The ferry company Sarris Cruises was established in 2005 (as affiliate of well-know Greek company “Sarris Cruises” established in 1980). The new company got approved from the Albanian ministry of transport to operate yearly with two vessels of high capacity, and to provide for the first time the transport of cars from Corfu to Saranda. The new vessels are bringing twice a week organized tourist groups from Corfu to Butrint ancient city. New services such as pilotage, boat renting ,organized tours and mooring/berthing services are added to the company portfolio by meeting the needs of our customers. Our core values are based on the historic and traditional relations between Greece (Corfu) and Albania (Saranda).
Established to become a leader in the sector of transport of passengers and cars in Albania, thanks to entrepreneur spirit of two co-founders, the ship owner, devotion and sacrifices of the ferry crew, within a few years Sarris Cruises becomes a reference company in the maritime links between GREECE and Albania ( the Country of Eagles). The company is currently praised for more than 2.5 million passengers being transported from the port of Saranda.
This initiative started in January 2005 with Rena ship (Giorgia was later added) with a capacity of 520 passengers and 18 cars in the line of Saranda- Corfu, due to the relation expansion strategies, modernization of fleet and high level of services provided, SARRIS Cruise presently has the largest fleet in the( Saranda) Albanian market in terms of passenger capacity (up to 520 people) and cars (up to 18 cars) and connecting the ports of Corfu, Patras, Paxos with Saranda with daily departures.
The year 2015 will mark the final recognition of Sarris Cruises, as the market leader at lowest prices, highest level of comfort and safety, and qualitative services for local and foreign tourists. All of this thanks to the local management and dedication of staff and partners.

Sarris Cruises provides more advanced IT technologies for control operations of the transmission of data and interfaces with the Ports Authority beyond a sophisticated and advanced system of booking and fully developed at home.
