We rented a Rib of Panos in early September. Having completed our ICC boat licence only a few months prior to our trip to Paxos, Panos was extremely supportive and very good at sharing their knowledge and experience. RIBs are very well looked after and maintained. During our stay the weather was a little unpredictable for a couple of days. Panos was very good at keeping us informed with local updates and where we could enjoy ourself’s and where to avoid. Highly recommend this company for their beautiful boats as well as their commitment to safety and fantastic customer service/communication.

Highly recommend / will be back !!

We rented a boat from Panos and the experience was amazing! From the customer service of the team in answering a lot of questions from me, to the training on the day (which was really appreciated as we hadn’t done this before) and the suggestions they gave on the best spots to go to it was perfect. The team are really friendly, so helpful and the boat was perfect for what we were looking for.
Thank you Panos for a fantastic experience!

We hired a boat from Panos for the day, the process from start to end was fantastic. Great induction via videos on an iPad so was easy to understand and straight forward. Well priced, great boats and excellent customer service. Will be heading back again very soon for another rental! Even the dog was very friendly 😉

Really lovely people, excellent customer service! Really pleasant induction mostly on an iPad via video and then a physical induction of hoe to use the boat. Nothing was too much trouble and the boats were extremely well looked after and clean!

We took a Sunday boat trip around Paxos and can’t recommend it highly enough. The boat was spatious, clean and comfortable and the beaches, caves and coves we were taken to were stunning. The crew fed us treats 😊 and they were relaxed, friendly and kind. We had an excellent time.

Great staff and really nice boats ! Don’t bother to look other companies !Panos boats are the best!!! Panos boats has amazing staff and really professionals!!! All the boats are in great condition and they have a gps system that can locate you any time if there is an emergency! They don’t try to steel money from you they just want to be professionals and the customers happy!! Just rent from Panos boats!

Από την 1η στιγμή που μιλήσαμε στο τηλέφωνο ο Κύριος Πάνος ήταν εξυπηρετικότατος και πρόθυμος να μας λύσει κάθε απορία.Επειδη ήταν η πρώτη φορά που θα νοικιάζαμε σκάφος Μόνοι μας ,παρακολουθήσαμε ένα βίντεο 50 λεπτών που τα λέει όλα αναλυτικά ,αργότερα κάναμε μια μικρή βόλτα με τον Κύριο Πανό για να τα δούμε και στην πράξη !Περασαμε υπέροχα ,τρομερή εμπειρία να μπορείς να σταματάς όπου και όποτε θέλεις για μια βουτιά ! Οποίος πάει Παξούς πρέπει οπωσδήποτε να επιλέξει να νοικιάσει ένα σκάφος από εδώ και οι διακοπές του θα είναι 100 φορές πιο ωραίες !! Συγχαρητήρια και πάλι και θα τα ξαναπούμε Σύντομα !!

Από το προηγούμενο βράδυ κάναμε την κράτηση μας! Το πρωί περίπου στις 9:00 ξεκίνησε μια ενημέρωση ώστε να ξέρουμε που κινούμαστε καθώς και τι να προσέξουμε! Τα παιδιά καταπληκτικά από την υποδοχή μέχρι την επιστροφή που ακόμη και τότε μας δίναν πληροφορίες για το νησί! Πήραμε τη μικρή βάρκα μιας και είμασταν 2 άτομα αλλά δεν είχε καμία διαφορά από τις μεγαλύτερες! Ο γύρος των Παξών και η κατάληξη στο βουτουμι είναι το αποκορύφωμα του καλοκαιριού!! Μπράβο στα παιδιά και ατο προσωπικό! Υ.Γ. Μιας και αναφέρετε σε σχόλια το θέμα των καυσίμων, εμεις διανύσαμε 35km ( γυρος παξών και Αντίπαξοι) και μας χρέωσαν 22€.. (Το επόμενο βήμα θα ηταν να σου κάνουν δώρο τα καύσιμα 😂). Συστήνονται ανεπιφύλακτα!

What can i say? We rented a boat with my wife from Panos and the service was end to end amazing. Hrysopigi is funny and kind, she helped us book over the phone before we left Athens to go to the island. She offered us tutorial videos and a live lesson on the boat. I watched even though i am an experienced skipper our of respect to the sea and their consistency. The boat had everything and looked very well prepared. We had the best day for a well deserved price. We will definately suggest it to our friends and family. Thank you Hrysopigi, you are awesome.

It’s very simple, if you are going to Paxos and you would like to hire a boat to explore the beautiful hidden coves and beaches (strongly recommend), the ONLY people to hire a boat from are Panos, Chrysopigi and their team based in Loggos. They are polite, humorous and highly professional. The boats are well equipped and kept to very a high standard of maintenance and most importantly, they put safety first at all times. I’ve tried other companies on Paxos over the years but have found Panos Boats to be head and shoulders above the rest. Look no further…

Panos Boats and Trips is the best boat hire company on Paxos. They have the widest range of high quality boats and RIBS, and they are all maintained to an excellent standard. Panos and Chrysopigi (who run the company) are wonderful: friendly, kind, and very professional. This is without doubt the best place to hire a boat on Paxos. They take the time and care to make sure everything goes smoothly and that you are safe and have fun at all times. Thank you Panos and Chrysopigi for always being so fabulous. See you again soon. I recommend Panos boats and Trips wholeheartedly.

Fantastic boat trip around Paxos. Lunch then beach stay on Anti-Paxos and plenty of snorkeling around the island. Super-friendly skipper, safe and considerate with great stops around the incredible coves, cliffs and beaches. Our 3rd trip with you, so memorable and magical. Can’t recommend enough. Wonderful way to get a real feel of the island. Great value for money. Boss dog, guarding the entrance – what a star x

Panos has a great collection of boats, in top condition. He is also very helpful in explaining all the processes and how to navigate the boats. Especially because of COVID-19, the prices were quite low, so we got to hire a boat for 2 days and explore all the remote beaches in Paxos and Antipaxos! We were so glad we could take our own time in the beautiful coves, take the boat inside the caves, especially in Achai 1 we could anchor, and explore the islands at our pace. The whole team was friendly, helpful and we would definitely recommend them! Beautiful memories! And if you like dogs, don’t forget to say hi to Balloo! 🐕

Felt very looked after from start to finish. Excellent instructional videos, especially for those who haven’t used a boat for a few years! Panos and his team make sure that everyone watches the videos before being allowed near their charter, this means that you are clear on how their specific boats run and how best to operate around the island. Following this we had a lovely 10 minute chat with one of the team about our plans for the day and where we would be heading. She tailored her advice based on our plans/potential plans! This included annotating a map of the island and anti-paxos with suggested swimming/snorkelling/viewing spots and highlighting areas that we needed to take caution at due to rocks under the surface. Next up we were taken out in our charter (Ιοαννης) to ensure we were happy with the controls, safe anchor deployment and emergency protocols. This was done in a very laid back and friendly fashion, making us feel more secure about the day ahead. Then followed a spectacular day, exploring little coves, swimming spots you could only access by sea and a quick run round anti-paxos. An absolutely amazing day and memories that will truly last. When handing the boat back, a member of the team was waiting for us on the jetty to make sure we were safely in and off the boat. This service, along with the gps tracking and continual reassurance that Panos and his team would support if there was an issue meant for a stress free rental! Good price for the boat and fuel, with a well maintained and clean boat.

