Santorini, Volcano to Sea | A Private Boat and Volcano Family Tour

  • Duration

    Half Day

  • Theme

  • Group Type

    • Private

    Santorini is famous worldwide for it’s unique landscape, the caldera, the perfect sunsets and, of course the volcano. Its eruption took place 3,600 years ago and was one of the largest and most violent volcanic eruptions in human history. In fact, it caused the collapse of the glorious Minoan civilization, as the lava ejection reached the South coast of Crete in Knossos, the center of Minoan community.

    So no wonder why the volcano is among the highlights of Santorini that you should not miss!

    How do I get to Santorini volcano?

    The best way to visit the Santorini volcano with kids is by chartering a private boat. We highly recommend this private experience since you can customize it and make it as kid-friendly as possible. This is important since the volcano area can be very hot during summer, therefore, your family might decide to stay a shorter time on the volcano and more time swimming.

    You will enjoy the 3 volcanic islands of Palia Kammeni, Nea Kammeni and Thirassia. You will swim and snorkel in amazing spots and enjoy the local flavors and delicacies offered on board.

    You can book either a 5-hour half-day or a 9-hour full-day experience. We can also design a private tailor-made itinerary just for your family!

    Families should know

    • The specific suggestion is for a family up to 6 pax
    • We do not suggest a long hiking in volcano, especially during the summer months. It can get very hot and tiring for kids of all ages
    • The meal can be fully customised to any dietary restrictions or allergies
    Address: Santorini island, Cyclades

    • Hello,

      I am travelling with my family of three including a 2yr old toddler in end Dec. I wonder if half day tour would be suitable? and if yes what would it cost etc, also what are the tour customization options?
      Looking forward to hear from you.

      • Hello Swpnika,
        Thank you for your message. I am afraid during December we do not offer any sailing trips or motor boat trips to the Volcanic islands, as the weather can get unpredictable. Maria Giannouli has already sent you some information via email about our programs, which can be fully customised to your family needs.
        All the best,
        On Behalf of the Kids Love Greece team

    • Hello, I will be traveling with my 15 year old son and my 12 year old son in mid-March. Are there any things to do or tours you would recommend?

      • Dear Jennifer,
        Thank you so much for your message. Yes, we do offer many fantastic tours in Santorini for teens! We will send you all of the ideas via email.
        Thank you!

    • I am interested in your private family tour. We are a family of my wife, 7 years old son, 5 years old son, and me.

      We are very interested in the hotspring, but in the most other tours, we seem to need to dive in the water and swim to the hot spring. Since our kids are small and can’t swim, I am looking for a tour with which we can sail close to the hot spring or land the islands to soak in the hot spring safely. Can we do it with your tour?

      We are also interested in the hiking on the volcano, white beach, red beach, and seafood restaurant at Thirasia island.

      I am looking forward to hearing from you.

      • Dear Hironao,
        Thank you for your message and your interest in our private sailing trip.

        All yachts and boats in Greece, including Santorini, cannot moor directly on the beach. They can moor in a marina or dingies must be used to go to the beaches, where the water is swallow.

        Regarding the Hot Springs, you will need to dive into the water and swim in the hot springs.

        If your kids do not know how to swim you must be with them all the time and must use life jackets.

        Regarding the seafood restaurant in Thirasia, there are a few … and there is a new one opening in the spring of 2022. The place will be accessible only by private boat. Is that what you are referring to?

        We will follow up by email.
        Thank you,
        Katerina on behalf of Kids Love Greece

    • We are coming in September. We will have 2 15 year old girls with us, and 2 adults. Could you please send picing and options for volcano tour with snorkeling
