Captain George has been sailing the Aegean for over 30 years and is the creator of the sunset cruise in its present form.

It all started back in the early 90’s when he started BBQ cruises on Santorini and various islands in the

Aegean – reminiscent of the Australian weekends of his youth.

His passion for the sea and tradition has lead him to restore one of the most important boats that was used for transportation of people and goods between the islands and the mainland for centuries. The Greek " Trehandiri" nowadays are open museums that carry memories of a world that is fading right in front of us. Join us on a cruise that will give you the opportunity to see Santorini through our eyes !

We had a terrific time celebrating the life of a very good friend and spreading his ashes near Red Beach. Captain George and Michael were terrific and made it a perfect day. Food was terrific as well!

we had a great experience sailing in Santorini. It was a sunny day. The crew prepared a BBQ on board. Our captain gave us many informations about the sea, the coast and the history of the island. My wife loved this experience. Thanks.

We went out with Captain George on a semi-private cruise. It was my wife and I, and we were paired with another group of 5. The boat was a perfect size for that number of people, and I felt like we were able to interact with the other group while also being able to enjoy our own company. The cruise... More

I emailed Captain George inquiring and he was very responsive and we booked for the next day. We were picked up on time and then had a pleasant surprise it was just the four of us on the boat for the afternoon. The food was amazing and well catered especially as my teenage son is a vegetarian. Would highly recommend... More

Since I am a sailor, I keep an open mind about going on any cruises. Captain George has a 55' ship that is a pleasure to cruise in, and much more traditional than the fiberglass cats all around the island. Our group of 11 long term friends and adult children took the sunset cruise. George and his mate (Michael) were... More

Captain George and Michael were amazing. WE felt welcomed, safe, comfortable and pampered. We were met at our hotel and shuttled to the beautiful wooden yacht for a sunset cruise. The snorkelling and swimming in the hot springs was such fun and every time we returned onto the boat, we were greeted with a new snack. Wine, beer, soda, water... More

On an island that is overpriced and over crowded, spending the afternoon on Captain George's Eleftheria boat was like winning the lottery. Captain George and Michael were the perfect hosts as they too us around the better part of Santorini. The boat was super clean, the itinerary was very leisurely, and the stops were perfect. What separates this excursion from... More

Captain George and Michael outdid themselves. We hired the beautiful wooden yacht for a sunset cruise in July of 2016 and saw so many highlights (pictured below) We sailed to the red beach, to the hot springs( don't wear your silver jewelry while swimming there - sulfur darkens it) , swam in caves,jumped off the side of the boat, and...

My family and I booked a sunset cruise with Captain George and it was everyone's favorite day in Greece! The transfer picked us up right at the hotel, which made it very convenient and hassle free (the driver even went out of his way to return a lost item back to our hotel later the next day). The boat is... More

Traveling with a new crew of 3 girlfriends this year, I wanted them to experience the Eleftheria voyage with Captain George & his first mate Mike & we were extremely surprised to discover we had the entire ship to ourselves after Captain George agreed (once again) to my request for a hour of Vlyhada Beach time before our departure.