Επιλέξαμε αυτό το γραφείο γιατί τα σκάφη τους εκ πρώτης εικόνας φαινόταν άψογα ! Πήραμε τηλέφωνο και κάναμε κράτηση ! Μας εξυπηρέτησαν κατ ευθείαν ! Πρώτη φορά μόνοι μας περνάμε βάρκα ! Φαινόταν δύσκολο αλλά ο κύριος Πάνος το έκανε παιχνίδι ! Πήγαμε την ημέρα της εκδρομής μας από νωρίς στο γραφείο είδαμε κάποια βίντεο και στην συνέχεια ο Πάνος μας πήγε μια βόλτα για να μας δείξει τα βασικά ! Όπου φάνηκε και ο επαγγελματισμός του γραφείο αυτού δεν σ αφήνει καμία απορία και φροντίζει για να έχεις μια υπέροχη βόλτα ! Εν τέλη πετάμε τέλεια ήταν ότι καλύτερο κ η συμπεριφορά των ανθρώπων άριστη ! Διάβασα μερικά κακά σχόλια που έλεγαν κάποιοι που μετά την εμπειρία μας κατάλαβα ότι αυτοί που τα γράφουν θέλουν απλά να σχολιάσουν κάτι κακό ! Οποίος έχει όρεξη να περάσει καλά περνάει τέλεια και φροντίζουν αυτοί οι άνθρωποι γι αυτό ! Σας ευχαριστούμε πολύ είστε τέλειοι.

Having a boat company myself for years I can tell you what go’s well or not on a boat. While we decided to go on holiday to Paxos for its nature and beautifull bays I should rent a boat to do some exploring. Looking around for a decend boat rental, prices where not the only matter. When you go boating on the coast you need decent strong boats with a good hull that makes your boating comfortable when there should be some waves ….Panos has that range, and not only the simple boats that just keep you above the water, but quality and performance boats that makes your boating at Paxos an adventure that will be loved by your wive, kids, friends ….AND safe! Bringing your boat to the local bay or harbour where your holiday starts, speeking clear English to explane you al the do’s and dont’s …..you should not look furher!! Great guy, great services, and correct price for each boat ! ( Belgium visitors)

The best way to see Paxos, and Anti-Paxos is to hire a boat from Panos Boats & Trips. Beat the rush of the road, not needing to have to join a big cruise with another 100-150 people. Go at your own leisure, visit all the beaches you wish and enjoy the crystal blue seas.

Arrived at Panos we first got some theory to read about how to use the boat and safety-instructions. After that a little movie to explain further. At last, a shipper went with us for a small try-out, to make sure we could handle it oké. Then we brought him back to shore and we went for our trip. It’s possible to go around Paxos-island, take a ride along the Anti-Paxos coastline and spent time in a harbour to grab a lunch.

During our recent holiday to the very interesting island of Antipaxoi, we felt as though we needed a boat to be able to discover the wonderful coves and bay available their and gosh were we right. The guys at panos boats were able to provide us with an amazing boat that felt very big and luxurious even if it was only a small snail in comparison to the super yachts parked nearby. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with boat and especially being able to just park in small bays and coves and swim. Thanks so much guys.

We have used Panos now for a few years for our boat requirements in Paxos. They could not be more helpful, kind, patient, honest & professional. Chrysopigi is an absolute legend and couldn’t be more helpful. I completely mucked up my booking this year and they pulled out all the stops to ensure that we weren’t left without a boat. They also have the best captain in the world but I’m not going to tell you his name as then you will all ask for him and I won’t be able to book him – but, my friend, you know who you are!!!! Already counting the days until we are back in those beautiful waters again next year!!!!

We approached other boat operators before deciding to go with Panos, it was their emphasis on safety, and very professional approach that impressed us, and clinched the deal. After a very comprehensive safety briefing on the morning of our hire, we set out for a fantastic day cruising around Paxos and Anti Paxos, visiting different beaches, swimming, and picnicking along the way. Our boat trip was without doubt the icing on the cake for our holiday on beautiful Paxos. A huge Thank you Panos, to you and your team for an unforgettable day on the water in Paxos

We were recommended Panos by family who have been going to Paxos for years. We were not disappointed from my initial enquiry, through to the end of the trip the service and care were brilliant. We travelled as a family and were new to Paxos, the tour of the Island with the visit to Anti-Paxos is the perfect way to start your trip. We got to see all around the Island with great stop off points for swimming, snorkelling and taking photos. The boat was comfortable, we were made to feel safe and welcome. I thoroughly recommend this experience for all.

Pleasent staff and well-established company based in Loggos but will collect you from elsewhere on Paxos. We are reasonbly experienced boaters but stuck to one of their ‘starter boats with a 30 hp engine. The boats are tracked which is handy as they had to come out and fix our engine which they did quickly and efficiently. They fuel your boat each night in any of Paxos harbours. We thought their hire and seperate fuel rate was reasonable, the hiring details via Chris very easy along with a fairly thorough briefing. Would definitely recommend if you wish to hire from a range of motorboats.

What a fabulous experience! My husband and I spent 10 days in beautiful Paxos during September this year. Our cousin has been working in Paxos for the summer and encouraged us to visit. She booked the day trip with Panos Trips as she frequently uses them. They were the BEST!! Two really friendly guys in charge of the boat. We were so fortunate – only about 10 passengers 😄 What a day!! Right round the island, stopping to swim in the crystal clear turquoise sea, experiencing the incredible caves and cliffs of the island and a couple of hours at Voutoumi beach on Antipaxos with a great lunch at the tavern on the beach. Wouldn’t have missed doing this and can’t wait to do it again on our next visit. Highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We wanted to see Paxos from the sea and renting a boat is a great way to do this. The island is small enough to go all the way around within an hour or so. However there are so many places to see that you can fill a whole day. We went to AntiPaxos which was only 10 minutes from Paxos. Definitely worth a visit for their lovely white sandy beach if you want a rest from pebbles! Panos were helpful and friendly with boat rentals starting at 60 euros per day (9am-5pm). We paid 90 euros for a slightly larger boat. Obviously sea conditions play a big part and our plans for a second day out on the water has to be postponed due to heavy swell and winds. There are several places to rent boats from in Loggos and I would guess they are all fairly similar. Panos looked after us well and we would use them again.

Panos provided a professional service from the first contact to us handing back the boats. We hired two “Special Comfort” boats for our party of 7. We were all novices – and so a staff member had to give our nominated ‘captains’ a 20 minute lesson (A detailed information pack and guidance was also provided) – which was very much appreciated. Once that was over, we set off for a great boating experience down the east coast of Paxos, and on to Anti-Paxos. [Too windy for the west coast]. We stopped off at several beautiful small coves for snorkelling and swimming. We avoided the busy harbours. The boats were very well equipped and maintained. We burnt 29 euros of fuel on each boat. (58 euros in total). A fabulous day out from 09:00 to 17:30.

My husband and our 6 month old daughter hired a boat for the day from Paxos from this amazing company. The customer service is superb, the staff were very welcoming and accommodating. The boat itself was in great condition and very clean-we felt very safe using it. The safety briefing my husband received before we departed was very comprehensive and he felt well educated and informed to captain our boat. We were provided with a life jacket for our baby which was in good condition and fit her well. We spent the day travelling across to Antipaxos and enjoying all the beautiful scenery. We would highly recommend using this company and spending a day out on the water, it was the highlight of our trip! Thanks Panos Boats and Trips for a great day out!

