What people are saying about Mandraki Harbour

Stylish boat with super seating. Early birds quickly filled the top deck so I sat on lower deck in one of the comfortable sports-style seat. The journey was smooth & swift and the boat moored in the centre of Symi town. After a lovely stroll around the delightful harbour front lunch was a plate of Symi shrimp…delicious and no need to shell the shrimp! The swim stop at St George’s bay was amazing… such wonderful, clear waters. The trip was efficiently organised, punctual and good value. The one hour journey time, & 11am departure time, is a huge advantage as no need to rush in the morning and you still get to Symi before the other much slower boats. Highly recommended!

It was super nice. You left on time and got back on time. The Bay of St. George was absolutely gorgeous. Also Symi as an island! The time in the bay for swimming of 30 minutes was very nice, but a bit short maybe you could extend the time to 45 minutes. Otherwise, the crew on board was very friendly, they didn't take more passengers than there were seats, which was great too! Everyone had a seat and the speedboat was really great! Highly recommended!

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
