A bit late, sorry! We booked the trip in Skala and just opposite where we booked it is his boat, down on the seafront. His boat can be seen in the sea there and that’s where we waited to board.

You need to get the coach in Skala near the supermarket or (like we did if you have hired a car) drive to Poros and get straight on the boat there.
