Piraeus Spetses Ferry reviews

  • "Fantastic service!"

    Due to a accident I had to cancel my original ferry to Spetses. I rang Direct Ferries on the day I was supposed to travel to ask if there was any chance I could get some kind of refund as 6 of us were supposed to travel. A member of Direct Ferries acted immediately, contacting Hellenic Seaways, she managed to secure a full refund and was very understanding and supportive of our situation. We repatriated our son who made a full recovery and were able to travel at a later date to Spetses. I am very grateful to Direct Ferries and Hellenic Seaways and would definitely recommend using them in the future.

  • "Ferry to Spetses"

    Trip to Spetses was delayed by 48 hour strike, but changing the trip dates was easy. Staff at the booking office in Pireaus were very good. Return trip was on Flying Dolphin not Flyingcat. Very comfortable

  • "First class ferry"

    The ferry Piraeus=Spetses=Piraeus is excellent. It boards really quickly and at any island stops on the way people disembark and embark really quickly. Efficient service, very clean and comfortable. Would recommend.

  • "Nearly missed our ferry!"

    Arrived at Athens port with plenty of time to spare. Collected our tickets from Blue Star office. Advised we were on flying cat 6. Waited at terminal 6, a large port. Didn’t pay much attention to the HELLENIC ferry in the distance, thinking it couldn’t be ours, we were booked on a sea jet. Luckily a kind man selling sunglasses asked which ferry we should be on. When we told him he bagan frantically gesturing that that was our ferry and we needed to run, we only had 5 minutes to departure! Luckily we made it but have to say we were totally confused by the fact it was not a sea jet boat. We travel to the Greek islands twice a year and regularly make several ferry journeys to island hop but this one nearly didn’t happen!! On the boat it was clean, comfortable with efficient staff so no complaints there at all. Next time we will be more vigilant!

Piraeus Guide

The port city of Piraeus in Greece lies on the Saronic Gulf in the Attica region of the country and forms part of the Athens urban area, with the centre of Athens located some 12 km from the port. The centre of Piraeus is generally congested with traffic and tends not to be place where tourists would go. The area has many of the facilities you would expect of a non-tourist town: banks, public buildings, pedestrian areas, shopping streets and the like. The area around Zea Marina and Mikrolimano Harbour are perhaps the most attractive part of Piraeus and have a good selection of restaurants, cafes and bars.

Piraeus is Greece's main port and the largest in Europe and the third largest in the world. Unsurprisingly, it is the hub of Greece's maritime industries and the base for its merchant navy. Having recently undergone a refurbishment, facilities at the port have improved and include ATM's, bureau de change, restaurants, cafes, bars and a number of travel agencies selling ferry tickets. destinations served by the port include the island of Crete, the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, the eastern parts of Greece and parts of the northern and eastern Aegean Sea.

Spetses Guide

The Greek island of Spetses is part of the Saronic group of islands and is known for its long association with the navy and is famous for the part it played in the 1821 War of Independence. It was on the island that the revolution flag was hoisted in April 1821. The island has managed to retain a degree of its Greek charm and atmosphere visible to all are some lovely example of well preserved grand captain's mansions which bear testament to the island's past.

The island's harbour is at Dapia and is the tourist and commercial hub of the island and it is from here that lovely horse drawn carriage tours around the island can be taken which take in the many examples of mansions that line pretty narrow cobbled streets. September is perhaps the best time to visit the island when "Armata" takes place. This is a re-enactment of a naval battle that has taken place every year since 1931. A popular attraction on the island is the Church of Agios Nikolaos and was the former resting place of Paul Bonaparte, nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte, who came to Greece to fight to fight alongside the Greeks. It is reported that his body was kept in a barrel of rum for three years.
