Whether you're seeking a romantic escape, a family adventure, or a fun-filled holiday with friends, a boat rental in Santorini promises unforgettable moments and endless discoveries.

Sailing around Santorini is a delight for both seasoned sailors and novices alike. The calm waters of the Aegean Sea, gentle winds, and well-marked routes make it a safe and enjoyable destination for sailing enthusiasts. Explore the nearby islands, such as Thirassia and Nea Kameni, or sail towards the charming Cyclades archipelago for a more extended adventure. Whether you anchor in picturesque bays or dock at vibrant harbours, each day on a Santorini boat charter brings new wonders and abundant natural beauty.

How much are the mooring fees in Santorini?

Mooring fees in Santorini can vary depending on the port or marina you choose. The charges are usually based on the boat's size and the duration of your stay. On average, mooring fees range from €x to €y per night, but it's best to check with the specific port or marina for accurate pricing.

Rent a boat in Santorini with or without a skipper.

Whether to choose a yacht charter in Santorini with or without a skipper depends on your sailing experience, comfort level with navigation, and desire for convenience. Opting for a Santorini boat rental with a skipper can be an excellent choice for those new to sailing or seeking a stress-free experience. Skippers are experts in the local waters, well-versed in currents, weather patterns, and the best sailing routes around Santorini. Their presence ensures a safe and worry-free sailing journey, allowing you to relax and fully immerse yourself in the island's beauty.

Moreover, having a skipper on board means you gain access to an insider's perspective. Skippers know the hidden gems and best spots around Santorini, taking you to secluded beaches and picturesque coves you might have missed. They enhance your exploration, making your sailing adventure more fulfilling and memorable.

On the other hand, renting without a skipper is a great option for experienced sailors who possess a valid sailing license or can prove sufficient sailing expertise. This choice grants you complete autonomy over your sailing journey, enabling you to chart your course and explore Santorini at your preferred pace. It's a liberating experience, allowing you to tailor your itinerary and maximise your time on the water.