Merci à toute l’équipe, nous avons beaucoup apprécié le tour de l’île en bateau que nous avons pu faire grâce à eux. Nous étions deux, n’ayant jamais conduit de bateau à moteur auparavant, et leurs explications et démonstrations concernant la navigation et la sécurité du bateau nous ont permis de nous sentir parfaitement à l’aise pour aller où bon nous semblait pendant la journée. Mention spéciale pour le gentil mail quelques jours après avec la carte détaillée de notre itinéraire, tracée grâce à la balise GPS du bateau 😉 Had a wonderful experience thanks to Panos Boats and Trip ! It was our first time driving a boat and we felt very confident after all the explanations and demos they gave us.

For our last day in the island we decided to rent a boat, after checking lots of companies we did it in Panos. The friendly lady that we met in the beginning did all the difference. The didn’t have availability for the day we were needing and she “made” us to rent a bigger boat only because her sympathy! The took all the time to explain us all about how the boat works and we had an awesome day. By the time to go back to our hotel our car runned out of battery and we asked Panos for help and considering it was his rush our he helped us ! Thank you and thank you to all your team!!

As we have decided to go around the island, I emailed them and swiftly received an answer with pricing and other information. Girl at the reception was very smiley and polite. Service is very professional and boats are in very good condition (though don’t expect to have a brand new boat). They’re better than hire boats on the other islands, from my experience. A bit high petrol consumption, but as I haven’t checked, I can’t complain. If you want to be sure, please get involved in measuring, guys is very helpful and will assist you in any way. If you never rented the boat before, I will highly recommend to start with Panos Boats, you will have the best day ever.

There are many boat rental companies in Paxos, including 5 in Loggos where Panos Boats are based. We went round many of them getting prices and details of their service before choosing Panos Boats because their prices are reasonable and their service, particularly training and safety aspects, is fantastic. If you haven’t hired a boat from them before (and don’t have a powerboat licence) then you have 45 minutes training by a book and videos and then a 15 minute lesson on the water before you set off. The training is excellent and is really helpful before you start. All the boats have full GPS tracking and Panos and his crew do monitor the boats’ progress, we saw them come out in a rescue boat when they noticed that a boat that some people had anchored whilst they had lunch in a taverna was dragging its anchor and about to disappear into another rather rocky bay! Chris and the other staff on the reception desk are very helpful and tell you about the weather and what time you need to clear the Western coast each day. We hired boats from them for 4 days and had a great time, going round Anti-Paxos is highly recommended.

We picked Panos boats as we wanted to rent a boat, like most places in Paxos you hire the boat for the day. Our email was replied to very quickly with prices and availability and we booked a boat for the following day. We went down to Laggos for 9am and we had a book to look over with helpful instructions on the Do’s and Dont’s and also videos to watch again explaining things (which is great if you are a novice). We had a lovely day and were unlucky enough to get our anchor “stuck” – despite trying the “How to un stuck your anchor instructions we had been given) but a quick phone call to Panos and because the boats had GPS we just had to give him the name of the boat and he knew exactly where we were and he came out and he went in to the sea and got the anchor released! It made us realise how good a system it is for anyone that got into any difficulty! or had an emergency of any kind! We took towels, chilled water and camera with us Also don’t worry about what shoes/sandals to wear as you just have bare feet while on the boat. And also the boats are suitable for all ages! A very enjoyable experience all round! Thank you 🙂

Just returned from a wonderful day on one of Panos’s hire boats. We had pre booked a boat with a longer rear step ladder, due my wife’s injured knee. We arrived at 9am and were both given booklets containing all the safety information and when we had read those, we were given a video to watch. You could not fault the safety instructions and the advice regarding where it was not advisable to take the boat after certain times of day and explanations of areas of rocks just under the water level. I had previously hired a similar boat in Kefalonia, however felt that I would like refresher as it was a year ago. We were the taken out with one of the staff members to a small Bay where we practiced using all of the controls, then using the anchor. We then dropped the staff member (sorry we didn’t ask your name, but you were excellent) back at the jetty and set off on our anti-clockwise journey around Paxos, going via Anti Paxos. We popped into Lakka then ventured into Achai and Ortholithos caves as we travelled up the west coast.

We saw he Kampala bridge and blue caves before taking the boat over to the beaches of Anti Paxos. We moored up for swimming off the boat and a snack. We journied back to Paxos stopping at Mongonissi. A really helpful member of staff helped us moor up at the Monganissi Beach restaurant. We stopped for a lovely lunch and to enjoy the harbour setting. After an hour we set off back up the East coast towards Logos, stopping at Gaios, Kamini, Kipiadi and Kipos. Our return was exactly at 5pm and the staff helped us moor and bring all our odds and ends onshore. The lovely receptionist/office manager had the necessary paperwork for us. We paid for the boat by credit card but paid for the fuel cash. Because of my wife’s knee injury we had taken a larger boat and that was 90 euros for the day and we had used 20 litres of fuel and that was another 38 euros. A great day, lovely helpful and friendly staff, good fun but also we felt safety was taken seriously. If you are thinking of hiring a boat, don’t hesitate.

There were no blaring announcements and no loud music, just a fantastic comprehensive tour of these two beautiful islands–in and out of caves, beautiful bays, near stunning villages and lovely beaches, with opportunities to swim off the boat and off the beach. It cost us each only €28 for six wonderful hours, and was worth every cent. The crew is great. I recommend this cruise very highly!

On an island where every day each experience surpasses the other how is this to be exceeded? Swimming from Erimitis beach had already exhausted tje gasp factor. Well this is it; Paxiot passion, citadels that can only visited with permission, icons, soups, Assumption festivals, donkeys, education, tradition amd heritage only hint at the range of conversation added to which is the great care for the enjoyment and safety of tje passengers. Then just , as it can’t get any better, wine, food amd the best sunset imaginable. Don’t miss this experience but when we come back next year we are sp keen to immerse ourselves in the passion for the history and heritage of your magical island.

We rented a 30 hp boat beginning of August to go around the island, to see the beaches and caves on the west coast, which are otherwise not accessible by car. We never operated a boat before, but with Panos’ tutorials (folder and touchpad videos) and his demonstration on the boat we were easily able to navigate and steer the boat to visit the beaches most interesting to us. We had a very nice day and also learned a lot, feeling more comfortable to rent a boat on another island! Panos and his crew were very helpful, we had a fantastic day and best of all they sent us our GPS route the following day.

