Fantastic cruise with a dream team captain and first mate

I booked the cruise for a group of 6 (active 50-60 year old couples) and we absolutely loved it! The boat had a great set-up and was immaculate. This size boat got us closer to the hot springs for our dip in the sea, which was fun. The views were gorgeous! The meal was fresh and delicious! Elaina and the captain were very friendly and customer service oriented! The whole experience exceeded our expectations!

A Dreamlike Boat Trip with a Fairy-Tale Ending

From the moment we set sail, George and Alina ensured that our boat trip was nothing short of spectacular. Their hospitality was heartwarming, and they were impeccably attentive throughout our journey, ensuring that every detail was perfect. The food served was a delightful spread of fresh fish, mouthwatering aubergine salad, tangy feta salad, and soft pita bread. Paired with excellent wine and set against the backdrop of awe-inspiring views, every meal felt like a gourmet experience. George and Alina seamlessly took us to multiple swimming spots, each with its unique charm and breathtaking volcanic views. Their knowledge of the area and their sincere desire to make our trip memorable was evident in every gesture. But the crowning glory of our trip was the magical moment when, against the canvas of the famed Santorini sunset, I experienced the most romantic engagement. Words fail to capture the enchantment of that moment. George and Alina's touch of warmth and kindness made it even more special, turning our engagement into a fairy-tale memory. To say that this boat trip was amazing would be an understatement. Thanks to George and Alina, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I cannot imagine a more perfect setting for our engagement. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Tom&Anna

My mom and I did a private 4 hour sunset tour and even the sun did not cooperate, it was still amazing! The crew were very sweet and the food was amazing. I would definitely book again. , Wonderful experience!

Best day of our visit to Santorini

George and Elaina were the dream team on this cruise. I booked the boat for a total of 6 people and from the moment we stepped out of the van onto the docks the customer service was impeccable! We had gorgeous views, plenty of time to swim and explore. The 5 hours flew by. We ended our day with one of the best meals we had on the island and a gorgeous sunset! It was like being with family. I cannot praise them enough. We will be back and do it all over again….. such a fabulous beautiful day!!!! , A great experience!, Excellent!, A great experience!, A must do!
