Getting to Sami Port

Sami port is situated on the northeast side of the island, approximately 34kms from the main airport of Kefalonia. A taxi ride takes between 45 minutes and an hour, depending on traffic.

Public transport options are also available. If you are arriving as a group, we are happy to organize a private transfer for you from the airport by minibus with our reliable partners, so simply let us know the details of your arrival and we will advise accordingly.

Sailing Itineraries from Kefalonia

Most charters from Kefalonia head north towards the islands of Lefkas and Corfu with many smaller islands in between!

The Northern Ionian Islands

North of Kefalonia lies Lefkas with its amazing, world famous beaches and plenty of small coves to explore! On the way the islands of Ithaki, Kastos and Kalamos are popular stops with plenty to see and do.

 North of Lefkas lies Corfu, the largest of the Ionian islands and known for being the most cosmopolitan of all. Over the course of its long history, the island has been occupied by Italian, French and English powers. A mixture of different civilizations and cultures blended together into a character that is undoubtedly Greek and truly unique.

Getting to Corfu will usually take you through the mainland ports of northern Greece including Syvota and Parga and allows you to explore the amazing islands of Paxoi and Antipaxoi along the way.
