Winter & Off-Season Travel Information for Hydra Island

All of the summer time travel options are available during the winter and off-season except that there is a reduced service and without wanting to put anyone off, the weather can disrupt travel plans occassionally.

 

Athenians who are used to commuting back and forth to Hydra for the weekend are good at dealing with the plans being halted by the weather being too windy for example. They just put their break off until the next weekend or drive overland to Metochi instead.

 

But for our Winter visitors it can be a little alarming if this happens. So this page is designed to help you decide what to do, just in case, so you don't have a panic if the weather isn't good.

 

Hellenic Seaways

The timetable for the winter offers at least two routes per day but often means either hanging around or an overnight stay in Athens. Because they can sail in stronger winds it tends to be the larger Flying Cats which are very comfortable.

Metochi Ferries

Very little stops the Metochi Ferries from running daily. Pre-booking a car/minibus to collect you from AIA to drive you to Metochi doesn't cost much more than taking a Flying Cat. Click the link to find the timetables and contact details.

Athens Hotels

You may find your travel times don't work well, or you want to avoid delays so it's a good idea to have a provisional booking for both end of your journey. Visit Booking.com and choose a hotel in central Athens with a taxi serivce to collect you. With most Athens hotels you can cancel with no charge at the last minute.
