    Following my very enjoyable trip to Lindos with this company I decided to also visit Symi with them. What a great day out. We were allowed to board 30 mins prior to departure and I chose an upper deck seat with fabulous views. The boat left punctually at 11:00 and seemed full. The journey to Symi was smooth & fast, at just gone 12 we were moored up in the heart of the town of Symi. The boat journey was cool so the heat of Symi hit me immediately. The action seems to be around the harbour front which is bustling with life. Lunch was a crisp glass of Greek white wine & some Symi shrimp. Three hours is quite ample time to investigate this charming outpost of the Aegean, and to buy some natural sponges & local herbs! The swim stop on the return journey, at St George’s bay, was out of this world; pristine, azure waters & the scenery of this bay is breathtaking. The boat was back in Rhodes at 17:00, as promised. The crew, friendly & polite; thank you for such a memorable day out!

    Really enjoyed this boat trip, would definitely recommend. We were staying in Ixia which was about a 10 minute bus ride to Rhodes, the bus stop was only a 2 minute walk away from the main port which was very easy to find. We made sure we arrived 30 mins before the meeting time and it was already very busy, if your wanting a front seat then I'd say get there even earlier! Boat ride itself was great (I'd take a jumper as top of the boat is very windy), plenty of time to explore Symi island, and the swim stop on the way back was fun. Even if you don't go in it's such a beautiful place to stop. Highly recommend this trip

    With great weather, our journey started with the high-speed boat. After an hour we had reached Symi, a small colorful idyllic village. 3 hours stay were unfortunately too short to be able to explore everything. Then we went swimming in St. George Bay, the bay is just gorgeous with its clear turquoise water. This trip is highly recommended if you are in Rhodes.
