The Corinth canal – Greece – 05/09/2011
On September 2011, me and my family passed the Corinth canal. Our plan was to have our vacation in the beautiful Ionian islands: Ithaca, Lefkas, Paxoi and Corfu.
It is an exciting experience to drive a yacht between two extra high walls (52m.) for about half an hour, since the canal is 6.3 km long (3.9 miles), water depth of 8m (26 feet).
If you intend to pass the Corinth canal, you should turn the VHF on channel 11 and follow the orders of the canal’s officer.
The fees for the passage can be calculated here www.corinthcanal.com/fees1.php
