Ferry to Samothraki: price, info and schedule 2024

Ferry to Samothraki: price, info and schedule 2024

For the time being, the only port where you can grab a ferry to Samothraki is Alexandroupolis, on the mainland. There are talks about linking the island to Kavala (there was a route once), but nothing has materialized yet.

Currently Zante Ferries provides transportation between Samothraki and Alexandroupoli with their ship Adamantios Korais.

Samothraki ferry schedule 2024


In high season (between the beginning of June and the start of September) there are daily trips between Alexandroupolis and Samothraki and back. In some days of the week there are even two trips.

In the offseason (from September to May), there's usually one ferry trip per day from Alexandroupolis to Samothraki, but on Wednesdays, there's no return trip from Samothraki to Alexandroupolis.

The duration of the trip from Alexandroupoli to Samothraki is 1 hour and 50 minutes.

For the past couple of years, there's a direct connection between Samothraki and Limnos (Lemnos). Consequently, in some days of the week (only in summer) the ferry that departs from Alexandroupoli also stops in Limnos after stopping in Samothraki.

The duration of the trip from Samothraki to Limnos is 2 hours and 50 minutes.

Tip: if you have a few more days to spare, take advantage of the direct ferry connection and visit both islands. Limnos is a beautiful place, well worth a visit.


The total duration of the trip from Alexandroupoli to Limnos (including the stop in Samothraki) is of about 5 hours and 20 minutes.

In some days of the week the ferry travels to the island of Limnos.

Buy tickets in person

You may also buy ferry tickets to Samothraki directly from the office in the port of Alexandroupoli. You will most likely find tickets, but there's also a chance that there aren't any tickets left for your ferry of choice - especially in high season. Also, there's a possibility that the economy tickets run out and you are left with only the more expensive ones.

In Samothraki tickets can be bought at the wooden kiosk in the port parking lot in Kamariotissa.

Bringing your pet on the ferry

Pets don't need a ticket. The ship has special areas for animals and for reasons pertaining to hygiene are not allowed indoors.

On the deck, dogs can't be left alone and are required to wear a leash and a muzzle.

Travelers must have the pet's up-to-date health card and are solely responsible for its care, hygiene and safety.

The ship Adamantios Korais (Zante Ferries)

For over 20 years (up until 2019, when there were a number of problems), the link between the island of Samothraki and mainland Greece was serviced by Saos Ferries (in 2017 there was an attempt by CS Ferries to provide an alternative connection, but it hasn't materialized).

From 2019 on, the company responsible for the route is Zante Ferries, with their ship Adamantios Korais.

The vessel was built in 1987 in a Japanese ship yard and was used on various routes in Japan up until 2007 when it was bought by Zante Ferries. The ship was refurbished and modified. It takes its name after Adamantios Korais, a Greek writer who lived in the second half of the 18th century and the first half of the 19th.

The ferry is painted white and bright orange and has the following specifications:

  • length: 100 meters;
  • width: 17 meters;
  • maximum capacity: 1100 passengers and 250 cars;
  • speed: 18.6 knots (35 km/h).

On the ferryboat to Samothraki

The only document you need to get on the ferry is the ticket. Passengers must get out of the car and board on foot.

The ferry is spacious and modern. There is a bar where you can buy a snack or something to drink while on route. Sandwiches cost 1.6-3.9 Euro, pies 2.8 Euro, a bottle of water 0.6 Euro, soft drinks 2.3 Euro, Greek coffee 1.5 Euro, espresso 1.8 Euro, frappe 2.4 Euro, beer 2.7 Euro and various coffee based drinks (cappuccino, freddo cappuccino, freddo espresso) between 2.9 and 3.5 Euro.

On the ship you'll meet all sorts of travelers - from barefooted hippies leaning on a huge backpack, to elderly tourist enamored by the island for many years, to locals bringing supplies from the mainland. It's not uncommon to see people dancing or doing yoga on the deck.

Even though it's summertime and it's warm, it would be advisable to have a windbreaker or hoodie on you and probably a cap or a hat if you plan on staying on the upper deck. A nice distraction on the trip are the seagulls following the ship (usually fed by people on board with biscuits and bread), the elusive dolphins that may follow the ship for short periods of time and the unmistakable silhouette of the island that grows bigger as you get closer.

Seagulls often follow the ferry.

After a two hour journey the ferry will lay anchor in the harbor of Kamariotissa in Samothraki. Once there, the journey continues by car, scooter or local buses.

Kales diakopes! ("Have a nice holiday!")

After a 2 hour ferry journey you'll be in Samothraki.

13 Oct 2020, 11:42
Hello, not yet
Anna Marina
05 Nov 2020, 23:25
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

22 Sep 2023, 09:16

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, 22:24
This is more of a question. Which car rental companies allow you to take the car on the ferry?
13 Apr 2022, 23:18
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.
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

17 Aug 2022, 14:01
Of course, the ferry carries both passengers and cars.

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:

Επειδή διαπιστώνω ότι υπάρχει μεγάλο ενδιαφέρον για τα δρομολόγια μετά την 1/6.

