Ferry schedules to and from Samothraki in 2023

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.

From the 6th of June up to the 4th of September 2023, on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays 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.

13 Oct 2020, 11:42
Hello, not yet

Hi, is the timetable for November now available? Thank you for your advice.
05 Nov 2020, 23:33
Hi Anna,

The timetable is only available till the 9th of November. For the moment the ship Proteus replaces Adamantios Korais.
Anna Marina
05 Nov 2020, 23:43
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
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
19 Jul 2021, 17:20
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).

When will we have the boat timetable for November usually ? Thank you
13 Oct 2021, 10:47
Hi Anne Marie,
I don't know, it depends on the ferry company. Personally I think that it will be published in 7-10 days, but it's just a personal opinion.
01 Dec 2021, 00:24
Hallo, are there ferries from Samothraki to Alexandropouli on 1st, 2nd and 3rd of January 2022?
01 Dec 2021, 00:30
Hi Dimitar,
The ferry company didn't announce yet the holiday schedules.
17 Dec 2021, 08:42
Hello do we know if there will be ship this Sunday from Alexantrupolis to Samothrace according the weather? Thank you very much
17 Dec 2021, 11:17
Hi Irini,
At the moment there is nothing announced, maybe it is too early. Please contact Zante Ferries at 25510 82289.
01 Apr 2022, 00:33
Hi there!
We are planning a trip to samothraki and I have two questions:
- Can I take a bicycle on the ferry? Do I need to pay extra for it? How much would that be if so?
- Is there a parking lot nearby the ferry terminal? How can I access its pricing list?

Thank you!
01 Apr 2022, 10:31
Hi Martin, there's no problem taking the bike on the ferry. I don't think you'll have to pay for it, but just to be sure check with Zante Ferries beforehand (+302551082289). There is a parking lot in Alexandroupoli on the right just outside the ferry terminal. The price is 1.5 EUR for the first hour, 1.5 EUR for the second hour, 3 EUR beginning with the third hour till midnight (then the second day of parking begins and so on).
24 May 2022, 23:44
Thanks for the response. :)
So if We leave the car at that parking lot for 9 days - we would pay 9 days x 3 EUR = 27 EUR? Is that correct?
Thank you.
26 May 2022, 14:53
Hi Martin, I just went by the parking. The prices are a little higher this season: 2 EUR for the first hour, 1 EUR for the second hour and then +0,2 - + 0,5 EUR per hour. If you want to leave the car for 24 hours the price will be 10 EUR, so for 9 days the parking will cost you 90 EUR.
13 Apr 2022, 23:24
We are coming from Athens with a rental car. Are there any rental car agencies that allow you to take the car on a ferry?
13 Apr 2022, 23:26
Hi Leilani,
I think Athens Car Rental allows you, but please check with them ( There is also the option to rent a car on the island.
14 Apr 2022, 03:11
Thank you so much! I'll check with athens-carrental.
07 Jun 2022, 23:51
Can I change the date of my tikets?
07 Jun 2022, 23:58
Yes, just contact the ferry company.
18 Jul 2022, 14:53
Hallo, I intend to travel this Sunday, 24 of July, (return on 30 of July) do i need to buy my ferry tickets in advance? Thank you!
18 Jul 2022, 18:04
During off-season you can purchase the tickets directly from the port. In peak season...well, it depends on the demand. I usually advise people to book the tickets in advance. Last year there were days when the ferry was full and there weren't any tickets available for the current day.
03 Aug 2022, 12:43
Hello! After 5th September, is there any chance to do the route Samothraki-Limmnos? I don't see in the timetable... Thanks
03 Aug 2022, 12:46
Hi Manuel,
Unfortunately no, there will be no routes to Limnos after the 4th of September.
17 Aug 2022, 13:34
Hello, could you send me, please the updated timing for ferry to Samothraki on 01. September and back on 8.September? Thank you in advance!
17 Aug 2022, 13:42
Hi Mariana,
The schedule in the article is updated. On the 1st of September the ferry departs at 16.00 from Alexandroupoli. On the 8th of September there are two departures from Samothraki to Alexandroupoli: at 07.00 and at 17.30.
17 Aug 2022, 13:57
Please let me know if in September the Ferry can be used also for cars .
Thank you.
17 Aug 2022, 14:01
Of course, the ferry carries both passengers and cars.
17 Aug 2022, 14:04
Where can i find a price list?
17 Aug 2022, 14:07
02 Oct 2022, 15:12
When will the timetable for November 2022 be published? Is ferry in November going also from Alexandroupoli?
02 Oct 2022, 15:17
Hi Eli,
I don't know when the new schedule will be announced. Yes, the ferry from Alexandroupoli to Samothraki will also run in November (it runs all year long).
09 Oct 2022, 11:01
Hi, thanks for all this information. I am wondering if there are any ferry options from Samothráki to Limnos or Lesvos or Chios in October? Thank you
09 Oct 2022, 11:05
Hi Elfie,
No, unfortunately there aren't.
25 Jan 2023, 13:25
Hello, I am planning to visit Samothrace in the begining of Feb 2023. When we can see the schedule for this month?
Or would it be the same like this one for Jan 2023? Thank you.
25 Jan 2023, 17:57
Hi, it wasn't announced yet but there is a big chance it's the same as in January.
29 Jan 2023, 12:28
Thank you.
25 Feb 2023, 12:16

Will there be a ferry in may from Samothraki to Limnos this year?

25 Feb 2023, 12:33
Most probably the ferry route from Samothraki to Limnos will start at the beginning of June.
01 Mar 2023, 07:42
Thanks! So the only way to get to Limnos is going back to Alexandroupoli and take the ferry to Limnos?
01 Mar 2023, 09:39
No, because it is the same ferry that will go to Limnos during summer (the route is Alexandroupoli-Samothraki-Limnos). To get to Limnos you can get Blue Star Ferries from Kavala. In May there is a ferry on Wednesdays:

05 Mar 2023, 16:02
It wasn't published yet. It will most probably be published in the month of April.
07 Mar 2023, 00:27
Hello! Do the ferries tend to run every day from Alexandropouli to Samothraki and back in early October, or is it starting to become less frequent by that time of the year? (I understand it can't be known for certain until the timetables are released)
07 Mar 2023, 09:34
Hi Emily,
They usually run every day, except for Wednesdays, when there is no ferry from Samothraki to Alexandroupoli.
08 Mar 2023, 00:08

20 Mar 2023, 17:39
