Zante Ferries, formerly known as Cyclades Ferries, operates frequent crossings from the Greek cities of Killini and Piraeus to the Cyclades and Ionian Islands, the most popular archipelagos in Greece.
Having sailed the Aegean from Piraeus Harbour for many years, Zante Ferries has become one of the biggest ferry companies in Greece, carrying thousands of passengers every year.
Their fleet consists of three large ships called Dionysios Solomos, Andreas Kalvos and Adamantios Korais, offering a wide range of onboard services. They boast modern, stylish cabins ranging from deluxe standard to economy, and you can enjoy a selection of delicious light meals, snacks and refreshments in the cafes and restaurants.
Given the size of the vessels, they can hold a great number of vehicles, too, ranging from large to small cars and motorcycles. Passengers are also allowed to travel with their pets at no extra charge, with plenty of kennels available on board. Some smaller pets may be taken to the open deck, however, all owners must carry a valid EU Pet Passport.

"Better than a cruise"
The ferry sailed in & within a short space of time was off on its way. A coffee was served promptly & we sat outside enjoying the short journey from one island to another. The ship was clean, comfortable & a delight.Read More Read Less
Pireaus to Sifnos journey was perfect. Left on time, arrived on time. Ship is comfortable and well appointed. The only downside is being required to check-in 2 hours before departure. For a 7.00 departure that means getting to the ship for 5.00. It means getting up and travelling from your accommodation at 4.00. It is not necessary, many passengers were boarding just minutes before departure. If Zante introduced electronic tickets all advanced arrival and delay could be reduced.Read More Read Less
"Santorini to Folegandros transfer"
We purposely chose a conventional ferry rather than a quicker Sea Jet so that we could sit on deck, sunbathe, & take in the views. We were not disappointed and got to see another couple of small islands which we called into en route. The ship was very clean & tidy & the facilities were all excellent. The only downside was the 7.00 am sailing which necessitated a 5.00 am alarmRead More Read Less
The ferry was a bit late, but you expect that in Greece. Refreshments were reasonably priced, the boat was clean and there were lots of tables and chairs on the decks, which was much more pleasant than the faster, smaller ferries, on which you are packed into rows of seats inside.Read More Read Less
