Ferry Service
« on: June 17, 2018, 09:50:23 am »
According to news reports there is a new ferry service which now links the Ionian islands.

The problem I am finding is finding anything apart from messageboard postings and newspaper articles. The website for Joy cruises does not mention anything, I have tried e-mailing them but have had no response.

Really fancy doing something different  next year eg. flying to Corfu and having a few days there, then hydrofoil to say Paxos or Ithica for another few days, then of course  hydrofoil to Zakythos for a week or so, then back to the UK.

If anyone spots any direct contact details or a booking office on Zakynthos etc. it would really help. Thanks

Got a really helpful reply from the Paxos office e-mail address. :)

Just in case anyone is interested I asked about traveling
from Corfu to Ithaca the price is 35.50 Euro one way and half price for children between 5 - 10 yrs

and Ithaca to Zakynthos the price is 23 Euro one way and half price for children between 5 - 10 yrs

Payment at the moment is by credit card only, to book in advance.

This could be a real possibility for next year. Three Ionian islands over 2 weeks ;D

Timetable they sent is a bit different to above
