    The sunset cruise on 9/29/22 was awesome! The Skippers of the boat were Kristos and Maria Angeline, they were delightful! Their hospitality, knowledge and conversation were very enjoyable. My favorite parts were jumping off the boat to swim, the delicious food, fun guests plus the opportunity to Skipper the boat!

    What an incredible experience! Once the crew hoisted the sails of the single hull boat it was a magical ride that we will never forget. The crew of Christos and Mag (?) we’re outstanding, the food was superb and having just 10 passengers made it even more special. I highly recommend this tour!

    Super experience with two guys super nice with all the people in the boat! We learn from the captain and with the sail open we had a super sailing with a inique sunset on our back. We recommend you to book a sunset cruise with Sailing Boat if you want a unique and few people experience!

    Wonderful trip. Knowledgeable staff who knew the history as well as the best angle for photos. Most beautiful sunset we have ever seen, it really is worth all the hype. Fresh meal prepared aboard the boat. Small intimate group.

    Best small group sunset tour you can do. Captains Yianni and Yiorgios were very hospitable and the meal they supplied was sublime . You get collected from your hotel and returned In aircon bus . The boat is very clean and comfortable with toilets and drinks inclusive. Yiorgos gives you a descriptive narrative about the island and may even allow you to skipper the boat Greetings from Australia Lads and thanks for a great day Yianni and Maria

    We booked through our hotel manager & she promised us a sunset cruise. The cruise was so much more than that, we learnt some history & got to visit places that are very difficult to get to on land. The food was amazing & all prepared on board!! The experience as a whole was one in a lifetime and we would highly recommend!!! The sunset of course was uninterrupted & breathtaking!!

    The boat crew was wonderful, very pleasant and also informative about landmarks and history. The food prepared was plentiful and delicious. We had a wonderful time and it was a perfect way to end the day.

    Booked the cruise on the fly as we were arriving in Santorini. Not knowing what to expect, it was great to see how easy it was to find the marina and how punctual Barca sailing is. We had a wonderful captain in George who described beautifully the island’s geologic, mythical and social history during the tour, while keeping watch on our engagement and comfort. The stops to swim or simply observe the many facets of the island were incredible, and the beautiful sunset marking our return capped off a wonderful afternoon. On top of that, they prepared a feast for dinner! And even had the thoughtfulness to wish a passenger happy birthday with a cake. One of the best experiences in Santorini and one I would highly recommend.

    George allowed my dad to sail/steer the boat which we all enjoyed. If you have a request they will take you. Plenty of Opportunities to snorkel (although they only have goggles but no snorkels). Bring your own towel and sunscreen. They serve wine, beer, soda (not diet) and a meal. Our sunset tour got back around 9pm. There were 10 guests aboard plus the two guides and we all fit comfortably

    What an incredible and memorable day on the Caldera in Santorini. Our day started by being picked up in Oia. We were brought to the port by the Barca Sailing transfer service after picking up one other couple. We met up with Captain George and Maria-Angela for a day of sailing. To say this day was perfection is an understatement. Their hospitality and joy of sailing made for the perfect day on the water. We stopped at the Red Beach for the first swim of the day. Then followed by another swim by the volcano island and a home cooked traditional Greek dinner. We finished our sail with an iconic view of the Santorini sunset. While sipping on Greek white wine, Maria-Angela put some Greek music on and taught us the Hasapiko Greek dance. Truly a “Mama Mia” experience
