Jet Ski Tours to Santorini Volcano

One of the most popular activities on the island of Santorini is jet skiing. Imagine exploring the coastal beauties of this magnificent island, enjoying the stunning views, swimming at volcanic beaches and gazing at the massive caldera hills from bottom to top on your own jet ski away from the crowds.
As many travellers confess, this is an experience of a lifetime and it is strongly recommended to include it in the must things-to-do list when you visit Santorini.

The Jet Ski Safari tours offer 3 options:

The South Coast Tour

This tour starts at Perivolos, you will get to visit some of the island’s most beautiful beaches: Vlyhada, Red Beach, Kampia, White Beach and Mesa Pigadia Beach. It is the cheapest option but note that it does not include the Volcano.

The Volcano Tour

Not available in 2022. It is the most popular and costs slightly more than the South Coast tour but includes a visit to the Volcano. Although the ride might be slightly more demanding, it is definitely worthy and rewarding; the tour includes the same beaches as the ''South Coast Tour'', but instead of stopping at Mesa Pigadia Beach, you will continue to the Lighthouse of Akrotiri and from there you will head to Nea Kameni, at the Volcano.

The Extreme Volcano Tour

Not available in 2022. For the most adventurous ones that are willing to jet ski for several hours, the Extreme Volcano Tour does not end at the Volcano. In addition to the southern coast and Nea Kameni, you will also get to visit several other amazing locations and small islets: Skaros, Mouzakia Bay, Armeni Bay, Ammoudi Bay, Thirassia and Aspronisi. This is the most demanding jet ski route and of course the most expensive.

Note that a safety boat will accompany you during any of the tours just to make sure that everything is running smoothly. In case you get tired, you can board the boat and a member of the organizing company will ride your jet ski instead. Of course capturing on camera those spectacular landscapes and the whole experience is a must and the crew members will take many pictures of you during this one-of-a-kind adventure! Stopovers for diving or relaxing are also included in the tour itineraries.

Boat tours are also a very good option for those who want to visit the volcano on Santorini but they can not be compared to the adrenaline offered through the jet ski tours. The biggest advantage though, is that during this tour you will have the chance to enjoy some privacy since you will be riding the jet ski alone with the group and the crew. Also jet skis can approach the caldera cliffs in a very short distance and witness this spectacular scenery from a very unique angle.

The Jet Ski Safari tours are very popular and get sold out very quickly. If you are keen on living this experience, you are advised to book your place early (2-3 months) in advance.

How to get to the tour starting point?
The starting point for all jet ski tours is Perivolos Beach, at the south of Santorini.
Perivolos is located near the beach of Perissa and it is easy to get to this area if you are renting a car or any other vehicle.
For those using public transport to move around, the only direct bus to Perivolos leaves from Fira and the trip lasts between 20-30 minutes.
If you are staying in any other area, you will first have to get to Fira and then switch buses from there.
Another option is to get a taxi to Perivolos, either from Fira (trip duration: 20 minutes) or from Oia (trip duration: 30-40 minutes).
