We enjoyed a faultless trip to Hydra. All staff, from the ticket office to the crew are friendly and relaxed. We decided on a business class ticket and glad we did as the seats were very comfortable and you have a nice outlook from upstairs. When the boat stops you can go out onto the deck to take some photos.... More

Very reliable ferry service to and from Hydra. Our only complaint was that the company did not provide more detailed information about parking and finding the port - my husband and I were driving in in our rental car and had a bit of a hard time - definitely allow yourself a bit of extra time. It seems as though... More

Good experience in travelling from Piraeus to Hydra - staff really helpful and Catamaran was still running in stormy seas. Anyone who leaves a rucksack with passport etc. unattended on a ferry (previous review) needs to think a little!!! Hardly the fault of the 'carrier'.

I've travelled at least 10 times from Piraeus to/from Aegina or Agistri on the flying dolphin service over the last few years on holiday and it has always been an excellent service. Unfortunately last Sunday (October 11th) the service at 09.50 from Agistri was cancelled due to poor sea conditions and that is perfectly understandable. However, getting the only available... More

This boat was fast and clean! The food is very overpriced but found the staff helpful and attentive. We upgraded to VIP for 2 Euros and it was well worth it.

The Ferry transports were good and timely. They are a bit hectic boarding and departing, kinda feel like cattle waiting for the gate to open but the got us to our destinations. If you can get business class it is more comfortable. Food and drink available and ATM on board.

The trip that I took was to go from Athens to Mykonos, and it was the worst nightmare in my life! I got my things stolen inside the ferry, where the staff said to put my things there because he'll keep his eyes on it, on the luggage room. Someone stole my iPad and my passports and almost everything inside... More

Took the HS4 from Oia to Mykonos. Having never experienced a high speed ocean ferry, I was impressed by the process. It was like cattle boarding the back of the vessel. After stowing the luggage, we headed up to the seating deck. We hadn't even found our seats and the boat had already departed. It was fast, efficient and smooth.... More

We took the Highspeed 4 from Athens to Santorini, and then the Highspeed 6 from Santorini to Mykonos, both times in VIP. Baggage storage is a little dicey down in the cargo hold. Wind was quite strong both time, however the boat cuts through the waves and is quite stable. Book via the Hellenic Seaways website rather than 3rd party... More
