What to expect
  • Make your own way to Vlychada Marina and jump aboard to begin your morning caldera sailing cruise.

Dive into the warm waters of the Aegean Sea and make the most of the boat’s snorkeling equipment to spot colorful fish and corals around the shore. Back on board, keep your camera to hand as you glide along White Beach and pass landmarks like Akrotiri Lighthouse and the black rock of Mavro Vouno, nicknamed ‘The Indian’. Marvel at the ever-more dramatic scenery as you sail around the underwater caldera, stopping to stroll the black sand beaches and explore the volcanic islands of Palea and Nea Kameni. Take time to soak in the volcanic hot springs and relax in the mineral-rich waters before climbing back aboard your ship. Re-fuel with a delicious BBQ lunch, including fresh seafood and Greek wine, as you lounge on deck and sail past Aspronisi island. Finally, make a last stop at Mesa Pigadia beach for another swim or snorkel, before ending your tour back in Vlychada.

Highlight of our Trip!
We had an absolutely fantastic morning sailing with Yiannis and George. The boat is beautiful, the food was great and we really appreciated the great commentary and information provided along the way. We were celebrating a birthday and they went out of their way to make it extra special by providing a birthday cake and joining in on the celebration. It was the highlight of our trip to Santorini.

Fantastic sailing day
Aug. 2021 • Couples
We had a fantastic time with Barca Sailing. Captain Yiannis and mate Jorgos were amazing hosts, playing music, pouring drinks and cooking us a fabulous lunch. They also told us lots about the island and even offered us a chance to sail the boat!

The day started out with a transfer from our hotel in Perissa straight to Vlychada to start the cruise, which was included with the price we paid on Viator. There were only 7 guests in total on our boat, which meant a super friendly atmosphere and plenty of room for everyone to spread out. We had a few breaks for swimming and managed to avoid a lot of the larger catamarans for the most part that we’re all departing and returning all at once.

My husband and I did 2 Catamaran trips last year in Santorini, which thankfully were only half full due to Covid restrictions. This year, I noticed that all of the catamarans were packed! So I’m so happy that we picked Barca sailing as an alternative, to have a small friendly group, fantastic service and plenty of room on board, not to mention the amazing views from within the caldera and actually getting to switch off the engines and sail towards the volcano.

Simply awesome experience!
Jul. 2021
We had a private charter for 7 (2 adults and 5 teenagers). We were highly spoilt - the scenery, the weather, the water, the meal on board and most of all our lovely warm crew (Gregory and George). They made us feel genuinely welcome with a lot of charm and humour. We couldn't recommend them enough. Please go.

Great experience!! Hope to do it again :)
We had a half day cruise in the morning on June 11th and its was excellent!! Super friendly staff, nice boat and there was only 4 people which was great. We heard some historical information on the island geology/ geography and visited some great spots for swimming. We had also a great lunch on board. It could hardly had been a better day! Definitely recommend Barca's sailing and captain Yiannis and hope to return for a sunset trip ;)

Amazing day sail !!
Jun. 2021 • Friends
The landscape of Santorini is amazing but Yiannis who is the Captain just makes the trip unforgettable! 5h of pure joy, laughing tears and a delicious meal made this adventure to something very unique on the island!
Hope to see you again and thank you very much!

Fabulous day
May 2020
What a wonderful way to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of the Santorini caldera! Unfortunately it was a still day yet it was so relaxing going with a small group. In May, though the air temp was perfect, the water was still cold. All eight of us took the plunge at both stops. It was my first time seeing rocks float; lava rocks that is. We'll take this tour again if we're fortunate enough to return to Santorini.

Highlight of our Greek trip!
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!
