About
Some of Santorini's best views are from the water, so catch an unforgettable Aegean sunset from the deck of a sailing ship on an afternoon cruise that's ideal for couples, families, and small groups. Carefully selected stops let you soak in volcanic hot springs, swim at Red Beach, snorkel off the boat, and admire the Akrotiri lighthouse. As the sun sinks toward the horizon, drop anchor and savor a freshly prepared dinner with Greek wine, served right on deck.

Lovely sunset sail
Aug 2021
We had a really great time on the charter. You see many other touristy boats with crowds of people, it felt like such a treat to have just 10 on ours. Yiannis and his deck hand were so much fun to be around. You can tell Yiannis lives for the sea and enjoys being on the water and showing his guests the beauty of Santorini. We laughed, drank, and all in all had such a great time with Yiannis!

What a great day with Barca Sailing!!!
Aug 2021
We were so glad that we went with Barca Sailing!!! We decided against the larger more touristy boats that were packed with people and never actually sail. We watched many of them go by us as we actually sailed (awesome experience!) using only their motors along the way. This is a local experience led by an amazing local couple with amazing historical knowledge and love for what they do! You could feel the passion in this tour and the privilege they felt to show us their beautiful corner of the earth! The food was amazing and the drinks were great! A highlight of our trip for sure! And picked up, dropped off very timely. Great communication and a HUGE thank you for such a great day!!!!

Awesome experience with an amazing crew!!!
Sep 2021 • Couples
Awesome experience! Sailing with captain Yiannis and mate Nasia was a nice experience in its own! Cpt. Yiannis is a master of sailing, a nice personality and always open for discussion and jokes which made the cruise to feel special. We were 8 people on the boat which gave us a "private cruise" feeling. The food was nice and plenty!!! And of course UNLIMITED drinks 🙂 The boat was spacious and while the all the other cruises in Santorini offer options with Catamaran, sailing with cpt. Yiannis and his yacht is already something different (I personally don't like catamarans
so this cruise was perfect). The crew made necessary recommendations onto which beaches to stop for a swim or dinner, depending on the weather and the waves so we can have a nice experience. Absolutely recommend it and whenever we will be in Santorini again, we will trust Cpt. Yiannis and his crew for another amazing experience!

Terrible cruise with empty promises
Aug 2021 • Couples
Where to start? We didn’t make any of the stops promised on our tour. Never stopped at white or red beach. The captain said it was too rough even though many other boats stopped. Never made it to the volcanic hot springs. The website mentioned a mud bath, never happened. There was no offer of snorkeling. We did however stop at the captains other boat in an island not mentioned in the tour so he could work on it while we ate dinner instead of hosting us. There was no barbecue that was promised on the website. All in all, a giant waste of money.

Additionally, I was unaware they hadn’t charged me in full prior to the trip since I booked it 6 months in advance. Nobody mentioned this prior to boarding or even at the conclusion of the trip. Captain Yiannis, sp?, drove us back to Fira and it wasn’t until 9pm that we got out and left. He chased me down the street demanding I pay him cash immediately. Completely unprofessional. I would never go on another sailing cruise with him, even if if were free.

Wonderful sailing experience!
Great crew and wonderful sailing experience. Where others motored, we sailed. The beautiful sailing over the peaceful rythm of the waves in a stunning setting made for an unforgettable experience! The best sunset in Santorini is from the sea!

A must do! Our guide was awesome!,
We were lucky because we booked quite late and found it at Barka. It was a unique experience, Gregory and the Captain were very kind. The trip lasted 5 hours with two stops for open sea swimming and dinner. We also met 3 nice couples from New York, Italy and Great Britain with whom we enjoyed Santorini and Santorini wine. The children were extremely pleased especially with the captain who was nice to them. Our little boy even fell asleep next to him. People did everything, the rest the wine and the scenery. Let's not forget the transfer to the boat made by a punctual and very communicative guy. And Gregory was right "we are better"

My family had the most amazing experience during our private sunset sail. Everything from start to finish was perfectly executed and well organized. Once we stepped aboard we didn't have a care in the world! We loved the spots we were taken to! The food was excellent, the wine and beer flowed freely. It was a very special opportunity for my me, husband and our adult children. If anyone asks ANY of us what our favorite time was in Greece we ALL answer this sailing cruise.
I cannot say enough about this experience. It is one I will NEVER, EVER forget!
