Ferry from Rhodes to Samos


Is it possible to take a ferry (or multiple ferries) from Rhodes to Samos in one day on June 4th (Tuesday) 2013? If so, what is the easiest strategy? Should I book in advance?

Thanks so much!

No direct ferry now, it was only once a week anyway so the chances of using it were slim.

However that is irrelevent as it is essentially ferries straight up the line of islands.

The 1st ferry needs to get you to any island from Kalimnos to Patmos.

The 2nd ferry gets you from any of those islands Kalimnos/Leros/Lipsi/Patmos to Samos(Pythagorion)

That's all you need to know.

It might be done in a day if the Hydrofoil is running, if not factor in a night or two on one of those islands to get the 2nd ferry.

I would choose Lipsi or Patmos, you may decide to stay longer....

Timings taken from last year:

08:30 Dodecanissos Seaways catamaran arr Patmos 13:15, then 17:00 Hydrofoil. or next day maybe 11:00 'Nissos Kalimnos' or 17:00 Hydrofoil.

Only the first is currently bookable, you'll have to wait on the hydrofoil, maybe early May time.

'Nissos Kalimnos' from Patmos > Pythagorion listed as 09:35 Tues, Fri, 11:00 Thur, Sun.

You need to take the ferry 'Nissos Kalimnos' which goes Kalimnos > Leros > Patmos > Pythagorion(Samos).

Departs Kalimnos 05:00 Tues, Fri, and 07:00 Sun.

You can get to Kalimnos or Patmos from Rhodes or Kos with a Dodekanissos Seaways catamaran.




Copy & Paste the 2nd URL
