We spent a week onboard the Albatross during our honeymoon and it was the absolute highlight of the trip! The places we visited, which we could only have gotten by boat, were spectacular.

My wife and I spent a week on the Albatross with Radu and Adriana in late August-early September. I did extensive research before choosing Blue Water Sailing and I cannot image a better experience.

Hi Steve, Thank you very much for the nice words. Indeed, every day is better and better. Maybe next time just as you said, in two weeks or more we can explore other islands, and make it better and better. More time to explore the islands, relax and swim in the beautiful coves.

We took a week long cruise and couldn't have been happier with the time spent on board and visiting the islands. The sailboat was comfortable and user friendly. The crew were knowledgeable on the local sites and very helpful. All in all this was an amazing week and I plan to return for trip with my teenager.

A special thanks to Radu & Adriana for helping make our honeymoon the trip of a lifetime! We spent nearly 3 weeks in Europe, but we definitely splurged on the 1 week we spent on the Albatross, and without a doubt, it was worth every penny. This was the highlight of our Honeymoon, and I'd recommend booking a charter with... More

We travelled from South Africa to meet friends from Ireland. Our week on The Albatross with Radu and Adriana was five star. They made our week very easy. As this was our first time sailing in The Cyclades their suggestions of places to visit whether it was for exploring, swimming and snorkeling or somewhere to eat was excellent.
