Hi Augie,

I have been asked if the Flying Dolphins have started up from Kavala town to Thassos Town. It was said to start in July 2018. Is there any news on it

    It's a fast ferry service to Kavala City from the Thassos Town which ceased running and is said to be starting up again which would make it easy to visit the City itself

    Good morning Delboy! :)

    I saw the same blog post, and I also read a news article on a local news website, both claiming the flying dolphin will operate starting 11/03. This isn't the case, though.

    After observing no flying dolphin in Limenas yesterday and this morning, I called the people in charge and they informed me that the information we read online was incorrect. They aren't sure when the dolphin will operate but apparently they are preparing.

    If I hear any news I will let you know!