Προσωπικά έχω γράψει και μέσα στο blog μου ( ότι θα μπορούσε η εταιρεία να δημοσιεύσει ένα άτυπο πρόγραμμα και αν δικαιωθεί να το εφαρμόσει, για να γνωρίζουν οι υποψήφιοι επισκέπτες να προγραμματίσουν τις διακοπές τους στο νησί μας... Αλλά...
Παντώς σίγουρα θα υπάρχουν καθημερινά δρομολόγια τουλάχιστον 1-2 από και προς Αλεξανδρούπολη και 3 την εβδομάδα από και προς Λήμνο, δεν χρειάζεται να ανησυχούν οι φίλοι του νησιού... Τόσο η ΖΑΝΤΕ όσο και το πλοίο της είναι απολύτως αξιόπιστα και δεν πρόκειται να επιστρέψουμε στο μαύρο παρελθόν...
Ευχαριστώ για την φιλοξενία inSamothraki...

Σας ευχαριστούμε πολύ για την ενημέρωση. Βάζω εδώ και την μετάφραση στα αγγλικά.

The translation of the comment above (thank you, Irineos):

"Because there's great interest about the timetable after the 1st of June, I'd like to inform you that, this year, there was a second company that bid on the routes Alexandroupoli-Samothraki and Alexandroupoli-Samothraki-Limnos.

After the route was assigned to Zante Ferries, the second company contested the auction. According to the notice from the meeting of the Samothraki Municipal Council, until the dispute is resolved, Zante can't publish an official timetable.

I've written on my blog ( that the company might publish an unofficial timetable and if the dispute is resolved in their favor, that timetable would become official so that potential visitors could plan their holiday on the island.

Anyway, there will be at least one or two trips per day to Alexandroupoli and three a week to Limnos, so there's no need to worry. Both Zante and their ferry are trustworthy and there's no way things will return to the uncertainty of the past.

Thank you for hosting my reply InSamothraki."

Στην σελίδα της ΖΑΝΤΕ FERRIES στο σύστημα κρατήσεων έχουν ανέβει τα δρομολόγια έως 3/9 αρχικά και σύντομα θα αναρτηθούν και σε πίνακα στην σελίδα.
Σήμερα ο πρόεδρος της εταιρείας ήταν καλεσμένος στο Samothraki Web Radio και είπε ότι προχθές τελείωσε δικαστικά η υπόθεση.

Τέλεια. Ευχαριστούμε

I am looking for July trips, now that they are on the schedule. It appears that Thursday is the only day with 2 trips from Samothraki to Alexandroupoli. Will there be more days added with 2 trips to Alexandroupoli? Thank you
06 May 2023, 20:57
I don't think so.
09 May 2023, 20:18
Is there a ferry from Samothraki to Alexandroupolis on 24/05/2023?
Is the timetable correct?
09 May 2023, 20:57
The timetable is correct. Off season there is no ferry on Wednesdays from Samothraki to Alexandroupoli.
17 May 2023, 00:28
What happened to Saos Ferries?

Also which other ferry company is in line to get a 2nd route and when will that be announced? Its crazy there is only 1 boat ride per day to the Island and back.
17 May 2023, 10:11
I'm sorry Nick, I don't know if there will be a 2nd ferry company.
13 Jun 2023, 01:05
Hello, We will travel to Samothraki from Alexandroupoli on June 16th with a car. Are the ferries usually full in this season? Should we buy the tickets in advance? Thank you.
13 Jun 2023, 01:10
You can buy ferry tickets on the spot. The island is quite empty these days.
13 Jun 2023, 10:18
Thank you!
08 Jul 2023, 13:43
Hi, could you please share prises for bicycles.
Thanks in advance.
08 Jul 2023, 13:58
It is free to take the bike on the ferry.
13 Jul 2023, 13:25
How does one book a ferry in advance with a rentacar since the ferry booking site needs the vehicle license plate and the rentacar agencies can only give you this information on the day of the pickup?
13 Jul 2023, 15:16
Usually you have to write RENT123 instead of the license plate, but please check again with the ferry company.
13 Jul 2023, 16:50
Thank you very much. :)
19 Jul 2023, 18:36
Hi, We want to book in advance ferry for 5th August but we cannot confirm car plate number yet. Can we still book with on plate number and make change later on? there will be not change in the category of the vehicle.
20 Jul 2023, 11:25
Yes, but it would be better to send an e-mail to Zante Ferries to see what are the steps.
02 Aug 2023, 12:58
Hi, please tell us which is the wind value at ferry won't navigate. We are looking on weather report and I can see in some days that the wind is about 40 km/h.
Thank you!
02 Aug 2023, 13:06
I don't know exactly under what circumstances the ferries are canceled but usually during the summer month there are no problems with cancelations.

Buongiorno, sono interessata a sapere i giorni in cui ci sarà il traghetto da Samotracia a Limnos ad Agosto 2024 perchè vorrei prenotare un alloggio a Limnos. Come posso fare per saperlo?
Grazie mille
10 Feb 2024, 11:04
Zante Ferries non ha pubblicato ancora gli orari estivi della nave. L'anno scorso le partenze per Limnos si facevano lunedi, mercoledi e sabato mentre il ritorno avveniva lunedi, mercoledi e domenica. E' possibile che sia lo stesso anche quest'anno, ma non e' una garanzia.
Cinzia Tonani
11 Feb 2024, 13:06
Grazie mille. Per favore, sapete dirmi più o meno, quando saranno pubblicati gli orari estivi?
11 Feb 2024, 13:43
Penso che in aprile, più o meno. L'anno scorso gli orari sono stati pubblicati all'inizio di maggio.
11 Feb 2024, 15:30
Grazie mille. Siete stati gentilissimi
