      Amazing!
      Could not recommend this enough. The staff are really helpful and easy going. Worth every penny. We were here in honeymoon and wanted to explore the islands on our own so we could stop anywhere and be anywhere for as long as we wanted

      Superb
      This was one of the best boat rental experiences I have ever had, and I have rented boats across the Mediterranean many times. We got a transfer from Oia to Port Vlychada in the morning. The port is large, so it is helpful to know that SeaBreeze is on the front end at the end of the first main dock as you enter the harbor. We had a family of 6 with 4 children 8 years old and under. We brought our own life jackets for them, but SeaBreeze has them included. We showed up, got a very short tutorial of the island and the boat, and then we were on our way for a lovely day on the water. No nonsense, no needless waiting. The boat felt new and clean and drove like a dream. We were gone all day, so we stopped off at one of the islands for lunch at a restaurant where you can dock. Highly recommend if you are out all day with kids. These people do it right, very courteous, efficient and professional. Cannot recommend them highly enough. We watched the sunset and came in to port. One of the biggest highlights of our month trip.

      An Unforgettable Santorini Escape: A Skippered Cruise with Breathtaking Views
      I had an incredible experience on the skippered cruise in Santorini! The captain was friendly, knowledgeable, and ensured we explored the most breathtaking spots. The yacht was luxurious, and the onboard service was top-notch. Watching the sunset from the deck was truly magical. I highly recommend this cruise for anyone visiting Santorini!

      The Speed Freak Skipper from Hell
      Santorini Seabreeze RentABoatSantorini 1 Star Saturday 24 June 2023 We booked a day boat trip to Folegandros island with this company, with local friends from Santorini - four of us. We selected the option of a 10 metre boat. This was deceptive as in fact the skipper’s cabin took up over a third of the boat. We had made detailed requests for the boat company to supply onboard drinks, including beers, wine, gin, tonic, limes and ice and were assured that these would all be supplied and that there would be both a fridge and a ‘head’ (loo) on board. Neither of which latter appliances (fridge or loo) we ever saw, curtesy of the ‘hero’ skipper. The drinks were all supplied but clearly the skipper didn’t get the hint that we hoped for a pleasurable boat trip to Folegandros and back (forecast schedule of circa 2 hrs 15 mins each way in good weather) and after all, the schedule allowed for us to spend 6-7 hours on the island, so no need for haste. We set off after a cursory introduction from our skipper who told us to squeeze into the limited front outside area of the boat until we cleared the harbour and then ordered us to go to the back and STAY there. One member of our party chose to sit in the cabin next to the skipper and the remaining 3 of us squeezed onto the rear cushioned platform like sardines pressed together with the two on left and right needing to place a foot on the floor for balance - no water nor drinks offered by the skipper; who THEN took us on the boat trip to hell... It was a beautiful day in Santorini, clear skies, no wind and perfect conditions - supposedly - the skipper was clearly able to handle the boat competently, BUT UNFORTUNATELY had an overwhelming need to PROVE that he could handle it at FULL THROTTLE at 30 knots and was determined to break his world speed record of reaching Folegandros in under the usual 2-2.15 hours so we endured 1 hr 20 minutes of clinging on for dear life to rails above our heads as we smashed through the seas without refreshments nor any concern from the skipper as we repeatedly smacked our heads against the glass of the cabin behind us. We managed to deduce that even should we have wanted to use the loo on board, there would be no opportunity of requesting such an option from the hell bent maniac driving our boat on a mission to oblivion - the loo was underneath the seat we were clinging to for dear life and any move would have pitched us overboard (or into the enormous engine immediately in front of us at the rear), without the skipper even noticing until after he had passed “the imaginary finishing line” to receive his silver cup for breaking his own personal speed record. On arrival at the harbour at Folegandros, the skipper suddenly became all relaxed and chummy after attempting to turf us off the boat, but we had insisted on relaxing FINALLY with some cold drinks on board before departing for our day on the island. Customer service and care of the personal needs or preferences of his clients didn’t even enter the equation for one nano second. Hopefully this review might prick and deflate his over inflated ego and take it down several suitable sizes to something that fits. My husband and I and also our Greek friends have done MANY boat trips before, not only from Santorini to other islands such as Sikinos, but in Thailand and Africa, Vietnam and Indonesia. We have experienced excellent sea and weather conditions as well as severe storm conditions and violent seas, but always have felt in safe hands and service has been maintained at top standard for us as clients and passengers, even when soaked through, with humour maintained intact and a good time had by all - that is life and we take all that is contrary to weather expectations and hopes. NOT THIS TIME!!!! We were so exhausted by the time we returned to Santorini at top speed on the return. We were inexplicably transferred to another boat in the harbour, which involved clambering off our boat with all bags and cool box and were then parked and moored and had to climb over 5 other boats to get to solid ground – the skipper did not assist us and it was left to one of our friends (aged 80) to assist us and carry bags. The skipper (clearly expecting a tip) then jauntily asked whether we had enjoyed our day on Folegandros. We coldly assured him that we HAD enjoyed our time on land, but NOT our boat transport to and from, thanks to his own selfish ego to show off his prowess for speed over comfort or best interests of the clients on board. Neither we nor our Greek friends will ever use this boat company again.

