Flying Dolphin Erato - Cancelled due to technical fault ...

Has broken down this morning ...

It's a shame, because many planned to visit the islands in the last three days of Carnival.

Erato had departed and was south of Skiathos heading towards Volos when it suffered damage to the left hand side engine. The boat continued to Volos on slow speed, where the passengers were disembarked.


The boat was impounded and will not sail again until repairs are completed. Passengers will continue their trip to the islands via Proteus in due course.

Not a great start to the big carnival weekend ...

There is some discontent with the service recently, as Erato is the only link with the mainland in the mornings. Patients requiring to get to the mainland for appointments and hospital visits, have been seriously inconvenienced - Due to bad weather and technical issues this winter.

Update: Sundays sailings in both directions are cancelled
