Captain George has been sailing the Aegean for over 25 years and is the creator of the sunset cruise in its present form. 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.

Really enjoyed the evening cruise! This is the best way to enjoy the island and its surroundings! Swimming in the hot springs was amazing. This is also there best seat to see the sunset! Capt George and his crew were very hospitable and cooked an awesome meal! I highly recommend for everyone to join Captain George for a cruise!

What a blast! We toured all around the island, saw all of the beaches, swam in multiple coves and even had a quiet moment in the "hot springs", an area where the volcano seeps sulfur and some heat into the sea. We were treated kindly, offered delicious local food, and had an overall relaxing and fabulous day. Truly, the highlight... More

On the advice of a family we met in Crete who went on a sunset cruise with Captain George, we signed up for a cruise for six members of our family. It is the real thing. Not a flashy boat, but Captain George was engaging, the food was terrific, and we got to know about the island of Santorini. We... More

After looking at the many sailing experiences on offer in Santorini, I decided to book a private sunset cruise for my wife & I and what a fantastic trip we had. The wooden sailing boat has the feel and charm of a bygone era & was a superior choice ahead of speedboats or catamarans. A warm welcome at the quayside... More

We did the sunset cruise with Captain George and his deckhand, Michael and thoroughly enjoyed it!! It was very casual and relaxing. We swam at different beaches, and then in the hot springs (not so hot) near the volcano and then Captain George cooked up a delicious feast on the bbq. Michael served up drinks and nibbles along the way!... More

Captain George. Thank you for this opportunity to sail with you and Dimitri. Your wisdom and stories. Your wonderful stops through the Caldera. What amazing views! The closing of the port was a bonus. I will consider you and Eleftheria an extended part of my family always. Until next time. Cheers! Laura

My friends and I (a group of 8) chartered the entire boat for €750, for the sunset cruise! First, we were picked up right at our doorstep at 3.30pm and chauffeured right to the Vilchada (?) port, where Captain George welcomed us onto the Eleftheria. I'm not sure how to describe how the boat looks like, but it's a nice... More

We did the cruise in Sept 2014 and can say it was the best day of our week long trip in Santorini. Capt. George and crew make everyone feel very welcome and relaxed. Views of the island make it a beautiful experience and you get the chance to go out and swim and enjoy the calm, clear blue waters. In... More

Yachting was the best way to view Santorini and Captain George created the perfect experience. You will never find a better captain! We enjoyed a wonderful cruise with our group including a gourmet picnic lunch on board while anchored off the coastline. We enjoyed our journey so much and repeated it again the following week with a new group of... More
