Sunset Caldera Sailing Cruise
From US$ 145.00
Watch the sun sink into the Aegean Sea on a 5-hour sailing cruise from Vlychada Marina to the Santorini caldera. Drop anchor off picture-perfect Red Beach to swim and snorkel in the clear water, and enjoy drinks on deck as you spot rock formations and the Akrotiri lighthouse. At the volcanic caldera, swim in natural hot springs and explore brilliant beaches, then enjoy a fresh BBQ dinner by the shore. Make a final swimming stop at Mesa Pigadia beach before returning to shore.
What to Expect
Departure from Vlychada Marine. We sail through Red Beach, where we make a stop for swimming and/or snorkeling. Then, we sail along White beach and spot the big rock called The Indian (or Mavro Vouno). Passing by Light House (in Akrotiri), we move towards the Volcano. We swim at the Hot Springs, at the Volcano healing hot waters and explore the volcanic beaches and areas of Palea and Nea Kameni, which will amaze you because of their spectacular black, red and white colours. Then, we move to have a view of the other side of the volcano, where while anchored, we enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch or dinner, prepared and served by the crew. Meanwhile, you can swim in the Volcano’s crystal clear blue waters. Afterwards, we sail along Aspronisi island and arrive at Mesa Pigadia beach for swimming, snorkeling or just sunbathing on the deck. Finally, we return to Vlychada Marine.                                   
Included:Transfer from/to hotel, seafood BBQ lunch on board, white local wine, Greek beer, soft drinks, use of snorkeling equipment.

Captain, Crew and the Sail was Excellent but this is not a Private cruise

We were expecting this to be a private cruise for just the 2 of us, but we found 8 other people onboard so it was definitely crowded and since none of us spoke the same languages it was less than what we expected.

Not impressed

Disappointed in this cruise, skipper was not engaged, no safety briefing or offer for life jackets, poor selection of food and insufficient for the 11 guests on board.