      great trip
      this was an amazing day out on the water...boat is beautiful, like brand new...captain was friendly and helpful...we're a family of 6 with kids 12 - 19 and this was our favorite day of our vacation...we essentially got to decide where to go and where to stop and swim, there was no pressure to move on to the next spot...snacks and drinks were plentiful...really a great experience...as amazing as Santorini is, seeing it from the water makes it even more impressive

      Great Experience
      The Rib boat was lovely. Georgios (George) was an amazing skipper. Even though the swell was a little high on the day we went out, he still was a master of his boat and handled it well so that we were comfortable and had a relaxing and enjoyable day. We got to swim and snorkel which was lovely.

      Great boat and great customer service.
      We needed a boat for 8 people that we could use for the day and visit the Caldera. We booked 2days in advance and got a speedy reply. They organised our transfers and gave a thorough briefing of the boat and the local water. Safe to say we saw things you couldn’t have from land.

      • Santorini is one of the places you must visit, is unique and worth taking a boat trip. • The company's boats are new and its staff is helpful, they give you instructions on how to command the boat, where to go and what to see. • Also the diploma is not obligatory because you have the choice The captain of the company. • A unique experience that you should not miss !!

      Amaizing experience
      So happy with our choice of The captain marvel boat for halft day cruise. The boat is in excellent condition, spacious and comfortable. A full briefing was given to us before departure with the best spots to do. The view of Santorini is even more beautiful from the sea. I highly recommend the afternoon tour with a breathtaking sunset. We enjoyed our afternoon and recommend this company. 5 Stars !

    If you want to rent a really luxurious new boat which is one of the best equipped and maintained chartered boats i have rented, then you need look no further. Forget the others and charter from Anestis and his team, they will really look after you as well.

    This is a great way to see more of Santorini and the surrounding Islands and i cant recommend it highly enough to you. If you go for a full day you can also catch the sunset from the water which is sensational

    We rented a boat for 6 adults without a licence June '22 and it was the highlight of our holiday. We originally booked a full day, but I got my dates wrong and they were very helpful in rescheduling for us at a busy time of year at very short notice. We ended up doing a sunset cruise rather than a full day and we felt that was enough.

    Boat was very easy to drive and we had a very good briefing beforehand. It was great going around the volcano and seeing red and white beach from the water. Dropped anchor at a few places for swimming. We followed the catamarans with crews on which made navigating easy but had freedom to do what we wanted.

    Speakers on boat were very good and there was Bluetooth connectivity. Sunshelter was easy to take up and down. Cooler box kept our drinks very cold.

    We got the transfer through SeaBreeze and it was exceptionally handy.

    Overall a great day, and found all the staff brilliant to deal with.

    Worth every penny! The boats are well kept and clean, the GPS has all the main hazards and anchoring areas marked clearly and the depth finder means you can confidently know when to drop anchor without catching the propeller.

    You will get sent a text message the day before your booking, simply get a taxi (€20-25 from Fira) and go to the exact location on the map near the harbour entrance. It’s a good idea to ask your driver to come back for you later.

    Anestis and his partner started this company just 2 years ago and they are doing a brilliant job. Great service, communication and safety briefing.

    Hugely recommend them to anyone

    We had an absolutely incredible experience using this company!

    Of all areas in Europe where you can drive license-free boats, I highly recommend Santorini as you have the opportunity to drive your boat to all iconic destinations of the Caldera.

    We had the pleasure of meeting Anestis and Eirini who took great care and time to explain all safety procedures on-board the boat, the safest routes to take and the best spots to swim or have food.
    Very thorough explanations for the clientz to be completely safe and informed.

    Anestis and Eirini are incredibly friendly people, very professional and put the client's safety and enjoyment first.

