  • "Ferry trip from Piraeus to hydra and back."

    First time to hydra and was a bit apprehensive regarding ferry but it was a fantastic trip both ways. Booked seating comes as standard with ticket picked tickets up from refractive in Piraeus easily, was given great directionsons of where to board the flying cat, ride was smooth and beautiful scenery. Would recommend. Great start to our holiday on Hydra.

  • "Piraeus to Poros return"

    Both the flying dolphin & flying cat services are excellent! Use them many times throughout the islands ! The Flying cat is preferable as it is more comfortable, smoother , and has a refreshments bar - the dolphin is noisy & bumpier! The staff are amazing at helping customers & adept at quick turnarounds!

  • "Admin..."

    The ferries were clean, comfortable and punctual. However the link to check in before our journey did not work. Also, when we arrived one hour early to physically check in, the staff member said she had no record of our booking. She found it eventually but there must be a glitch in the system somewhere. Not sure why we had to be there an hour early either...?

    Easy to book. Everything on time, quick trip. The seating is comfortable enough; plenty of luggage space. Good price. Staff very helpful. There isn't any catering; the boat gets you there and back, that's all.

    Very happy with it. Staff managed to collect and drop safely for us at Hydra a camera which we had forgotten on the boat during the first leg. Very impressive. Only downside is that it is a little expensive. Apart from that full marks.

  • "A PLEASANT TRIP TO POROS"

    When arriving at Piraeus port from Airport (X96) Bus be sure to go to Hellenic Ferries booking office (inside Port) backing onto perimeter to verify your booking and a seat allocation (a must). Vessel is fast and efficient. The ferries in Greece are the lifeblood of the Islands and run always on time (weather permitting). Refreshments are not available on the Flying Dolphin but are available on the Flying cat (my return leg to Piraeus)

  • "An enjoyable crossing from Piraeus to Hydra and back"

    The ferry was very punctual. Just remember to bring the email confirmation to the port office. This ferry operator had everything neatly organised. You'll be helped to your place if you have not mastered the system. On board there is possibility to have a drink/food for a reasonable price. It's a Greyhound on the water (boat connection between multiple islands). If needed, book the same trip again.
