  • "Trip to Poros"

    The trip to Poros went very well, the ferries were on time and were very comfortable. We found it a great experience as we hadn’t done this sort of thing before. All in all I would recommend Blue Star Ferries.

  • "Ferry trip from Piraeus to hydra and back."

    First time to hydra and was a bit apprehensive regarding ferry but it was a fantastic trip both ways. Booked seating comes as standard with ticket picked tickets up from refractive in Piraeus easily, was given great directionsons of where to board the flying cat, ride was smooth and beautiful scenery. Would recommend. Great start to our holiday on Hydra.

  • "Piraeus to Poros return"

    Both the flying dolphin & flying cat services are excellent! Use them many times throughout the islands ! The Flying cat is preferable as it is more comfortable, smoother , and has a refreshments bar - the dolphin is noisy & bumpier! The staff are amazing at helping customers & adept at quick turnarounds!

  • "Admin..."

    The ferries were clean, comfortable and punctual. However the link to check in before our journey did not work. Also, when we arrived one hour early to physically check in, the staff member said she had no record of our booking. She found it eventually but there must be a glitch in the system somewhere. Not sure why we had to be there an hour early either...?

  • "Couldn't fault it!"

    Great service from start to finish! Easy to book online, good range of times and dates to travel, easy to find and well signposted, boats were bang on time both ways and just great! The only thing I would say is that the port in Piraeus could possibly do with more signage as we the port areas are large and we could have missed our boat as it was a bit of a walk to where we waited (the bays re pretty big so it's probably easily done).
