“Beautiful voyage, frustrating end.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Go to Samos by all means. It is a stunning island. Just don't expect to enjoy getting there. The trip itself is fine, a pleasant hour at sea. Bring your own snack and drinks if you think you might want them, because the prices are double.
What makes the trip hard is the arrival. Plan to be agressive getting off the boat, or count on spending an hour in the customs lineup. Those with EU passports will do better, but all others will bottleneck past one lone clerk before escaping.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Boats are small, meaning a rough trip even during average wind, and worse service prone to be cancelled if the wind blows stronger. €65 for roundtrip is overpriced in comparison with similar service between Cesme-Cios, Kos-Bodrum etc.

“Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

We took this to Samos and it was excellent, clean and got us from A to B quickly and efficiently. The views are lovely and you can sit on top or at either side of the boat, there are seats inside with a small cafe as well for snacks, but if the weather were inclement you would not have enough space in there for everyone. It can get a bit breezy so take a jumper if you want. It left on time from both Samos and Kusadasi and the staff were polite as well.

“Nice trip.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

The views from the ferry are stunning! That being said, you can take a boat trip just around and down the coast of Kusadasi for the whole day and 1/4 of the price. Samos is lovely, but simply the ferry ride would be a waste of $ in my oppinon.
