Israel Transportation: 136 reviews and 133 photos


Salamis Lines now says that they carry passengers too!!
See: Salamis

Can I get a ferry/ship/boat to Israel from Cyprus/Turkey/Greece?

The question is asked often.

Sadly there are no longer any ferries to Israel.
There are a few shipping companies that still carry bulk cargo, but they don't carry passengers.

The only way you can get to Israel by boat is on one of the fancy cruise ships that call at the port of Ashkelon/Haifa and then go on to Alexandria, Egypt.

Mode: TO
Type: Ship/Boat

Review Helpfulness: 4 out of 5 stars
