We did this 2 years ago, 2 weeks Skiathos & 6 nights Scopelos. Got the ferry to Skopelos town as that's where we were staying. From memory took about 90 mins.

Depends on the wind on the day whether you will need your seabands. The ferry was quite big & stable & we were on the upper open deck. My hubby gets quite sick when a boat rolls from side to side, but he was fine.

We hired a car for a couple of days in Skopelos to see more of the island. The back streets in town are worth exploring.

Are you on a package ? If so the tour company organise the crossing . Other wise the car ferry , I.e. Skiathos Express is great as it’s large , open decks, walk around., you get to see Skopelos as you arrive. Check out timetable at www.gtp.gr . You can click on the initials to see type of ferry for each crossing.

Ferries tend to head across to Skopelos Between 11.30 am to 12.30 pm sea cats will head back to skopelos from around 4pm. And later.

1 - To Skopelos town 13:20, 13:35, (~15:35 Erato*),19:00. To Loutraki 13:00, 19:00, 20:15. * if it's running. As you can see a long wait could be required depending on your flight timings. Check locally on arrival.

2 - Very short.

3 - No you definitely won't need those, the crossings are no problem in those islands.

So it could be a wait if your plane is on time ....you will be shown where to leave your luggage and you can have a wander around Skiathos harbour..so travel light

I must admit we were wondering the same - booked with TUI in Sept for first week in Skiathos and second week in Skopelos so have no idea of timings etc. or even whether it is ferry or seacat.

Well doing it that way round you can please yourself really ..if you prefer a different ferry just could tell the tour op and make your own way over. They will advise on arrival .
