Southern Crete villages by boat question

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to plan a day trip from Chania to the south coast. I would like to take a bus from Chania to Paleochora, spend a couple hours there, then take the boat to Sfakion and bus back to Chania.

I found bus schedules - so if they don't change it looks like there's a bus at 8 from Chania to Paleochora. Looks like a bus from Sfakion back to Chania at 18:30. But I can't find boat schedules (only the duration of the trip - looks like about 3 hours).

So is this doable?
How many boat trips a day go from Paleochora to Sfakion (this will be in July)?
Would we have time to get off for a while in Sougia or Loutro and get the next boat? Is there a 'next' boat?

I've read the 18:30 bus from Sfakion to Chania waits for the boat with hikers coming for Ayia Roumeli. Does this mean the boat and the bus will be very crowded (like so crowded you might not get on)?

Is it possible (and is there any advantage) to do it in reverse? (Do bus from Chania to Sfakion, boat to Paleochora, bus to Chania).
