Boat hire and trips on Skopelos and Alonissos


Exploring the islands of Skopelos and Alonissos by hiring a small boat is the perfect way to unwind on holiday. Chartering a boat gives you the freedom to anchor and swim in the many bays, beaches and inlets and explore this fantastic archipelago. You will be able to potter around the enchanting coastlines of the islands or reach the other amazing islets that make up the Sporades.

The boats
All boats have outboard engines of 15hp or 30hp, sun canopies, safety equipment and insurance, in conformity with Greek law. Cool boxes to keep your drinks cold and your food fresh are supplied free of charge. The boats can hold from two to four passengers. Petrol is not included.

No licence is needed to hire the boats but if you have no experience you can request basic training.

Terms and conditions

Think Experiences are provided by independent local companies which are neither owned not controlled by The Thinking Traveller and for whom we act only as an agent. Whilst every effort is made to keep the description of every Think Experience up to date, the provider may cancel or amend your experience at their discretion for many reasons including where it considers that there may be a risk to your comfort, health or safety. Some excursions/activities (i.e. helicopter rides, excursions on Mount Etna, boat charter, etc.) may contain an element of risk or require a good level of physical fitness, and, if in doubt, you should contact us so we can put you in contact directly with the local provider before deciding to buy. Please also check that you are covered for the activity(ies) in question by your travel insurance policy.

In acting in the capacity of an agent on behalf of the provider, your contract will be with that provider and will be subject to their standard terms and conditions, and it will not form part of your contracted holiday arrangements with us. Any complaint (including any allegation of breach of contract or negligence) should be taken up with the excursion/activity provider directly. We will do our best to assist you, but will have no liability in relation to the performance of that contract.
