Corfu – Saranda Ferry

Info for 2015 coming soon! 

The port of Saranda is just a few kilometres across the Adriatic from Corfu Town, and there are regular scheduled ferry services throughout the year. However, finding up-to-date information on schedules and prices can be tricky. Here we’ve pulled together the latest times and prices – though don’t be surprised if things change. This is Albania, after all.

In 2014 there are two ferry lines offering the journey – Finikas Lines, who run a fast and slow service (30 or 60 minutes), and  Ionian Cruises who run only a fast service. Unsurprisingly, the number of boats making the journey varies with the time of year.

One piece of info that’s worth knowing – Finikas Lines intends to run a new service in July and August 2014, connecting Corfu with the Albanian ports of Himare and Vlorë. The schedule and prices are TBC, so we’ll update this page as and when we hear anything concrete.

When making your travel plans, remember that Albanian time is one hour behind Corfu time.

The below list of times is accurate in Spring 2014, but please remember this is Albania and schedules can change with little or no notice. If you need absolutely 100% definitive information on the Corfu-Saranda ferry schedules, we suggest you get in touch using this form –

Please tell us as much information as you can (dates and numbers are key!) and we will get back to you within 48 hours!
