Important notes:

1. You will receive the pick-up information one day before the cruise.

2. Kindly note that the itinerary and stops of a cruise may be subject to alterations without prior notice in case the conditions are not appropriate to sail outside the Caldera.

3. The tour duration is different throughout the season, especially the sunset cruise. During June, the tour lasts about 6 hours (daylight is longer), while in October is about 4 hours and 30 minutes.

4. All yachts and boats in Greece cannot moor directly on the beach. We have selected the best points for swimming and snorkeling, the closest possible to the beach.

5. Hot Springs: It is good to know that catamarans/yachts stop 50m away from the warm sulfuric water of the Hot Springs bay. The temperature in the Hot Springs area is up to 4°C warmer than the open water. Guests swim securely close to the Volcano.

6. Passengers have to remove their shoes before embarkation.
