Paros port (Parikia) is served by Blue Star Ferries, Golden Star Ferries, Hellenic Seaways, Seajets, Fast Ferries and Minoan Lines companies.

You can travel to Paros from these mainland ports:

  • Piraeus
    Runs all year. About 3 hours with a fast ferry or 4 and half hours with a conventional ferry.
  • Rafina
    Direct ferries only in the summer. Conventional ferries only. About 4 to 6 hours.
  • Lavrio
    Direct ferries in the summer only. Conventional ferries only. About 7 hours.
  • On foot: Please arrive at least one hour before you travel.
  • By car: Please arrive at least two hours before you travel and in July and August allow for traffic jams on your journey.

Yes, you can take your dog or other pet on the ferry but it isn't possible to book a space in the kennel in advance. All Greek ships by law must have some kennel space.

  • On conventional ferries

    If you are travelling on conventional ferry (not a fast ferry or catamaran) there is normally space available in the kennels and you should also be able to have your dog on all deck areas (but not inside) with you. Strictly speaking, this at the discretion of the ferry company but in general you should have no issues - though please take a muzzle with you just in case and keep your dog on a leash at all times. Small sized dogs and cats can travel in the ship as long as they stay inside a special travel box.

    The other option, for absolute peace of mind, is to book a pet cabin. These are like normal cabins but have linoleum flooring. They are also available for day crossings at reasonable prices. This way you don't have to worry about finding space in the kennels and you and your dog or cat can relax. In July and August ferries can get very busy with people and other dogs.

  • On fast ferries or catamarans

    Fast ferries and catamarans will also have kennels but these will be limited in number. In addition, the majority of fast ferries (though there are exceptions) don't have open deck space accessible throughout the journey, so you will not be able to stay out with your pet during your crossing. However, if your pet is small and inside a travel box you will be able to keep him or her inside.

Yes, we accept PayPal and if your debit card is issued by Visa or Mastercard then you should have no issues paying by debit card.

The port was fine. Nice seating area and many snack places and cafes nearby. Not sure about the toilets because I didn't go.
