Trip of a life time
Sep 2021
Captain Makis & his first mate Ilias ensured that we had an adventure of a life time!!! Captain Makis's local maritime knowledge and boating skills are the best. He knows the waters around Santorini like the back of his hand. Ilias explained a lot of the history and local knowledge that we would have otherwise totally missed. Elephant rocks was our favorite part of the tour.
.

We can't wait to return!!!

Trip advisor should add a 6th star for this experience.
Oct 2021
This trip is a must if you are in santorini . The guys are very respectful and knowledgeable . we were very lucky with the weather and we had an amazing trip. I would definitely recommend this to anyone coming to the area. they are flexible with the tour locations and will tailor it to your preference.
the greek cooking was amazing and we cooked the fish we caught on the day. It was definitely better than the one we had in the restaurant. and watched the sunset.
it was very relaxed with lots of entertainment and facts about the areas yet we were given our private time to relax. 11/10

Still hesitating after 235 excellent reviews? Well, here’s one more! Captain Makis & his first mate Ilias gave us an EXCELLENT time discovering Santorini’s caldera. With my boyfriend, we were looking for cool spots to snorkel around Oia and by going with them we had this and more. Add a tour with The Pirate to your bucket list and you can expect great hospitality, historical facts, as well as interesting stories about sunken ships & local people. And good food 😋 locally sourced, some made by Makis’s wife & fresh caught fish!

Amazing experience!
Oct 2021 • Couples
What a great experience! Captain Makis and first mate Eli did such a wonderful job showing our group a different side of Santorini. Only one of our party of five was interested in the fishing part of things so it was important to have a well-rounded trip and they absolutely provided that. Eli was very knowledgeable and shared some interesting facts about the topography and waters in & around the caldera. It was a great tour!

The waters were super choppy on the day we went out but no one in our group experienced any sea sickness. We did some snorkeling around two sunken ships in a sheltered cove. And to top things off, we caught two fish, a grouper and a Bonito, and they prepared them for a delicious dinner on the water along with local wine. Of course we had amazing views of the setting sunset as we pulled back into port.

Can’t recommend enough!

10/10 recommended - NEED TO DO
Absolutely wonderful experience, one of your favorite excursions we did during our trip. Makis and Elias went above and beyond during our private tour. Plus Makis’ wife’s cooking is out of this world. The tomato fritters, AMAZING. A must do for anyone looking to explore the island by boat, fish, learn about the sights, and eat authentic Greek food while being entertained the entire time. Definitely recommend!!

The Best Excursion in Santorini!
Sep 2021
We had a wonderful 1/2 day fishing and swimming trip with captain Makis and Ilias! They took us all around Santorini's islands showing us the unique landscapes, all the while keeping us laughing with their amazing stories! It was the perfect way to spend a lovely morning in Santorini capped off with an amazing lunch! We had a wonderful time and can't wait to go back and see them again!

Pirate fishing tour experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
That was a great experience for me and my girlfriend, many thanks to captain Makis and Ilias!
Captain knows how to get to unique and private places near Santorini islands, Ilias told a lot of interesting stuff about history and specifics of the places. Except a great fishing experience, we have got a chance to taste a very delicious food: a fresh tuna prepared by Makis and Ilias on the board and wonderful local Greek dishes prepared beforehand by Makis' wife from local products. We had an opportunity to swim in a small lagoon near one of the islands, the water was really warm and we were completely alone in the place. We have got a lot of impresions and would recommend this activity to everyone, who visits the island :)

One of the most amazing experiences of my life
Sep 2021
We finished our trip in Santorini with this tour and what a way it was to round our holiday off!

Amazing!

Ilias and Makis were amazing hosts and made us feel welcome and like close friends.

Makis is an expert sailor, fisherman, and cook (special mention to his wife too as her tomato fritters are amazing!), and Ilias was fantastic guide detailing the history of the sights as we sailed past and making sure we were comfortable.

They take you to areas that no other tours know about or go to creating a truly unique and special experience. Swimming in these areas is a very special treat.

To be able to swim in the clear waters of the bay and sea (they stop twice at different points for this) is an experience I will never forget. Diving with the shoals of fish is like something out of a nature documentary. There's also a shipwreck which makes for a cool dive too.

On my trip I caught a tuna and to be able to eat something I have caught myself is a pretty cool experience.

Makis and Ilias are amazing people and I really can't thank them enough for this experience.

Would recommend to anyone and everyone!

Aug 2021 • Couples
Makis & Ilias we’re absolutely incredible! They gave us so much history, showed us all around, answered many questions, and of course we caught awesome fish! They grilled the fish on board and Makis wife prepared other food for the meal, it was phenomenal. I really can’t say enough good things about these two, would recommend this trip to anyone. Worth every penny! You’ll learn so much!!
