ANES Ferries is a Greek ferry company offering connections from the ports of Volos, Piraeus, Mantoudi and Glyfa on the mainland to the popular holiday islands of the Sporades and Saronic groups.
The company was established in 1979 in order to connect the island of Symi with the rest of the country, as there was growing concern the locals would leave. So, ANES, whose full name is Anonymous Ferry Company of Symi, was introduced to increase tourist traffic and support the local freight business.
Today, the fully renovated vessels called Proteus and Agios Nektarios make up the fleet, offering a luxurious and enjoyable sailing experience to the Saronic and Sporades archipelagos. Both are large cruise ferries with the capability of holding over 400 passengers and 100 vehicles and, on board, you will find a wide selection of amenities with both outdoor seats and comfortable indoor lounges.
The Saronics, given their proximity to Athens, are popular amongst Greeks as affordable excursions in beautiful surroundings, whilst the Sporades, which are further north, offer some of the finest diving spots in Greece.

Recently travelled on the Sebeco with Anes Ferries from Rhodes to Symi, everything was perfect about our journey with the exception, if you want to travel in the lower cabin the diesel fuel smells/ exhaust smells, not sure which,were so pungent I feared it would make us I'll for the rest of the day.

"Thankful there was a lift"
We had a little trouble finding which gate the ferry left from so did some very unexpected walking, not great for me as I walk with a stick anyway. When we found gate 8 ferry right in front of there office, it arrived a little late but we left on time, most importantly there was a lift so no struggling with stairs as I had no strength left. The trip was good on time and we sat outside to enjoy the veiw. Couple of drinks later (don't have the americano yuk) we were in Aegina.
