Amorgos ports

ABOUT THE 2 PORTS OF AMORGOS

Amorgos has two ports, Katapola and Aegiali. Both ports operate with passenger ferries connecting Amorgos with Athens and other islands.
Katapola is located in the midsouth part of the island and is very close (6km,12 min. drive) to Chora, the Capital town.
Aegiali is located in the north part of the island. It is a well developed settlement with a sandy beach, many touristic facilities, hotels and shops. The traditional village of Tholaria is only 3,3km away.
Blue Star ferries and Express Skopelitis operate with both ports of Amorgos while high-speed Seajet ferries arrive and depart only from Katapola. Also, Katapola is connected with Athens by ferry on a daily basis with 1 or 2 ferry crossings, while Aegiali is connected with Athens by ferry with 4 ferry crossings per week. Furthermore, the port of Katapola connectes Amorgos with Santorini, Mykonos, Paros, Naxos and the Small Cyclades islands with daily ferries while Aegiali connects Amorgos only with Paros and Naxos on a weekly basis. Astypalaia and the Small Cyclades islands are also connected with Aegiali port by ferry.
Overall, Katapola is slightly a bussier port but Aegiali is a popular destination too. Choosing which port of Amorgos to use for your travel depends on the ferry and ticket availability for the dates requested as well as the location of your accommodation. Note that the distance between the two ports is 25 km which is 40min. drive. In any case when booking your tickets to Amorgos, make sure to check which port you will be travelling to/from.

The duration of the ferry trip from Athens to Amorgos varies from a minimum of 5h35m to a maximum of 8h30m.

• How much is the ferry from Athens to Amorgos?
Prices depend on the ferry type (conventional or high-speed) . Some indicative prices are:

  • €69.80 for the high-speed Seajets from Piraeus to Katapola with a trip duration around 6 hours and 30 minutes.

• What ferries are operating from Athens to Amorgos?
There are two types of vessels operating the route from Athens to Amorgos, the conventional ferries mainly run by Blue Star Ferry company and high-speed ferries run by Seajets company.

> Conventional ferries
The conventional type of ferry by Blue Star is a big vessel with many indoors, outdoors spaces, cabins and a garage. If you are traveling with a dog, there is an organised kennel but depending on the vessel you can also keep your dog with you on the deck. You will find restaurants, fast food eateries, cafes and small shops with magazines and more whereas there is air conditioning in all the interior spaces. The trip with a conventional Blue Star Ferry is the most popular. Bad weather conditions such as strong winds, do not affect this type of vessel very much, and are always on time. Also the trip is much more pleasant because due to its size and spaces, you can enjoy the beautiful sea views and have lunch or coffee.
There are 4 weekly ferry crossings to Katapola port and 4 weekly ferry crossings to Aegiali port. Last but not least, a big advantage of this ferry type is that with an extra fee you can take your car with you to Amorgos.
strong>Types of seats: the Deck/Economy, the Air seats/Economy, Air seat/Business, and cabins with/without view.
Price range: €34 - €38.50.
Vehicule: €18 (Moto), €78.50 (Car)
Cabin: €67- €103
Timetable: During the summer season, there are 1-2 ferry crossings per day for this type of vessel to/from Piraeus/Amorgos.

> High-speed ferries
The high-speed ferries by Seajets are smaller in size ferries that run faster. There are no outdoor spaces and passengers remain in the indoor area. There are only numbered airplane type seats and only one coffee shop where you can buy a coffee, a refreshment or a snack. Inside the vessel there is an air conditioning system. The Seajet ferry does not have a garage, so you can not bring your car with you to Amorgos. The big advantage for choosing high-speed ferries is that they go faster and the price is relatively not much higher than the conventional ferry.
Unfortunately, because they are small vessels, bad weather conditions affect them easily and it has been noticed that delays occur very often. In case you are travelling with strong winds, you might feel a bit sea sick nauseous.
Types seats: Airplane seat/Economy, Airplane seat/Business and Airplane seat/Vip.
Price range: € 69.8- € 79.8
Timetable: During the summer season, there is 1 ferry crossing per day for this type of vessel to/from Athens/Amorgos (Katapola)