Best spannend om een boot te huren terwijl je nog nooit aan het roer van een boot gestaan hebt . Het uiterst vriendelijke personeel van Panos neemt iig de tijd om alles goed uit te leggen . Ook wordt er gedemonstreerd op het bootje hoe het precies in zijn werk gaat en ga je eerst samen met 1 van de medewerkers een stukje varen . Wij vinden het een must do en hebben een paar dagen erna nog een keer een bootje gehuurd . Om Paxos heen varen is echt een beleving . De verschillen tussen west en oostkust zijn onbeschrijfelijk . Natuurlijk mag anti Paxos dan niet ontbreken 😉 Bij Panos organiseren ze ook boot excursies . Ook deze zijn echt super leuk interessant en niet massaal ( max 30 personen )

When on holidays professionalism is what makes the experience unforgettable… Panos offers that to the extreme. Perfectly maintained boats and speed boats ,kind stuff which are always willing to inform and assist . We rented a speed boat and the support of the stuff with the “donuts” and the water skis made us feel as we are “obliged” to relax and enjoy and they will figure out everything… Most important the “conductor” of the hole thing, Panos, which tried in all ways to make us feel comfertable and welcome. He is a bit of an easy going surfer without making discounts in luxury and safety. Thank you Panos and all the crew you have there surrounding and supporting you.

Eu e minha família, incluindo 2 crianças passamos um dia maravilhoso a bordo de um barco lindo, grande, confortável e super estável em volta das ilhas PAXOS/ANTIPAXOS. Nosso skipper era o Gerasimos que conhecia bem os lugares, nos informava os nomes das praias, caves, super bom piloto. Pedimos para parar algumas vezes para que pudéssemos nadar…Desde a reserva do passeio até o dia mantive contato por email com equipe (Chrys) e fui super recebida, atendendo meus pedidos e sempre respondendo rapidamente.

We booked the trip after seeing the board outside the office. The tour around the island was relaxed and we enjoyed chatting to other passengers. The cliffs and caves on the west side are spectacular and definitely worth the trip. When we got to Anti-Paxos most people headed for the beach and tavernas, but we decided to be a bit more intrepid and set off to explore the interior of the island. It was hot and uphill on stony paths – so if you’re going any distance take water with you. We didn’t see anybody else until we got close to the next beach, although we did see a lot of closed up houses with vineyards and even an old rusted shell of a Ford Cortina. On the return boat trip up the other side of Paxos we stopped off for another swim. All in all a fun day out.

Like many we chose to hire a boat to go around Paxos and Antipaxos one day during an extremely windy (by Greek standards fortnight). Fortunately we pre-booked (advised) for a less windy day and were able to enjoy it. They are not the cheapest BUT for your money you get a FULL SAFETY BRIEF, further instruction if requested, the knowledge your progress/course and speed are being monitored and an email detailing your route(s) sent to you all included in the price. It is this reassurance of safety monitoring for which I am happy to pay the little extra. This is a family business that is tech’ savvy. Their website gives all sorts of useful information other than purely boat-hire and trips. The service is friendly, helpful and multi-lingual. This is an unstinting recommendation.

On our recent holiday to Paxos my partner and me and friends of ours arranged a two day charter of a very capable almost brand new off shore RIB from Panos Boats and Trips. From the fast response to my initial enquiry to check availability to being picked up in Gaios by one the team and taken to Logos to collect the RIB, the very detailed induction and on board tuition the whole experience was fantastic. Over the two days we explored the caves on the west coast of the island, swam in the crystal clear blue waters of the beaches of neighbouring Anti Paxos and visited Parga on the mainland. Without a doubt this is the best way to see the beautiful island of Paxos. Big thanks to Panos, Chrysopigi, Alex and all your professional team, you made our holiday a very special one and we will be coming back. Pete, Sue, Jeanette and Steve. PS. Your mission statement says you aim to be the best at what you do. In our opinion you are. Thanks again

We hired a small speedboat from here for two days. It was very resonable compared to other hire companies and their briefing was very safety focussed. You watch a presentation on a tablet, view potential stop offs along the coast on a wall map and get guidance from one of the staff actually on the boat during a short trip around and about the harbour. The welcome was first rate, despite them being very busy, they made you feel that you were important to them. Jovial and pleasant even to a customer that was just blatantly rude, first class service! We really enjoyed our two days and managed to get all round both Paxos and Anti Paxos Islands, with plenty of swim stops along the way. Lakka is a must and don’t go too fast around the west side of the island, there are lots of little bays and caves that you can easily miss if you’re in a rush. All in all if you are thinking of hiring a boat whilst in the area you will not be disappointed with them at Panos, highly recommended!!

We were hugely impressed with Panos Boats. I contacted them in advance and Chrisopigi was so helpful via email helping me to select the right boat for us. He arranged for us to be met in Gaios where we were staying, taken to Loggos to pick up the boat and shown where we could moor overnight in Gaios. The safety briefing in the office on IPAD was excellent and we were then taken out by Panos to demonstrate we could use the boat safely before heading of with a map, dry bag and cool box. The following day the weather was mixed and we received a text in the morning advising us where it was ok to visit. We were tracked for safety via GPS the whole time. All was good with the boat, we had great fun and would not use anyone else on Paxos! The pricing seemed competitive. A lovely touch was an email when we got home with a link to download a map of the route we had taken.

Firstly – wherever you hire a boat from it is an absolute must-do activity when you visit Paxos. You get complete freedom to visit everywhere on Paxos and Antipaxos at your own pace, stop off anywhere you like for lunch and even find your own secluded bay to anchor up in and have a swim. It’s not too difficult to learn all the basics you need even if you’ve never done it before. Secondly – when you do hire, Panos and the team will make a brilliant choice. Having previously used these guys in 2014, I emailed in advance to pre-book 3 days. The email conversation was well managed and very friendly. Made us feel more like friends than customers. When we arrived the refresher lesson on the first morning was carefully managed and covered the things I needed with all questions answered – certainly not a rush-job. On days two and three we were led straight to our boat and able to get on with our day immediately. The boats were clean, comfortable and looked in a lot better shape than some of the hire boats, particularly the ones in Gaios (we stayed in Gaios – worth the trip to Loggos for a better, safer experience I think). They come with dry bags for getting your stuff ashore when anchoring in a bay and storage/cool boxes to keep your provisions cold and dry. We also had to change our plans due to illness and we were able to swap one of our day’s hire with no fuss or problems at all. We also got an email the morning after our final hire day with our gps routes attached to show where we had been. A little thing but again very thoughtful as a little memento/to share on social media. Finally, there is one thing that is very clear throughout all our dealings with Panos and his team – they take safety very very seriously! It’s a hell of a responsibility to send 26 boats out in the open sea every day, most of them skippered by unlicensed, inexperienced people. The safety briefing is very clear and informative, they are very clear about sea conditions and weather risks; if there is too much risk they won’t let the boats go – disappointing for customers, but it must cost them a fortune when it does (safety first). All boats have GPS and are monitored throughout the day from the Loggos office, have life jackets and an alarm button to alert the team if you need help. As tourists we are quite rightly told to be very careful with things like vehicle hire, extreme activities, water sports etc when on holiday – these guys get that and do not cut corners. Happy boating!

We (2 adults and 3 children aged 11, 14 and 16) rented a 30hp boat during our holiday on Paxos this August, and so glad we did! We actually rang them before we left home to book a space as had been told it may be difficult when we got there as they get so busy (when we were there, a few people came in asking for boats but they were fully booked, so glad we did it in advance!) We were greeted by a smiling and friendly lady who gave us a folder with safety and drving instructions for the boat and asked us to read it. It took about 15 minutes but you must read it carefully. After this, we were given an IPad to watch a safety and instructional video which was also very useful. Next, my husband went out to the boat with an instructor and was taken for a 15 minute lesson around Loggos harbour to get a feel for the boat and driving it. All the boats look well maintained and are clean, as well as being equipped with life jackets, flares etc. We got in and were able to set sail. There are a lot of boats around Paxos at this time of year, so it was good to have had the instruction. We decided to stay on the east coast of the island as the water on the West coast can be a bit unpredictable, especially in the afternoon when it definitely becomes more choppy (though I guess that depends on your confidence levels). We had a fabulous 6 hours on the water, stopping here and there to swim and snorkel and see the beautiful island from the sea. We got back to Loggos and moored at the harbour where someone was waiting for us to help tie the boat up. A big thank you to Panos boats for a friendly, professional and safety conscious service! We would definitely recommend.

