Our journey

It all started in 2016 with three friends on a small Greek island, struggling to find a ferry connection to another small island, so that they could make their way to an even smaller island… Just like that, the idea for an easy way to go island hopping was born and the rest is history:

Naked truths

Panda bears holding bamboo sticks

Since our first ticket in 2017, more than 500 panda bears have been born. That means the more tickets we sell, the more pandas are born. Sounds like a good deal, huh?

Large ferry with seagulls flying overhead

In the summer, we sell enough tickets per day to fill more than 18 large ferries. That's a lot of seats!

Large futuristic sports stadium

Our Customer Service Team helps around 250,000 travelers during the summer season. That's enough people to fill the Wembley Stadium three times!

Travelers using the Ferryhopper App on their mobile phones

Our mobile app has been downloaded 2 million times (only 76 of those were our parents).
