Amazing experience

This was one of the best experiences we have had. It was our first time renting a boat and everything worked out smoothly. As beginners the instructions of how to operate the boat were clear and concise. We had a great and adventurous time, where we could explore various locations by ourselves. The boat was very spacious, comfortable, looked good and we felt very safe on it. Moreover, the boat had life jackets, a tracker, depth gauge, radio and bluetooth. We recommend Karolos Rental Boats to everyone who wants to have this experience.

Karolos was excellent at providing instructions and advice on where to take the boat. All equipment was provided. Boat was excellent and in perfect condition, exactly like the photos. A great experience. Met on time. Well organised. Definitely recommend if you want a private boating experience. 5 stars.
