Great day on the water

Great great day on the water. There were only 10 of us on the ship. There were only 3 staff and they treated us fantastically. Made sure we always had drinks . Very comfortable on the boat. Lots of room. They prepared for us a fantastic meal with fresh fish., bbq chicken , salads and other foods. We stopped at a couple of stops to swim. Loved the water. Great views while we were boating. Staff gave some information about the island . And surrounding islands. Can’t say enough about the wonderful day we had on the water. We were also picked up from our Airbnb by a fantastic driver Nini. What a driver. I say this because he was very courteous and he had to drive backwards at one point and wow he is good You can’t go wrong with booking with this company

Santorini catamaran cruise

Wonderful tour with Captain Mike, Jose and Firas (hopefully we got the names correct!) Interesting information about the island, it's history and geography. Not to mention wonderful food and bottomless beverages. Highly recommend.

Amazing crew, amazing trip

Not enough words to describe this, amazing trip, beautiful views, great food very clean and well maintained boat but the highlight had to be the crew, thank you to Cpt Mike, and a huge thank you to Denis and Fotini, you made the experience for us, showing great care for my wife Susana when she felt sick, always patient, always with a smile, interacting (we prefer it) with us and providing great description of the sights, would have not been the same without such care. Thank you from Alex and Susana.

Wonderful sailing cruise! The highlight of our trip to Santorini!

What a wonderful sailing cruise that we had with the Renieris Santorini Sailing Center! We were a group of two couples and we reserved the semi private sailing cruise, and our crew - Captain Michalis, George and Mario, was outstanding. The sailboat/catamaran was spacious and very comfortable. There was plenty of space to stay in the shades. This was an issue that concerned us as we read some negative reviews regarding lack of shades in other cruises companies. The day was beautiful! The whole crew was so professional and accommodating to our needs. The lunch was superb! We started with some delicious appetizers: grilled octopus, eggplant salad, cheese, pita bread, and more! They served a delicious fresh salad. For the main course, some of us had the juicy chicken skewer and one of us had the grilled fresh seabream. Everything was grilled on board and cooked to perfection! This was one of the best meals that we had in Santorini! As we approached the beaches, bay and sightseeing, Mario explained them to us. George was always asking us if we needed something or if we wanted something to drink. One of the guys in our party asked George to bring him a beer in 15 minutes and George set his watch and brought him the beer in 15 minutes! An example of the outstanding service that Michalis, George and Mario offered us.

The BEST way to spend sunset in Santorini!

10/10 Experience! 
Fortnini, George, and Captain Mike gave us an incredible trip! Everything was thought of and taken care of from transportation to the menu. We never had to ask for more drinks because they kept put glasses full. It was such a beautiful and fun experience. Also our group discussed how the food was the BEST we had the entire week in Greece. We are thankful for the perfect trip and the wonderful people who made it possible!

Amazing must do cruise!

What a fabulous experience! We took a caldwra luxury sunset cruise on the Kallisti catamaran. Captain Mike and his assistant George were fabulous hosts. They were warm and friendly, very informative and attentive to our needs. The scenery was jaw-dropping. You get to see views of the island you cannot see from land. We made a couple of stops at the red beach abd the white beach, then stopped for dinner in a quiet little cove. One of us was brave enough to swim in the sulfuric waters, but being April, the water was a bit cold for others like me. I imagine in the summer I would have jumped in the water at every stop. Dinner was an amazing grilled fish with a Greek salad, eggplant dip, tzatziki, and grilled bread and pitas. Plenty of beverages to drink (Santorini white wine was delicious). Then we set sail back onto a beautiful sunset. Dessert of Greek yogurt with cherry and fruit syrup was served before we arrived. What great memories were made! I highly recommend this cruise. It is Wirth every penny. Thanks in particular to George, who patiently answered all our questions and had a great personality and sense of humor.

Beyond expectations!

Amazing experience touring Santorini by boat. George (Giorgos) was fantastic and gave really great information about the locations we visited. He was very professional and friendly. We got to see lots of fish snorkelling in a beautiful spot as recommended by George. The lunch cooked by both George and Michael (captain) was beyond expectations and delicious. We felt very safe on board and would highly recommend. Perfect day!

The crew was fantastic

The crew was fantastic, very attentive, safety oriented, really great wine! The locations were well chosen, our particular day the water was freezing, but they provided towels and blankets, unfortunately it was also a very cloudy day, so Did not see the sunset, but the itinerary on a beautiful day, would be top-notch, wouldn’t change a thing, this was an outstanding tour. And oh my gosh, that food, way more than expected for a group excursion, this was a multi course dinner, rival some of the best restaurants we’ve had on the island!

My sailing adventure

My sailing adventure was nothing short of exceptional! From start to finish, every moment was filled with awe and wonder. First off, the crew was incredibly professional and friendly, making us feel welcome and safe from the moment we stepped on board. Their expertise and passion for sailing were evident, and they went above and beyond to ensure that every guest had an unforgettable experience. The breathtaking beauty of Santorini from the deck of the sailboat was truly unparalleled. We had the opportunity to explore hidden coves, pristine beaches, and iconic landmarks while soaking in the mesmerizing views of the caldera and the Aegean Sea. The attention to detail in every aspect of the journey was remarkable. From the delicious food and refreshing drinks served on board to the comfortable seating areas where we could relax and take in the scenery, every little touch added to the overall enjoyment of the trip. One of the highlights for me was the chance to swim and snorkel in the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean. It felt like stepping into a postcard-worthy paradise, surrounded by colorful marine life and stunning underwater rock formations. Overall, my experience with Santorini Sailing Center exceeded all expectations. It was a perfect blend of adventure, relaxation, and luxury, and I can't wait to come back for another unforgettable journey on the seas of Santorini! Thank you to the entire team for creating memories that will last a lifetime.
