After your first stop, you will sail around the volcano, the world’s famous Caldera of Santorini. The crater still seems to be active with hot fumes being released in many points.
Your camera will become your most valuable piece of equipment as you sail past Aspronisi, Ancient light house, Akrotiri and Indian Rock! Don’t miss out on capturing unique family moments while enjoying the delights of the Caldera, including the white Cycladic houses hanging over the cliffs of Santorini Island. You can gaze at the various natural caves and the beautiful small church of St. Nicolas, patron saint of sailors.

After all this great time, you will sail back to the port your tour started, where the minibuses of Sunset Oia will be waiting for you so as to drive you back to your hotel.