    We were meant to rent the boat on a Wednesday but Anestis pushed it back for us to Saturday to make sure that the winds and waves were safe to use. Incredibly important to be in great hands.
    Also, if we hadn't been able to push back, he would have organised an experienced skipper to take us.

    The views were fantastic and only YOU get to choose what you want to see and where you want to be. That's freedom!

    Best experience ever to visit the Caldera!
    I highly recommend this boat rental company!

    We can highly recommend this place to anyone willing to rent a boat in Santorini. We were greeted on time by friendly owners, who gave us detailed, helpful instructions on how to ride this boat. We have received cold drinks and snacks, they were also super on time for collecting the boat from us. They were friendly and encouraging, we really admired the service of the owners.

    We rent a boat from Anestis and this was one of the best things we did during our vacation in Santorini.
    It was all over a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ experience!
    The boat was in perfect shape, very new and fancy. Anestis and his very nice girlfriend explained everything on a very good understandable way and spoke exzellent English! He was during the whole day reachable for us.
    The price-performance was very good and we can only highly recommend it!
    We see us next year again!

    We had a fantastic – and by that I mean mind blowing, beautiful, magical – day with our boat. And we did not even have perfect weather, it was unexpectedly windy, but we found a little bay where we spend some time swimming mostly alone in perfectly clear aegean blue water. Exactly what we had dreamt of.

    The boat was very well kept and easy to ride, I would guess somewhere around 12 feet long with a 30 hp engine and a very easy to use gps system that shows you which rocks to avoid (there are basically none), depth meter and everything you need. It even had a stereo system with Bluetooth connectivity which we did not use because we are not morons who disturb the magical experience of swimming in tranquil, aegean blue water with music. Those people are rightly trapped on the tourist boats and punished with EDM.

    I actually do have a license to drive boats, still this one could have been easily driven by anyone after the thorough introduction by Anestis, who is not only competent but easily the nicest guy you have met since, well, ever. He also directed us to the best places to see, where to swim best and where (and of course how) to anchor. Plus the bist comes equipped with a cooler with some water, cokes and a savoury snack.

    All in all: If you think about renting a boat donut, it is definitely a great experience, and since I only ever did it here I cannot compare to other rentals on Santorini, but I can say with certainty that the boats, the service and the human touch of operations are on the highest level. I highly recommend it.

    What a great experience! We rented a boat for the morning to explore the island and swim at each of the unique beaches Santorini has to offer! Anestis and the team were so nice and really helpful! They took the time to give us a full safety briefing and explain everything in detail. They also gave us a great itinerary which was really easy to follow with great suggestions! The boat is in great condition and is equipped with GPS and a sound system. It is such a fun day - I would really recommend it!

    Renting a boat with Boat Rental Santorini was an amazing and unique experience. Anestis, his girlfriend and their staff are the most friendly and funny people we met in Greece. They are perfect hosts and boat instructors. We were introduced to the boat very detailed and patient. Our boat was clean and in excellent condition. Driving the boat is so much fun that a one day rental is not enough. The price is very good and if you ever have the chance to rent a boat you should rent with Anestis. You do not need a license for driving the boat and this kind of rental in our mind is a lot better and more flexible than a guided katamaran tour. Thanks for this great experience!

    So, after 30 mins of the guy explaining the map and then another 20 mins going through the things on the boat, you’re only left with around 4 hours with the boat.
    Having your own boat is nice and cool, allows you to be free. However it is difficult to drive when waves are big and winds are strong.
    We released the anker down when we found a spot, it would not get back up and when we called the guy for support he didn’t come and told us to cut it which was a €50 euro fee. So I found that ridiculous. When I asked him if there’s an emergency what do we do, he told us to call him!
    I don’t feel that it was fare for him to deduct that money as we called for support and he didn’t come.
    BUT after we cut the anker we managed to watch sunset which was great.

    Hello Sukrajan Gill, Thank you for being with us! We are really sorry to hear that you didnt enjoyed as you would like our service, but we will have to inform you that the safety briefing in total is 30 minutes and you left in time just like everybody else was with you on the other boats. By the moment you called us we explained what you need to do if your anchor is stuck down, even if we came the anchor was going to be as stuck as before and we couldnt get it out like you did. It wasnt a real emergency and we didnt came to you for help or assistance. Unfortunately since you lost your anchor you will had to pay for it, it wasnt our fault and we wish you better luck next time! However we are really glad you enjoyed the sunset at least. Best Regards Anestis Galanakis
