In the last couple of weeks Skopelosnews has had conversations with many people about the boats going to and from Skopelos and why the boat schedules are announced so late. We can only guess why this happens but it seems that the frequent questions and reservations that visitors make/ask have convinced the boat companies that they needs to start sailing earlier. Yesterday we published the itinary from Flying Cat 6 starting on the 10th of April. The boat would sail from and to VoLos and the Sporades.

Today we can show you a schedule that starts earlier, from the 31st of March until the 11th of June. (Matthias you have a boat!) If you click on the arrow on the right you will see the schedule in the following months.

The last couple of days the flying dolphin had difficulty travelling because of mist! Many people missed connecting flights and had to travel over land to get to Athens. What a shame we have such a volatile boat schedule. Keep checking with the boat ticket offices for sudden changes and hopefully you will arrive on time at the place you need to be. Aqua ferries has publish their boat schedule for the Myrtidiotissa ferryboat. For all boats keep looking at http://www.openseas.gr, click on the English flag
