hi everyone,

just a quick question. are they boats you rent out suitable for someone who would not be  great swimmer. when driving near the small beaches can you drive close to edge. i am just a bit nervous.

We have hired the motor boats several times in Arillas and elsewhere in Corfu, they are very easy and safe to use, they can get very close to shore, they have a really shallow draft you just have to make sure that you pull the engine up before you get as shallow as knee deep, the rental company will show you how to do that, there nothing to it. With the engine up you could pull the boat right up to the sand to stop it drifting about. Ifs great fun and a good way to see the coast line. Try a short hire first of all and pick a calm day you will soon get the hang of it. The rental company will give you a life jacket if you are unsure. Hope this helps.
