It all started back in the 80’s when he started BBQ cruises on various islands in the Aegean – reminiscent of the Australian weekends of his youth. The sunset cruise he created here on Santorini started out as an afternoon swim at the most popular spots on the island. The Red and White beach the Hot springs and the south bay of the volcano or Aspronisi. Although now almost 30 other boats have copied the idea, the original can only be experienced with Capt. George. « less

This was perhaps the best day of our trip to Greece (and it was a fabulous trip). Captain George was a great host, and is very knowledgable about the island. The cruise was relaxing and wonderful and everything is taken care of, from food and drinks to transport. I would highly reccommend the sunset cruise, especially for couples.

Forget crowded day trip boats. Forget the fleet of catamarans that follow each other out of harbour and parade around the sights of the caldera. This is the original. The boat is a lovely old sailing boat and Captain George has been sailing the islands for decades. He knows everything about Santa's and will regail you with stories about the... More

Our day at sea with captain george was a dream… we were a family group of 6 on holiday in santorini. Captain george picked us up at our villa and took us down to his boat. His explanations were thorough and we really got a feel for the island. He prepared a feast for us! Me and my dad are... More

This was one of the highlights of our two week trip to Athens, Corinth and Santorini. What a lovely afternoon of spectacular sights, wonderful swimming in warm water, friendly and relaxed staff, decent wine :), lovely fresh fruit and other snacks... and all on board on a super-cool wooden sailboat captained by G. We were a group of about 14... More

Thank you to Captain George and Dimitri for the most special sunset sail in Santorini! Captain George stops at all the right places, but more importantly at the right time to avoid the crowds. We stopped at the white beach for a swim in the clear blue waters, before the traditional stop at the hot springs. Captain George and Dimitri... More

A big group of us were in Santorini for a friends wedding. I had organized an afternoon on the water for the group with Captain George. By far this was the highlight of the trip for everyone. Captain George was amazing and was able to accommodate a large, loud, booze loving group of Americans. I highly recommend booking a day... More

I had a great time and Captain George was very nice, but it would be hard to truly classify this as a sailing trip. Despite reasonable breezes and a sailboat, we motored the entire time, and almost never had so much as a sail up. The port is at the far southern end of Santorini, but to get to the... More

Thanks for the review nda99 This cruise is not about testing people limits - It's a cruise to see, swim and enjoy the sites of this unique place ! On the day you sailed with us the wind didn't exceed 12 knots -- 3 Beaufort ( http://www.windfinder.com/windstatistics/santorini ) which on one hand we had very small waves that for most... More

My husband and I took a sunset cruise with Captain George on 12 September and it was a lovely experience. George and his crew-mate were friendly and informative, there was plenty of space on the boat (the group sizes are deliberately kept small) and the food was excellent. Having watched the sunset with the crowds in Oia I'd definitely prefer... More

Captain George is the best person, he is very knowledgeable and will make you have the best experience. He knows all the best spots for swimming as well. The service was top class and i highly recommend it. The food was excellent, the bbq fish and all the local dishes I am still craving.

The crew is what makes the trip. Their knowledge and experience means you will get to see the best sights at the best times. Don't be lured in by the flash plastic boats, enjoy the traditional wooden Eleftheria with Captain George and his friendly crew, you won't be disappointed.
