All our guests beneficiate of the "all costs included" bundle that includes ALL expenses associated with chartering a sailboat with captain (fuel, skipper, docking/marina fees, final cleaning, etc). You simply pay a one-time flat rate and that’s it! Much easier to plan and budget for your skippered boat charter! No hidden costs, no surprise or extra charge at the end of the trip.
And because actually two people are needed to sail and dock a yacht, both of us will be on board in order to take care of the tasks related to sailing/docking. This way our guest can lay back and relax without being interrupted when the skipper captain needs assistance.

The crew (captain and first mate)

A few words about us :

We are a small family-owned operated sailing boat charter company thus we can treat each guest individually and we like to see you more as a friend rather than a typical client. The two of us (Adriana and Radu) are the owners of the Albatross and also your captain and first mate for the week/s.

This means best price (no agency commission) and a personal experience. You speak directly with us, so we can answer any question regarding your sailing adventure in Greece so that you know exactly what you should expect from a skippered boat charter and more specifically any aspects that might interest you regarding life on board.


During your time on board, we're trying to be unobtrusive (so you feel totally at ease) but available when you need anything - just like we trust a skippered boat charter should be. Either it's a question, helping with planning your time on shore or anything else that might get you one step closer to your holiday of a lifetime.


Like one of our dear guests was mentioning "we'll make it so easy you won't have to spend hours combing through books wondering what the best sites to see are".

You can virtually "meet us" at your crew.

Look no farther, you've found the best way to see the Greek Islands!
Want to take an adventure that allows you to unpack your bag once and not have to worry about anything else for the next few weeks, then the Albatross is the sailboat you want. Adriana and Radu will make you feel at home the moment you step foot on the boat. My family has NEVER repeated vacations to any destinations UNTIL we sailed with the Albatross. The first time we sailed was 6/2015. Our kids were 10 and 8 at the time. We brought another couple with us for a total of 6 people on board. The berths on the boat were very comfortable and meticulously clean. The galley has a small fridge/freezer and there is a stove and oven should you want to cook. Plenty of storage space for all your food and snacks. You set sail right away and the adventure begins. Everyday was a new island destination and we would stop for a mid morning swim in a secluded cove somewhere along the way. The kids and the adults loved jumping off the boat, snorkeling, stand up paddle boarding or just swimming around. All the gear is already on the boat, just pack your swimsuit and sunscreen. After eating lunch on the boat we would return pull up anchor and continue to our destination for the evening. Before you set anchor or pull up to the dock, Adriana gives you information about the island, the best beaches and points of interest, modes of transportation and even restaurant recommendations. All you have to do is decide on what best fits your groups interests. She makes it so easy you don't need to spend hours combing through books wondering what the best sites to see are. She can and will even call ahead to arrange a cab for you if you need it. Our 10 and 8 years old kids loved the trip so much, as did us parents, that we returned in 2019 and sailed again. Like I said we NEVER repeat trips so we insisted on seeing new islands and ports. Our first 2 week trip in 2015 took us to the Cyclade islands and the second 2 week trip in 2019 we went to the Dodecanese. Our kids were 14 and 12 this time and still loved everyday of the trip, until we had to leave. We told Adriana and Radu to start building another 2 week itinerary for us as we are considering and will probably be back for a third time. Truly cannot say enough great things about this experience. Adriana and Radu will make your trip into a personalized adventure tailor made for your family or friends.

Amazing !!!
We were a group of five adults with several trips to our credit. We had an amazing week with Adriana and Radu. Not only have we sailed in a magical setting, we have also benefited from the experience of our guides. Adriana and Radu do everything to make our experience perfect. The boat is impeccably clean and very well maintained. At each island our hosts gave us advices and recommendations on the sites to see and their advices were always very good. In addition, the stops in the small bays little attended are magic. They are always on the lookout for questions and requests. I do more than recommend because we are going back next year! You must live this experience .Thank you Adriana and Radu! See you next year !

Three awesome weeks sailing the Greek Isalnds on the Albatross with Adriana and Radu!
What an awesome experience we shared with family and friends on our amazing three-week charter with Adriana and Radu on the Albatross! Our holiday far exceeded my expectations thanks to the special care and hospitality given to us by Adriana and Radu. They made this a very special holiday for me, my family, and closet friends. From my first email inquiry two years prior to boarding the Albatross, Adriana was very responsive and provided me with all the information I needed to ensure I chose the proper charter of the Greek Islands. Once aboard, Adriana and Radu surpassed all my expectations for ensuring we had a safe and fulfilling experience. Everything from selecting our daily routes, visiting beautiful harbors and towns, to recommendations for sights to see and places to eat was spot on! I can’t imagine a better time with a better crew to see the Greek Islands from a local perspective. I give Adriana and Radu 5+ Stars for a holiday of a lifetime- Thank you!

