Why are RIB boat rentals so popular in Crete?

The versatility and inherent stability of the design make RIBs a popular choice for many sailors [and for tourists to rent RIB boats]. [RIB boats] have excellent load capacity thanks to the added buoyancy of the sponsons and stay afloat in the event of the hull being compromised (rightboat.com).

Are RIB boat rentals good for fishing, diving and snorkelling?

Fishing and Diving: Those interested in fishing and diving will love their RIB boat. Due to their high versatility and maneuverability, you’re able to get out deep quick.[…]RIBs are ideal for the military due to their lightweight nature, high maneuverability, speed, and reliability (hysucat.com). Most of all, when you dive for snorkelling from a RIB boat you will find it very easy to come on board again due to the softness of the material on the balloons. This is mainly for those that are more adventurous and want to climb up the balloons and not the ladder;) Moreover, renting a boat in Crete with us will allow you to experience fishing and spearfishing like a local. You will learn all the best techniques and practices to catch the fish you have always wanted.
