    Also there are Flying Dolphins which are small high speed Hydrofoils that go to the Saronic Gulf islands which are protected from rough seas by the mainland. These are the best way to get to Hydra and Spetses. In fact from Pireaus the highspeeds are the only way to get to Hydra and Spetses. There are several car ferries a day to Poros, and.

A hydrofoil is a lifting surface, or foil, that operates in are similar in appearance and purpose to aerofoils used by aeroplanes. Boats that use hydrofoil technology are also simply termed hydrofoils. As a hydrofoil craft gains speed, the hydrofoils lift the boat's hull out of the water, decreasing drag and allowing greater speeds.

At low speeds the hull (body of ship) sits in the water and the hydrofoils are totally submerged in the water. As the boat’s speed increases, the hydrofoils create lift. At a certain speed, the lift produced by the hydrofoils equals the sum of of the boat and cargo weights.
