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 !

Captain George and Marco - great sailors, chefs and hosts for our daylong cruise. Comfortable transport to and from our villa. Perfect classic yacht/sailboat ..the Elethria. Visited inaccessible beaches and swimming spots. Unlimited drinks and food. History lessons and perspectives shared....all inclusive. Great deal compared to travel agent directed mega boats. Keep it private for just you and your friends... More

This is a ten out of ten experience! We chartered a private cruise with Captain George for a 40th bday trip with 4 couples in Sep, 2015. After just 10 minutes on the boat, everyone in our group agreed - if we didn't do anything else on our trip to Greece - THIS CRUISE made our entire journey worthwhile! The... More

Capt George was very hospitable and we had amazing experience! The BBQ food was great with the mix of Greek food. The Tziki was authentic. We had snorkels given to us by capt George and the entire experience was worth it and was the highlight of our trip!

Excelled day out with Capt George and his wife. Private Yacht trip with a few mates . Capt George is very knowledgable, having sailed the Med for the last 30 years. His classic wooden sail boat is just that "Classic". We were fed lovely fresh food, and kept "hydrated" for the entire trip. Our trip around Santorini's coast line will... More
