Ferry from Kissamos to Gytheion

Anchor is pulled up and ferry ready to go! See you again Crete!
Was a sad feeling to leave from Crete, such a nice island it is, but I can always get myself back there!

The ferry leaves from Kissamos Crete every wednesday 7:30 am and had two stops (Kissamos-Antikythira-Kythira-Gytheion) before arriving to Gytheion Peloponnes at 15:30. Price for my van was 138 e + 23 e a person, so total costs 161 e one way. Earlier on the phone they told me that it would costs 21 e a meter and 33 e per person, so it was not totally correct information. In the ferry there was plenty of place in half May, so no need to book tickets in advance. You can buy the tickets one hour before the ferry leaves from the harbour or you can but them in Kissamos in two offices who sells ferry trips. More information you can ask in Lane Sea Lines office Kissamos tel 2822 02350. Pets are not allowed to take inside the ferry, so we stayed all 8 hours on the deck. Lucky there was no rain, but in the end I was really ready to leave the ferry behind!!!

Ferries from Piraeus to Crete (Anek Lines and Minoan Lines) are leaving evenings, so there I could have my dog at the upper deck restaurant inside without staying all night long outside!

    Gytheion on upea paikka.Tässä Siirin kanssa ihaillaan maisemia ja varsinkin sitä uima-allasta.Sinne olisi mukava pulahtaa.Upea tuo täysikuukuva ja majakka.
