5 stars isn't enough

5 stars isn't enough for our experience with Captain Thakis and Skipper Nasia on the Ocean King!!! We booked a private 5 hour day cruise and couldn't be happier. They have been sailing the Ocean King for 3 summers together and you can tell by their relaxed and amusing banter. They know what they're doing and make it look easy and are clearly enjoying their lives. Their professionalism came through time and time again. They are both very respectful and knowledgeable about their craft and the island. The views of the island are stunning! The music was relaxed and upbeat. Captain Thakis has an amazing playlist. And the food...oh the food...was absolutely gourmet quality! We actually joked that if Nasia got bored of sailing she could open her own restaurant since it was one of the best meals we had while visiting Santorini!

Sunset sail

Absolutely a great experience, the boat was beat and the crew amazing. While on our sail they told us about parts of the island and the history. They’re showed us special places to stop and enjoy and provided an excellent meal. It was so nice only 4 people in our party and made it unique. Highly recommend this experience , A great experience!
