Greece, with its over 200 inhabited islands, often requires ferry travel while island hopping to get from one island to another. There are different types of ferries, on which I elaborate in my complete ferry travel guide blog. This blog is about taking a fast or highspeed ferry, a Seajets ferry in particular. Cause Seajets has the biggest highspeed ferry network, the change is large you will embark one of their ships. Although they are way faster than the slower (mostly Blue Star) ferries, they are smaller and less stable and tend to make you more seasick in rough seas. They are also more expensive than slow ferries. These are the larger and more stable boats. So if you’re wondering how taking a highspeed ferry in Greece with Seajet works, this guide is for you.
In case you do not like reading, I made a video about the complete process as well
This is how taking a Seajets ferry (fast ferry) in Greece works, in case you’re going island hopping in Greece 🇬🇷. Hopefully it answers some of your questions about ferry travel. DISCLAIMER: we took the Champion Jet 2 this time: this is a larger fast ferry / catamaran ship with a car garage & outside deck. Seajets has many vessels of different size. But the larger the ferry, the steadier the ride. In general it works the same: you have a designated seat and when walking you’ll have some difficulty with the ship going from left to right. Personally it doesnt bother me but if you ALWAYS get seasick plz take the slow ferry! . #greekislands #greekislandhopping #ferrytravel #greeceislandhopping #islandhopping #islandhoppinggreece #greekferry #greekferries #ferryhopper #tzatchickie #greekislandlife #greecetravel #greece #greecetraveltips #greecetrip #greekislandhop #greece2023 #seajets #seajets #seajetsgr #seajetstravel👍🥶♬ Good Vibes (Instrumental) - Ellen Once Again
You can easily find and book ferries on a comparison website such as Ferryhopper. This way you can compare all companies and times available on one website before you book, instead of having to browse the website of different ferry companies. They have even implemented the bonus / loyalty programmes of the ferry companies into their platform. So you can save your points and miles even when booking through Ferryhopper. All you need to do is select the route and date and follow the steps. It’s important to check the timetable of the specific route you’re taking as ferry times can change depending on the destination and the time of year.

Boarding the ferry can be described as organized chaos, especially when it is busy during high season. Hundreds of people are getting on at the same time. And in case of Seajets they are on a tight schedule so the process is swift, especially when compared to slower ferries.
Disembarking is again organized chaos, but it comes down to two simple steps:
You should choose a fast, highspeed ferry if you do not easily get seasick and want to get to your destination as fast as is possible by boat. And if you do not care about sitting inside in an airplane type seat for a couple of hours. If you want more stable and cheaper option where you can sit outside, opt for a slow ferry.