A couple of days prior to flying out to Paxos I thought it wise to get our boat rental booked. Needless to say it came as a big surprise that all Loggos based boat hire companies were fully booked, and had been for months. Tip number 1: Book sooner rather than later as places fill quickly (Panos Boats are quick responders to emails). Luckily for us I received a follow up email from PB to say that they could rent us their ‘Baby Boat’. So with a sigh of relief and emergency over we were good to go . And then even better news the one day availability changed to five days so we took all five which were to be spread out over our two week holiday. So the first rental was a one day affair to be taken on day two of our holiday and boy what an experience. On arrival into their office and as a first time ‘Captain’ I was given a booklet to read followed by a tablet showing a series of how to and safety videos to watch. Tip number 2: Allow an hour for this folks and there’s quite a lot to take in. Once done here it was straight into the boat with Panos for a hands on training session in the bay. Ten minutes later and we’re good to go. Six hours later after what was a glorious day exploring the amazing coastline and beaches of Paxos and Antipaxos (Voutoumi beach has a sand beach rather than pebble) we sailed back into port feeling exhausted. Tip number 3: Don’t underestimate how physically (and mentally) exhausting sailing can be, what with standing up and ensuring you’ve anchored up correctly. Once off the vessel PB have to calculate the amount of fuel used for the day (see sat nav image given to us by PB). So for a full round trip around both Paxos and Antipaxos this came in at £53 (on top of the £80 boat rental price). Tip number 4: Factor in fuel costs which at the time were 1.9 Euros per litre. Given that this was their cheapest boat it can be an expensive day out when combined with a visit to the wonderful (but pricey) Taverna on Voutoumi Beach. Tip number 5: Don’t wait in the office for PB to finalise your bill, rather spend half an hour over at Roxi bar overlooking the sea vista. We did end up cancelling the middle three days sailing and took one last day at the end of our holiday which we all thought was just enough. Five days would have been a little too much in our opinion. Providing PB can re-rent your boat you’re released from your financial commitments but be aware that you may be obliged to pay for any booked rental periods that cannot be re-rented. In conclusion I’d say that PB are the go to guys who operate in a professional manner with your total safety and well being in mind and a boat trip or two is a MUST.

Un très bon endroit pour louer des bateaux, même sans avoir le permis! Il est possible de faire le tour de l’île + antipaxos, le prix étant très abordable (pour un petit bateau ) de 50e + le prix du fuel (assez cher ), mais ça vaut le coup de le louer pour une journée et découvrir la beauté de ces deux îles !

A boat is a necessity if you are holidaying in Paxos because access to the beaches adds so much. Panos provided us with two boats, both in very good condition and also provided a nightly refuelling service which saved a lot of time. Very pleasant people as well. We will use them next year.

We had a wonderful day boating around Paxos and Antipaxos. Family of five (three adult sized children) fitted onto the recommended boat which was easy to use and comfortable. Impressed with the friendly staff, briefing and the back up. If you want a safe day on the water then rent a boat from Panos.

A boat is a necessity if you are holidaying in Paxos because access to the beaches around the island. The boats are in good condition. All the mileage is tracked via GPS. Panos will provide a full training whatever your level of experience. We rented 3 times during our holiday one boat and we enjoyed every moment. You have missed Paxos if you have not rented a boat.

We have rented boats on Paxos before but the service and care provided by Panos and the team exceeds all previous experiences. We particularly felt that the safetly advice was excellent. A novel use of GPS is provided by merging the exploration of the island with Google Earth, enabling us to relive the experience once the trip was over. We would highly recommend Panos Boats.

The tour of the different beaches of Paxos itself is of little interest i think but it was nice to stop in places for a swim and i really enjoyed having 3 hours on Antipaxos (sand beach and good restaurant, a bit crowded). The staff was nice. We skipped a swimming stop (because of the weather maybe?). A fun day. Compared to other boats we saw on the way, i’m glad this one is rather small (25 people).

We have been hiring small boats to look around the coast of Greek islands for 29 years. In that time we have never had such a well equipped boat, good instructions on using the boat and what to do in the case of emergency and attention to detail. We had a great day and then the lovely Panos showed us where we had been by using his gps. Panos, Chrysopigi and their helpers are all very friendly and helpful. Strongly recommended.

Fantastic day trip from Loggos. Wonderful safe boat and friendly captain .. excellent steering into caves and coves. Magical feel of the whole island visiting the 3 harbour towns and special rocks, arches, caves and beaches. Water clear and blue for swimming. Homemade yogurt and honey for morning break and iced tea and ouzo in the afternoon. Left for 3 hours on the divine sandy beach on small island of Antipaxos. Heaven with sunbeds and sun umbrellas and great Tavernas on the beach .. summer only. Thankyou for a great day

We hired a small boat for the day, as we only had a little boating experience. We explored the island by sea and had a fantastic day out visiting quiet little coves to snorkel. Very easy to find a cove of your own, so many to choose from! The company were fantastic, felt very safe taking one of their boats, plenty of checks and instruction before, very professional. We stayed in Gaios but would definately recommend travelling to Loggos to rent from Panos, fantastic service. Thank you for an awesome day out!

We spent from 10:30 to 5:00 on the Lefkothea boat visiting various spots around Paxos and Vrika beach on Antipaxos. The boat was full with approximately 30 people (we’d arranged the trip through our holiday rep at €29 each and were told there were 35 people maximum). It did not feel overcrowded and we got good views. The boat went into caves and at two points we stopped to have a swim. Yogurt with honey, iced tea and ouzo were provided at various points and the crew were friendly. We were given 3 hours at Antipaxos to have lunch and enjoy the beach. We went to Spiros Taverna for gorgeous food ( corgette balls, stuffed aubergine, stifado, 1/2 litre of wine & two cokes for just under €40) and free sun beds. This seemed a much cheaper option than hiring a small boat for €60-80 then having to pay for fuel which can be from €35 upward.

