CATAMARAN AND SULFUROUS WATERS
In full sail around the island of Santorini. And then: black, gray, red, orange and green. We haven't gone crazy, these really are the colors of the seawater at the Palea Kameni hot springs. Yet more color is added by the fish you'll see while snorkeling under the castle of Agios Nikolaos in Oia. Grand finale: a souvlaki snack. If you don't know what it is, come and find out.
- Palea Kameni hot springs, photo stop and dip in the sea.
- Panoramic view of the island of Thirasia and Ammoundi bay from the catamaran
- The adventure begins as soon as a tender from ship at anchor in the harbor delivers you to Athinios harbor, where you'll board the catamaran and set sail for a cruise around the islets of the Santorini caldera. Enjoy a dip in the hot springs at Palea Kameni , with its sea bed colored by a high percentage of sulfur and a 35-degree temperature.
- Enjoy the eye-popping kaleidoscope of colors created by the minerals that alter the color of the sea from green to orange. It's a spectacular sight, so post it on Instagram to the envy of your friends.
- You'll find even more shades of color in the multicolored fish you'll see while snorkeling around the ancient castle of Agios Nikolaos.
- Before rejoining the ship, round the day off with souvlaki, a typical Greek street food. Do you know what the difference is with gyros? Here's a clue: the secret lies in whether the meat is cooked horizontally or vertically.
