Great Barrier (Port Fitzroy) ferry port in Great Barrier Island connects you with Auckland in New Zealand with a choice of up to 1 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Great Barrier to Auckland crossing is from 4 hours 30 minutes and the crossing is operated by Sealink NZ.
Located on the west coast of Crete, the region of Kissamos has two ports; one is used primarily for fishing and mooring small boats with no transfers coming in or out, the other port is used to connect passengers to the other Greek Islands. The port providing ferry routes lies just three kilometres from the capital city of Kastelli; the busiest area of the island hosting a range of shops, restaurants and hotels.
The landscapes surrounding the port area are renowned for being particularly beautiful; rugged coastline, unique rock formations and refreshing greenery alone all make the port worth visiting. The rest of the region offers a quiet, sleepy side not usually associated with the party lifestyle of the majority of the Greek Islands.
Getting around Kissamos may require the need to hire a car or rely on taxis, unless visitors are prepared to wait for the unreliable bus service, although that isn’t advisable. The port is within walking distance from the city centre, taking about an hour if walked at a fairly fast pace. Facilities are lacking at the port due to the small size, though the crossings are relatively short so there isn’t a great demand for eating and drinking facilities.
