No matter where you are staying on Paxos, you must find the time to rent a small motor boat. The views, cool air and fabulous feeling, make it an experience to remember and by far the best way to see the coastline of Paxos.
Boats of the following sizes can be rented: 10hp,15hp,2 5hp. Boats with an engine larger than 25hp can be rented, but they require a speed-boat licence. You should be aware that you cannot take hire boats to some of the more spectacular coastal regions in the north of Paxos. This is because the water can be unpredictable and there are many rocks above and below water.
# No licence is required unless you want to hire a speed boat
# Remember that you have to pay for the petrol used. A normal day of cruising would probably use about 25 Euros worth.
# You cannot use the boats after dark.
# The boat owner will usually ask for your boat to be returned at around 6.00pm after each day out.
# There is no charge for mooring at any of the jetties around the island.
# The boats are steered either by a tiller system or a steering wheel. The latter cost more.
# It is possible to rent a boat for the minimum period of one day, but as with car hire, it is cheaper for a longer period.
