“Good boat hire”
Review of Filippos Boat Hire

Filippos Boat Hire
Reviewed 3 October 2016

We booked one of their boats, found them really professional and not bad value. We didn't go for the cheapest but one up.You only pay a deposit on booking then balance when you take the boat. The instructions given were perfectly clear as to where we can take the boat and given a map with marked areas. We would of liked a little bit more practical instruction but he covered most things. They also tell you a speed to stick to for optimum speed over waves and saving fuel.
It must of worked because on our return we were not charged for any fuel usage which was a bonus. And we did go as far down as Nissaki.

Please just avoid these guys - they are not worth your time or money - their boats are rubbish and dangerous, and they will rip you off.

We have been coming to Kassiopi for many years with family and friends and every holiday we make sure to hire a Filippos boat for at least 1 day of the holiday. Without a doubt this is always the highlight of the holiday! Such a fun day for all ages and such a great way to visit all the beautiful surrounding resorts and stop off for a swim ! Friendly staff to deal with at Fillippos and such great value for money - make this the top activity on your list when visiting this beautiful place !!!!

I can't review the use of Fillipos boats as I couldn't bring myself to hand over money to such a snarling, Ill mannered person.
We arrived at nine ocklock to enquirer about renting a boat. A young woman deigned to look up at us and just said 9:30. I asked about boat hire and she said" all the 80 euro boats have gone we only have 100 euro" I asked what boats they were. She said " the ones in the leaflet".
All of this said in a manner that did seem to me like a person trying to encourage us to rent their boat.
I picked up the leaflet and said ok that's fine.
She just said come back at 9:30 in a very unfriendly manner.
This young woman certainly wasn't trying to endear herself to anyone.
When we walked away I felt very disgruntled and eventually decide to drive over to Agios Stephanos about a 10 minute drive away.
We went into Giannis boats and couldn't have had a more pleasant experience. A nice owner doing his best to make the experience pleasant. The boats much cheaper and the whole thing great. Also Fillipos boats would be 9:30 till 4pm whilst Giannis were 9:30 to 7pm.
I don't normally write on tripadvisor but the rude attitude at Fillipos beggars belief.
