      • My first time travelling Greece as well as using Hellenic Seaways to the islands (ferry changed to Minoan Lines few days before my departure and I got email to confirm on this). A wonderful experience.

      Great boat trip
      • We booked the Ferry from Skopelos back to Skiathos to catch our flight home. So much nicer on this boat rather than the flying cat we came out on, mainly because they had a lovely big outside deck and we could enjoy the gorgeous views much better on what was a perfect sunny calm day. Still only a 30-45 minute journey and a perfect end to our trip, thank you
