ship in such a small group to the sea and to the caldera of Santorini. We passed Red Beach and White Beach, were able to swim in the open sea there, sailed on to the newest island in the caldera where we were surrounded by the high rocks. The water was clear blue to clear green at times, just lovely to swim in the waves. It was fascinating that our crew conjured up a delicious lunch in no time at all. And the captain explained to us during the trip how the beautiful, differently colored rock faces were formed, showed us the St. Nicholas Church on the beach and the oldest lighthouse that waved to us from the summit. Some went snorkeling. We had a lot of fun sailing together in the sun and got along really well right away.

    Fabulous! We really enjoyed the crew, the swim stops and the food. We got to drive the boat and loved sailing. They made us feel like family. I loved the food and the way they explained the different geological formations. We enjoyed the warm water at the hot springs. It was by far, one of the best tours we've been on. Also, it was semi private which we prefer.
