Piraeus to Hydra Ferry

Connecting the city of Piraeus on the coast of Greece with the island of Hydra within the Saronic Islands, this ferry route provides an essential link between the Saronic Islands and the coast of Greece.

The city of Piraeus, part of the Athens urban sprawl, and the largest port not only in Greece, but also in all of Europe, and therefore is home to much of the commerce and maritime activities that you would expect, but also has its own rich history and easy connections to the rest of Greece that makes it the perfect place for a brief visit. The island of Hydra is one of the closest islands to Athens, and is therefore one of the most popular summer destinations for locals, thanks to its hilly landscape, isolated coves, beautiful beaches, and the island is fully car free, so there is no pollution to worry about here.

With up to 39 ferries running per week, provided by 2 ferry operators, and with sail times between 1 hour and 30 minutes, to 3 hours and 30 minutes, there is no shortage of ferries to choose from, so book now with Direct Ferries, to find the best ferry at the best price for you.

Piraeus Hydra Ferry reviews

  • "Ferry ok BUT port a bit disorganised "

    The ferry service from Piraeus to Hydra is fast and efficient. Bit of a scrum getting on the ferry but otherwise good. Don’t forget anything on the dock - the ferry won’t go back once shoved off. Some poor sole watched her bag disappear into the distance. The only negative would be Piraeus Port itself. It is not necessarily clear where specific ferries depart from - a sign post or two might help - perhaps that is the Greek way!!!!

  • "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...?
