Corinth Canal

We transited the Corinth Canal today.  It’s pretty impressive:

  • Four miles long,
  • Seventy feet wide
  • Rock walls that reach three hundred feet above. 

There’s quite a current flowing inside the channel which was a surprise, and an even swifter cash flow out of our wallet and going into the port office when we paid €295 to use it. 


A spectacular experience, especially with the added bonus of dolphins, turtles, and thousands of jellyfish as we made our way to the canal this morning.


The Canal has a fascinating history that is well worth a read. Here’s a short history you may want to check out:

Excited and ready to transit
