Sailing with Dolphins

Tuesday we left Skiros by 8:45 in the morning for he 38 nautical mile sail to Stafylos Bay back on Skopelos. The day was hot and uneventful with wind finally building enough that we could sail for a few hours. The highlight was seeing a school of dolphin headed south cross us as we headed west. They took a slight detour and came to play for a few minutes in our bow wave.









Soon after I spotted something that looked like a sailfish breaching the water. I saw it twice with others spotting once. It was confirmed by Jim (who was sailing far ahead of us) that they thought they spotted what they believed was a sailfish breaching the water as well. 7 or so hours later we arrived in a very pretty Stafylos Bay. Clear waters. Cliffs. Ample anchorage. A beach with umbrellas and a local taverna provided us places to snorkel, swim, eat, and sun ourselves.
