My family and I had an amazing time on Panagiotis' 15' Iris Compass 150 cc boat. After some quick and simple instructions and a short demo ride from the captain, we went our own way and cruised up the coast from Kolymbari Marina to Menies Beach. The boat was very simple to operate, easy to manoeuvre and was stable (at least on the sea that we had today). We dropped anchor along the way and took a cooling swim in the turquoise water in one of the many coves. We then had a picnic lunch that we had brought with us. It was absolutely idyllic. Fortunately the boat had an awning to protect us from the sun's rays. However, and depending on where you are sitting on the boat, you will catch the sun at some point so don't forget your sunblock and sunglasses! Please be aware that the minimum rental period for this boat is 4 hours. Whilst this wasn't an issue, it wasn't apparent from the boat's listing on GetMyBoat.com and only became known after sending a booking enquiry to Panagiotis. My family and I cannot recommend this highly enough. You won't be disappointed :-)
We went out with four adults, it was amazing and had a great time. We went to three different spots all fantastic and had blue clear water. We were able to snorkel and swim and they also prepared a lunch that was the best chicken I have ever tasted. We got unlimited water, beer, juice and snacks. We would come back and rent again.
We have three young children the oldest of which had his birthday on board. When making the arrangements for our trip to Balos I told this to Vasileios and he went above and beyond by having a birthday cake on board waiting for us. This trip was amazing and I would recommend to anyone that wants to make the most of vacations. It was relaxing and peaceful ride where we could take in the scenery. There was plenty of space on board to put baby to nap out of the sun, snacks and incredible meal prepared fresh, knowledgeable and friendly captain and skipper catered to our every need. When we arrived to Balos some of us jumped off the boat directly and swan to and from shore. (There was also a dingy that brought us to a dock in case we didn’t want to jump in). Next time we will be planning an overnight trip exploring other parts of the island.
Huge boat for the price. Best day of the holiday, probably best day of the year. Kids (and my wife) had fun making a tiktok on the sun deck. We had a cruise from 3.00 til 9.00 which was perfect for teenagers and enjoyed the sunset after the crowds had gone home.
Excellent cooperation as captain decided to switch to a larger boat due to strong wind and high waves. Turned out to be a very good decision. We had a superb journey and crew knew exactly what to do where. We enjoyed the lunch as well. All in all a day that we shall not easily forget, and I shall recommend you to our friends back home!
Aggelos was our captain on the Axopar and the day was more than we could have hoped for. The boat was outstanding , clean and amazing for all of us. The itinerary they planned was fantastic. We were able to see amazing beaches and castle. Would highly recommend everything - the captain, the boat, the company
