Arrival in Santorini
The itinerary lasts almost 2.5 hours from Rethymnon. At the port of Santorini, our escorts (dressed in a SEA JETS uniform and holding signs with the bus numbers) will welcome the participants and escort them in the right buses.
- First Stop: Oia
Then, the buses will leave for Oia. In the days of high traffic, the buses will follow a route by the sea on the east side of the island. Depending on the existing traffic in Oia and the timetable of the tour, the participants will stay for approximately 1½ hour. Later on, the bus will depart for the next stop, Fira.
- Second Stop: Fira
On the way to the town of Fira, the participants will receive interesting information by their escort about the history and the geography of the island, while travelling through a large part of the island by road. On their arrival in Fira, they will spend 1 hour to enjoy the Cycladic view from the Caldera, the paved little alleys and the old traditional houses accompanied by their escort. Afterwards, the visitors shall meet up at the Cathedral of Fira and they will be informed about the last part of the tour:
1st option: Visit the Volcano of Santorini (extra charge). The participants will enjoy the unique beauty of the volcano and have the opportunity to swim in its hot springs.
2nd option: Visit the black sand beach of Perissa for swimming and lunch.
3rd option: More free time at the capital of the island, Fira.
*Due to traffic jams on the road from Fira to Perissa Beach, the participants who will choose to go to Perissa
Beach, might stay 45 minute less in Fira.

Finally, the participants will return to the vessel where they will be able to enjoy a beautiful view of the Aegean and Cretan sea in the 2 open decks of the Champion Jet vessel.
