By sea

Sailing the Greek seas!

Greek ferries are of a high standard. A great many shipping companies offer their services with a modern and luxurious fleet. All Greek islands are linked to the mainland, and there is a regular service between them too, so one can enjoy a delightful and diverse island-hopping holiday.

The Greek fleet, consisting of all types of vessels (passengers ships, ferry boats, hydrofoils, etc) operating on domestic and international routes, has undergone major refurbishment, thus ensuring travellers speedy, reliable and enjoyable travel.

Aegean and Argosarosikos islands and Crete are linked mainly with Piraeus and Rafinas port.
Ionian Islands are linked with Patras, Killinis, Igoumenitsas and Astakos port.

More info about Piraeus port,  Patras port and Igoumenitsa port.
