Types of seats


High-speed ferries offer two types of seats - standard seats and business/VIP seats. Both kinds correspond to airline type/numbered seats. Standard airline types seats are more affordable, while Business/VIP seats are more luxurious.

Conventional ferries, on the other hand, offer an additional type of seats - standard economy seats. Passengers who book this type of ticket can sit on the deck or in one of the designated interior lounges. It is the most inexpensive alternative when it comes to ferry tickets and most people prefer it for their journey.
You should keep in mind, though, that such tickets are not numbered and do not secure you a specific seat. Thus, to find a comfortable place to sit throughout the crossing, it is recommended to embark on the ferry as early as possible.


How to find your ferry in the port of Piraeus

Piraeus Port, the closest port to Athens' center

Ferries departing for Amorgos and Cyclades islands leave from Gates E6, E7 and E9 at Piraeus Port. The gate of departure will be written on your ticket, too. Piraeus is a huge port and the distances among the gates are long. On account of this, make sure to figure out where your gate of departure is beforehand.
Don't get lost! Get our Piraeus Port Map.

Amorgos has two ports; Katapola and Aegiali.
Katapola is the main port located within the island’s capital, while Aegiali is located on the north side of the island. Both ports receive ferries from Athens and other islands of the Cyclades, yet itineraries to Katapola are more frequent.

Greek ferry companies have a flexible luggage policy. Each ticket holder is allowed to carry up to 40 kg or 0.5 cubic meters of luggage.
A designated area for bulky items is available on every ferry. Passengers can leave their suitcases or any other large object there; however, you can also take your luggage on board if you wish to do so.
It is advisable to leave heavy luggage in the designated area but take your personal items (like your wallet and mobile phone) with you.


Traveling with a car


It is possible to take your car/motorbike to Amorgos by booking an additional ticket for your vehicle.
Drivers will be requested to be at the port a minimum of one hour before departure.
After parking your vehicle in the ferry’s garage, you will be asked to head upstairs. Entering the garage is prohibited during the crossing for security reasons.


Alternative ways to reach Amorgos


Amorgos does not have an airport and you can only reach the island by ferry.
However, you can take advantage of other islands nearby, which boast airports. Mykonos and Santorini host international airports so it is possible to fly to one of the two islands from abroad.
Meanwhile, Naxos, Paros and Milos have a national airport each. Since flying directly to any of them from abroad is impossible, a transit stop at the International Airport of Athens is required in order to reach them. After arriving at any of the islands, you will need to take the ferry to Amorgos.
