The Carpe Diem team is the best! Margarita, Ioannis and Dmitry are very friendly, kept us entertained, fed us with great BBQ (not to forget the Margarita salad!) and of course, educated us with a bit of Santorini history and points of interest. On top of that, great music and not too forget... the Santorini sunset is beautiful!

Booked this through Sophia hotel reception. These guys are very professional and accomodating. They provide all your needs. Unlimited Beverage, delicious food, you just have to bring your own towel for the big catamaran cruise. They'd take you to the hot spring, red beach and white beach and you can snorkel away while waiting for the sun to set. Wonderful... More

We had a fantastic day aboard Carpe Diem, the weather was great, the sea flat calm and the food was fantastic. Recommend the fish and Greek salad. Everything cooked fresh on the boat. Great stops for swimming including the hot springs. A lovely day out with great crew too

We were on my mother's 60th Birthday Extravaganza trip with 10 family members. We ranged from 6 to 60 and this was definitely one of the BEST moments. It's not always easy to get so many people with so many interests to agree on anything but we can all agree that "Carpe Diem" exceeded all of our expectations. THE CREW:... More

We spent a morning sailing on the Carpe Diem, a family owned catamaran, sailing the Aegean. The catamaran is beautifully appointed and immaculately maintained. The three staff are professional, efficient, and very friendly. They ensured their guests were very well looked after and felt part of their family. Margarita is the most beautiful hostess. She prepares all food from scratch... More

Santorini Sailing is the pinnacle. I signed up with a few friends, excited for a day on the water. We were pleasantly surprised by so much more the moment we stepped onto the spacious catamaran. The Crew at Santorini Sailing was very welcoming and helpful. Every crew member had a good personality, and you really can tell they are just... More
