We offer our guests the advantage to pay a flat rate prior to setting sail, and that’s it!
After surfing the web and looking at different options for your sailing vacation, you might have noticed most yacht rental are structured similarly with renting a car. The charter rate covers the price for hiring the yacht itself (just like the car rental price covers the car itself).
And all the other aspects/costs involved are on you to cover as you go. For a car that would be things like gas, toll rates. With similar structure, when you are budgeting for your sailing holidays, you will have add on top of the charter rate, the other expenses involved as they appear. The trouble with this approach is that for a yacht the total/ final price the extras add up to varies several factors. Which makes it difficult for the traveler to figure out the total price he will end up paying (an aspect that will naturally might make him worried or anxious).
For example while the rate applied for skipper services is pretty much standard for all companies (190-240 euro/day), all the others extra can range according to many factors. How much fuel you are going to use depends on how long the engine will be running - more specifically on the distance to your favorite destination and weather condition. "But won't we be sailing most of the time-why are we discussing fuel?' you might be wondering. Please read below the paragraph marked with **
So we are taking a different approach. In order to avoid the hassle of having an expense account open , we have grouped everything in the : "All costs included" combo of 330 euro/day to include the expenses associated with chartering the sailing yacht (skipper, fuel, final cleaning, etc) that will guarantee worry free vacations. You won't have to keep an expense account open. You simply pay a one-time flat rate - divided in between the members in your group prior to setting sail, and that’s it! Much easier to plan and budget for! No hidden costs, no surprise at the end of the trip.
** How much will we be sailing /motoring? Well...it all depends on the wind conditions and the distance to the next destination. So let's take for example a sail from Mykonos to the port of Paroikia in Paros that is 28 nautical miles apart (a good average).
Depending on each situation, a one-way fee applies in order to cover the cost of the boat travelling from the base/regular embarkation point to the pick up point of your choice (fuel + rate for the day/s when it cannot be chartered as it will be traveling to the island you prefer to embark at).
Thus the one way fee depends on the distance to the destination chosen and can vary from 800 euro to 1450 euro.

The most amazing week onboard Albatross with Radu and Adriana exploring some of the Cyclades and Saronic Islands. From the very first contact the emails were so extremely detailed and informative we knew right away we found the right crew - miles ahead of the others we contacted. Perfectly 5-star spot on Adriana! Stepping onboard the Albatross we felt very welcome and at home from the start. Out at sea there was not a single moment we did not feel perfectly safe. Radu, your calm command of the vessel and safety above all approach is truly admirable. How well you work together as a team is an inspiration and was so reassuring. Thanks for all the information and suggestions - this made our time off the boat exploring so much easier. Overall, you exceeded all expectations - we could not have asked for a more relaxing and enjoyable week! Wonderful memories we will cherish always! Can’t wait to return next year and explore more islands with you.