An experience of a lifetime! (and one we would love to do again!)
A year ago we started researching for a spectacular ending to our 5 month European adventure. We decided that a casual cruise around some Greek islands would do the trick. After contacting Adriana and exchanging a few e-mails, we were left with no doubt as to which charter we were going to choose. Adriana is passionate about her sailing and sharing the wonders of Greece with all. From the moment we met Adriana at Skippers we felt immediately “at home”. We were introduced to Radu & the Albatross and got settled in quickly. These guys had thought of absolutely everything! The boat was fully equipped and the Charter Starter was a blessing and covered most, if not all what we needed. We were after a hassle-free, relaxing, yet exciting adventure and that is exactly what we got! We had no particular agenda but the brief was to take us to some beaches, swimming spots, fishing villages, historical sites. We all discussed and decided upon a rough itinerary (subject to weather conditions) on the 1st day before leaving, and although we had to change it during the trip, there was always an amazing alternative offered up by this great knowledgeable team. At each stop, Adriana would share her extensive knowledge of the area with us, complete with recommendations of what to do, where to eat, where to hire a car etc. Everything was just as she had said & we had a great time at each. Adriana & Radu are an incredible team that were completely in sync. Thank you so much for an epic high & unforgettable experience. All the best for your future & we hope that we are in it somewhere!

Great times
If you're looking to sail in Greece I think you should check this out. From the initial email exchanges with Adriana to the last day of sail, everything was perfect. Our expectations were exceeded by the friendliness, kindness, and professionalism of Adriana and Radu. They know the islands like their back pocket and sailing is their passion. In every place we stopped they had recommendations for us where to go, what to see, where to eat, and they were spot on with everything. The sailing was nice and smooth, the boat is updated with all new navigation gadgets and it top condition. Besides the people and the boat, other things to consider: 1) from my research they are the only ones with a flexible schedule, all other charter boats are on a Sunday to Saturday pattern that may not fit your plans; 2) they do not go through a broker, Adriana answers all the emails and the info you get is specific and correct; 3) the prices are set (not + fuel, or + port and other fees, or any other creative gimmicks); 4) they are flexible (time, itinerary and all). Thank you Adriana and Radu.

Second time - still the best!
This was the 2nd trip for us on Albatross with Adrianna and Radu; first time for the other couple that came with us. It was as fantastic as the first time and our friends also completely enjoyed the 2 weeks of sailing. Their sailing and local knowledge are amazing. The boat is large, stable and comfortable. The itinerary was planned based on weather and our wishes, and Adriana briefed us on each spot when we arrived (worth taking notes or recording this!). They are always there and willing to do whatever is needed to make the trip amazing, and at same time they have the ability to stay out of the way (not always easy on a sailboat :) ). We already have others asking to join us the next time!!

Such an amazing experience - the stuff dreams are made of!
If you only visit Greece once, sail. Sail into the harbors of the old villages and truly experience their breathtaking beauty. Imagine what it was like hundreds or thousands of years ago... So much history and beauty awaits! If you only sail once, sail with Captain Radu and the lovely Adriana aboard the Albatross! We had the honor of meeting them and spending a week on board. It was the best vacation decision we've ever made.
Radu is an amazing captain - I (a skeptical and nervous soul who has never sailed) felt immediately comfortable and confident in his ability. It was clear that we had the best skipper in all of Greece (ha!), seriously though, I am so grateful we chose to sail with him. Adriana is so much more informative than I had anticipated. Every time we docked she recommended things to do, told us a bit about the history, and gave us the general lay of the land. Most importantly, she told us where to eat. Eat exactly where Adriana tells you to eat and you will have experienced the best food that island has to offer. Not to mention the dreamy ambiance of the restaurants...
As I mentioned I am a very skeptical and cautions person. Adriana made the whole booking experience smooth, she replied promptly and explained in detail how the process works. Had she not been such a professional, I wouldn't have booked at all - we would've likely stayed at a hotel in Santorini or something like that. I am forever grateful that we stumbled upon Blue Water Sailing and chartered a private yacht! (I would've never before even considered it was possible)
We booked the first week of October. The weather was perfect and the water was about 75F, nice and warm. The ports were less busy and we got to experience towns like Hydra without being surrounded by tons of other tourists. Thank you so much Adriana and Radu!

If you are after a hassle free, relaxing yet exciting adventure that is exactly what you will get:

  • Visiting Greece on board a private boat charter with captain allows you to unpack your bag once and visit as possible in a week - each day you will be visiting a new destination. Unlike a regular one week trip "get a ferry/find a hotel type "where you would probably end up spending all your time at one island. Rent a sailboat with captain and you will be visiting 5-6 different destinations in the same week. Pretty efficient, right? And the best part - a skippered boat charter in the guarantee for 100% hassle free vacation while exploring a multitude of destinations. No need to figure out connection in between islands, accommodation, day trip around the island - step on board and the sailboat will provide all these.
