Full description

Depart from the new port of Skiathos at 10:00 AM and make your first stop at the small island of Arkos. Enjoy local snacks and cool juice before the first morning swim on a unique beach. 

Leaving the island of Arkos, the captain sets sail and you will have the opportunity to learn about sailing, try to navigate the boat, or simply sunbathe on the deck. Sometimes you can admire the friendly dolphins which accompany the boat.

The next stop is the isle of Dasia with its blue cave, where you will dive and swim like never before. Afterward will be the perfect time for local snacks on board, accompanied by an ouzu. 

Sail to the west side of Skopelos island, full of beaches with clear blue waters and pine trees next to the sea and an ideal spot for yet more diving and swimming.

The captain will then take you to the beach of Panormos, which is difficult to find and thus very quiet. Swim and sunbathe almost by yourself before a lunch menu consisting of Greek homemade food is served. Plenty of wine and some fruit is offered as a dessert.

Later the captain sets sail towards the island of Tsougrias where you can see a spectacular sunset. There you can swim one last time and taste a sweet delight offered by the crew. Then the trip comes to an end as the boat returns to the port of Skiathos.

The boat ride is also beautiful because you can see places that otherwise would not be reachable. Natalie and the captain are kind and available to various needs, the only thing to specify is that the excursion ends at 6pm and you don't see the sunset as it is written on get your guide. Recommended tour anyway

Our day was amazing. Even if in our opinion the tariff per person is a little expansive, talking about the amount itself, we have to say that the experience is totally worth it and we found it perfect. The boat is super nice and clean, comfy and equipped. The sea was a little shaky but together with the small group and the crew we managed to to everything we wanted avoiding to get in trouble with stomach issues. Darko is a great captain, super friendly and crazy in the good way :)) and well, Natalia, is hard to describe. A smile and an extrovert personality you won’t forget. If you are planning to go on a boat trip in Skiathos, you cannot find anything better than this. Thanks guys, we will never forget you!

Beautiful day on a sailboat with only 12 people. Professional and very nice crew, attentive to every detail. We had beautiful swimming in Skopelos and in beaches not accessible by land. Nothing to do with the proposals that you find at the port with boats overloaded with people. Highly recommended !!!!!!
