1. Re: Boat Hire

There are boats available from several operators right on the beach, Valais hotel, Golden Dolphin in Alykes too. I would go and enquire at La Caretta restaurant or at the Quad hire directly opposite the rrestauarant ask for Andreas. They have two brand new boats with larger outboards, I took one out just the other week and it handled beautifully and popped along at a right rate of knots too, great boats indeed !

How expensive is it to hire a larger boat for the day? We are a family of 11 going out 21at July?

The two boats I've mentioned owned by Jerry at La Caretta were around 100 euros for the full day but that was for June, July/Aug is high season and may be dearer but as I've said these are brand new vessels. If you use more fuel (in the reserve tank) that will be extra, not going fast these engines are very economical !!

I would think this would be controlled by the licence/insurance agreement, we had 5 on board and there was certainly room for more comfortably.
