|Foreground: one of the boats for cruises to the Blue Grotto and around Ro island.
|Daily boat cruises around Kastellorizo island, to the Blue Grotto and nearby Ro Island start around 20 euros per person. Private and group bookings are also negotiable. There is also a water taxi service to good swimming and snorkling spots such as Agios Georgos Island, Plakes and Cape Stefanos.
These posters advertise the Barbara and Saint George Boats, which normally depart at 9 am. We were assured that there are later departures for day trippers who arrive on the ferries from Turkey at around 10.30 am.
