We took the flying dolphin for a day trip to Hydra from Piraeus Port. It was quick and comfortable and ran on time.

Ruined our trip. Ended up getting a refund. Had to abandon car after first of four legs. Spent an extra €750!to correct our trip. Safety poor. Quality of service a joke. Don't bother with business - they let anyone sit anywhere, Toilets disgusting. If you can - use Blue Star.

We recently traveled to Hydra from Piraeus using Hellenic Seaways Flying Dolphin service. Unfortunately we experienced extremely rough seas during our trip which caused us to arrive late to our destination. I understand that the seas are an uncontrollable phenomenon however we were seated in the forward cabin and as a result experienced the worst of the turbulence. Again this... More

I caught this high speed ferry from Santorini to Mykonos in September 2014 and found them to be on time- very reliable. I think this is a good thing as you hear so many ferries late or cancelled for whatever reasons in Greece-not enough passengers etc so all up it was a very large ferry and very comfortable main areas...

I bought a return trip for my wife and myself on the Flying Dolphin from Piraeus to Aegina on 27 Dec 2014 planning to return that afternoon and was told by the agent in the Hellenic Seaways booth at Piraeus that the last trip back left Aegina at 4pm. No problems getting to Aegina but when we returned at 3.30pm... More

I've been a guest at Hellenic Seaways during many trips to Greece over the years. Last June, I boarded "Highspeed 5" from Santorini to Mykonos. A lovely and smooth trip. The ferry departed Santorini's port on time and arrived in Mykonos after only 2h50m. I bought tickets for the so called "Vip Area", seating right in front one of the... More

Pay for at least business class if not VIP seating. IT WAS SO WORTH IT. This was the most efficient public transportation experience I have ever had. The boat pulled up and unloaded and reloaded in less than 7 minutes. I timed it. I'm not sure they ever actually came to a complete stop so don't dawdle! You will board... More

Riding on a flying cat 4 from Santorini to Crete, the ferry was sitting at port early, but not letting anyone on while the crew sat on and in the ferry smoking cigarettes, with clearly marked no smoking signs all over. As we get on, the crew tries to hurry everyone along by yelling and expecting you to understand everything... More

Our first port of call after Athens is always Hydra - love the place - no vehicles, just donkeys or water taxis, or walking to get around. Used Hellenic Seaways online in Australia to pay for tickets and print voucher with barcode. So simple to arrive at Piraeus Hellenic Seaways office and hand voucher over, scan it, and receive tickets.... More
