Santorini Crater & Lagoon Sunset Dinner Sail

Enjoy the best of Santorini as you sail by the rim of the volcanic crater and savor a traditional BBQ dinner as the sun melts into the Aegean Sea. Starting at the port of Vlychada, you'll board the nearly 100-foot (28-m) long authentic Brigantine wooden boat and start your adventure.

As you sail into Santorini's caldera, your guide will share the island's geologic history. You'll learn how to identify the visible volcanic layers along the crater's steep inner walls and understand the significance of past eruptions. Then, take your first break at a natural hot spring, where thermal sulfurous water soothes your body as you soak in the sea.

Continue along the coast and dock near Thirassia, the second-largest island within the caldera. Enjoy swimming in the sea while your crew prepares a delicious and traditional Greek BBQ buffet. Try local Santorini wines that grow in unique volcanic soil as you dine and enjoy the sea views.

The cruise's final stop is on the northern tip of Santorini, near the charming village of Oia. Explore the town's two ports, Ammoudi and Armeni, and capture the traditional harbors from a unique vantage point onboard the boat. Then, as you head back, enjoy listening to live music and watch the sunset over the Aegean Sea.
