Janette's Husband is the glass bottom Boat owner's cousin. I believe the owners name is Jonio (Not sure of spelling tho).....
Hope this helps.....
Just wondered if you had got sorted regarding the glass bottom boat.
My son had his wedding in St Pauls bay and afterwards hired the boat. IT WAS TRULY WONDERFUL. For me, I personally think it was the icing on the cake, so to speak....perfect. I am not sure how they hired it but they had a wedding co-ordinator who too was wonderful and so helpful. If you want to know more I can tell you such a lot about what they did 'extra' that stood out from the other wedding that we saw at a later date.
Oh...forgot to mention that on the boat, they had champagne (only drawback on this was that my son and his fiancee had to take out 25 (that was the amount of people in the party) plastic champagne flutes....which I personally think could have been included in the 'boat package' price...but no...they had to take them over to Rhodes. On the boat, they also had made a CD of all their favourite songs and the highlight was when they stood up on front of the boat to Titanic theme!!! Sounds cheesy but it looked beautiful....it was six thirty in the evening and the weather was 38 degrees...and it was truly, truly beautiful. My son had told me what to expect but I never expected it quite as lovely as it was. Any more info that I can help you with...dont hesitate to contact me.
However, please bear in mind that this was OUR experience. As with anything no two experiences are ever the same. JBB
I can confirm that for the last 3 years we have booked a private two and a half hour cruise on the glass bottom. We always book this direct with the owner Jonio. He takes us out from pefkos beach (the next resort along from Lindos). We cruise along the coast and stop off in Navarone bay. (Yes, where they filmed the guns of Navarone). A beautiful spot with shallow waters and turquoise sea.
We then cruise round the coast to Lindos and the Acropolis. He also takes us into St Pauls Bay. Then we return along the coast to Pefkos after a swim in the caves.
For this he charges us 300 euros.
If you search for "friends of pefkos" on google and go into the msn website you can click on "general" on the links to the left of the home page to access discussion forums with plenty other brides to be!!.
If you click on the "useful links" on the left of the page. you can click on the e-mail address for the Maria's apartments/ supermarket. Through this you can e-mail Jeanette who is Jonio's sister in law. She is most helpful and also uses the friends of pefkos website to offer help to holiday makers looking for advice. She would be able to help you book the boat privately. And probably a lot cheaper than you were quoted.
Hope you can get everything arranged soon!!

Are you having a wedding planner organise it. If so they will be able to advise, if you are using a holiday rep they should be able to tell you as well.
