Those who wish to travel between Hydra’s villages without walking can hire a water taxi. The water taxi rank is located in Hydra Harbor in front of the Alpha Bank. You’ll probably see lots of donkeys standing around as this is also the area where muleteers wait for customers.
The general number for the water taxi rank is 22980 53690. Many water taxi drivers will give you their private mobile numbers so that you can call them directly if you need their services.
Water taxi rates are per trip and not per person and can legally carry up to 8 people, so if you’ve got a large enough group, they can be an economical way of getting around or taking excursions to the mainland or other islands.
The rates below apply to the cost of a trip, one-way, for all passengers and luggage. Also note that if two separate groups share a taxi, they share this price.
