Boat trips from Skala to Ithaca, Zante etc and cost also bus

His has anyone had a day boat trip from Skala to Ithica? Once you arrive do you need a car or to take a bus to see places of interest at Ithica?

Any other day boat trips from Skala worth doing? Costs would be grateful also please.

Did anyone use the bus service is to Poros or any other destinations. Length of journey and costs would also be good please.

Thank you any advice info appreciated.

Just back from Skala and did the trip to Ithaca on Argo. Possibly one of the nicest day boat trips we have been on. Relaxing and not crowded. Plenty of room to sit on deck in the shade or sun. Crew were excellent particularly with the kids. They provide biscuits sandwich melon and glass of wine over the course of the trip. One swimming stop going out to Ithaca and two on the way back. The stops were in secluded bays and the water warm and crystal clear. Had 1.5 hours on Ithaca which was about right to wander around the lovely port. Definitely recommend at €30 each

Hi,

The boat trips from Skala go round the island usually stopping at two ports as well as the swim stops. If you want to see the interior there are a few choices.

1. If you have rented a car then you can drive to Sami and either take the ferry across or take this tour in an airconditioned minibus.

2. Get a coach trip from one of these companies.

Bus timetables here. Click on Skala and then download the PDF. It shows fares also.

A new innovation this year is that all the bus stops are shown on google maps. You can use these to find out how long the journeys take. To Poros it takes about 20 minutes.

There is also a water taxi going between Poros and Katelios calling at Skala. This years details are apparently (so I have been told) on a noticeboard outside the new supermarket on the front.

Hope this helps.

Bob
