Karavakia (Greek for ‘small boats’) is the general name for the three different boats that take you from Thessaloniki to the pleasant beaches. They are also referred to as ‘Thessaloniki Waterbus’. The boats themselves are called Agios Giorgos, Konstantis and Olympia. For all three boats, you can choose from two pick-up points: the port and the White Tower. The Agios Giorgos and the Konstantis take you to Neoi Epivates and then Perea. The Olympia gets you to Perea via Agia Triada. The departure times are indicated at the boarding points themselves. But you can also find a handy overview of the departure times on their website.
