All Aboard! Unforgettable Boat Trips in Rhodes

boat fishing

With over 220 kilometres of spectacular coastline, lapped by crystal-clear turquoise waters and blessed with over 300 days of sunshine – thanks to the Sun God, Helios – it’s little wonder that the island of Rhodes is one of the top Greek destinations for beach lovers and sun worshippers.  

The island’s idyllic coast is blessed with long stretches of picturesque golden sands and dotted with secluded rocky coves, all against a shimmering backdrop of brilliant blue waters. 

While many visitors are drawn here by Rhodes’ fascinating history, if you want to experience the island at her most beautiful, you need to take to the waters. 

For inspiration, here are four fabulous suggestions for boat trips in Rhodes. 

1. Rhodes Sailing Trips

Come sail away!

For a laidback introduction to the best beaches in Rhodes, hop on a private yacht and set sail on a day sure to live long in your memory. Our Rhodes sailing trip departs from Mandraki Harbour – so you cruise past the Stag and the Doe, where the legendary Colossus of Rhodes once stood – and takes you on a journey along the magical east coast. 

Spend the day with the wind in your hair and a smile on your face, as you explore some of the island’s most delightful spots, including the rocky shores of Kallithea and Anthony Quinn Bay. They’ll be plenty of opportunity to soak up some rays on deck, cool off with a dip in the sea, and mask up for a snorkelling adventure. And of course, you’ll be well fed with a light lunch on board – which tastes all the better for those magnificent views! 

2. Fishing Trips in Rhodes

Enjoy your catch on board! Lunch during the fishing trip.

Greek cuisine is revered around the world, but there’s little more satisfying than tucking into a feast of fresh fish and succulent seafood in a beachside taverna … or is there? 

For a truly special day in Rhodes, combine a day on the sparkling Aegean with a meal fresh from the sea on a Rhodes fishing trip. Whether you’re a fishing novice or just fancy casting off in a different location, your captain will show you how to fish Greek style! 

Once you’ve reeled in your catch, you can relax on deck or slip into the water for a cooling dip while the crew cooks up a fishy feast, complete with salad, bread and refreshments. You can’t get much fresher than that!

3. A Day Trip to Mesmerising Symi

Rhodes is the largest and most popular Dodecanese island; it’s also a great hub for exploring some of the tiny, unspoilt islands in the archipelago. Popping over to the neighbouring island of Symi is undoubtedly one of the most popular boat trips in Rhodes. 

Home to one of the most photographed harbours in the world, sailing into Symi is unforgettable. This cosmopolitan little island oozes old world charm. Pastel-coloured neoclassical houses rise around Yialos Harbour like an amphitheatre, while colourful fishing boats jostle for space with exclusive yachts.  

Wander up the Kali Strata to explore the charming upper town of Chora, visit the Monastery of Panormitis, or sip a glass of wine in the harbour and soak up the ambiance. 

4. Explore Timeless Halki

For a totally different experience, step back in time with a day trip to Halki. It feels as though time has stood still on this tiny Dodecanese island – not least because the main clock in the island’s only settlement has been silenced for over 20 years. 

This is a place to embrace simple island life. Wander round tumbledown aristocratic houses and through quaint, flower-strewn alleyways. Sip coffee at a harbourside taverna watching fishing boats bob gently. Head to the peaceful beaches for a dip, or walk one of the island’s many trails. 

A word of warning though – Halki will steal your heart and for many people a day simply isn’t enough. If you fancy a longer stay, we can arrange that through our partner, Nissia Holidays
