        Lovely sailboat and great captain and crew! Hospitable, funny and knowledgeable!
        Captain Yannis and his crew are fantastic! He goes above and beyond to make this experience exceptional! He is gracious, funny a fantastic cook and a very experienced yachtsman! I would highly recommend his service. We were very lucky that he decided to sail an extra day (we were at the end of the season) but he accommodated us ( and even added chicken to his seafood menu for my daughter). We were so blessed to able to do this cruise and it turned out to be a private cruise, just 3 of us and the Captain and his crew Antonio! You will not be sorry if you book with him!

        Sunset in Santorini
        Wonderful sail and the captain and crew were very welcoming and knowledgeable! The captain, George, cooked the meal and it was sooo good. The sunset was nice even with the clouds!

        Must do in Santorini!
        The sunset cruise on 9/29/22 was awesome! The Skippers of the boat were Kristos and Maria Angeline, they were delightful! Their hospitality, knowledge and conversation were very enjoyable. My favorite parts were jumping off the boat to swim, the delicious food, fun guests plus the opportunity to Skipper the boat!

        Wonderful full day privat charter - Amazing
        This was our second tour with Barca Sailing (first time was our honeymoon in 2013) and once again, we were so satisfied with everything. This time we chose a full day private charter and that was amazing. Just cruising around the Island and in the Calderea, at the beaches for snorkeling and swimming and chilling on the sundeck with a cold beer or a glass of wine, enjoying great snacks and food served by the crew. Last time we cruised with Captain Yannis, but his crew did not disappoint us in any way. We even had Captain Yannis join us for the sundown and tour back to the port. We will come back for another tour and we would recommend everyone to chose Barca Sailing for a more personal and fair priced deal. Al the way Captain Yannis and Lena are doing a great job.... And also you George... doing the transfer this time.

        Great sailing sunset experience! Recommended!
        Super experience with two guys super nice with all the people in the boat! We learn from the captain and with the sail open we had a super sailing with a inique sunset on our back. We recommend you to book a sunset cruise with Sailing Boat if you want a unique and few people experience!

        Wonderful trip. Knowledgeable staff who knew the history as well as the best angle for photos. Most beautiful sunset we have ever seen, it really is worth all the hype. Fresh meal prepared aboard the boat. Small intimate group.

        Captain Yianni !
        Best small group sunset tour you can do. Captains Yianni and Yiorgios were very hospitable and the meal they supplied was sublime . You get collected from your hotel and returned In aircon bus . The boat is very clean and comfortable with toilets and drinks inclusive. Yiorgos gives you a descriptive narrative about the island and may even allow you to skipper the boat Greetings from Australia Lads and thanks for a great day Yianni and Maria

        Sunset Cruise & Amazing Food!
        We booked through our hotel manager & she promised us a sunset cruise. The cruise was so much more than that, we learnt some history & got to visit places that are very difficult to get to on land. The food was amazing & all prepared on board!! The experience as a whole was one in a lifetime and we would highly recommend!!! The sunset of course was uninterrupted & breathtaking!!

        Magical sunset moments
        Booked the cruise on the fly as we were arriving in Santorini. Not knowing what to expect, it was great to see how easy it was to find the marina and how punctual Barca sailing is. We had a wonderful captain in George who described beautifully the island’s geologic, mythical and social history during the tour, while keeping watch on our engagement and comfort. The stops to swim or simply observe the many facets of the island were incredible, and the beautiful sunset marking our return capped off a wonderful afternoon. On top of that, they prepared a feast for dinner! And even had the thoughtfulness to wish a passenger happy birthday with a cake. One of the best experiences in Santorini and one I would highly recommend.

        Family trip
        George allowed my dad to sail/steer the boat which we all enjoyed. If you have a request they will take you. Plenty of Opportunities to snorkel (although they only have goggles but no snorkels). Bring your own towel and sunscreen. They serve wine, beer, soda (not diet) and a meal. Our sunset tour got back around 9pm. There were 10 guests aboard plus the two guides and we all fit comfortably

        Remarkable day at sea with Captain George and Barca Sailing
        What an incredible and memorable day on the Caldera in Santorini. Our day started by being picked up in Oia. We were brought to the port by the Barca Sailing transfer service after picking up one other couple. We met up with Captain George and Maria-Angela for a day of sailing. To say this day was perfection is an understatement. Their hospitality and joy of sailing made for the perfect day on the water. We stopped at the Red Beach for the first swim of the day. Then followed by another swim by the volcano island and a home cooked traditional Greek dinner. We finished our sail with an iconic view of the Santorini sunset. While sipping on Greek white wine, Maria-Angela put some Greek music on and taught us the Hasapiko Greek dance. Truly a “Mama Mia” experience

        Excellent small group experience!
        Decided at the last minute to do a sunset cruise. Hotel highly recommended this company and they were able to accommodate 4 of us. Amazing crew, sailing experience, and the meal was outstanding! Loved the small group experience ( only 12 of us) and enjoyed learning about the history of the island and sights we were seeing. Highly recommend!

