Blue Star Ferries -

The secret beauty of the Aegean Sea

Blue Star Ferries, under the Corporate Responsibility program "With you as our destination" and, are delighted to announce the start of a very special collaboration, aimed at promoting local customs and traditions of the Aegean islands.

The purpose of this program is to make known the Aegean Islands’ cultural wealth and to strengthen the cultural bond between passengers and the places they visit. The acquaintance of travelers with traditions of the Aegean Sea enhances our tourism product and provides additional incentives to increase traffic to our islands not only in high season but also during periods of low tourist traffic. 

This page will be continuously updated and enriched with new photographs of the customs and traditions of the Aegean islands.
