Blue Star Ferries - Ticket collection & Sales point
Dina:Want to travel to the Greek islands? hop on and off ferries between islands? You can book on line to save time and secure your ferry ride, pick up tickets from the ticket office-screen shot your booking details at the time of online ticket purchase to have handy when you arrive. Advice especially during the summer season- Double check your timeline, call ahead even to check the ferries are on time, there can be delays in high season, We have used Bluestar many times, even for daytrips to Hydra,Poros and Spetses. Clean tidy and an easy way to get around the islands near or far.
