Ferries to Ikaria

There are two ports on Icaria, on the north coast at Evdilos and in the south at Agios Kirikos, both with daily ferry connections to the mainland and to other Greek Islands.

Hellenic Seaways operates three sailings weekly between the mainland ports of Piraeus and Kavala. The ferryboat Nissos Mykonos calls at Syros, Mykonos, Ikaria (alternating between Evdilos and Agios Kirikos), Samos, Chios, Lesvos and Lemnos with a sailing time from Piraeus to Ikaria of about five and a half hours.

NEL Lines has three sailings weekly from both Evdilos and Agios Kirikos to Karlovassi on the north coast of Samos with the crossing from Evdilos just under three hours and just 80 minutes from Agios Kirikos. NEL Lines also has two sailings weekly from Evdilos to the port of Vathi at Samos Town.

NEL also operates one ferry a week to the island of Chios with a journey time of five hours; three sailings weekly to Fournoi with an 80 minute crossing and runs once a week to Lemnos with a journey time of more than 16 hours. It also has a once a week sailing to Lesbos that takes 8 hours 30 minutes. Also, NEL runs a ferry twice a week between the Ikaria ports of Evdilos and Agios Kirikos.

Further afield NEL has four sailings weekly from Piraeus with a journey time of more than 8 hours, sailing on to Kavala once a week.

A local ferry ‘Panagia Theotokou’ has sailings from Agios Kirikos to south coast resorts at Manganitis, Trapalos and Karkinagri. Times depend on the season but local travel agents will have sailing times.

Ikarian water taxis called ‘venzinas’ also connect Agios Kirikos with Therma throughout the day and three times a week visit beaches at Faros, Manganitis and Karkinagri. The water taxis can also be hired for day excursions and round island trips.
