ShoreTrips says...

Your boat is called Thalassa, which means "sea." It will take you on an unforgettable journey. Climb a volcano, soak in hot springs, or just kick back and take in the beautiful coastline.

Your memorable afternoon and evening begins right at the pier as you board our magnificanet sailboat and cruise to the small port of the Nea Kameni volcano, among the green, sulfurous waters. From there, if you're feeling adventurous, your guide will take you up to the crater's rim, where you can stand on the hot, rocky ground and marvel at the incredible scenery.

Next, we'll sail to the hot springs, where you can soak in lukewarm waters renowned for their healing powers. The boat cannot dock here, so it will anchor in about 30 meters of water. You can choose to swim to the springs or stay on board and relax.

After these two stops, we'll sail to Thirassia, the second largest island of the volcanic Caldera complex, which was separated from the main mass of Santorini island when the volcano erupted in 1500 BC. You'll also get a wonderful view of the settlement of Oia and the picturesque ports of Ammoudi and Armeni, located on the northern tip of the island.

Meanwhile, the captain and his crew will prepare a meal comprised of traditional Greek hor d'oeuvres and Santorinian wine. You will be served drinks and appetizers, including wine, Greek salad, Tzatski and Aubergine salad, stuffed vine leaves, Cheese pie, meatballs, chicken skewers, oven roasted potatoes and rice.

As we sail back towards Oia, we'll listen to live saxophone music while we watch the sun slowly slip below the horizon.
