Sunset Caldera Sailing Cruise

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.

Wonderful morning cruise with Captain Yiannis and Zoe. Told Yiannis beforehand that my 11 year old daughter was nervous about sailing and he instantly took her under his wing, letting her steer the boat, feeding the fish with her and scaring off rival boats true pirate style, ahagh! Great snorkelling and a fabulous lunch accompanied by wine and beer. Only 5 of us on that cruise that morning which was lovely. Cannot recommend this tour enough. Wonderful finish to our holiday. Thanks Yiannis!

Yiannis is a great host and a better sailor. Four of us had a fantastic time on our sunset cruise, which is just about fully customizable. There are bigger boats and more polished websites for cruises in the caldera, but you’ll have a great time with Barca.

We booked this as a birthday treat for my husband & was so glad we chose this one!! The boat was beautiful plenty of room to sunbath or shade if wanted! We saw the other group tours boarding their boats in bigger groups, so glad we paid a little extra for a private tour!! The places we stopped off at were beautiful & captain Giannis & Isidoro were brilliant hosts! They really knew their history of the beautiful island they really made the trip a memorable one for us! The spread of food was out of this world!! Truly restaurant quality! Fresh prawns, muscles, pasta, rice, Greek salad, cheese potatoes to make but a few!! Really wasn’t expecting such a feast! And to finish the tour we had the most amazing sunset pics to follow :) This tour really made our holiday it was truly a spectacular trip thank you so much! Highly recommended!! Five stars from the Wilkinson’s Thank you for making our holiday x

The trip was a unique experience! Isidoros the Captain and Zoi were great and full of joy! Zoi's knowledge and tips about the island and captain's sailing experience made the trip even better! The food was delicious, snorkeling around volcano was unique and sunset was unbelievable! We would definitely choose Barca Sailing again in the future!

This was such an unforgettable experience. We were a small group of people and the husband and wife ran sailed the yacht. They went above and beyond to ensure that our money was well spent and also briefed us on the history of the island during the sail. The food and atmosphere were amazing, you truly felt like you were a millionaire sailing the cyclades. I would highly recommend to anyone seeking a break from the world.
