Agree with Gas

Conventional boats will take for ever

Gas are the new fast/catamarans do the route?

Hydrofoils are great but have limited space outside to see the wonderful sea

You can get a hydrofoil (dolphin) or the larger more comfortable Flying Cat, both from Hellenic Seaways, from Piraeus to Hydra for 40 euros return. Journey takes about 1.5 hours and you can book online at www.dolphins.gr where there is also a timetable. The ferry to Hydra from Piraeus cannot be booked in advance and costs 20 euros return. They go less frequently than the hydrofoils taking approximately 3.5 hours, stopping at Poros on the way. They only leave Piraeus once a day at 8:00am each morning. You can get the X96 Express Bus from Athens International Airport and you want the last stop which drops off right next the the gate into the harbour. The ticket office is just inside the harbour gate and the ferry is opposite it. There are photos of all the different options and full instructions for getting to Hydra on the island's website www.HydraDirect.com - hope that helps.
