I know I can ask when I get there, but has anyone ever hired one of Filippos Boats? We are thinking of doing this for a change when we go, any idea of how much they are at all?Smile

The web address is www.filippos-boats.com and you have to email for prices.
We haven't hired from them as based in Kalami but you see a lot of them about.

Last time we got a boat they had to be back by 4pm at Fillipos so we went to St Stephano and they let us keep it till 6pm.
They only charged us 12 euros for fuel as well even though we went up to Imerolia and then down as far as Agni bay.
If I remember rightly the boat (30Hp) was 60 euros for the day but that was in 2010.

We always hire from St Stephano too (Gianni's) as when the wind gets up in the afternoon the leg round to Kassiopi can be interesting! And he is cheaper than Fillipos and we had a cool box too which was useful.

Agios Stefanos is the village before Kassiopi, you turn off at Sines and just follow the road down, it's a tiny pretty place with a handful of tavernas about 15 minutes by car. When we first came to Kassiopi the Thomson rep told us to go to Gianni and we have used him ever since, lovely chap and its lovely to sit in a bar right on the waters edge when you come back in, as Bob said they often tell you not to get back until 6pm which just gives you that bit longer if going right down to Nissaki and its worth it.

We've hired twice from Fillipos and both times have been great. Works out about 70 Euros for a 30HP boat. We usually go down to Agni and back, stopping off at coves for snorkelling and fishing, and have lunch along the way. I think Fillipos ask you to be back at 4pm is because the seas get pretty rough off Kassiopi from about 3pm onwards. Last year we were smashing through waves to get back, and Fillipos send a guide boat out to check if anyone is in difficulty.

St Stefano is beautiful and well worth the visit, a taxi wont cost much.
As Susie said the sea between there and Kassiopi can get mighty rough in a little boat late afternoon, we once had a problem that meant we could not lower the canopy and the boat was literally flying from wave to wave.
The mother in law was absolutely terrified which was the only good thing about it.
Everyone was drenched to the skin but luckily it was a hot day and we soon dried out.

Just to reassure folk, that all the hire boats can safely ride the afternoon roughness, it is just a tad uncomfortable. Try to steer the boat so that you take the waves head on as much as possible, better than rolling from side to side.
