Ferry Karpathos to Crete

Hello there, I'm trying to find a ferry crossing from Karpathos to Heraklion Crete in early October please.

Can you advise what month the ferries stop running and also which days they do run. Thank you very much.

How to Get to Karpathos

Hi Stella,

The peak services run in summer months of June, July and August, so in September and October the services start to drop off. Greek ferry companies are not too good with putting up schedules ahead of time, we agree, which can make planning a little difficult, the best way is just to email or phone the head office to talk about options around the time you are planning your holiday.

The ferries that run on that line are Lane Lines and ANEK Lines.

Find Lane Lines at www.ferries.gr/lane
Email address lane @ ferries.gr
Phone number +30 2810 346185

Find ANEK Lines at www.anek.gr
Email address customerservice @ anek.gr
Phone number +30 210 4197470

See the timetable here from March up to Sep 2016...

Blue Star Ferries also go to Karpathos from Santorini, which is another way to plan your trip there or back.

Ferries depart from Heraklion and stop in Sitia in the east of Crete then Kasos Island then Karpathos at both Karpathos and Diafani ports, with services once or twice a week, with the crossing taking about 8 hours.

Consider the flight options, as this crossing is very long and a flight will allow you to quickly continue your holiday, there are two to four daily flights with Olympic Air.
