Full description

Tale a high-speed boat cruise to Symi, of the Dodecanese's most beautiful islands set amid the brilliant blue sea. Enjoy a fast boat service that gives you more time to explore the island. On the way, stop for swimming at Saint George’s bay.

Begin your high-speed cruise at Mandraki Harbor as you set sail for Symi. On arrival, admire the turquoise water of the fishing harbor, the pastel-colored neoclassical buildings that frame the bay, and the colorful church domes dotting the landscape. Disembark at Symi and enjoy approximately 3 hours to explore the fishing town on your own. Have lunch at one of the numerous traditional tavernas (at your expense) or swim in the glittering waters.

Depart Symi and admire the coastal views as you sail through Saint George’s Bay. Stop for a dip in the crystal clear waters or soak up the sunshine on deck before making your way back to Rhodes.

Great experience, though time is short, which for us was also an advantage. Must say that the drivers/hosts didn’t say a word, and didn’t mention that the order of stops would be altered. Found it out only when the boat stopped at St George’s Bay, before arriving in Symi.

the travel time to the island is optimal. Due to high speed even at hot day one feels comfortable. the boat is comfy with multiple accesses to take pictures. 3 hours on the island is good, but I would extend to 4, as the island is very colorful and nice, but service in restaurants is slow, so actually you lose an hour.

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!
