Cozy and very beautiful trip! The clearest blue water at the swimming stop and a beautiful and colorful destination on Simi Island! You have to be by the boat for a VERY good time if you want a deck chair on the upper deck. 30-40 min before departure. There are not many sunbeds compared to people on board… Prepare for the boat to rock a lot and the trip out there can be really cool, because it is early in the day and there is shade on a large part of the boat during the day .. But the sun is bright on the way home! So nice Definitely an experience to have if you visit Rhodes!

Swimming in the bay of Saint George would be more fun after Symi instead of before, because the wind had cooled us very hard! Symi is very nice with great food! Swimming is not allowed! The return trip was pleasant and warm! Lindos is a better alternative for people who like to swim! Transport from the hotel to the port and back was not included with GetYourGuide and if you book this trip directly on the quay in Rhodes it is at the same price!???

The best experience I’ve ever had!! This boat is by far the best boat I saw doing this excursion!! The stop in St George bay was unbelievable!! The boat went very near the beach so you could swim out and also had good safety measures tying a rope outside so the boat didn’t spin around! Symi island was also very beautiful and 3 hours are enough to see everything!! I went to a beautiful fish restaurant and after that went for swimming! The boat is fully air-conditioned and when we went back on the boat after Symi it was so refreshing!! The ships crew are very professional and kind. The toilets are cleaner than our hotel!! Thank you Rizos Cruises for this wonderful experience!
