Detailed description

By boat to the most beautiful bays on Rhodes - day trip with start in the north

The relaxed Rhodes boat tour takes you from Mandraki harbour to some of the most beautiful bays of the insects, where you can swim and snorkel in quiet surroundings. On board the comfortable yacht you can enjoy a holiday with lots of sun, sea freshness and dreamlike destinations. The 6-hour day trip includes a longer break at each of the beaches to relax and explore. In addition there is a buffet with Greek specialities on board as well as drinks. The experienced crew takes care of up to 50 passengers (maximum 40 on the evening tour), who experience the cruise on comfortable seats. A day trip and a boat trip to the sunset are to the selection with this offer.

Boat trips on Rhodes have an incredible charm. You will set sail and be curious to see where the course and the captain will take you. From the water you have a fantastic view of the coast and the beaches. On the Rhodes day trip by boat you first head for the Kalithea Springs, known since ancient times for its thermal springs. The small but enchanting bay is located between Kalithea and the large holiday resort of Faliraki. During the anchor stop you can let off steam in the crystal clear water. Snorkeling equipment and various water toys are on board. After about an hour you will leave for the next destination: Afandou Beach. The beach on the east coast stretches over more than 5 kilometres. The caves and rock formations between which you can snorkel are well known. At the end of the Rhodes boat tour you will go to the famous and for many beautiful bay of Rhodes: Anthony Quinn. There, among the large pines, pirates once sought shelter. The water is almost transparent and the marine life is colourful and rich - a perfect place to dive again.

The boat trip at dusk takes the same course at least at the beginning and leads you with the last light of the day to the Kalithea Springs, before it goes out with the yacht on the sea to watch the sunset and try on board from the delicious buffet. The Sunset Tour takes about 3 hours. Start and Finale are the Mandraki Harbour.


Valid on the reserved day or for 12 months after date of purchase if no date has been selected. You will receive the tour operator's details with the purchased ticket. Attention: reservation is required! The reservation can be made through sunbonoo as part of the booking process or later by contacting the tour operator directly via phone or email.

The weather had unfortunately not played along. Although it was cool and the sky was overcast, we had a nice day.


Das Wetter hatte leider nicht mitgespielt. Obwohl es kühl und der Himmel bedeckt war, hatten wir einen schönen Tag.

An experience

We had booked the 6-hour tour, which was also good, because it would have been a shame to have to go ashore again after only 3 hours. It's such a nice area, we enjoyed it.

Ein Erlebnis

Wir hatten die 6-Stunden-Tour gebucht, das war auch gut, denn es wäre schade gewesen, nach nur 3 Stunden wieder an Land zu müssen. Es ist so eine schöne Gegend, wir haben das genossen.

A must for Anthony Quinn fans

The whole trip was great. For me as a fan of actor Anthony Quinn, the bay that once belonged to him was the highlight. I now understand why he loved her ...

Für Anthony Quinn-Fans ein Muss

Der ganze Ausflug war klasse. Für mich als Fan des Schauspielers Anthony Quinn war die Bucht, die einst ihm gehörte der Höhepunkt. Ich verstehe jetzt, warum er sie liebte...
