we rented a selva30/60hp boat on sunday for 5 people. (even if there‘s space for up to 7 i wouldn‘t recommend to use it with more than 5, so you can easily swap seats for tanning / chilling.) before leaving, the skipper gets a full instruction on how to control the boat and where to go and where not to. the instructor will answer any questions you may have.
the boat itself was well maintained, really clean and everything worked as expected. a selva30 engine is all you need for some fun on the ionian sea.
we connected our iphones with the on-board bluetooth radio and what can i say: awesome sound! altogether we had a great day on the water and therefore we recommend ionian boats without any limitation.

I contacted Ionian boats by email prior to our trip. They were very responsive and the boat, days and price were agreed prior to the trip. On arrival we had a friendly greeting, signed paperwork and an induction on the boat was completed, I didn't time it but I don't think it was any more than half an hour. After that we enjoyed four days of exploring. Would highly recommend the islands are stunning. The boat was cleaned at the end of each day by the team and fuel levels checked before leaving each morning. Fuel costs were in addition to the boat hire costs. We had no issues with the boat or the team. We hired the smallest boat for a family of four (all adults).

We had a great day on the water and could explore Lefkas and Meganisi. Ionian Boats gave us an excellent boat to enjoy the islands from the water and we had a very nice day. We can recommend to rent at Ionian Boats as the boats are very clean and good, also the service was at high level.

We have been visiting Nydri for many years and hiring boats to visit the surrounding islands forms a very large part of our holiday plans.

Ionian boats are without doubt the best in the area….very reasonable rates with all their boats in absolute pristine condition, thoroughly cleaned and meticulously maintained after every use.
We’ve never once had an issue in all the years we’ve hired and it’s great to have peace of mind and 100% confidence the boats are up to the job (unlike some other rental companies which appear a tad battered and bruised).

Also, never worry if your’e a novice as Thanos and the team will tell you and demonstrate all you need to know giving you full confidence to explore the stunning scenery out on the sea.

The best value for money.. Searching the way to see all these islands around Nydri, we called Ionian boats and we booked a small boat for 6.. We were actually 4 but still wasn’t expensive… We went around all the islands (Scorpios, Madouri, Scorpidi, Meganisi).. I definitely recommend to book one of these boats.. The staff was pretty gentle even though we spoke on the phone so many times.. Very nice experience..

My girlfriend and I had an amazing day out. Thanos was very helpful and explained clearly how to use the boat, how to anchor up and the best spots to visit etc. We hired the slightly bigger engine size as it gives you more range and you can do a full lap of the island, which was definitely worth it. The price of hire and the fuel was very reasonable. The boat was great with a good sound system you can connect to on Bluetooth. We are praying for some more good weather as the first thing we will be doing is hiring another boat from Ionian Boats!

We hired a boat for the day during our holiday in Lefkas. Customer service was excellent, clear instructions from the staff and the boat was in great condition and had everything we needed. We hired a slightly larger boat (for 7) for the 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 teenagers and it was perfect. Plenty of space. Highly recommend for a fun day out.

We came to Lefkas for a 10–day trip and charted the Chrysa 2 for eight days in a row.

Boat:
The boat, a very nice RIB of 5.8 m length and a 150 Hp Suzuki was just amazing. Everything was tidy and clean and easy to handle. It allowed us to get to many fantastic places around Lefkas but also on the islands nearby like Meghanisi for example.

The canopy came in very handy during our sunbathing stops at all those lovely bays that you can find everywhere along the coasts of the islands. Two anchors in the front and in the back simplified the docking. Six fenders were provided. Lots of storing space helped to keep our belongings save and out of the way.
The fusion audio system that we coupled via Bluetooth to our smartphone was very nice when we listened to Santana’s Samba pa ti during sundowns :-) Small things like the many cup holders complemented the easy life aboard.

Service:
We had an excellent experience with the Ionian Boats team! We stayed in a very nice apartment with its own jetty directly in the bay of Vlycho. On the first day the boat was delivered directly to our jetty. There we got an introduction to the boat and off we got. A couple of times we visited Nidri. Then we stopped at the jetty of Ionian Boats which is located at the heart of Nidri‘s water front. Every time when we returned the boat had been cleaned by the team which we really liked.
We hope to come back to Lefkada once in a while. Then we will definitely join Ionian Boats again. Many thanks to the team!

We rented a boat to explore the hidden gems of Lefkada and the small islands nearby.
The boats are brand new and in excellent condition, the prices are very good with no extra hidden costs and the most important is that the people are extremely nice, friendly and did everything to ensure we have an amazing time.
Highly recommend for everyone!
Thank you guys!

Our snorkeling cruise was canceled the morning we arrived in town, but Ionian boats saved the day. We saw their rentals right at the port and they were able to get us a boat to rent for 100 euros for the day plus fuel used. They showed us how to drive the boat, park the boat (should we want to go to another port), all the local spots to visit including beaches only accessible by boat, and how to drop anchor. We spent all day sailing around the beautiful mountains and islands snorkeling seeing the wildlife, hidden coves, and beaches. We were so happy with the experience we are already planning our return trip. No prior experience in boating or license required. would recommend it as a must to anyone in Nydri for the day. BRING PLENTY OF WATER (stay hydrated guys :) ) and a picnic. Its beautiful
