George Danezis, the Captain of the “Off The Hook Sailing Cruises”, is a professional captain who was raised near the seaside by a fisher family in Santorini for decades and decided to trade his life for waves.

His family and he are still running local hospitality businesses in Kamari, Santorini as the native inhabitants of the island. He now wants to take you along a joy ride around the Greek islands… with a twist.

Combining years of cruising experience and his passion for what he calls the “true Greek life and summer”, he created Off the Hook Sailing Cruises, as some alternative semi-private and private cruising tours, so that you can enjoy the summer, exactly like our Captain does.

As well as the captain George, the crew is also fully knowledgeable of the waters around Santorini and the Aegean Sea and well trained to surpass customers’ expectations.


Located in the heart of the vast Aegean sea, Santorini boasts a unique landscape!

The famous Santorini Caldera, amazing red and black volcanic beaches, and, of course, volcano’s crater in Nea Kameni, all remind the origins of the island, which was shaped by volcanic eruptions. 

Cruising around Santorini  is incomparable!
