Come! Sail away with us on a memorable voyage.You will board our authentic Brigantine Thalassa at the picturesque old port of Fira.We will set sail for the small port of the volcano. When we arrive your guide will lead you up to the rim of the volcanic crater where smoke rises up and the stones are hot to the touch. Remember to bring good walking shoes and a hat to protect you from the sun.Leaving the volcano, our ship heads for the “hot springs”. There you can bathe in the warm waters (don’t forget your bathing suite and towel) . During the remainder of our voyage, we pass by Thirassia, where you have the chance to swim again in the blue crystal cleal waters while the captain and his crew prepare plenty of traditional Greek meze (appetizers) and you’ll have the chance to taste the renowned wine from Santorini. Next we come to the northern tip of Santorini and the town of Ia with its two small seaports Ammoudi and Armeni. From our sailing boat we have a unique vantage point for viewing the lovely traditional settlement of Ia. Here you can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery.Then we will set the sails and head back to Fira enjoying the wine and live saxophone music as the sun magically sets into the sea.

A couple whose wedding I photographed in Santorini threw a pre-wedding party on Bella Aurora & Thalassa the day before. It was amazing all around. Excellent service and amazing experience, top up with a firework at the end of the day!

I would highly recommend this tour. The crew was very friendly. Be sure to take good hiking shoes for the stop at the volcano, as it is quite long, high and rocky. The on board meal was far more than I expected. You have to...More

Take trainers for walking up the volcano, on board you can go barefoot but would suggest flip flops because of the heat, soles of feet may burn.
