Owner description: Captain George was raised and educated in Australia and has over 30 years experience in skippering sea craft around the Greek Islands and is the creator of the sunset cruise in its present form! His passion for the sea and tradition has lead him to restore one of the most important boats that was used for transportation of people and goods between the islands and the mainland for centuries. It all started back in the early 90’s when he started BBQ cruises on Santorini and various islands in the Aegean – reminiscent of the Australian weekends of his youth. The boat is the S/Y Eleftheria, a 55-foot wooden built traditional Greek Kaiki -Trechandiri or working boat, which nowadays are open museums and carry memories of a world that is fading right in front of us. We also cater for VIP tours, private charters, sunset cruise and individual itineraries, BBQ trips and full day tours around Santorini and the surrounding Islands.

What better way to get the full Greek experience than aboard a traditional boat, bobbing on turquoise waters. George looked after us so well and made sure we went to the choicest places. It felt like a trip tailor-made just for us and our needs. Thanks and see you next year

Hi George and Dimitri, my daughter and I had a fabulous trip with you during our stay in Santonrini. The food was fantastic, the conversation great and of course the wine flowed. Would recommend anyone visiting Greece and Santorini take time out to do this trip with you.

“A truly unique experience....”
Reviewed 26 May 2009

We had an amazing trip around Santorini in July 2008 -thanks to Captain George and his crew. This is a fantastic boat trip. You really feel like you are on a private yacht, unlike most of the other day trips on larger packed vessels. Relaxed, fun, great food and wine, warm hospitality - everthing that is good about Greece. A unique and unforgettable trip!!

“Great day, great crew , lots of fun , waiting for next Summer to do it again”
Reviewed 12 May 2009

This is the most carefree cruise I have been on. Fantastic crew ( Hi Capt. George !!) . It's a no BS - trip around the Caldera , to places and beaches that you can't reach by foot. We were there in August 2006 and saw one of the best Sunsets. Later on , the hugest August Moon EVER !!! We've already made reservations for this August and you're gonna see us LIVE via Internet diving in the the Deep Blue of Santorini ( there's a Web Cam on board !! ) . Santorini here we come !!!
