Santorini is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Greece. Located in the Aegean Sea, it is known for its stunning scenery, its whitewashed buildings and its blue-domed churches. There are many things to do in Santorini, from exploring the ruins of ancient civilizations to enjoying the island's black sand beaches. However, one of the best ways to see Santorini is from the water. Book your boat hire in Santorini with Scansail to see all that this island has to offer.
Santorini is world-renowned for its stunning coastline and there are few better places to sail than around these dramatic volcanic shores. Here are some of the best things to see and do when sailing around Santorini:
The price of a yacht rental in Santorini depends on the type of yacht you desire, the season and duration of your charter, the number of passengers onboard and any additional services that you may require. You can use the internal messaging service on the Scansail website to contact boat owners about any extras, including water sports equipment.
You will also have the possibility of having a skipper onboard your boat hire in Santorini. The experienced sailor will be here to guide you to all of the best spots in the region and ensure that you have a holiday of a lifetime. It is also possible to opt for a private cruise without a captain on the condition that you have a valid boat license.
If you desire a more exclusive service, we highly recommend a luxury yacht charter in Santorini. These boat hires come with a highly trained crew who will be here to provide a top-of-the-range service during your trip and will take care of daily activities including cleaning and dining. They will also be able to show you the best spots around the island of Santorini, as well as in the surrounding region. At Scansail, we have a wide range of vessels to choose from, including luxury catamarans. The crew is employed by the boat owner and the cost is included in the total.
With Scansail, you can also pay an APA (advanced provisioning allowance). In addition to the boat rental fee, the APA is a fee which is paid in advance and covers all of the costs of provision for your charter. Whether you are travelling with lots of people or just a small group, we can guarantee that you will have the holiday of a lifetime.
There are plenty of different harbours and marinas for your yacht rental in Santorini and the neighbouring region. These marinas are ideal for mooring your vessel as they have excellent facilities and are within close proximity to attractions. Our favourites include:
Santorini’s perfect location in the South Aegean Sea means that visitors can enjoy the sunshine and warm temperatures at most times of the year. However, in the winter, the island is prone to more winds, meaning that the sailing conditions will not be the best. Ideally, we would recommend for you to hire a yacht in June, September and October. During these months, you will be able to swim in the sea and relax on the pristine beaches, but without the crowds.
