What a fantastic day! this was the last boat trip we went on and it was by far the best :)
It was relaxed and a wonderful experience on a pirate ship, which is very much looked after and taken pride in. The crew Super Mario, Jovanni, Stammy, captain Nicolas, were fantastic, especially Jovanni who help me get into the sea (as I was a little scared because I couldn't touch the floor ha ha ha ).
I would highly recommend this trip and its crew, we will definitely come again with the family.

If you want to make unforgettable memories on your vacation, you should definitely went to the trip with this amazing boat. We really enjoyed the whole day on the boat during the perfect service and organization of all the wonderful crew consisted of Super Mario, Jovanni, Stammy and captain Nikolas.

This trip can offer you a lot of amazing stops like Lindos and swimming trips in the way back and our most favourite part of it was the top of the boat where can you enjoy sunbathing on really comfortable groundsheets and just admire the view. You can also taste there delicious coctails for a really great prices.

We had a lot of fun with everyone from the boat crew until my friend lost her watches in the deep sea when she was jumping into it. But guess what: one of that amazing crew called Stammy: OUR SUPER HERO! found them in the deep water, when he was diving for them. I have never seen such a wonderful people in my life and we are more than thankful for your help. The whole trip was stunning and we will never forget it, I would recommend this trip and especially this boat crew to everyone who would like to see the beauty of the places and the people of Rhodos.

Thanks to Magellanos we spent a beautiful day ! The tour on a boat to Lindos took about one hour, then we had 3 hours free so we visited Acropolis and had a lunch in a restaurant.
On a way back we had 3 stops for swimming on a beautiful places. These places were really beautiful !
The stuff on the boat was very very friendly - we felt like old friends. They really enjoy their work :-)
I would only recommend them !!

Wow! What an amazing day trip to Lindos on board the Magellanos II. My wife and I took our children (8 and 5) to the harbour and boarded at around 8:30. We had enquired via Facebook and the team responded within 30 minutes and booked us on board for the following day.
The boat itself is lovely, we sat on the bottom floor in a shaded area as it was so hot (34 degrees Celsius)! There are two male and two female toilets on board along with a mini bar serving drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and snacks, including Pringles and Oreos, so my little ones loved it.
It takes around an hour to get to Lindos and it was a lovely chilled journey with a cool breeze throughout.
We arrived at Lindos - that was also fantastic but for a different review- and had about 2 and a half hours before coming back to the boat.
We stopped 3 times at different areas on the way back for swimming and snorkelling, and happy hour at the bar was a big hit! I highly recommend the pina coladas! We arrived back at 16:00.
I would highly recommend this boat, the service and the whole experience; we were welcomed and had a terrific time from start to finish.
We will definitely come again if we are lucky enough to visit Rhodes again soon.
Thank you, Magellanos!

Have been on this boat trip many years from the first boat until this boat and have always been more than satisfied with the whole day, yes the boat is good but the crew if you have time to talk to them are full of fun and happy in Thier work. Be carefull with the £5 cocktails the lunatic that makes them is a master at his craft. Give them a go and phone them direct or book at the harbour as Tui do a trip with them at Tui prices.
35 euros for a 9 to 16.00 day to lindos amazing place and three chances to swim on the way back.

This was without a doubt the highlight of our trip!
I've been to Rhodes before and we took a boat trip to Lindos from Kolymbia, but that was in 2017 so when I booked for this year I couldn't be sure if it was the same cruise.
When Antonis picked us up I recognised him immediately and told him we'd been with them before, he was so happy we remembered them! This time we were on the the Megallanos II, the newer, bigger boat.
Everything was that much more comfortable and even in this current situation, we felt all precautions were taken in the appropriate manner.
All of that is just detail, the most important part was the crew! Honestly I felt like they treated as us long time friends, I can't put into words how welcome they made us feel. If you find yourself in kolymbia and you want to take a boat trip to Lindos, don't bother with anyone else, the Megallanos is the only boat you need to book! A huge thank you to all the crew, and the on-board photographer for her kindness and genuine interest in our family. We will never forget our day.

Fantastic trip.

Wanted to avoid booking everything via Tui and contacted Magellanos directly via email. They transferred us to and from the hotel for free.

We took the boat trip from Kolimbia to Lindos with a number of swimming stops on the return. We have a 4 year old and there was no problem, she even jumped off the side at the swimming stop!

There is just enough time in Lindos to visit the acropolis and grab some lunch, not quite enough time to explore Lindos town as well. You have to pick one or the other although without a 4 year old you might cover more ground.

The staff on board we great fun and the whole day was fantastic.

A lovely family trip to Lindos…after being picked up from our hotel in kolymbia, we set off to Lindos around 9am - It took around an hour on a lovely, vintage, sailing boat, with the most friendliest and helpful crew. After spending around 3 hours in Lindos exploring the sea/rocks with the boys and a spot of lunch, we headed home. On our way back, we stopped at three lovely coves and got the opportunity to swim in the most amazing turquoise blue sea!

I can’t recommend this trip enough

What a great trip
We went from Kolymbia to Lindos leaving at about 8.30 from our hotel
Magellan’s provided us with a taxi to and from the harbour!
It took about 50 mins to get to Lindos with sensational views of the eastern side of Rhodes-to enjoy as we made our way to Lindos where we had a 3 hour stop.
Although we have been there many times it still never fails to impress. It really is the jewel in the Rhodes crown.
Following Lindos we returned to Kolymbia stopping off at three different locations for a chance a swim in the sea.
The staff on the boat were really friendly and helpful. Especially careful to ensure everyone complied with Covid regulations.
All in all a fantastic day out which I can thoroughly recommend to anyone.

Wow ! What a fantastic trip from kolymbia to Lindos by this boat ! We were collected from our hotel by a wonderful gentleman who on the way back told us that this is a family run business (and you can tell) the staff are attentive, helpful and just lovely lovely people.
The boat is clean and plenty of space including sunbathing areas !
Our first stop was Lindos which was.Beautiful ! Enough time to get round see the acropolis and have a coffee and cake !
Then back on the boat for happy hour ( which lasted longer than. An hour) in between which there were three stunning stop off/swimming locations !
All in all a bloody well worthy 5 stars on trip advisor - thank you to captain of operations, your crew and your boat ! Such a fabulous day and will be revisiting in the future
