  • "Very Efficient, Calm and Friendly "

    Very easy to book. Ensure the search window of preferred timings is wide enough to capture all possible sailings as they are frequent. Also, there are two harbours in Rhodes, one for the catamarans and the other for the ship. They are not far apart but be aware if carrying luggage! And they depart dead on time!

  • "Briliant"

    Good service in comfortable ferries. The port where the ferry leave from Rhodes coukd be better sign and I would appriciate if there would be some information online or on the ticket where is the commercial port as we nearly misses our ferry but one of the staff was so kind and drop as off with his own car and reject to take any money for it. Inside Pride ferry is very comfortable and spacious. We traveled to Symi so the way was really beautiful. Great experience

  • "A fantastic way to get to Symi"

    We caught the Blue Star biat from Rhodes to Symi and were very impressed with the cost, the boat and the crew. The fare was extremely cheap and a lot better value than the only competitor. Crew were available when we arrived and helped us to stow our luggage. The boat was spotlessly clean and well equipped with bars and cafes. Very comfortable seats both on deck and inside. A fantastic way to arrive on Symi. We were not able to use Blue Star for the return journey as the times were not compatible with the flight.

Rhodes Guide

The Greek island of Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands and lies in the eastern Aegean Sea, to the north east of the island of Crete and south east of Athens. The island is also a short distance off the coast of Turkey. Rhodes Town is the island's capital and main town and its Old Town is a rich tapestry made up of different civilisations and cultures. The city's medieval walls, its fortress like buildings, the gates, bastions, narrow alleys, old houses, fountains and busy squares combine to make all visitors feel as though they have stepped back thousands of years. Outside of Rhodes Town the island has a number of small villages and beach resorts that are popular with tourists. The main ones are Faliraki, Lindos, Kremasti, Pefkos, Archangelos, Haraki, Koskinou, Afantou, Paradisi, Trianta and Embona.

From the island's port, ferry services depart to Piraeus by both conventional and high speed ferry. The island is also connected to the rest of the Dodecanese Islands, the Cyclades Islands and to Crete during the summer months.
