Santorini Caldera Sailing Tour with BBQ Lunch and Drinks

Select Date and Travellers

Select tour language
Experience the beauty of Santorini and its volcanic caldera on this small group sailing tour. Cruise by some of the island’s best-known landmarks before venturing into the turquoise waters of the caldera. Enjoy a soothing dip in the island’s hot springs, and slip on your flippers for a snorkeling session. Finish up the excursion with a seafood and barbecue feast, washed down with local wine. When you book, choose between a Day Tour or a Sunset Tour.
  • Get up close to Santorini’s volcanic caldera on a sailing cruise
  • Swim and snorkel off the island's most famous beaches
  • Soak in natural volcanic hot springs inside the dormant crater
  • Includes a Greek barbecue meal with wine and beer served onboard
What to Expect
Take your pick from a day trip or afternoon sunset tour, and enjoy a convenient transfer from your hotel to the Vlychada marina. Settle in to a comfortable Greek sailboat as you cruise by coastal landmarks like the Old Venetian Lighthouse and Indian Head Mountain. At the distinctive White Beach or Red Beach, splash into the clear Aegean for a swim or snorkel. Then, get unbeatable caldera views as you sail right inside Santorini’s dormant, sunken crater. Soak in natural volcanic hot springs here before indulging in a fresh Greek barbecue meal prepared onboard and accompanied by Greek wine, beer, and other beverages. Enjoy more swimming and snorkeling on the day tour, or finish with a colorful sunset from the water before drop-off back at your hotel.

Responded 19 Oct 2019
Thank you for your excellent review and wonderful comments! We appreciate your detailed review. We're very happy to hear you loved your experience with us. Concerning your notes about the itinerary, we do not disembark on the beaches for safety reasons and keeping the tours on track. We focus on sailing! The hot springs are truly warmish and we avoid Oia since it causes delays and is over-crowded. We're glad you enjoyed your tour! All the best until next time!

Definitely enjoyed our trip on Horizon but it's sold as having a steak BBQ - didn't see a bit of beef anywhere, nor a BBQ and the meat we did get (chicken and pork) were cheap cuts and fatty. Salads were good, and wine and drinks flowing. But overpriced for what we got.
