Santorini by Schooner

One of the more interesting ways to cruise to Santorini is by schooner Bella Aurora, a replica of sailing boats used in the 18th century. The schooner visits structures on the site of Thira, a major city in ancient times, offering breathtaking views of the island. You also will visit the port of Nea Kammeni and the volcano, where the waters are warm and green. Don't forget your sturdy walking shoes, hat and sunscreen as you stand on the rugged rocky edge of the volcanic crater. Enjoy traditional Greek hors d'oevres with authentic Santorinian wine after swimming in the warm waters. The cruise then passes the volcanic island of Thirassia on the way back to Fira, the capital of Santorini.
