Ferry Karpathos - Rhodes

Hi dear friends.

I have ticket flight for get back to Madrid from Rhodes Airport on sunday 31th August at 04:00. I would like to know if there is ferries from Karpathos to Rhodes before 30th.

I saw in some homepages and I surprised that there is only one ferry runs from Karpathos to Rhodes at saturday and arrive at 00:30. So,

it will be difficult to go from Rhodes port to Airpot? By taxis expensive?

There is any alternative ferry before that?

Anyone can help me?

p.s. I am travelling with a baby.

Thanks in advance!

You can also look into flights from Karpathos to Rhodes, with Olympic Air. There's usually 1-2 per day. Unfortunately there are not too many ferries between the two islands, despite being part of the same island region, the distance between the two is pretty large and that area of the sea is known for its high winds, which makes travel by catamaran impossible.

Ferries on that route have always been quite minimal 'Preveli' 26 Aug 12:15, 27 Aug 20:25, 30 Aug 19:10.

Flights are daily.

You would have to take the 27 Aug ferry, or a flight.



Taxi port to airport would be about 25 Euros, tarif doubles after 24:00.

Flying is your best option and may actually be cheaper.

I Think you could take the saturday 7 PM BOAT. 4 hours is enough even to take in considerarion the delays.

Could you give me info on that fight from Madrid to rodes?

3½ hrs is not enough buffer time, it is a long route ferry. I have been delayed 8 hours on that ferry line. Also had to wait 2/3 days for a ticket on a flight from Rhodes > Karpathos.
