Ferry schedules to and from Samothraki in 2021

The ferry journey to Samothraki island starts from the harbor of Alexandropoli.

The connection is operated by Zante Ferries' ship Adamantios Korais. The trip lasts for roughly 2 hours.

In some days of the week, the ferry goes all the way to the island of Limnos (after a quick stop in Samothraki). The time it takes to get from Samothraki to Limnos is almost 3 hours.

Hi, is the timetable for November now available? Thank you for your advice.

Hi Anna,

The timetable is only available till the 9th of November. For the moment the ship Proteus replaces Adamantios Korais.

Thank you so much for your quick reply! May I ask, if the ship Proteus will connect Alexandroupoli and Samothraki daily after the 9th of November? Or might it be possible that the ferry does not run every day?
05 Nov 2020, 23:48
I'm not sure, but I think it will continue to run every day, except for the Wednesdays, when there's only one way (Alexandroupoli-Samothraki), without returning on the same day.
11 Nov 2020, 19:09
are the ferries running this Friday Saturday or sun? 13th §14th and 15th nov? thank you
11 Nov 2020, 19:38
Yes, they will run (if the weather permits it), but the timetable was not yet announced.
12 Nov 2020, 09:19
thank you im a little concerned as im aware there is a changeover of ships on monday and I need to be at the airport for Monday - so wether permitting this current ship will continuue to sail until this weekend?
12 Nov 2020, 14:08
I'm sorry, I can't tell you yet. There has been no official announcement, but the ferry company should announce it soon.
12 Nov 2020, 23:17
The timetable was published. The ship runs every day.
26 Nov 2020, 14:05
Do you think the ferry will be available in December?
26 Nov 2020, 14:07
Yes, of course, as long as the weather allows it.
16 Feb 2021, 10:47
Is there a way to find out online, - day by day - if the ferry is going or not?
16 Feb 2021, 10:54
Hi Gabriella,
As there are many problems with the weather these days, it's better to call Zante Ferries - 25510 82289.
01 Jul 2021, 13:22
did i read correctly that just to go on the ferry alexandrouplis to samothraki passengers need a negative pcr test within 72 hours prior?? is that correct as of 01st July.
01 Jul 2021, 13:33
Yes, the law says that in order to travel by ferry to the islands you have to fill a form and you have to present a certificate of vaccination (minimum 14 days after the second dose) OR a PCR test (taken within the last 72 hours) OR a self or rapid test (taken within the last 24 hours) OR a certificate of recovery (2-9 months).

You can read about it here (you can use Google Translate):
01 Jul 2021, 21:03
Starting from the 5th of July rapid tests must not be older than 48 hours and self test are no longer admissible.
21 Jul 2021, 00:44
Is there a place to do a PCR test on the Island?
Thank you
21 Jul 2021, 09:50
Yes, in Kamariotissa, right near Pireos Bank

Hi, is it better to get the ferry tickets online or when we arrive in Alexandroupoli?
19 Jul 2021, 17:25
It's difficult to say. Usually there are no problems to buy tickets on the spot, but if you want to be sure it's better to book in advance, especially in high season.
01 Sep 2021, 13:08
Hello , I am planning to visit Samothraki on Saturday 04.09.2021, is the same schedule ? Start 15.30 from Alexandropoli ? could we buy tickets on place?
01 Sep 2021, 13:12
Yes, the ferry departs at 15.30 from Alexandroupoli for Samothraki. Normally you could buy tickets directly in the harbour, but in august there were some cases when the ship was full. So it depends...
03 Sep 2021, 23:25
Hello, from 6th of September the only departure from Alexandropolis to Samothraki is at 8AM? Thanks in advance!
03 Sep 2021, 23:36
Between September 6th and October 31st the departures from Alexandroupoli to Samothraki are: 08.00 (Mon, Tue), 15.00 (Wed, Thu, Sun), 15.30 (Fri), 09.00 (Sat).
