"Excellent speed and comfortable travel."
We used the ferry between Kos and Patmos. Great boat and this method of travel is very comfortable. An extra holiday feeling beside you stay on the island! When we left on Patmos we saw a wonderful sunrise. Service operated exactly on time which is rare. The disembarkation procedure is an experience too.