This is the second year in a row we have used Panos, and both times have been flawless: – Panos and Chrysopigi are very polite and useful, providing detailed instructions before heading off – very clear health and safety/boat handling advice, and potential routes for us to take – The boats are in fantastic shape – seemingly new and we had no issues – The sights which can be visited with the boats are incredible (see some photos attached) with not only Antipaxos and the towns Lakka and Gaios; but also the west of the island Caves, Cliffs and Arches I have hired both the 30hp Ericusa, and the 175hp Triton; and both boats were fantastic. Fuel was reasonably priced, and the rates were very good considering the quality of their boats. Following the trip, we were sent an online dynamic map of our entire day trip, with all the spots we stopped at etc. This was great to receive and look back on – very nice bespoke feature! For both couples and families, I highly recommend Panos – I will be returning in the future 100%

We hired a self drive motor boat from Panos boat hire in Loggos, we initially were going to spend one day on the water but after our first day we booked the boat for a further five days. The staff at Panos hire gave us an initial lesson and very concise information about what to expect weather wise and how to handle the boat in relation to visiting the 3 main ports on the island. We were travelling with an 18 month old boy and Panos hire provided us with a very good life jacket, and the staff were amazingly helpful with us when it came to loading a buggy and the usual bags of baby stuff onto the boat. Any questions we had were answered in detail and we felt completely safe and comfortable that any problems would be dealt with professionally and quickly. The boat we had was amazing and gave us no problems, having spoken to other visitors to the island we found that one other rental company had been having problems with their boats ( as we had a small child on board with us I a glad we chose Panos hire ). It may be luck of the draw but Panos seem to have a well maintained fleet of boats. I would certainly recommend Panos hire to anyone visiting Paxos and particularly if you have children, their staff are amazing, boats are faultless and they most definitely made our holiday. Thank you everyone at Panos Hire. X 👍❤️

The office is on the waterfront in Logos harbours. Panos and Chrysopigi are available from 9am every morning for an early pickup you can get the most from your your hire. All the mileage is tracked via GPS and the fuel is worked out from the total distance which is a fair process as it is impossible to tell how much fuel you have used without refuelling which is impracical and not a holiday activity. Panos will provide a full briefing on and off the water and is aways on his mobile when you need him. The boats are well looked after and come with all the maps and diagrams you need to navigate the busier harbours. You have missed Paxos if you have not rented a boat. The distances are not far and there are plenty of restaurants and secluded beaches that you would miss otherwise. I rented in Corfu a couple of years ago and the staff were so unfriendly that I dreaded picking up the boat in the morning – Panos is an experienced mariner who will put you at ease so that you can get on the water safely whatever your level of experience. I used an ICC (international certificate of competence from the RYA) to hire a 175 HP rib that cruised at 50kph. 20 mins to Anti-Paxos in reasonably flat water made the best beaches very accessible and I was able to take my 2 year old twins very safely.

Vous ne pouvez pas rater Panos sur le port de Loggos : un grand blond aux cheveux bouclés. Son agence est très sérieuse : nous avons payé 70 euros pour la location d’un bateau sans permis. (hors fuel, comptez 30 euros de plus). Après une documentation complète sur les règles de bon sens à suivre en mer et une formation rapide sur le bateau, nous avons profité de tous les bons spots indiqués par Panos et son équipe. Le bateau est géolocalisé pour plus de sécurité. Et vous recevez le soir même un mail retraçant votre périple, avec un gentil petit mot d’accompagnement. On recommande vivement Panos.

My partner and i wanted to see the islands around, Paxos and antipaxos, without joining the crowded tourists cruises, we found the guidance, care and love of the people to the sea, rented a small boat to sail in between the islands, together with cooler that the company supplied, and very important guidelines, roles and very important recommendations. Bring shoes (if you want to stop somewhere to eat or walk around, lots of water, ice, snorkel equipment, some small food (from the bakery around of the corner), underwater camera, and go. It’s the best way to see those beautiful islands, by yourselfs.

Really good day out. Book from travel agent near car park. They do a couple of trips. Boat leaves from the quay at loggos a couple of times a week for a really good value trip around the island, time for swim in a lovely cove on east side of island and 3.5 hours on anti paxos to sit on beaches, tavernas or a bit of walking. Return on the west side with another 15 minute swim possible.

Balade matinale en comité restreint (6 pers) sur les hauteurs de Lakka. Magnifiques points de vue au travers des villages et du maquis de Paxos. Visite d’une église et arrivée dans une crique méconnue et déserte. Lefcothéa est sympathique, joviale et généreuse. Un encas avec des spécialités locales est offert sur le parcours à l’ombre d’un figuier. Moment très agréable et très détendu, idéal pour découvrir Paxos.

Over the last two years I have done several boat trips with the lovely Lefcothea and they have always been excellent. It is a small family company and they are passionate about Paxos and its history. Tips are well informed re the history and also great fun. On the recent “sunset” trip I did with them even I tried(and failed miserably, but it didnt matter) the Greek dancing, a few glasses of wine obviously helped.

A fabulous must do day. On our third visit to Paxos and we couldn’t wait to go on the Lefcothea again. The west coast has high cliffs with many beautiful formations and caves and the boat is small enough to go inside some. If the sea conditions are good, the boat will moor up and you can swim in the warm crystal clear water right into a cave. You are then taken over to Anti Paxos for 3 hours on a most stunning sandy beach. Not be missed.

Probablement la meilleure société de location de bateaux de Paxos. Les bateaux sont récents et très bien entretenus (ce n’est malheureusement pas le cas partout), un GPS est à bord pour vous localiser en cas d’urgence et le patron et son équipe sont très Pros et restent à votre écoute. De plus ils offrent un plus grand choix de bateaux avec si vous avez un permis mer des moteurs plus puissants et plus sécurisants. Bref vous pouvez y aller en toute sécurité pour profiter des plages carraïbéennes d’Antipaxos. Pour info le vent se lève très très vite autour de Paxos (particulièrement en fin de journée) et la petite balade des vacances peut vraiment tourner au cauchemar avec un tout petit 30 CV ! Prenez au minimum un 50 CV et plus si permis. Enjoy !

Friendly atmosphere from the moment you step onto this boat which grows as the trip gets going. Scenery is stunning as you sail from Loggos to Gaios, stopping off at the 2 islands to visit the church and then the fortress on St Nicholas island . Then back on board to be met with a delicious mezi of Greek food, and wine. To eat and drink whilst sailing around the island to watch a beautiful sunset just off the blue caves. Once the sun has set on comes the music and the Greek dancing begins. All in all a fantastic night out, one not to be missed

We hired a 250hp boat (for which one of you has to have a valid boat licence) because we had two members that were afraid of the water. The most fantastic day was had by all. Beautifully maintained, great engine, very quiet and smooth, magnificent ride. We went all over Paxos, AntiPaxos and beyond. I cannot praise the hire company enough. Immediate service, quick and efficient explanation of the mechanisms and I gather, all day GPS tracking to make sure we did not get into trouble. I really recommend a day out in these big boats, they are so much more fun and comfortable than the normal 30HP boats in which one can only “putter”. One drawback is the need for a licence.

The sunset cruise was a highlight of last year’s holiday, so we decided to repeat it and once more it was a fantastic evening. Fascinating walks around the two little islands, then off to the west coast just in time to catch an amazing sunset, accompanied y wine, mezedes and dancing. A good night was had by all! It goes out every Saturday evening from Loggos, with a pick up stop in Gaios. The Anti Paxos explorer trip was a first for me and it was really good to see the relatively unknown coves and caves around the “other” side of Anti Paxos without all the many boats that visit the west coast of Paxos itself. The guided walk to the lighthouse and the wonderful views from up there were an added bonus and certainly give you a feeling of being an explorer! The Explorer trip takes place each Friday.

