What people are saying about Symi

excellent start to finish . boat was lovely and clean very capable smooth crossing timing was spot on Symi was a lovely place swimming in St George's Bay was excellent all in all a great day. Staff also very polite and helpful

Fast and efficient check in. Staff friendly. Town pretty to wander round. Trip to St. George’s bay boat not able to get close to shore so had to go down ladder at rear to boat into deep water

Coolest looking boat in the harbour, gets you there in an hour, leaves an hour later than most of the boats and gets there before them. A totally awesome experience

We really enjoyed our trip to Symi. It was a beautiful island and the best way to get there. We loved our swim stop at St George’s Bay on the way back.
