About
All Around the Island Cruise The traditional boat Poseidon has been sailing the waters around Symi for 30 years. The daily trip all around the island is something not to be missed. You will see the island from a different perspective and have the chance to swim in crystal clear waters that can only be reached by boat.
Symi, South Aegean, Greece

The Poseidon Round Island trip is a brilliant full day excursion. In total, there are 5 stops, with one of these stops being a barbecued lunch on a island at their private location. The boat is fairly small, with about 25/30 passengers, which made it very personal. The lunch was fantastic, which also included wine and ouzo. The trip costs 45 euros per person and is worth every euro. It's crewed by a lovely family crew.

I have reviewed the Poseidon round-the-island boat trip before and, having recently returned to beautiful Symi, wouldn't hesitate to give it five stars again. Yiannis and his crew ensure a warm and convivial atmosphere as they sail you through the azure waters of the Aegean, this time accompanied by dolphins early on. Although the trip has always been busy when I’ve been on it, it never feels too full, and there's space for every one of the international group on board. The swimming stops are all in gorgeous spots which would otherwise not be accessible. Lunch is a spectacular beach barbecue with plenty for both vegetarians and meat eaters alike. The trip is a fantastic way to see Symi at a relaxed pace and, with food and drink included, offers truly excellent value for money. I will be doing it again for certain whenever I return.

This trip around the island is a must. There is a chance to see some Greek churches, swim in remote crystal clear water, but the best part is landing on a small island for lunch. There is a walk into the heart of the island and swimming while the crew fix lunch.

Apart from the chicken everything was vegetarian, and Greek.

The island cat and goats arrived to for the leftover, not much of that as many went back for seconds. Even the fish knew what time it was, they arrived to feed when the plates and dishes were rinsed.

This is a grand day out.

We’ve been to Symimanytimesand one of the main reasons is the trip round the island with Captain Yiannis and the crew on Poseidon. With such a fabulous buffet lunch and swimming in bays of perfect turquoise water, I can’t think of a better days entertainment, and excellent value.
In fact, this year, we were celebrating my wife’s 60th birthday with the whole family and booked ourselves on Poseidon before booking accommodation or flights!

We don’t normally do these types of tourist excursions but after reading the reviews we booked. Wowsa what a fabulous day, relaxing and lots of fun. The boat was full but we didn’t feel squished, we went on a Monday and really enjoyed the spots we stopped at. The lunch was excellent and so generous, healthy and delicious! We would definitely recommend this day to anyone.

This is a great way to see the beautiful island of Symi on board this well organised boat trip and with a friendly and professional crew and a great captain. The round the island trip visits several beaches, some only accessible by sea, and includes a stop for lunch on Seskli island. There are plenty of swimming stops throughout the day. The food, other than the barbecue chicken, is cooked by the captain on the journey and is fantastic - it could happily grace a restaurant table. The chicken is freshly BBQ at lunch. The food, wine, water, coffee and soft drinks are include in the price (€35 pp in August 2020). This is a great way to see the whole island and checkout beaches for a return visit. Can’t praise the captain and crew highly enough - friendly and professional throughout - and have no hesitation in recommending this boat trip. A great day out and very good value for money.

The best thing you can do on the island! We absolutely loved it! Obviously everything we visited was simply amazing, crystal clear waters and you could jump from the boat into totally emerald blue waters and enjoy swimming away from the crowds. The hospitality was great, the food unexpectedly delicious with loads of options while the price was definitely less than one would imagine. Symi is not the cheapest island but this boat tour was indubitably great value for money!

Such an amazing day out . All the stops were wonderful and the colour of the sea was just breathtaking. Jumping off the boat was so much fun. The crew are lovely and so accommodating. Lunch was exceptional , fresh and the chicken was cooked to perfection. A must whilst visiting Symi .

this is the perfect way to see most of Symi's incredible beaches. this particular cruise took me around the entire island with several stops for swimming, eating and drinking. the lunch spread was large and incredible - especially considering it was all made on the boat - with the exception of grilling the chicken on the shore. i also met 3 new local friends from the cruise that added to my adventure. next time i make it to Symi i cant wait to take another of Poseidon's excursions.

My sister in law and I had 3 trips with Captain Yannis and his crew during our 10 day holiday. Each day was different due to the people you share your trip with, the weather, and the amazing changing colours of the sea. There were 5 stops for swimming and a stop for swim and a fabulous BBQ lunch which is set under the shade of trees overlooking the water.
I have taken this boat trip many times over the last 6 years and it is always the highlight of my holiday.
Thank you Yannis and the crew, as always, for a great time.
