Jet Ski Tours in Santorini

Jet ski tour to volcano with views of Oia and caldera cliffs.

A Jet Ski Tour through the caldera to the volcano and hot springs is one of the highlights of a Santorini visit.

Santorini Jet Ski Tours

  • Jet Ski Tour To The Volcano – the best jet ski tour in Santorini. Awesome!
  • There are three options: The South Coast Tour (visit the beaches and swimming spots along the south coast). Or the Volcano Tour (south coast tour plus a trip into the caldera with a visit to the volcano and hot spring). Or the Extreme Volcano Tour (the volcano tour plus a trip across the entire caldera with visits to Thirassia and Ammoudi Bay below Oia).
  • I recommend doing a tour that goes into the caldera so either the Volcano Tour (140 minutes) or the Extreme Volcano Tour (220 minutes). The Volcano Tour is probably best if you’re not experienced with jet skis.
  • Tours are small. If you book for two or three there’s a good chance it’s just your party on the tour.
  • A motorboat accompanies the tour the whole way just in case there’s some difficulty or if someone gets tired and needs a break in the boat (then one of the staff will ride the jet ski).
  • A photographer is on board the boat and takes tons of pictures. If you want copies you do have to purchase them, but there’s no pressure if you don’t like them.
  • This is one of the most insanely fun things I’ve done in my life. Really awesome. And the views looking up at the caldera cliffs are just utterly stunning.

Santorini Jet Ski Tour to the Volcano

Location of Santorini Jet Ski Tour.

The jet ski tours depart from Perivolos Beach in Santorini. There’s a direct bus from Fira and lots of nearby parking and restaurants.

Jet ski to the Santorini caldera.

I’ve done the tour twice. These are photos from our first tour (when my son was 14).

Santorini boat with jet ski tour.

A boat accompanies the tour and is always nearby should riders need any assistance or a break from jet skiing.

The Santorini Volcano Jet Ski Tour.

The water is relatively calm as you start the tour (along the south coast of the island). It makes for an easy and relaxed way to get comfortable on the jet ski.

Santorini Jet Ski Tour in the caldera.

As you enter the caldera the water gets a little rougher (and more fun). But if you want to keep it lowkey you just slow down. There’s no pressure to ride fast. 

Jet ski tour with stop for swimming and snorkel.

It’s easy to stop for breaks along the ride and go for a swim or relax. There’s snorkel gear on the boat if you’re inclined.

The guides pay a lot of attention to safety. Riders are instructed to ride in a well-spaced line behind the boat.

There’s a photographer on board the boat taking lots of pictures. (You do need to purchase if you want your own copies.)

The scenery on the entire ride is incredible. Staring up at the huge cliffs is amazing.

Sharing jet ski between two people.

You can also share a sea jet if that makes you feel more comfortable. Just book one tour, then let them know in the confirmation email that it will be two people riding on one jet ski. (There might be a small added fee.)

Santorini Jet Ski Rentals for Group.

They have lots of jet skis if you’re part of a big group.
