What does the "one-way route" mean?
Explore the most famous bays and beaches, as well as hidden gems of Thassos island on board of sailing boat or catamaran!
“Highlights of Thassos” is a 7hours shared cruise, that is designed and being operated exclusively by North Sailing. We start in Limenas town and finish in Limenaria, or the opposite, depending on the boat’s location. Thus we are doing the one-way route, so you don’t see the same place again on return.
We follow the east side of the island preferrably, however, the west route is also possible (subject to weather/wind conditions).
What is shared cruise? How big is the group?
Shared cruise means that you don’t hire a boat privately for yourself and there will be other passengers too. Minimum number of passengers in the group is 8 and maximum – 22. We have different boats in our fleet and, according to the size of the group, we do the cruise in a suitable boat size. For example, catamaran has more space and can accommodate more passengers.
Where does it start? How do I get there?
“Hightlights of Thassos” starts either in Limenas or Limenaria, two ports of Thassos island. We pick you up in the morning and bring to the port of embarkation. In the afternoon, the transfer from the port is also provided accordingly. One day before the cruise you will be notified about the pickup time and place for the next morning. Therefore, it’s necessary to let us know your location (please write it in the checkout notes).
If you don’t need a transfer, here are the meeting points for your information (we will contact you after booking to let you know which of two cities we will start the cruise on your chosen date):
