Information about Chania Port Souda
Chania Port, also known as Port of Souda is situated on the North West coast of the island. It is the main port of Chania and one of the largest ports in Greece, it distributes a major trade centre in the area.
The port of Souda is approximately 7 km from the centre of Chania, 18 km to Chania Airport and approximately 58 km to Rethymno. There is public transport which frequently passes from the port to the centre, you could use either bus or taxi to transport you into the centre of Chania. There is a daily ferry that connects to Chania from Piraeus Athens which is an approximate duration of 9 hours with the normal ferry, but superfast ferries operate which as well which takes 4 to 5 hours to get to Chania Port, as we go into summer season these connections increase.
There are a few major ferry companies that support this line, Anek Lines, Hellenic Seaways, Minoan Lines, Blue Star Ferries and Anen Lines. Many of these lines not only support connections from Piraeus, but you can travel from one of the other Greek islands to Crete.
These ferries connect from Cycladic islands, Santorini, Paros Naxos, Milos, Mykonos, basically all the Dodecanese and East Aegean Islands via third islands. This could be another way for you to get to the island if you are planning to start your trip from another destination.
The facilities at the port are minimal but in just a short walk out of the port terminal, you would find numerous shops and restaurants. Aside from the ferry boats which connect to Souda Port, it is also an important port for many cruise ships touring the Mediterranean Sea.
On the North end of the port, there is a Navy Base which is situated and facilities of the U.S. Navy of which sailing ships are forbidden to pass from this area, as it is protected by the U.S. Navy.
