Anek Lines is a company of maritime transportation. It was established in 1967 with the help of shareholders from Crete, being strongly demanded by the inhabitants of the island who wanted their own company that could connect them to continental Greece. The first ship, “Kydon”, connected the Piraeus to Chania.
Today Anek Lines is one of the most important companies in Greece, connecting continental Greece to Crete and Italy; its fleet is made up by 10 modern and comfortable ferries, enrolled on the Greek naval register certified according to the international systems of safety ISM & ISPS and of quality ISO & HACCP.
From the first crossing, Anek has navigated in the Aegean Sea and in the Adriatic Sea, offering services of incomparable reliability and quality. A 40-year-long navigating tradition made this company the top player in the coastal navigation.
Applying the international Convention STCW of 1995 that refers to the quality of the training of crew members (qualifications, diplomas, past experiences), Anek still managed to keep a leading position in the field of national and international navigation.
