“Marvellous trip to Lindos”

Rizos Daily Cruises Discovery Boat
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: Visit the stunningly beautiful village of Lindos by Boat. On the way to Lindos the boat passes the magnificent beaches of the East coast and ends up in scenic Lindos, at the little church of Saint Paul. There you will have three hours free time to explore the ancient Acropolis of Lindos, stroll through the maze of winding alleyways, or relax on the three golden beaches Lindos has to offer. On the way back our magical refreshing journey continues by stopping at Anthony Quinn's emerald bay for a swim. And then back to Mandraki Harbour in Rhodes.

We spent an awesome trip Rhodes town to Lindos. The two stops in the Anthony Quinn Bay and at the Monastery of Tsampika is beautiful and a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Swimming under the huge rocky walls of the bays is unforgettable. The boat is large but I recommend you to arrive to the boat 30 minutes prior departure. We arrived 5 minutes prior and had seats only in the boat. The views are stunning. The drinks and the foods are quite expensive on the boat - 2,80€ for a small fruit salad, 4€ for a sliced watermelon, 2,50€ for a medium sized sandwich. Expensive but very tasty;) I totally recommend this tour!

We booked directly with Rizos after walking along the Rhodes Mandraki Harbour and talking to the lady who was on the stand. Our tour company offered the same trip at nearly double the price where the only difference was transfers to the harbour from the hotel. We paid 20 euros for adults and 10 Euros for children which I feel is really reasonable to a full day out.
I have read reviews saying you can pay extra to reserve a sunbed, which we was not informed about so not sure if they still do this - If they do, I would recommend doing this if you want a sunbed as they go very quickly!!! Boarding is from around an hour and a half before it departs - Get in early if you are travelling at peak times and want an outdoor seat/sunbed as it gets very busy.
The boat is a good size and has 3 floors with a mixture of Sunbeds, outdoor seating and indoor seating (bar area is air conditioned). There are modern and clean toilets with plenty of room to get changed. A fully stocked bar which serves soft and alcoholic drinks as well as sandwiches and snacks. The prices are very reasonable although they will allow you to take your own food on board if you prefer.
The journey down was around 2 1/2 hours sailing time, with a 20 mins stop in a lovely location where you can jump off the boat and have a swim. This was the same coming back.
You get around 2 1/2 hours in Lindos which is a beautiful village. The time went very quickly but allowed us a walk to the Acropolis and a quick lunch before returning.
Thought the whole day was lovely and very reasonably priced.

The boat was a delight to be on. Spacious and comfortable- totally different to others. Drinks reasonably priced and staff all friendly and helpful. Stopped at breath taking locations to swim. Even saw a dolphin swimming alongside the boat! Lindos was very hot but well worth a visit. Beautiful and a memorable day out.

Booked up for the daily cruise to Lindos! Very good value for money! Great views from the boat and it stopped at 2 different places where you can swim off the boat (floats available for children which I thought was great!) Spent 2 1/2 hrs in Lindos which was enough time to take in the scenery! Staff were all very friendly on board and a good range of drinks and food we're available at reasonable prices!! Would definitely recommend, boat looked a bit more luxurious compared to some of the other tour available on harbour!

Very helpful man selling various trips offering good value days out to various Islands (we went to KOS for only 38 Euro Each).
They use large fast boats that are well equipped too.
A special mention to the ticket seller for his help and recommendations.
