Reviewed 8 August 2016 via mobile

Reasonably priced boats, you pay for fuel used, head right out of harbour for best swimming coves etc. Enjoy, we did

We experienced the wrath of Katie last week. Terrible shame as everyone else was very polite however taking a deposit without mentioning that
A. We had to pay for fuel
B. We had to pay for fuel only in cash
C. We couldn't split payments on three cards (we were three families)
The manor in which this new information was delivered was unnecessary and hostile.

Once this was all done with we had a great day on the sea.

Get the full information on booking and deposit and don't put up with bad customer service.

In short get rid of rude staff member.

6 of us hired a 30hp for a week. Great fun and you get to see some magnificent views/areas. Would highly recommended. Great staff who are always around to help and provide you with sound advice.

We arranged boat hire the day before and had a great day out, staff were informative, showed us where to go, how to operate, told us about the fuel charge in advance and it really was a great way to see the coast. It does get choppy in the afternoon and it probably would have been better if we'd left earlier in the morning, but still a great day out.

We hired out a Rib that was big enough for the 7 of us, costly around 110 euros and fuel on return, roughly 25 euros. We had never had any experience driving a boat before, but we all managed to pick the process up easily.
You are given a quick talk on how the boat operates and working the anchor.
The boats are hired out between 9am and 4pm (Greek Time), this is because the sea gets choppy in the afternoon.
We headed North-East and explored some wonderful coves and went to Kalami Beach for our lunch before heading back. Heading back at 2:30/3 meant for some very rough seas - if you have children on board the lifejackets are definitely recommended.
The boat we went on (Cruela) had a canopy that we were able to lift and drop for some shelter from the sun.
It was a fantastic experience, and as long as you are careful and head back at a good time, you will have a great time.
