Larger boats operate at peak season, with a journey time of an hour.
At Chrissi Island, boats moor at the small pier at Vougiou Mati on the sheltered south side, where there is a taverna and services such as toilets and showers. A small bar offers drinks and refreshments on the north beach (‘Golden Beach’).
