The boat seats were comfortable for the journey to St George's Bay and Symi. There is ample time to have lunch at the village and look around the shops and local area. I did read one review on GYG about the boat leaving early, so we made sure that we got there in case the boat left before the time stated (it did leave on time for us). The staff were approachable and friendly and I would recommend this activity as its great value for money.

Very beautiful places and the possibility of swimming in St. George Bay is also appreciated. Even though it was the surface water it wasn't too cold. However, the boat has deckchairs and chairs very close together and sometimes badly positioned, for example the deckchairs are turned towards the inside of the deck and therefore do not allow you to enjoy the sea view. It is also quite slow.

Boat departed on time, both times, and in fact was a little early in leaving for Symi island (lucky we got there 20mins early!). The vessel was handled well and was clean throughout, including the toilets which I was impressed by! The staff/crew were helpful and polite and the instructions given to passengers were clear over the tanoy. The snorkelling stop was brief and there wasn’t much to see as you were told not to go far from the boat. It was still pleasant and worth doing. I would say that if you wanted to explore the island properly then there isn’t a lot of time to do so and probably worth hiring a moped. The port itself is lovely to spend a few hours in though.
