Among the excitement of last Saturday was the new route taken by the Achilleas. For years the Skyros boat always turned right out of Skopelos to head to Alonissos and Skyros.
As of summer 2016 Ferry Boat Achilleas takes a new Saturday route which includes after stopping in Skopelos, stops in Skiathos and Volos. The ship returns from Volos at 06:45 Sunday.
On Tuesday and Thursday the traditional Skyros – Alonissos – Skopelos route goes as usual.
