Santorini’s volcano is one of the few active volcanoes in Greek and European territory. The islands that make up Santorini have emerged as a result of intense volcanic activity. Twelve major eruptions have occurred approximately every 20,000 years. Each violent eruption caused the central part of the volcano to collapse and form a large crater. However, the volcano has managed to recreate itself many times over. Fira is the picturesque capital of the island, located at an altitude of 260 m above sea level and on the upper edge of the Caldera. It offers breathtaking views of the Aegean Sea and the island of Nea Kameni. Along the caldera border, you will come across the famous villages of Oia. The whole village looks like a work of art as the houses are carved into the lava rocks. We recommend that you see this work of art up close. Santorini is the ideal place for your dream vacation. You will be greeted by unique beauties during your Santorini sailing yacht charter cruise.

Santorini is considered the most sought after place for a romantic getaway in Greece.

For anyone who has seen at least one photo of the island’s famous Caldera and kissed each other under Santorini’s famous sunset, a trip to Santorini with their other half is the ultimate romantic experience. Enjoy Santorini’s deep blue waters, volcanic pebble beaches, magnificent rock formations and stunning moonscapes during a Santorini charter cruise. We recommend that you experience the once-in-a-lifetime romance and charm by a Santorini sailing yacht charter.
Another great experience in Santorini is to take a sunset cruise. Enjoy the view of the white towns on the edge of the caldera from the yacht and watch the sun go down. Most cruises offer dinner, drinks, and the chance to snorkel or swim. Get out into the water and sail to the volcano. You can swim in the Aegean Sea or in the hot springs, gaze at the crater of an active volcano, explore the city of Thirassia, and visit the Red and White Sand Beaches. Some of these journeys will end with a sunset view of Oia. One of the important industries of Santorini is wine. Assyritiko is the main grape grown in Santorini and is found in many wines made here. You can visit the wineries alone or go on tour. Santo Wines is the most popular winery to visit, but Venetsanos Winery is also a good choice. Unique tastes await you on your Santorini charter vacation.