Fantastic journey through the Cyclades
This vacation was a longtime bucket list item and over 1 year in the actual planning. We had a fantastic 2 weeks visiting numerous islands in the Cyclades with our 2 sons and their wives. We have our own sailboat at home but the harbor system and mooring is very different from how it is done in Canada. Adriana and Radu handle their boat with skill and confidence; we could just sit back, relax and try to learn how it is done! Their local knowledge is indispensible for knowing which harbors were best to visit based on the daily weather and wind, and where to find the little bays and inlets for swimming. As we arrived at each destination, Adriana would pull out books and maps from her collection and give us tips for the best things to see and do. There are always options, and Adriana listened to every word, then did her best to accommodate our wishes.
The sailboat is well setup, excellently maintained, and was very comfortable for the 6 of us. We were able to use the extra cabin to store some of our stuff; this is a sailboat and you do need to heed Adriana's advice to pack lightly! Supplies were readily available at all the harbors so we periodically restocked for breakfast and lunch items. We found it easier and very affordable to eat dinner at the local tavernas, and Adriana and Radu always had suggestions for those as well. We spent one beautiful night at anchor in Kleftiko Bay (Milos) and grilled fish we had bought that morning from the local fishing boat on the same pier where we had moored. Certainly, could have done that a few more times :)
Apart from our own food, boat friendly shoes and beach/swim towels, everything else is on the boat. Once we had picked out appropriate sizes of snorkel gear, it was set aside. The galley was well equipped and has a large fridge (kept our ice frozen for a whole week!). Radu and Adriana use the forward V-berth (as you can see on the diagram on their website) and were extremely conscientious about not interfering with our own activities (e.g. they would wait for us to be done or off the boat before making their own breakfast). We were very happy that they did accept to join us for dinner towards the end of the trip (it was my birthday :)) as we had quickly considered them to be friends.
They were always thinking of how they could make our trip even more enjoyable than it already was! For example, we had opted to spend a bit of extra time on Tinos and not stop at Delos based on weather. But as we got close to Delos, the strong winds forecasted had not developed, so that option was reconsidered and we did stop and visit this amazing archeological site. Anchoring and preparing the dinghy takes a bit of time and extra work, but they never once minded going the extra (nautical) mile!
One thing to keep in mind is that most of the islands are best toured with a rental car. We had not considered that in advance although someone else mentions it in another review here. Radu would accompany us to the rental office (always near the harbor) and ensure we were properly looked after. The rates were quite reasonable and the smallest vehicles are adequate. Our trip was in early May and the weather was perfect. We packed a lot into our two weeks; towards the end we forced ourselves to slow the pace a little so we could just sit back and relax a bit on the boat (which you can do while sailing between islands although not so much when the wind picks up).
Definitely would do this again with Adriana and Captain Sparrow (Radu) on the good ship Albatross!

Can't Wait For a 3rd Trip
This was our second trip with Blue Water Sailing charter put of Athens. A year and a half ago we took a one week trip with them. This time we chose do cruise with them two weeks. I wish we had done a three week cruise. The boat is comfortable. We each had our own stateroom. There are four on the vessel for customers. Two bathrooms, a very functional kitchen and a nice salon area. The crew is extremely knowledgeable about each island they took us too. Explaining all our options once we arrived. The price was extremely seasonal. If you are thinking about a Greek Island vacation you should totally check this charter out.

OMG....... could not have been better
Radu and Adrianna will provide you with a sailing experience of a lifetime. We were two couples for 5 days. Beautiful boat. Plenty of room. Unsurpassed hospitality from the hosts. After we sailed the Saronic gulf for 5 days, we spent another week on other islands.....but the sailing was by far the best part of our trip. You really want to meet and sail with these people. They are fantastic.

Unbelievable tour of the Greek Saronic islands
This was a trip of a lifetime. There was nothing that could be improved upon. Adrianna and Radu (skippers) were informative, flexible and accommodating. We felt very safe in their care. They tailored the trip to our preferences and in accordance with the weather. They provided very helpful advice regarding sites to see on each island as well as where to shop and eat. This was an unforgettable vacation and I would highly recommend travelling with Blue Water Sailing.

Hidden Secrets of Greece
I’m sure there are a lot of ways to see Greece and many sailing options but the best way is sailing with Blue Water Sailing Greece. Radu and Adriana made our trip so special, it was like having our own tour guides that were specialists of each place/island we visited. We so looked forward to the briefing of each place when we docked in the marinas. We actually had to start recording the briefing due to the fact they were so informative and we didn’t want to miss anything. There were 8 of us on the trip and no one could have imagined what we experienced.

You are the Best!
Adriana and Radu made us feel part of their family our our family holiday this September. Radu's sailing is wonderful to watch and I reckon he can take their boat anywhere. Nothing was too hard for them as they took us to the swimming and snorkeling wonderland around the Cyclades and Saronic islands. The Albatross has first class accommodation and it's obvious they care for their boat greatly. Can't wait till we have the chance to go with them again to even more islands. Harvey and family from Australia.
