Hello,
 
I will be visiting Kalami with my family in 2 weeks time. 
 
Can someone recommend somewhere to hire a small boat from please?
 
I would prefer to book for just a day or two and do not have a boat license.
 
Recommendations for interesting and accessible places would be greatly appreciated also.
 
Best Regards,
 
Ian

Hi Ian.

We get our boat from Tassos at The White House and you don't need a boat license for the smaller boats. You are restricted as to where you can go...I think it's as far south as Nissaki and as far north as Kassiopi. If you go there make sure you go first thing and return early afternoon as the wind can pick up and make for an interesting journey back! We just like pottering about in the boat...dropping anchor in a bay and jumping off for a swim. We usually go to the following for lunch by boat; Kerasia, San Stephano, Kouloura and Agni. It's more fun than driving although you can walk to Agni from Kalami. As you head to the jetties a waiter will usually come out and help you tie up.

We didn't make it this year so I am envious!

Have a great holiday

Lins

I too recommend just pottering about and stopping off somewhere for lunch after anchoring near a small deserted beach for a swim. We have also on occasions taken our own picnic. Whatever you do it's great fun.
and Charlie, Nia and Daniel's Gran too

All of the tourist shops in Kalami will hire you a boat including the A&A.  We always with book with Alex and George at Agniboats.com. 
I would suggest you head straight up to Kassiopi for coffee and look around, then poodle back to San Stephanos for lunch, where as Lin has said they will all come out and help with mooring.  Then just meander down the coastline, stopping whereever you fancy, past the Rothschild mansion, have a look at Koloura and just below Agni there are some underwater caves which is a nice place to drop the anchor.  If there are tour boats in there, just wait until they go then you get it to yourselves!  You can go as far south as Barbati. 
It's a lovely way to spend a day or three!

Thank you for the replies.
I like the sound of all the suggestions as that's pretty much what I would like to do; visit somewhere as far as reasonably practical, have a look around before heading back towards Kalami, finding somewhere to swim and have lunch on the way... Enjoy the views, sun and relax!

We are only in Kalami for a week though and so don't want to commit too much time to the boat, but a day should be splendid!

Really looking forward to my holiday now!

Cheers

Ian