Its not only hiring, its also service and quality @ Panos! Having a boat company myself for years I can tell you wht goes well or not on a boat. While we decided to go on holidays on Paxos for its nature and beautiful bays I should rent a boat to do some exploring. Looking around for a decent boat rental, prices were not the only matter. When you go boating on the coast you need decent strong boats with a good hull that makes your boating comfortable when there should be some waves… Well Panos has that range, and not only the simple boats that just keep you above the water, but quality and performance boats that makes your boating at Paxos an adventure that will be loved by your wife, kids, friends… AND safe! Bringing your boat to the local bay or harbour where your holidays starts, speaking clear English to explain you all the do’s and dont’s… you should not look further!! Great guy, great services and correct price for each boat! (Belgium visitors)

There was no free boat to rent in Gaios, so we went to Logos, to Panos boat hire agency, we had an opportunity to hire a boat for reasonable price, comparing to prices in Gaios.

All the boats are GPS tracked so they know where you are which could be useful if there’s a problem… it also stops you nipping over to the mainland!

Went on the Sunset boat trip. What a night visited both the little islands on which Lefcothea tells you about the their history and is very informative. Then sailed round the island to watch the sun set. We were served mezze and wine (lots of wine). The sunset was beautiful and we also treated a full moon that night so got the best of both worlds. On the way back Lefcothea got people up Greek dancing, which was hilarious and good fun was had by all.

This is a great boat hire outfit on the Waterfront in Gaios. Katerina is the front of house and Leftis is the man who deals with the boats both are delightful. They have a range of boats from small outboards to their 100HP “Alma Libra” Which I hired for a week. This was a very tidy boat easily capable of 30 kts (you will need anICC and RYA power boat level 2 certificate to hire this boat) Boats all come with saftey equipment and you are give a very though instuction by Leftis before being allowed to sail away. All in all a delightfull outfit. So if in Gaios and you want to hire a boat – look no further

It’s been 6 years since I wrote my previous review of a trip on Lefcothea and we’ve enjoyed quite a few day trips since then, but last night was our first ever sunset cruise and it was absolutely fantastic – definitely the highlight of this year’s holiday! The two little islands that we visited are both so beautiful in their own very different ways – the lovely little church on Panagia with its icons and stories of the traditional Saint’s day that is still held there each year and the ruined fortress on Ag Nicholas, which is far bigger than I had ever inmagined and still has the ancient rusting cannons in place to repel invaders. Then the sail through the narrow channel between Moggonissi and Kaltsonissi to watch the sun slowly go down on the western horizon – pure magic! The wine flowed and the mezes were delicious and on the way back, Lefcothea (the guide, not the boat!) even managed to persuade my husband to get up and join her in a Greek dance – something I’ve not been able to do in all our years together! An amazing evening that will stay in my Paxos memory bank forever – highly recommended!

We took this trip in early June 2015, and although the island was not busy and the trip not at 100% capacity the team at Thalassa travel and the boat Lefcothea did not work at anything less that 100%. The trip itself should be a definite recommendation for anyone visiting Paxos or Loggos, words and photographs alone cannot convey the unspoilt beauty of the coastline, caves and many bays on the islands of Paxos or Anti Paxos. The boat Lefcothea is clean, quick and the crew are very chatty and knowledgeable of the spots that they visit. All in, a great day for a great price with friendly and knowledgeable people.

The boat is named after one half of the couple who own Paxos Thalassa Travel-she and Panos are both very friendly and thoroughly helpful. They have a variety of boats of all sizes to hire in Loggos and also provide cruises round the island. We thoroughly enjoyed two cruises – the first a day trip to view the glorious coastal scenery and swim from the boat in the wonderfully clear waters in and around the brilliant blue caves, followed by a visit to the tiny island of Anti Paxos to enjoy swimming from the white sandy beach and buy lunch from a choice of Tavernas there, followed by another short swimming opportunity in a secluded bay on Paxos on the return trip to Loggos.

The second was the Sunset Cruise, which provided the opportunity to visit two more tiny islands, one with an ancient beautifully decorated church, part of a previous monastery and then nunnery, with outbuildings and a light house, and the other island provided a walk through pine trees to a hill top fort. These visits were followed by wine and a buffet meal on board and Greek dancing performed by Lefcothea partnered by willing passengers before the boat literally sailed into the sunset……to watch the sun slipping between the multi hued clouds to slowly sink into the deep blue sea is a breath taking and unforgettable experience. Utterly magical moments to treasure forever!

We enjoyed our one week Paxos holiday enormously (which was also arranged through Thalassa Travel) staying in the beautiful Levadi apartments a very short walk from the pretty town of Loggos and its harbour. Paxos is a small very beautiful tranquil island with friendly welcoming people. We left very regretfully….we intend to return in the Autumn to explore some of the many walking routes mapped by Mr Bleasdale (rather like Mr Wainwright of the Lakeland Fells).

The days we take the bots out are the highlights of our holiday, great fun and a fantastic way to reach gorgeous beaches and watch for dolphins which we have seen on a couple of occasions. A must do!

Wonderful day out, definitely worth every penny! Going around the island is a great experience along with the swim stops. Very friendly and welcoming crew, would definitely recommend to any Paxos visitors. Lovely way to spend the day, including getting to spend time on the beautiful island of Antipaxos.

I would definitely recommend a trip on the ‘Lefcothea’ we have now been on this a few times as Everytime we go we see something new! We went this time with our two children who were extremely excited. They loved looking at the places they’d been and deciding where we would go next. My 6 year old even swam off the boat with his dad and snorkelled! A fabulous trip, with a fabulous crew!

We decided to spend our last day on Paxos taking the round the island trip on Lefcothea. It was a fascinating trip with beautiful views and three stops for swimming including there hours on Anti Paxos for lunch, sunbathing and another swim. It was a laid back trip – not too crowded with a good young man in charge. I would recommend this as a way to see the west coast of this lovely island

We are really glad we did this trip, we had planned to do the Anti Paxos trip and not the one which includes going all round Paxos too, but the weather was too windy and it was cancelled, so we opted to go the next day on the fuller trip and it turned out to be really worthwhile. Beautiful blue water in caves and rock formations, great little beach coves and then a few hours on Anti Paxos too. Would recommend.

The boat wasn’t to full on the day we went, so we had plenty of room to move round .It was a lovely sunny day so we got to see the blue caves. It was a wonderful way to see the island .We enjoyed the swim stops and the time we spent at Antipaxos. The skipper and young lad were really friendly and explained the places as we were visiting them. No lunch is provided so you either have to take a picnic with you , or buy your lunch at the Tavern at Antipaxos.

C’est notre hôtel qui nous a conseillé de faire le tour de l’île avec Lefcothea… Nous ne l’avons pas regretté ! Si vous allez à Paxos, vous devez absolument faire le tour de l’île et cette agence est idéale. Le bateau est agréable et il n’y a pas trop de monde. Nous avons fait plusieurs arrêts durant lesquels nous avons pu sauter du bateau et nager dans les eaux cristallines abritées par de magnifiques falaises et des grottes. Trois heures d’arrêt à Antipaxos ! Un peu trop chaud en août et bondé de monde mais vous pourriez vous croire aux Caraïbes tant l’eau est claire ! Avant de terminer l’excursion, l’Ouzo vous est servi sur le bateau !

We spent the whole day from 10:15 to 16:30, from Loggos to Antipaxos and around Paxos. We found the trip to be perfect in terms of duration and number activeties. We enjoyed diving in the blue caves, and snorkling in Antipaxos. The boat is the perfect size, not too crowded, and not too small. Some of the other boats on the island was looking a bit shabby, but this was in good condition and clean. Also a big thanks to the frendly crew, making this the best experience so far..

