As you leave the airport you can catch a taxi outside the entrance. Tell the driver you want to go to Mandraki or The Commercial Harbour (see below)-if you tell him you are going to Symi he will put you down at the right spot. The fare is approximately 15 euro.
There are three boats connecting Rhodes and Symi, the 'Proteus' and 'Symi' car-ferries and the 'Aegli' hydrofoil.
The Aegli leaves from Mandraki Harbour in Rhodes New Town, the car-ferries from the Commercial Harbour outside the walls of the Old Town.
You can also catch one of the day-trip boats from Rhodes to Symi from April to October. They leave from Mandraki every day at 9.00am. Be aware that there may restrictions on luggage on these boats.
There will also be connections from Rhodes to Symi on a 'big boat'; an inter-island ferry or one connecting the Dodecanese with Piraeus.
The Dodecanese Express hydrofoil also runs regular services between the Dodecanese islands in season; their timetables are here. These boats leave from Kolona.
