Was and amazing experience, staff and captain all very friendly. Symi was beautiful and St George bay stop was so pretty and got to have lunch there which was yummy. 100% recommend

Coolest looking boat in the harbour, gets you there in an hour, leaves an hour later than most of the boats and gets there before them. A totally awesome experience