Agree 100% with these reviews! but have you considered hiring your own boat off Panos? You are given a demonstration and instruction manual etc. and they can track you on their sat nav back at base, if you have an emergency you just press a button and they will ring you. We have been on Lefkothea and loved it but so much more fun to pack a picnic and go at your own pace and just go into a cove and overboard for a swim when you feel like it. Last week we even went as far as AntiPaxos by ourselves, you are given lots of advice re. Wind direction, swell etc. all v.professional and reasonable too. Returned yesterday and already missing it, can’t wait to go back, azure water like no other. Various tavernas all offer free sun beds and parasols should you venture ashore for a coffee, loved every minute of it. Give it a go, you wont be disappointed.

What should we say about our wonderful day with Lefkothea boat? The day started in Loggos where we got to the boat. We spent a whole day with the fantastic friendly crew, stopping for swimming along the blue caves around the island. We were all the time safe by admiring the art of nature…The crew gave us information about all the sightseeings that we wanted to know and offered us refreshments during the day. Then we stayed at the Anti-Paxos for lunch and ouzo for about 2 hours – the White Sand beach was the best experience ever! We believe that is one of the best ways to spend a day or more of your holidays, we will never forget the moments on the Lefcothea boat ! Definitely we will try it again!

Having never been to Paxos before, this was a great introduction to the island. The boat probably takes 30’ish people so not crowded and cost (i think) €54 – the trip we were on went round the north coast (Lakka), back down the west coast and its caves are, across to Antipaxos for a beach stop, and then up past Gaios and home to Loggos. Crew were great and there were opportunities to swim on the way. My only criticism was that perhaps the couple of hours stopped on Antipaxos was too much – we weren’t equipped for walking and there are more interesting beaches in Loggos itself. I would have preferred more time around the caves, but it’s a minor criticism and possibly unavoidable – after all Paxos is a small island! Booking was easy, lots of room on board, complementary ouzo was nice 🙂 Definitely give it a go. We did it before hiring a small boat ourselves so we knew where we wanted to spend the day.

This was one of the few boat trips available on Paxos. The day I went the sea on the western side was very rough (2 people were seasick), the boat tossing up and down with spray coming off the waves. So we were not able to go into the caves or near to the cliffs. The itinerary was slightly changed to cater for the conditions, so instead of landing on Antipaxos we stopped at the sandy beach of Monogissi, where there was a taverna and a small bar. Before returning to Loggos we stopped in a bay nearby and glasses of Ouzo were handed round, making a party atmosphere. The trip was excellent value and a good day out.

Abbiamo trascorso otto giorni su questa isola dal mare incredibilmente caraibico, straripante di ulivi, cicale, gatti, e case come la nostra di proprietà ‘ di un’ italiana ravennate trapiantata a paxi da 30 anni immersa in un uliveto adiacente la bellissima kipos beach. Da non perdere il paesino di Magazia ed il suo bar dove, tra artisti e vecchi del paese seduti ai tavolini , vengono serviti aperitivi greci a base di grappa locale, olive, feta e pane caldo, yogurt locale immerso in frutti e gherigli di noci sciroppate. Vicino al bar discesa per Eremitis, strapiombo della incredibile parte ovest Dell’isola, che fa da contralto a quella che butta ad est piena di spiagge con mare verde azzurro e limpidissimo. Poetica Loggos, bella Lakka, visita obbligata ad Antipaxi, costa meno delle Maldive ed è’ più’ vicina. Alla prossima

Great day trip out. Set off at 10.30am and journeyed around the island with stops along the way going into the various blue caves and an opportunity to to swim in one of the coves. Then over to Anti-Paxos for a 2 hour stay (go in water shoes or something you don’t mind getting wet as there is a short paddle to the beach and the rocks can be sharp). Then over to Mongonissi for a bar stop. Great way to see the island and also if you don’t fancy spending a whole day over on Anti-Paxos. we were also given a DVD which goes through where you have been, etc which is a lovely reminder.

We enjoy it so much that for the last couple of years we have gone on the boat trip twice during our holiday. It is a great boat, the scenery is stunning and the swimming excellent. Highly recommended. The only thing I would add that it is not suitable for people with serious mobility difficulties because of the state of the jetty (or lack of it) at Anti Paxos

Left Loggos at 10.30 returned at 16.00 a trip worth every Euro!! Into Caves, swimming off the boat, refreshments, all the sights that everyone talks about, then a stop over in Anti Paxos wonderful lunch in a Taverna, swimming off a white sand beach in turquoise waters, snorkel the rocks, best boat trip ever experienced.

Really enjoyed the trip around Paxos and to Anti Paxos on the Lefcothea. This was a great way to see the scenery on the west coast and get right up close to the blue caves where you have the opportunity to jump right off the boat for a swim. Good value for money too.

A brilliant day out and way to see around the island. You get to see the caves and stop for a 15 minute swim. Orange juice was served after the caves and before heading to anti-Paxos. We enjoyed 3 hours on the island before heading back with another stop to swim followed by ouzo. Boat is clean and feels safe. Staff are attentive and friendly.

After watching a couple receive half an hour’s tuition on hiring a small boat we decided to go on this boat trip instead it was brilliant . Jumping off the boat and snorkelling in the turquoise waters made me feel positively like Jack Cousteau . The scenery was stunning and I felt the overall trip was extremely good value for money. The one thing that might have improved the trip a little bit would have been a bit more of a commentary pointing out what we were looking at. However that’s a very minor criticism .

One of the highlights of our 2009 holiday on Paxos was a boat trip around the island and to Anti Paxos. We went on the boat Lefcothea, which moors in Loggos harbour and can be booked at Thalassa Travel on the harbourfront. We hadn’t done the trip for quite a few years, but we found that the format hasn’t changed much in the meantime – it’s still a fantastic day out for only €20 each! We left Loggos harbour at about 10 am and sailed north to Lakka, where we headed into the harbour for a short look around. Then off round the northern tip of the island and down the west coast, sailing right inside some of the caves.

Ortholithos Rock and Tripitos Arch are two of the most photogenic places on this leg of the trip. There’s a 20-minute or so stop in one of the coves where you can swim in the clearest, bluest water imaginable and then on to Anti Paxos. One thing that was different this time was that on Anti Paxos, Yiannis moored up on Voutoumi Beach instead of Vrika. It was the first time we’d ever been to that beach, so it made a nice change and counted as another new Paxos experience. First thing we did when we got there was have a long, cold drink at the “ground floor” taverna, then we spent about an hour swimming, before making the trek up the hill to Bella Vista taverna for lunch.

It couldn’t be more accurately named, because the views are fabulous from up there and our mixed seafood platter lunch was almost as good! After lunch we headed back down the hill to where Lefcothea was waiting for us and set off back to Paxos. On the way back we passed through the channel between Mongonisi and Kaltonisi islands, with the big Agnelli villa on the left and the tiny church of Ag Spiridon on the right. Then up the east coast past Gaios and Panagia Island, before stopping for a final swim (and complimentary ouzo) off Kipiadi beach and sailing back into Loggos harbour at around 5pm after a wonderful day out! There are more photos of the trip on my general photos page..
