We had our best day out on Kefalonia when we hired a motor boat for the day from Yellow Boats, which is situated in the corner of the harbour in Agia Efimia. We turned up at 09.00, they took my passport number and mobile phone number then we had a brief lesson in the still waters of the harbour to get used to the boat's controls and how to anchor and tie up the boat when you want to stop somewhere. They also explain about safety, getting in and out of the boat and where the buoyancy aids are stowed. They supply a full tank of fuel, a sun umbrella and a cool box so you can bring your lunch and drinks with you. After the lesson, off you go along the coast to explore small secluded beaches most of which are only accessible by boat. They provide you with a basic map of the 12 beaches you can visit. There are a choice of engine size and boat size depending how many people are going to be on the boat. There were just 2 of us but we chose a larger boat to have more space to sunbathe on the front of it. There was also a retractable sun canopy on the boat we chose. The cost was 75 Euros for the boat we chose plus the fuel you use, which is calculated and payable on return. The day finished at 17.00. The staff were helpful and friendly but on the boat we had, some of the railings at the back of the boat were a little loose, making it tricky to get back into the boat using the ladder after swimming. Other than that, we had a great day out and you don't need any experience as the controls are very straight forward.
