    A word of warning: Zante Harbour, Zakynthos, Greece Don’t get ripped off when visiting Zante by boat. When you enter the port there will be some official looking guys waving and directing you to a free spot. They will take your lines, take pictures of your boat papers and let you sign some papers in Greek language. Then they ask for a fee that is almost tripple of the official fee and also sell you overpriced key cards for water and electricity. After you paid, they hand over a business card which identifies them as “Shipping Agents” of the company YCZ, Yachting Club Zakynthos (http://yachtingclubzakynthos.gr/) By signing the Greek language papers you may have officially authorised them to rip you off. They even charged us a 10 Euro “line handling” fee just for taking our lines when we backed up to the quay.

    Bob's comments are over stated I agree. YCZ do take a fee for assisting you in with your lines and they tell you where it is safe to go against the harbour wall out of the path of the commercial tripper boats. It is a daily fee. The dockers' union have a Port fee of €20 which is a one time duty regardless of the days you stay, We paid €20 for electricity and water for our 3 day stay. So expensive for one night and better value for longer periods.

    It is extremely unpleasant to be harpooned by these men in blue Yachting service. To welcome you and receive a mooring, they ask 15 €! It's a real mafia and the leader in blue smart car YCZ is very unpleasant. Then you have to pay the dock, water and electricity in addition to their price. And it's expensive. I will never come back to this port again.

    Il est extrêmement désagréable de se faire harponner par ces hommes en bleu Yachting service. Pour vous accueillir et recevoir une amarre, ils demandent 15 € ! C’est une vraie mafia et le chef en voiture smart bleue YCZ est très désagréable. Ensuite il faut payer le quai, l’eau et l’électricité en plus évidemment à leur prix. Et c’est cher. Je ne reviendrai plus jamais dans ce port.
