LAVRIO - KEA FERRY

Every afternoon 15:00 or 18:00
Full schedules published only 1 month in advance: www.openseas.gr
We recommend that our guests rent a car for the time they will be on Kea. Our island is large and there is very little public transportation. Taxis are available but reluctant to drive to the best off-road destinations. Keep in mind that many roads in Kea are unpaved and scooters may not be the safest choice.
If you plan to rent a car for only part of your stay there is a local rental agency here and we can call to reserve for you. Driving from the Athens International Airport to the port of Lavrio is very straight-forward - 30 minutes. Car rentals from the airport may be less expensive but a place on the ferry boat will need to be reserved in advance - E30/each way.
The ferry to Kea takes 1 hour and leaves every morning from Lavrio at 08:30. The number of afternoon/evening ferries varies from high to low season but there is always at least 1 and as many as 5 in addition to the morning boat. It is usually not necessary to reserve passenger tickets in advance, simply be at the port-side ticket agents 30-40 minutes before ferry is scheduled to leave. In July, August and on weekends it is necessary to reserve a place in advance for a car.
If there is very little time between your flight arrival and ferry departure, we can send a taxi to meet you in the arrivals hall of the airport and have you in Lavrio as fast as possible.
We provide free transfer from port of Korissia to RTF for all guests if we know which ferry you'll be on!
