Ferry boats to Thassos
There are two mainland ports which provide ferries to the two main ports on Thassos. The routes are Kavala to Skala Prinos and Keramoti to Limenas (Thassos Town).
Can I rent a car in Thassos?
Potos Car Rentals has an office in both Prinos and Limenas, both are less than 100 meters from where the ferries berth, making it very easy to collect your car and continue on to your final destination, in comfort and stress free.
Ferry boats from Keramoti port
If you are arriving at Kavala Airport (KVA – Megas Alexandros Airport) you will have a 10 minute car/taxi ride to the port of Keramoti and then a maximum 40 minute ferry crossing to Limenas (Thassos Town). This is the fastest and shortest route to get to Thassos which means that it is also slightly cheaper.
Ferry Keramoti Thassos price
Expect to pay €18 for a normal family car (under 4.25 meters in length), €4 per adult or children over 10 years old, €2 for children between 5 and 10 years old, children younger than 5 years old travel for free. Another advantage of using the Keramoti/Limenas route is that the ferries run from very early in the morning until 23:00 with departures every half an hour during the summer months.
Ferry boats from Kavala and price
From Kavala Port the crossing takes approximately one and a half hours and the ferries are usually slightly smaller than those from Keramoti port, if there are strong winds or high seas the ferries may not sail. Prices are €19 for a normal car (under 4.25 meters in length), €5 per adult and child over 10 years old (depending on which ferry operator you use) €2,50 for children between 5 and 10 years old, under 5’s travel for free. There are only a maximum of 4 sailings a day with this route.

How to buy the ferry tickets
Tickets cannot be purchased in advance or online. You must buy your tickets at the kiosks in the ports. During high season this may take a while simply due to the number of tourists wanting to come to our little paradise! Tickets can be paid in cash or by credit and debit cards.
Last but not least, please remember if you are using a car from Potos Car Rentals you will need our written (on the Rental Agreement) permission to travel with the car on any ferry boats. If possible please let us know in advance if you plan a trip to the mainland in our cars.
