Dodekanissos Seaways

Dodekanisos Seaways was established in 1999 in Rhodes with the vision to offer regular connection between the main islands of the Dodecanese and the mainland of Greece. Very soon, George and Yiannis Spanos, who are the owners of the company, realized that there was greater need to connect the smallest islands of the Dodecanese such as Nisyros, Chalki and Kastelorizo to the bigger islands like Rhodos and Kos which were daily connected to the mainland by other ferry companies already.

Nowadays its fleet consists of 3 vessels, 2 catamarans and one conventional ferry that offer regular routes between most the Dodecanese islands thus supporting their economy, by giving them the possibility to develop within the tourism sector. Furthermore it gives the chance to permanent residents and visitors to move from one island to the other in a single day, comfortably and quickly.

Dodekanisos Seaways has been awarded many times for its great consideration towards the environment and for its social policy.

Dodekanissos Seaways reviews

Dodekanissos Seaways is rated 4.4 stars based on 13 users reviews.
  • Super trip

    [Translated from French]
    Very good organization for our trip which lasted 5 hours. It went very well and it was very comfortable. We did not see the time passed.
    The weather was good and the sea was calm.

  • Late and too crowded

    I paid online and could not change it to the ferry one hour earlier although I was at the port. That ferry was cheaper my ferry I thought better because it was more expensive online was more crowded and 45 minutes late and no information or announcements about the delay time. So frustrating.

    Answer by Ferriesingreece.com
    We would like to inform you that we contacted Dodekanisos Seaways to check about this delay and as they informed us there has never been a delay over 20 minutes, and whenever there has been a small delay this had to do with the strong winds which cannot be predicted and thus cannot be announced earlier than the trip date.
    It is normal that you could not change your tickets at the port to depart with Anes that was departing earlier as this is a different ferry company and tickets can only be changed to other tickets of the same ferry company. This is not because you booked the tickets online. Even if you had bought your tickets locally at any travel agency you would not be able to change them to a different ferry company.
    Kindly also note that the duration of the trips of both companies is almost the same (only five minutes difference) and the ticket rate difference between them was clearly stated on the booking form before you proceeded to the booking.

  • Excellent ferry

    [Translated from Italian]
    We used this company / ferry for the transfer from Rhodes to Symi and I have to say that already from the moment of the purchase of the tickets we have found the competent and capable staff. Excellent ferry, clean and functional.
    Perhaps a little complicated when looking for the company that had to do this route.

  • Everything is ok, but what a cold!

    [Translated from Italian]
    Overall, everything worked, but it would be a good energy saving if at least some rooms were also thermally accessible to normal people and not only to frozen foods.

  • Icaria to Patmos

    Great journey, very fast, nice seats, good views from sun deck.

  • Lovely vessels

    I love this company. I have traveled with them many times and their vessels are superb. They are pretty good at punctuality too. Highly recommended. No hassle boarding/disembarking too. Very helpful crew if you're towing cases!

  • I was satisfied with the service over all. My suggestion would be the issue of luggage organization and storage in the entry of the ferry. I found the job of those guys who place the luggages laborous and hard on their body. They need to deal with many passangers at once, they need to pick and place heavy luggages, it is hot, and they are exposed to car exhaust fumes. Would it be possible to institute a line before entry where each passanger/family is admitted one by one and they they need to place their luggage in a reserved and build site on the left or right? There must be a more humane solution to this than the existing practice. best, Ceren

  • This was the second time we've used Dodekanisos Seaways to go from Kos to Patmos on a family holiday and both times the service has been excellent. Comfortable seats in the air-conditioned cabin, very efficient boarding and disembarkation, friendly crew - easy as you could wish. We'll certainly book with Dodekanisos again.
