    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!

    It was super nice. You left on time and got back on time. The Bay of St. George was absolutely gorgeous. Also Symi as an island! The time in the bay for swimming of 30 minutes was very nice, but a bit short maybe you could extend the time to 45 minutes. Otherwise, the crew on board was very friendly, they didn't take more passengers than there were seats, which was great too! Everyone had a seat and the speedboat was really great! Highly recommended!

    This was great. Symi is a lovely island. The boat stops pretty soon into the return journey to allow swimming in the bay. It's 20 mins as advertised so just be ready to quickly get to the steps and make the most of the swimming time. There are loos on board but you need to take your own drinks. I found it really enjoyable and would recommend.
