Ferry or Boat Services from Skiathos to Allonissos?

Hi,

Trying to get to Alonissos for the day mid September, from Skiathos to just catch up with some friends for lunch. However after the 8th Sept where you may catch a 10.35am out and 15.45pm back the Hellenic Seaways Ferry seems to cut back its services for the winter?

Would anyone know if there is another service (heard of a Fast Ferry Service but don`t know name) or as to whether private boat companies do day trips from Skiathos to Alonisoss?

Thanks in anticipation......

Local newspaper - efimerida sporades reports ...

The shipping company HELLENIC SEAWAYS, from Wednesday, September 4

grants DISCOUNT -40% to piece back Sporades -

Volos - Sporades speedboat of FLYING CAT 5.

information from local agencies of HSW.

=============================================================

Clearly they are overpriced and are now feeling the pinch, from the ANES competition. HS have just taken Artemis off the route, so now are finally forced to reduce fares.

Well done ANES ...
