Went on the Sunset Cruise with our friends and were picked up in Imerovigli at 2:50pm. Picked up another 3 sets of unconnected couples and very quickly felt liked we known each other for years. Guess the wine and beer helped but Mike, Chris & Fay, the crew, were fantastic hosts and very friendly. Great BBQ on board, too.

Number of opportunities to get out for a swim and, if you were thus inclined, a swim in the hot sulphur springs (talk of it staining your swimwear put me off!)

Watching the sun set from the Catamaran was great, and made a nice change from watching from land.

All 10 of us felt this trip was the best experience of our time in Santorini.

Thank MikeLeicester

There were five of us on a private sail on the Angelica sailboat captained by Manolis and assisted by Margarita. Both were so friendly and made the experience fun for us. It was obvious that they loved what they did. It was an amazing experience! We did a sunset sail around Santorini with a swim in the volcanic hot spring (wear a dark colored bathing suit as the red sediment from the spring will stain)... Then we had a delicious kabob and grilled pork dinner with salads, pita, and eggplant dip. I usually expect the food on these types of excursions to be second rate to the sailing experience, but the food was surprisingly really really good! This was a splurge for us and we were so glad we did it. It was a highlight of our trip!

We were just two of a wedding party, that were lucky enough to have a cruise aboard the 44 foot catamaran "Carpe Diem", absolutely beautiful. Our party was I believe 17 people all from Canada. Boats are not new to us, but this was definitely different. We got to swim in the warm waters of the med. We had a simple but truly delicious meal barbecued for us by the captain and were treated very well by his crew of two. Certainly to me a highlight of the wedding celebration, would love to do it again!

Being a travel + comercial photographer took me everywhere all around Greece, and the choise to be here in Santorini to place my office is a coise I will never regret !
Once again the sunlight was perfect, and with a chinese couple from Shanghai things were very romantic!
Always under the sound of traditional musicians from Santorini singing folk songs about love and weddings!

Fantastic cruise around Santorini island, while having the opportunity to see waters, volcano, secret beaches and of course the lovely Greek sunset! The overall ambiance of the journey was fantastic with lots of time to enjoy the sun, Greek waters and food. I had the chance to meet both captains Manolis and Michalis and they are great, passioned and quite experienced in leading such cruises! Nice and warm atmosphere during my stay and also had the chance to swim as well! Such beautiful memories from this! I fully recommend Santorini Sailing Center to anyone interested in such unforgettable experiences!
