Description - What to expect

Hop aboard the luxury, high-speed Champion Jet 2 catamaran at Heraklion port and cruise to Santorini in just 2.5 hours. Upon arrival at the port of Athinios, take a tour of the island by air-conditioned bus. Listen to informative commentary from your guide (available in English, German, French, Italian, Polish, and Russian) about the history of one of the most idyllic islands in Greece.

Travel through the beautiful countryside en route to the village of Oia at the northernmost tip of Santorini. Built on the edge of a volcanic caldera, the village offers beautiful views of the blue and white houses lined along the hillside.

Continue to Fira and get plenty of free time to explore the island's capital. Walk down the picturesque alleys and take in the views of the architecture typical to these Cycladic islands. Window-shop or enjoy a drink at a bar with stunning views of the volcano and its caldera cliffs.

Then, get the option to stay in the capital or go for a 2-hour swim off the black sand beach of Perissa or Perivolos. Alternatively, travel by boat to the caldera (subject to availability) for views of the volcano up close. Depart for Crete at 17:45 and journey back to the Port of Heraklion, where full-day boat trip services end.
