Ferry from Nidri to either Ithaca or Kefalonia

Hi. Fancy taking a ferry to another island for the day whilst in Lefkada. Is either Ithaca or Kefalonia feasible as a day trip? Fancy spending the day on a different island and maybe having lunch then returning. How long do the ferries take to get to either island? I’ve seen West Ferries go to Kefalonia but can’t work out how long the journey is. Thanks for your help.

Hi,

The ferry from Nidri to Fiscardo takes nearly two hours.

I have just found this website for Nidri to Ithaca. It lands in Frikes which is a nice village but not very big.

Hope this helps

See ferryboatmeganisi.gr/en/homepage/#ithaka_eng

They go at 08.30 from Nidri to Frikes (Ithaca). Trip takes 90 minutes and at 17.00 there is a ferry back to Nidri. Ticket is 8,50 Euro oneway.

I notice on another thread on this forum it seems to imply that the Vasiliki port is finally open, if that's the case the ferry may not be running from Nidri any more.

Don't know how to link it but its in the lefkada forum headed 'Vasiliki port in 2018 is it functional' I would assume the ferry either calls at Vasiliki or Nidri - not both.

I have not heard that Vasiliki port is open yet, but I'm not on the island at the moment and can't look with my own eyes, which is the only way to be certain! The final entry on the other thread, which is in Romanian, seems to me to be simply thanking people for the earlier info, rather than saying that Vasiliki is now open. But my Romanian is not what it might be!

It's indeed that, Kyklamina.

From a Dutch lady living on Lefkada, I heard recently that the port is not open yet.

It's indeed what you think it is, Kyklamina. Your Romanian is better than you think.

I learnned recently from a Dutch lady living in Lefkada that the port is not open yet. And she had no idea when it will be open again.
