Crete Ferry Timetable

As there are so many different ferries that run to Crete from a variety of different destinations, such as the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, Athens, and from within Crete, there is not one specific ferry timetable. There are on average about 200 ferries sailing a week across 35 different routes, but this number can change due to any number of factors, such as time of year that it is sailing, but we will always try to give you the most relevant information when you are making your booking.

How long does the Ferry to Crete take?

Ferry durations can vary due to a number of factors, such as weather conditions at the time of sail, as well as what route you are travelling on, so there is not one exact ferry sail time to Crete. Indeed, ferry sailings can take between 1 hour and 45 minutes, to 3 hours, to 9 hours, to 20 hours and 20 minutes, so how long you are sailing for will very much depend on what route you take.

Crete Ferry Prices

The price for a ferry can be affected by any number of reasons, such as what time of year the ferry is sailing, what route you are sailing on, and how you are travelling, such as on foot or by car, so there is not one exact ferry price for the ferry to Crete. Because of this, we recommend checking out our handy fare finder tool, to find the best ferry at the best price for you, and be sure to sign up to our email newsletter to be the first to hear about our latest deals and offers.

Can I take an overnight Ferry to Crete?

There are not any specific ferries that provide overnight routes to Crete, but there are some ferries that take over 12 hours to reach their destination, and one ferry that takes around 20 hours, so there is a strong chance that there may be overnight ferries available, but this is something that you would have to check before booking.

Crete reviews

  • "A pleasant journey"

    Despite our journey being delayed by some 4 hours due to weather conditions between Karpathos and Crete, (we had been informed of this by a text message in Greek so we needed a translation by a friendly waiter) we were happy with our travelling choices to Karpathos. As a party of six, including two elderly people, we were helped by your staff on every occasion, for example shown the lifts so we could avoid the flights of stairs. For comfort we chose the aircraft seat in the lower lounge, it was comfortable here and fairly quiet as we were now travelling through the night. Just one suggestion to make it even more relaxing, especially as we were now on board from 10pm until after 4am, the lounge with the reclining aircraft seats need to have the lighting dimmed so it is easier to sleep. We would certainly travel again with you and were content with our journey despite being very tired.

  • "Superb"

    The ferry was more like a luxurious cruise ship....clean, quiet, comfortable, and no shortage of friendly, helpful and competent crew. Food and eating options were just fantastic as were the catering facilities. Of my many ferry trips, this was easily the best service I have been on.
