When you’re visiting a group of islands whose number exceeds 200, you’re going to want a boat. It’s the only way you’re going to appreciate the beauty of the area and step your foot on as many different ones as you want.
There are many boat rental options but the best idea is to rent a motorboat in Cyclades. While sailing can be great fun, you need experience and it’s a time-consuming, sometimes tiring task. If you rent a motorboat in Cyclades you can simply point it in the right direction and enjoy the wind blowing gently through your hair.
Whether you want to skipper it yourself or let someone else do it for you, you’ll be impressed by the space and luxury onboard our motorboats.
It should be noted that you need a license if you intend to rent a motorboat over 30hp. You should also be aware that the Meltemi winds around the Cyclades can reach force 8 in the main summer months, July & August. If you’re not an experienced sailor or feel you may get seasick, it’s worth booking your boat rental for May, June, or even September. Not only is the wind gentler, there will be less tourists to share your adventure with.
Another thing you must consider when visiting the Cyclades is that there is a huge amount of history in these islands. Delos, the center island, is steeped in history and mythology. It’s reputed to be the birthplace of Artemis and Apollo, as well as being one of the most important commercial centers of its day.
Today there are just 14 inhabitants on Delos but it’s an awe-inspiring island that needs to be seen to be believed.
