Travelling to Skopelos

Here are the different ways of transport you can use to get to Skopelos:

Ferry boats:

  1. This includes conventional boats that take cars,
  2. High-speed catamarans, (or 'Cats' as they're more commonly known), for passengers only,
  3. Hydrofoils (or Flying Dolphins)

Sea cabs

These are smaller vessels that can usually take up to 8 people. They're privately owned and can help with your transport between Skiathos and Skopelos.

Sea cabs are a great way to island hop between Skiathos and Skopelos. If you happen to arrive in Skiathos during a time where there are no public ferry connections, this is how to get to Skopelos.

The price is approximately € 25/person and the savings you get can greatly mount up if you had to spend a night in Skiathos.

There are at least 2 different companies operating from Skiathos to Glossa port and Elios marina. We can recommend Sea Cab, a new company that has been successfully used by quite a few of our guests.

Half the fun of travel is the aesthetic of lostness.
