Renting a boat on Greek islands.....

Jump to last reply

ok so off to Paxos in a few days a keep hearing that renting a small motorised boat is the thing most vacationers there do to get to all the nice coves etc etc round the island. This is something we really want to try but now the time is coming are a little nervous...

We are complete novices about this and not sure whether it is something most people do freely without worrying about stuff going wrong or whether this puts a lot of people off (bad weather, big currents, break down etc etc). (we have been told there is not an issue with getting a licence etc etc)

I'm hoping we are just being over the top and worrying over nothing as we really want to do it but hoping to find out whether others are nervous about this or whether we should get on with it and stop worrying.....

We are there for 11 nights and it being such a small island, renting a boat for days sounds like a great way to spend the day but just wish we weren't so nervous!

thanks in advance
