My crew and I welcome you aboard the S/Y Eleftheria for a day of relaxation. Eleftheria is a one of a kind"Trechandiri " the "all Greek" wooden sail-boat. The boat was designed especially for the Aegean to be as stable as possible and the name relates to a fast boat used to transfer people and goods to the Islands. The S/Y Eleftheria is the only Greek traditional wooden boat departing from Vlyhada port and cruising to the caldera.
Feel the difference with the original and best cruise on Santorini.

The advantages of the Vlychada departures is that on the way to the Volcano you can see and swim at the Red and White beach, sail past the Venetian Lighthouse (Faros) and enter the Caldera from the south which has the best view of Fira, Imerovigli,the Old Port and the Volcano. Swim at the Hot Springs and Aspronisi, and see the sun set on the horizon.
