    Die Reise war angenehm. Gut Organisiert, beim Rückfahrt waren alle verwiert wir konnten nicht mit dem Schnellboot zurück fahren, zu viel Wind. Leider brauchten wir über 2 std mit eine andere Boot zurück. Im Hafen waren die Busse schon dort um alle Personen entweder im Hotel oder zum andere Hafen zu Transportieren, alle haben Euro 10.00 zurück bekommen.

    June 3, 2022: One hour to go to Symi by speedboat, thrills guaranteed. Symi is beautiful, 3 hours there was enough to visit and taste the famous prawns. The swimming site on the way back was amazing, the water so pure. The only downside is that the boat has a large passenger capacity (about 80/100 people I think), and that the 20-minute stop for swimming is really very short. It is difficult to anticipate to prepare for swimming because no indication is given before the boat stops. Big scramble, when swimming towards the 2 ladders. We really had a great day, to do absolutely.

    The city of Symi was very charming with its colorful facades and invites you to stroll and eat ice cream. A small tourist train as a city guide is also available. However, you should take something to wear with you or a towel. I was very cold from the driving wind. The bay was beautiful, deep blue water as often on Rhodes. Unfortunately, you don't see much in the stony water while snorkeling. But in itself a nice destination.
