Private cruise is a great opportunity to sail and explore Santorini without hassle and responsibility, but with all the fun.
You will be sailing the islands aboard a 18m racing trimaran Akron Aoton, Orma60, accommodating up to 10 guests in a spacious net area with cushions or on the couch. Toilet and one cabin is available inside the yacht. Whether relaxing or sunbathing on deck after a peaceful swim in a remote bay, your comfort and enjoyment is assured.
Beginner and novice sailors will also benefit from the opportunity to learn first hand about sailing through instruction from the skipper and onboard sailing crew. The skipper, in addition to being responsible for the safe and enjoyable sailing of the yacht, is also acting as personal guide and caretaker for the guests.
You can follow our usual program or create your own exploration route according the wind direction after discussion with the captain.
Complimentary locally brewed beer, wine and soft drinks are available all day. Sailing is invigorating and exhilarating- whether you’re helping the crew hoist the sails, or shouting encouragement between sips of a cool drink. Take the helm – for a photo op or the real deal! Our crew is eager to teach you all about the ship, the islands and their people.
What to bring: a carry on bag with bathing suit and everything that you will need on the first afternoon (sunscreen, hat, medicines, cameras) along with something warm to wear after sunset, as it might be a little bit chilly. If you think you might be affected by motion sickness bring a wrist band or an ear patch to ease the symptoms.
