Find Us at Old Port of Fira
The port from where we start most of our trips is the Old Port of Fira, reachable by cable car, on foot and as well by the donkeys. On foot it takes about 25 minutes, with donkey 15 and the cable car if it is not a busy day with the cruises it is running every 20minutes and it is really fast.
It is really easy to find us at port, the boat is usually docked at the port just 50 m from the cable car exit, exactley in front of the shop ” Souvenirs Sophie”. Captain Giannis will be really happy to show you the beauties of the Caldera.
