For the first time, there will be a direct shipping link connecting the islands of the Ionian Sea. Ilida Paxos Hydrofoil announced this week the beginning of direct coastal shipping links between the Ionian islands starting on May 1.
The 30-meter “High Speed Azimut” vessel will connect Greece’s westernmost islands for the first time, with its timetable running until October 31, 2018.
The new line will link Corfu with Paxos, the southern port of Vassiliki on Lefkada, Sami on northwestern Cephalonia, and Zakynthos every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, while sailing the opposite way on Tuesdays, Thursday and Saturdays.
