Private Caldera Cruises

Our Santorini sailing boat “Bella Aurora” runs private sailing Santorini cruises within the caldera and its capacity is up to 30 passengers. You can choose between a morning and a sunset sailing Santorini cruise.

Boarding of our Santorini sailing boat can take place at the port of your choice, the main port of Santorini “Athinios” or the Old Port of Fira.

From there we sail around the volcanic islands of Nea Kameni and Palea Kameni from where most of the volcanic layers are visible on the impressive steep inner walls of the Santorini caldera.
We head for the “Hot Springs” and their thermal sulfurous waters, where you can let yourself indulge in the natural-warm and soothing sea.

During the remainder of our voyage, our Santorini sailing boat docks close to Thirassia, the second largest of the complex of islands forming the Santorini caldera, giving you the opportunity to escape into its crystal clear and refreshing blue waters. For the “daring” passengers on board of our Santorini sailing boat we provide snorkeling equipment.

While you’re enjoying the refreshing waters the captain and his crew prepare a delicious BBQ on board, served along with Santorini white wine.

Next we depart for the northern tip of Santorini and the town of Oia with its two small fisherman ports Ammoudi and Armeni. From our Santorini sailing boat we have a unique vantage point for viewing and photographing the lovely traditional settlement of Oia. Here you can relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. At this point we set sails into the beautiful sunset (in case of a Santorini sunset cruise) and head back to the port of your choice (Fira/Athinios).
