Although it is the fastest way to get to Gavdos, I do not recommend it for a day trip. On the way to Gavdos we had overbooking so the boat was delayed 30 min until the captain decided who would stay behind. On the way back the same thing, too many people to return and only those with a ticket and that arrived 1 hour before departures boarded, some people was left behind! The ship was moving a lot on both ways, I do not recommend it to people who gets seasick easily. On top of all that the crew was smoking inside the cabin!

Visited three beaches on Gavdos as well as the harbour and saw the Giant Chair at the southernmost point of Europe, naturist swimming in gin-clear water and swam ashore to sunbathe on the sand among driftwood shelters.

Gavdos Cruises offers a day transfer to Gavdos for 40€. Tickets can only be purchased at the boat between 9 - 10 a.m. (cash only). Departure was punctually at 10.10 o'clock. When we arrived in Gavdos-Karave, I asked the captain about the transfer to Tripiti (the southernmost point), which was advertised on the flyers. He looked at me as if he knew nothing about it and told me to walk (8 km each way). Fortunately, when the boat arrives at the harbour, there is a bus waiting to take visitors to Korfos or other beaches. So I went to Korfos (2,5 € per trip) and from there I walked to Tripiti (3,9 km). Departure from Korfos back to the harbour was 16.15 o'clock. So good to do. At 17 o'clock the boat drove punctually back to Crete. Attention: It is not controlled whether all passengers from the morning are back again on board. Therefore be punctual. Also monitor the Facebook status of Gavdos Cruises due to short-term changes. Gavdos Cruises is a transfer to Gavdos and back, but nothing more.

I'd looked at Gavdos for 20 years and never managed to get there: previously, by ferry, you'd have to stay overnight. Gavdos Cruises' highspeed boat gets there in an hour and you have nearly five hours on the island, which is surprisingly pleasant - low, rolling hills and quite a bit of greenery in the north. A bus meets the boat and serves several places, returning in time for the boat's return at 5pm. The boat is very comfortable and the ride there very smooth though on the return it can be choppy as the afternoon wind gets up. A very efficient operation to an island that will certainly provide peace and quiet! A memorable experience.

After an absence of 12 years since we last visited Gavdos we took the 70 minute crossing to return again. We were fortunate that the sea was like a millpond both ways. There is seating for 54 in the main cabin though if people bring luggage that might reduce capacity. There was bench seating for another 20 or so at an open area at the stern. All run very efficiently.
