Ferries & Sea Buses

(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

ImageFerries and sea buses are used to cross the Bosphorus between Europe and Asia, as well as to the nearby Princes' Islands. Some of the more useful crossings are between Eminönü and Kadiköy; Eminönü and Karaköy; Karaköy and Kadiköy; Besiktas and Üsküdar; Besiktas and Kadiköy; and Karaköy and Haydarpasa.
The ferry that provides the Bosphorus cruise leaves from Eminönü, with stops at Besiktas (near Dolmabahçe Palace and the Çiragan Palace) on its crisscross pattern up the channel. Fares are 4 YTL and the ferry departs at 10:35 and 13:35. Long-distance ferries or the faster sea buses provide transportation to the Princes' Islands (from Eminönü and Kabatas) and to points along the southern coast of the Marmara Sea.
