We took a full day sunset cruise to the volcano, hot springs, swimming in amazing blue waters and watching the sunset near Oia under the sales. It was unforgettable experience, the ship was just the right size and not crowded, the crew and tour guide accommodating, experienced, knowledgeable and funny. The view, the sea and sunset are a must to... More

Probably one of the better day trips I have ever done. It was well organised, and included transfers, a swim in the thermal water (near the volcano), and a fair bit of time exploring/trekking. Great views and lots of info from our guide. Boat was very comfortable too - able to buy water, beers, soft drinks on board.

Had a great time during this tour. Bought it through Get Your Guide. It seems you can get it cheaper if you buy it locally. Be prepared by wearing comfortable shoes and water in order to hike the volcano. Also if you're planning on swimming to the hot springs/mud be mindful your bathing suit might get stained, recommend you to... More

Instead of doing the Volcano then the hot springs, they took us to the hot springs first, which were not at all hot. Also, it was very deep and there was no volcanic mud to be had?? which is what was promised?? The volcano trek was very interesting and our guide was very informative.

Although the boat trip was great, the stop off at volcanic springs was a total waste of time. Also what ever you do, do not walk/climb up to the top of the volcano it was a total waste of time and my wife was ver exhausted. if you are expecting to see or smell any life while up the top... More

So the boat was a little crowded, the lunch stop was unfortunate, and the hot springs were a bust unless you wanted to be covered in orange stains all day...BUT I loved the volcano even though it was a hike! The walk up the steps to Oia was also difficult with my knee injury, but I felt better doing that... More

We took the sunset cruise with dinner and unlimited drinks. A coach picked us up from the hotel, so that was very convenient. Then took us to the port. There were 15 in the boat which was just right for the size. We were greeted with very warm welcome from the crew. They took us around the the red and... More
