You will travel by tender boat directly from your ship to Erinia Cove, on the volcanic island of Nea Kameni. You will step out onto the Daphni lava flow, the oldest lava on the island. The path to the top of the dome is over volcanic sand, and lava fragments. You will observe large fragments of lava that were ejected in a molten state and cooled very rapidly as they traveled through the air. Upon reaching the summit of the crater, you will have some time to relax and enjoy the view of the island of Santorini and the amazing cliff of the caldera. Following the same route in reverse, you will return to your boat and sail to the thermal springs of Palea Kameni. The boat will stop in the deep green sulfur springs and you'll have a chance to swim in the mineral rich, warm waters (max 35 degrees C) of the Hot Springs. On the return boat trip, you will be dropped off at the small boat harbor of Fira where you can use your round trip cable car tickets that are included in this excursion. Return to your ship via local tender boat. Note: some cruise lines cover the costs of tender boats for guests, while others collect on the spot.
