The tour starts with the 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 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.



Duration: 1 hour

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 for swimming, have lunch next to the sea or explore the village of Manolas with its winding steps and traditional houses.

The day began with a pick up close to our hotel. It was a nice touch that the tour company picked us up closer to our hotel and dropped us off at the same place. We weren't expecting the boat to be so large and to have the crowds on the tour. The clientele seemed more interested in partying and smoking than seeing and experiencing the sites. The tour description indicated it was a morning cruise and we'd be back by 3 or 4. It was much longer than that and we didn't get back to port until 6 PM.
The positives of the trip were the guide, Constantine. He was well educated, articulate, multi lingual and when he took the tour to the volcano he waited before he started speaking. This is a big thing in Greece - we didn't have that great of luck with our other guides.
Another positive were the sites we visited - the volcano, hot springs and island of Thirissia.
The down side, besides the party atmosphere, were the time frames at each location.
Our experience to this point has been the desire for longer stays at each location but this tour took way too much time at the volcano (could have shortened by 30 minutes) and on Thirissia (they gave us 3 hours and we only needed half that or 2 hours max). On the way back to port they took us to see a few landmarks, which were nice but given the day was so long, we just wanted to get back to Santorini.
Lastly, the clientele on the boat detracted from the experience. This has nothing to do with the boat company, but we would have preferred a more family friendly crowd. A crowd that smoked less, partied less and who dressed more appropriately. If we were to do this cruise again, we'd look for a smaller boat - less people - and one geared more towards families and/or professional people.
