Transfer and Taxi from the Port of Chania
Port Souda is a significant passenger and commercial port of Chania. It nestles within the southern area of Souda Bay, to the east from Chania. It must be distinguished from the old Venetian port of Chania, which is the home only for sailing vessels and fishing boats.
Port Souda has always been a place of strategic importance for Crete because of its convenient location in the western area of the island. It was a kind of marine link, connecting Chania with the Suez Canal, Gibraltar, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Red Sea.
The port of Souda is the second upon size on Crete after the Heraklion Ferry Port. It caters to the needs of inland and foreign vessels, which mainly come from Cyprus and Egypt.
Chania’s port is one of the safest ports in the given area. This peculiarity results from its location in Souda Bay, which is closed and provides excellent protection from unfavorable weather. Port Souda services cruise ships, merchant vessels, and ferries.
On the north coast of Souda Bay, you can see the Greek naval station and NATO naval base. The civilian ships are prohibited within this military area.
Port Souda provides a regular connection with the ports of Greek islands and the port of Piraeus. It services a lot of cruise vessels, which deliver travelers onto the picturesque Greek islands.

The Cost of a Transfer to the Port of Chania
If you come to Crete by ferry, you can reach any desirable location from the port by taxi. The ports in Greece feature a rather complicated structure. Thus, it requires plenty of effort to run with heavy suitcases from one wharf to another in order to find a city taxi. Furthermore, the Greek taxi drivers try to get a maximum from their passengers – they apply charges for extra services, including help, the exceeding amount of baggage, traffic issues, etc.
When a customer chooses a transfer, he automatically avoids all the difficulties mentioned above: the fee for service comprises total length of a trip and a class of a vehicle. The final cost is calculated upon such a scheme: 1 kilometer costs 1 euro. Extra facilities like help with baggage, child seats, and all necessary consultations are offered free of charge.
