Transportation

For customers arrriving from Piraeus to the port of Agia Marina, we offer free transportation by private vehicle.

Aegina lies in the middle of the Saronic Gulf near the main Athens port of Piraeus. Visitors usually fly to Athens International airport, catch the E96 shuttle bus or take a taxi to Piraeus.
Ferries depart for Aegina regularly during the summer, less often in the winter. Hydrofoils (Flying Dolphins) are plentiful (around 16-a-day) and take around 40 minutes, ferries about twice that time (1 hour 15 minutes).

The main ferry companies are:

Hellenic Seaways
Nova Ferries
Saronic Ferries
Evoikos Lines have regular transportation to the ports of Souvala and Agia Marina. Agios Nektarios (10am, 2pm, 4pm)
Aegean Flying Dolphins (hourly from 6am).
Anes Ferries operates a daily round-trip ferry from Piraues to Aegina.

There are ferry links to the three main ports on Aegina - Souvala, Agia Marina and Aegina Town with connections from Aegina port to the other Saronic islands of Angistri, Hydra, Poros and Spetses with further ferry links to the Peloponnese (Epidaurus, Hermioni, Porto Cheli, Tolo, Isthmia, Nafplion) and Attica. Some of the connections are seasonal.
Spetses, Hydra, Poros, and Methana have year-round ferry links but Piraeus can be a better bet for other islands out of season.
A comprehensive list of daily sailings is posted outside their Port Authority office on the harbour and officials, not unreasonably, get a little tetchy with tourists who press for information.
