Trying to look at ferry times for 23rd September from Skiathos, but not having much luck, are we too early or do they finish by then?

Hey and welcome dlcm:-) Ferry schedule changes usually occur around mid month.. keep an eye out at www.gtp.gr/ as well as www.openseas.gr/ Service most definitely exists.. after all, ferry service is needed for locals wanting to get to the mainland and back.. the ferry from Volos is year round .. on 9/23 there's Hellenic Seaways Flying Cat 5 scheduled to depart at 4:15p for Skopelos :-) Happy planning.. and EnJOY!

Hi all

We are travelling on 4th September for 2 weeks on our first visit to Skopelos and really looking forward to it.

The only problem we have is our return ferry. I have been trying to book the early (07:55) flying cat on 18th September for the last 2 weeks but it keeps saying 'not available'

Does this mean the ferry is full and there are no further seats?

I've emailed Hellenic Seaways twice with no reply.

I could do with knowing for certain as we will have to book the day before ferry and hotel in Skiathos if this ferry is full.

Its been mentioned, there may be a problem with the web based companies booking system, You could try calling one of the Ferry offices, either in Skiathos or Skopelos to reserve your tickets ...
