It was a nice cruise, but pick an early time of departure. Ours started at 11:00, and by the time we arrived at Symi it was so hot we couldn’t walk around and enjoy the island. The swimming later was really refreshing and was the highlight of our trip, but it ended fast, 30 minutes are not enough.

Tour went as described. The boat left the port on time and then drove first to Symi. There we had 3 hours at leisure. Then we went to St. George Bay for 30 minutes of bathing time. There were life jackets and pool noodles, but no diving goggles on board. If you are sensitive to vertigo, it is best to sit in the back of the boat. Finally, a nice day trip.

Wow! With its ‘wave-piercing technology’ this boat really cuts through the water and you have the smoothest ride possible! Leaving later than other Symi trips enabled a leisurely breakfast before joining the boat for its 11am departure. In just one hour we were in the beautiful harbour town of Symi, Gialos. Pretty pastel coloured buildings encompass the natural harbour of deep azure waters. A glass of chilled white wine washed down the local delicacy of Symi Shrimp (do not peel these, eat whole!) and a refreshing swim stop at the magnificent bay of St George topped off a glorious day. Would highly recommend. Super boat, super staff! Thank you guys!
