Spent 7 days in Symi and 5 of those days we caught the water taxi out to different islands. Friendly and helpful operators that run a family business. Very comfortable and not over crowded. Will definitely use again when we return to Symi.

This is a great way to get to the beaches . The family who run the boats is lovely and it’s a good way to see parts of the island and get to beaches , most of which have no road access .

Symi taxi boats are a cheap fun way, in fact, in some cases, the only way to visit the beaches of this beautiful and restful island. The taxis operate a reliable and frequent timetable and are crewed by experienced, polite and humorous local people. Fairs...More
