Book your ferry to the idyllic Greek islands from Athens' major port simply and securely with AFerry
The island of Hydra is located in the Aegean Sea between the Saronic Gulf and the Argolic Gulf and is separated from the Peloponnese by a narrow strip of water. In ancient times the island was known as Hydrea, meaning "water" in Greek, a reference to the islands natural springs. The main town called "Hydra port" has a crescent-shaped harbour with restaurants, shops, markets and galleries that cater to tourists and locals. Hydra has good ferry links to Ermioni, Spetses, Piraeus, Poros and Porto Heli.
17 Nov 2017Rude staff, no information in port area.
On arrival at the port area there was no information to let us know which ferry was ours - there were three boats there widely spaced out and we were running with our cases from boat to boat not knowing where to go. Once we found our boat thanks to a member of the public, we got on and found our seats but we were shouted and screamed at in Greek by a woman member of staff because we didn't know where to put our luggage (we were some of the last people to get on because although we had arrived early we hadn't known where to go to catch the boat). We had no idea what the woman meant as we don't know Greek. We were trying to do the right thing but it was the first time we had done this and we just didn't know. I truly have never in my life been screamed at like that, I felt traumatised by the experience. That horrendous female needs to either be sacked or trained in customer service. More information is needed in the port area to inform people where to go and what to do.

17 Jun 2014An absolute pleasure
We are two females over 65 travelling together and were concerned as to how we would manage. Thanks to AFerry, booking was easy, train from Monastaraki to Pireus no problem and reasonably easy to find our ferry. Perhaps a little direction from station to ferry port would be a help. Facilities at the port were clean and we were assisted onto and off the Flying Dolphin. Everything was perfect. Flying Dolphin was on time and staff were very helpful. A very pleasant journey !

20 May 2014good service but back seats not great
In general, i think the service is good. However, i think the back seats that we had are not the best. You are in the very back of the boat with a strong diesel smell. If placed somewhere else, i think the boat is excellent.

20 Jun 2013The only way to get to Hydra
Whole experience was fine. Not as bumpy as I had feared. Booking was relatively straightforward too, though I wish we had realised that some sailings booked up. By the time we got around to booking, the one we wanted was full and the next available one was 6 hours later. Getting on the ferry is a bit of a rammy, but since you have numbered seats you can just hang back till everyone else has fought their way on. Piraeus isn't very nice to wait in, so leaving it as long as possible before getting there would make sense. And the ferry stops at Poros first, which I didn't realise from any of the websites I had looked at, and so it takes a bit over 1 hour 50 minutes to get to Hydra rather than the 1 hour 30 minutes which people quote.
