For a true experience of Greek culture head to the beautiful port town of Amaliapolis, and take a trip to Skiathos with the fabulous Captain Kostas, and the rest of the Elisabet Cruises crew.
The cruise stops at Skiathos town, for about 2 and a half hours, before continuing on to Koukounaries Beach. Sometimes he'll also head to Lalaria, or stop in a secluded cove.
Their departure time has been clearly set by the sea police, so DON'T BE LATE!!!!
Because this is a private boat, it costs a little cheaper than the average ferry, about 40 Euros, or 62 US dollars. Prices may very though, so check with them before booking. Because of their popularity it is adviced that you book a few months in advance, unless it's offered in your vacation package. They offer a variety of different cruises to different islands, including day drips, and night cruises. Which ever one you choose, I promise you, it will be an experience you'll never forget. If you do book, try to get on the Victoria. The fabulous Captain Kostas provides a variety of fun activities! So whether it's a waterballoon toss, swimming in the Aegean, sipping on Metaxa, or traditional dance lessons from the captain himself, I guarantee you'll have an AWESOME time!!!! I highly recommend the Sirtaki dance! Even if dancing is not your thing, just standing off to the side and watching, is truely amazing! And the music was just AMAZING!!!! You will immediately become emersed in Greek culture, and it will leave you with a cultural experience you'll never forget!
Captain Kostas is a true Greek sailor, and just an absolutely AMAZING and FUNNY guy, who is passionate about showing his passangers a part of Greece that they may never experience!
A trip with Captain Kostas will leave you with once in a lifetime experiences, and memories you'll never forget!
