We had a very good time on the Rofos boat: swimming in very clear water, fishing, nice spots... Everything was great. We recommand Rofos Boat and we will come back! Nicolas and Sarah

We were booked on this trip through our hotel manager, we were delighted that there was only our group (10) and another couple from our hotel booked on to the trip that day. We got to Spinalonga and because the men in the group didn’t have tshirts in ( we left them on the boat) we weren’t allowed in. This was fine as we didn’t know we had to pay additional to get onto the island. We called Katerina and Yannis and they came straight back to pick us up and gave us longer on the boat...which actually we all preferred to do. During our trip my sons hat blew off, we informed Katwruna and Yannis it was only cheap so not to worry but bless them, they turned the boat around and fished it out of the sea for him! The swim stops were just perfect, and when the younger children didn’t want to go into the sea, this wonderful couple would play with them and entertain them with stickers to allow us to go into the water. My little boy was a little worried about swimming in the middle of the sea (he’s only 2) and Yannis helped him into the sea to me and made him feel calm and happy! The food was delicious and there was so much! There was lots left over because there was some fussy kids in our party but it was delicious! We were gutted we didn’t manage to get onto the sunset cruise during our stay. We will be returning next year and will definitely do both trips this time!

My friend and I booked this trip directly with Katerina. We had an amazing and relaxing afternoon swimming in the clear waters and enjoying the peace and scenery! 'Snacks' ( more like a full meal) and drinks were served on board. The trip is excellent value for money! I'd recommend it and would happily do it again given the opportunity!
We were recommended to this friendly couple who runs a beautiful boat for fishing trips or just for a lazy day out swimming nearby the most beautiful beaches around kolokitha island some of them are only accessible by boat. Nice traditional launch on the boat, keeps everyone happy. Katerina is a brave captain, so her husband Giannis. When in Elounda do make yourself a favour to this unique experience.
Getsemani, Italy
We chose an afternoon trip with swimming and fishing. We had an amazing time from start to finish!! The swimming spots were beautiful, we even got to swim in caves where the light shone through, absolutely stunning. We stopped at several fishing spots keeping the husbands entertained and giving us ladies a chance to relax in the sun or swim. The food served was excellent, perfect traditional Greek mezze, the wine was also lovely and plentiful. The hosts were extremely welcoming, we had an amazing trip. We will definitely arrange an afternoon out with these lovely people again next year!

Absolutely excellent afternoon on the boat with katerina and John. Beautiful route, lovely swimming spots, and delicious home made snack. Incredible value for money- would highly recommend!

Katerina and John were fantastic hosts and captains. They took us around Spinalonga and to two wonderful spots to swim. Touring with them felt like being a part of their family. We felt so lucky to have found them and couldn't recommend them more highly!
