Hi all. As we are now flying into Rhodes in September rather than Athens, we have a different set of ferry options to plot and plan:-
Dodekanese Seaways Cat (presumably following last year's schedule) 8.30am up to Lipsi
ANEK Lines at 07.00 to Anafi (tempted but it's 12 hours on the boat via Halki, Karpathos &Kassos - so that would be interesting)
ANES Lines to Nissyros at 9am to Tilos/Nissyros
Blue Star at 17.30 up to Leros.
Last time I caught a ferry from Rhodes it was either the Nissos Kalymnos or a DANE/GA boat and it went from Kolona (middle harbour), so I presume that Blue Star, ANES and ANEK go from there too - can anyone confirm this. We're staying just near Akandia (3rd harbour) so nowhere's that far.
But...I have no idea where the Dodekanese Seaways cat goes from? The old, original, Nissos Kalymnos berth shoreside in Kolona? Or Mandraki?
I'm assuming that the hydrofoils still leave from Mandraki near the "bandstand"
Any info gratefully received! Only 5 months to go!
