Information
Skala Th ra or Skala Fira is the main harbor and where the cruise ships call. It is not really a harbor but a quay. There is a lot swell into the bay. The shelter is not great. It is too deep here to anchor so, yachts tie to one of two buys and go stern-to. The problem here is that when a boat wants to depart, the boats on the outside have to untie. Under these conditions it is hard to leave your boat unattended and go sight seeing. It may be preferable to use another anchorage. Going up to the town one can either take the cable car or the more picturesque mules. Local legend has it that the souls of "bad people," when they die, become these mules that ferry the tourist up the windy path.

Vlychada, Santorini The marina provides alongside berthing in secure conditions with water, electricity, WCs and WiFi network included in the (June 2009) mooring fee of 20. The harbour is the only well protected harbour or anchorage on the island. The harbour tends to silt during the winter storms and dredging operations are virtually constant to keep the depths in the harbour at around 2.5 to 3.0 meters. Currently (June 2009) dredging operations are taking place in the outer harbour and the principal berths available for visiting yachts are alongside the two outer arms of the semi-circular quays, where rafting up is usually necessary. There is sometimes space for a few yachts in the inner harbour (either on an anchor moor or alongside), but it is often full of local day charter catamarans and fishing boats. The "marina" is about a 20 minute drive from Fira. The marina office or the restaurants on the cliffs above can arrange for car or scooter rental. Both the restaurants are very friendly to yachtsmen and serve good food.
The marina of Vlichada is the only port where you can safely moor the yacht during storms or leave the yacht unattended.
Important: the approach is rather treacherous with two submerged ancient moles blocking the most logical way in. To avoid this and other obstacles: steer a course of 45 towards any point between the chimneys and the blue hotel till you see the entrance of the marina at 90 .

New petrol station near Santorini on the island of Thirasia located very near the port. Excellent service by the new owner Iakovos Zorzos. Perfect for boats who are needing fuel and much easier than refueling on the island of Santorini!

Dear Mrs/Mr, I'd like to make a reservation for my 50 feet sail boat in your marina for between 9th - 11th of jun. Can i learn do you have available place for berthing? I have a questions; last year i came your marina with my same sailboat but i didn't enter your marina because we stranded when we were entering in your marina. Our sailboat centerboard 2,50 cm. We tried two times for entering but we didn't be succes. Could it be reason for the tide?
