We deliberated about the type of boat trip to do - old fashioned wooden boat, catamaran or this and boy are we glad we picked this one.
The transfer picked us up from our hotel on time and took us to the harbour after picking up another couple of passengers from a Winery. We had to wait for them so the other 5 passengers on the boat had been waiting for us - sorry guys. From the moment we set sail the trip couldn't have been better. The sun was shining, the two man crew were a delight - helpful and witty and the boat was great. We were offered white wine, beer or soft drinks and then we were off. The Captain pointed out the red cliffs, the white cliffs and then we anchored so we could have a swim. It was fabulous. Towels were provided as were snorkels and face masks if we wanted them.
Once on board again, the sails were raised and I have to say the boat just took off. I have never been in a yacht before and I got a little anxious - especially when there was a crash and all the crockery came flying out of one of the cupboards down below! But all was well and I figured the Captain knew what he was doing. We sailed along the Caldera and then moored in a quiet place where we could swim again if we wanted to, or just sunbathe while the most delicious food was cooked for us. Then the 9 of us sat and ate and drank in the hot sun, chatting and laughing. Honestly it was lovely.
After that we were off again to the hot springs where we were offered the chance to swim in the hot springs. More luke warm springs if I'm honest but I'm glad I did it. I'd have regretted it if I hadn't. As the sun set the crew took photo's of us and then we sailed back to the harbour with music in the background.
Honestly, if you get the chance to do this - DO NOT THINK TWICE, just DO IT!!!! You will not regret it.
Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

After so many excellent reviews, I thought it will be difficult for the crew to meet our expectations. But in fact they've exceeded it. We spent unforgetable time on the yacht. Captain Yianis and Thakis are very good people, they treated all the guests as a good friends with all respect. The dinner was very good - various and delicious. Some guests even asked the recipe of the dishes.
My 10 years old son told that it was the best day in his life (and he have been in many other places before, including Disney, Universal and etc.) So it is really unique and memorable experience.
I wish all the best to Yianis and Thakis and hope to meet these good people once again.

This was the highlight of our holiday in Santorini. Beautiful sail boat, the crew Yiannis and Thakis great company and very knowledgeable. Fabulous BBQ lunch and plenty of swim time. Well worth the money, loved every minute.

It is my first experience of sailing most cruise follow same route but barca staff made it good one and captain yiannis is good and friendly. Unfortunately we did not saw sunset because of clouds but they try there best. Food was Delicious and yummy. Kids love spaghetti and salads.
