    Travelling to Symi
    • No problems with this ferry journey. It was on time and was quick. Easy to book the journey on the internet and then we swapped the confirmation for tickets at the port. No issues. It was pretty quick to Symi taking only about 1hour 15 mins and there are different options for where to sit - on deck, on the lower deck, or in the air con compartment.

    Ferry from Rhodes to Symi
    • Ferry terminal easy access from Rhodes Old Town, just a short walk. Ferry leaves on time and arrives at your destination on time. Impressed very much with the comfort of both the Fast Cat and the Transporter ferries. Will defiantly be using them again.

    Trip to Symi
    • The ferry was very efficient and departed on time. The only strange thing was that it was unclear that once you got to the port, you thought your email confirmation was your ticket - it wasn't and you then had to exchange your email for a ticket. This was not made clear on the email. Otherwise no complaints.
