We went to Nesebar to get this ferry to Sozopol where we were going for a few days on Monday 9th September 2019. Our money was taken by the cheerful young girl at the desk and we were asked to return 15 minutes before the ferry left.We did and joined a number of others to be told there was a bad forecast and the ferry would not be sailing. We were instructed to go to the office to get our money back which we duly did. Then we asked about alternative methods to get to Sozopol but the young ladies in question didn't seem to know nor were they prepared to check the Internet to look for alternative travel.My wife and I adjourned to a nearby restaurant and checked up? I also phoned the guest house in Sozopol where we were going and the owner suggested we get a bus from Nesebar to Burgas then change for Sozopol ( Platform 5). This we did with no problem and is probably a better way to travel than the fast ferry and at less than half the cost. What I can't understand is if the weather forecast was not good for sailing why was this not picked up an hour before travel rather than taking our money then having to disappoint people. Seems a strange way to run a business.

Book return journey from Nessabar to Sozapol online. Hotel in Sozapol reservation FOR overnight stay. Returning to Nessabar by ferry .Had booked 2 oclock ferry. Paid at the office . Boarding was at 1.45. Noticed while waiting that there was only about 15 passengers also waiting. At approx 1.55 we were informed that the ferry would not be sail because of the weather. Absolute nonsense. Conditions were perfect. All passengers were very annoyed. In my opinion the ferry did not sail because of lack of passengers. When I suggested this a very irrate crew member became very defensive. Will not be using their service again. I would have not been annoyed if they were upfront and honest that lack of passengers was the reason for not sailing. Bad service.

We had a very enjoyable trip with this company to see the beautiful town of Nessebar. Definitely, recommend taking a day to travel this way. (My only gripe: I do recommend that the company tidies up its social media and clarifies its locations and telephone numbers to reduce confusion!)

We had been staying in sunny beach for 5 nights and was moving onto sozopol for 2 nights! We had got information and different types of transport to get to sozopol from sunny beach which would be about an hour and 20 min journey. We were ment to be heading for sozopol on Sunday, we decided to take the fast ferry from Nessebar to Sozopol , we had visited Nessebar on the Friday 2 days before we were going to sozopol and specifically went to the fast ferry office on the Harbour in Nessebar and asked them would there be a fast ferry going to sozopol to nessebar on Sunday at the scheduled time of 6pm the lady said yes absolutely and that there was no need to pre book just to arrive on Sunday 30 min before departure time. On Sunday we got a taxi from Sunny Beach to Nessebar which cost 30 lev Walked to the Barbour to the fast ferry for a big ya to be met with a big notice on the dot saying the ferry was not operating today (Sunday), asked the lady in the office and she said there was no ferry going that evening , she was no way helpful or apogetoc considering we had went tjrtr in Friday to make sure it would be going on Sunday! Overall terrible experience and had to pay for a taxi for one hour and half to sozopol which was not very cheap at all! Strong advise against using this fo of transport if thinking of traveling to sozopol from Nessebar!!!!
