Cheap Ferry to Chania Port

Chania is Crete’s second largest town, situated on the west of the popular holiday island. The island has distinct character and visitors arriving on the island by ferry are treated to a magnificent view of the Venetian harbour and castle, which is the island’s most prominent historic structure.

Ferries operating out of the port of Chania connect Crete with not only mainland Greece, but some of the Aegean Islands. The port terminal is located at Souda, which is just 7kms from Chania. The terminal building has limited facilities, but a good selection of amenities lie within walking distance of the port.

Sailings to Piraeus set off on a daily basis and are operated by Blue Star Ferries. The journey time is 5 hours, 45 minutes and the ferry departs at 23:30. ANEK Lines also provides a connection to Piraeus, departing at 20:30.

Facilities onboard the ANEK Line fleet of ferries are particularly good. A cinema, internet café, music club and swimming pool allow passengers to enjoy some leisure time. The ship also boasts excellent dining facilities, with a good standard of service and delicious dishes to choose from.

Diners can choose from a self service style eatery, or a fully serviced and licensed restaurant. Disabled passengers will find good wheelchair access on board all ferries, as well as specially adapted toilets. Assistance is also available and passengers should advise staff of any special needs at the time of booking.

On the island, there is a good road which traces a route around the north seashore and provides a link from east to west. There are other roads but most are of poor quality and condition. Chania can also be reached by air, from domestic and international destinations. Ferries connect the island with mainland Greece, as well as some other Greek islands.