      What a wonderful way to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the Santorini caldera! Unfortunately it was a still day yet it was so relaxing going with a small group. In May, though the air temp was perfect, the water was still cold. All eight of us took the plunge at both stops. It was my first time seeing rocks float; lava rocks that is. We'll take this tour again if we're fortunate enough to return to Santorini.

      Great experience seeing the beaches and caldera! There are many options for sailing - this one was very chill (8 guests, minimal fuss about rules, relatively simple logistics).

      George and Antonio did a great job sailing, preparing lunch, and pouring drinks. The highlight was diving off the boat and swimming in the caldera. George was an extremely knowledgeable tour guide - a local just sharing stories and experiences. More time under sail would have been ideal (hence the 4 stars), but overall this was great.

      We had an absolutely fantastic morning sailing with Yiannis and George. The boat is beautiful, the food was great and we really appreciated the great commentary and information provided along the way. We were celebrating a birthday and they went out of their way to make it extra special by providing a birthday cake and joining in on the celebration. It was the highlight of our trip to Santorini.

      We had a half day cruise in the morning on June 11th and its was excellent!! Super friendly staff, nice boat and there was only 4 people which was great. We heard some historical information on the island geology/ geography and visited some great spots for swimming. We had also a great lunch on board. It could hardly had been a better day! Definitely recommend Barca's sailing and captain Yiannis and hope to return for a sunset trip ;)

      We were a party of four adults that took the 6-hour Semi-Private Morning Caldera Sailing Cruise from Santorini on-board a 49-foot sailing yacht offered by Barca Sailing. Our cruise ship arrived late at Santorini. This delay reduced our sail time to 5-hours, but Barca Sailing still was able to accommodate us with a private sail. We took the cruise ship tender boat to shore, went up the cliff by cable car, walked the few blocks to the pick-up point, and then were transported by car to the Vlychada safe harbor where we departed. This process seems daunting, but was easy to accomplish. From cruise cabin to set sail took about 60 minutes.

      While it was a beautiful Sunday with clear blue skies and few rough waves, we had little wind and therefore had to motor around the island and caldera. Nevertheless, it still was perfect! We motored out into the caldera, past several beautiful beaches, and swam in several spots. We also had a great lunch on-board the yacht.

      Barca Sailing far exceeded our expectations! They demonstrated excellence at every step of the process. Lena (manager) responded to our inquiries and questions within 24 hours or sooner, especially about weather conditions as our trip neared. She provided a written detailed description of sailing options and costs. She had an easy to use booking process and offered multiple payment options. Also as noted above, our cruise ship arrived late into Santorini. I was able to communicate with Lena by email the night before, and we were able to adjust our pickup time with very little effort. This was great service!

      Fotis (yacht captain) spoke very good English, demonstrated excellent seamanship and navigation skills, was proud of country and city, and easy to converse with and at ease with questions. He was assisted by his wife, Katerina, who performed crew duties and cooked us an excellent Greek meal that included beer and wine. She spoke very good English as well. We all had a very good time sailing by motor and talked about everything.

      Once again, thank-you Lena, Fotis and Katerina. We had a memorable time! We would not hesitate to call upon Barca Sailing again to arrange another sailing trip in Santorini.

      We had a fantastic time with Barca Sailing. Captain Yiannis and mate Jorgos were amazing hosts, playing music, pouring drinks and cooking us a fabulous lunch. They also told us lots about the island and even offered us a chance to sail the boat!

      The day started out with a transfer from our hotel in Perissa straight to Vlychada to start the cruise, which was included with the price we paid on Viator. There were only 7 guests in total on our boat, which meant a super friendly atmosphere and plenty of room for everyone to spread out. We had a few breaks for swimming and managed to avoid a lot of the larger catamarans for the most part that we’re all departing and returning all at once.

      My husband and I did 2 Catamaran trips last year in Santorini, which thankfully were only half full due to Covid restrictions. This year, I noticed that all of the catamarans were packed! So I’m so happy that we picked Barca sailing as an alternative, to have a small friendly group, fantastic service and plenty of room on board, not to mention the amazing views from within the caldera and actually getting to switch off the engines and sail towards the volcano.

      The landscape of Santorini is amazing but Yiannis who is the Captain just makes the trip unforgettable! 5h of pure joy, laughing tears and a delicious meal made this adventure to something very unique on the island!
      Hope to see you again and thank you very much!
