Sochi - Sukhum by sea


Sea traffic will be restored between Sochi and Sukhum. It was discontinued 29 years ago. The Russian city with the capital of Abkhazia will be connected by the Griffin high-speed catamaran next year. On Sunday, October 10, it docked at the Sukhum port in test mode.

"From May 1 to October 1, 2022, we plan to operate regular flights. The test flight showed that it is possible to arrive from Sochi to Sukhum in three hours and 15 minutes," said Mikhail Antoshin, head of the Vodokhod Express company.

The catamaran can accommodate 120 passengers, with an average speed of 24 knots. Within the framework of the sea traffic, one round trip is planned per day - arrival in Sukhum at 11:00, departure from Sukhum at 15:00. The approximate cost of the ticket will be about three thousand rubles. Especially for the reception of Russian citizens by sea, a border and customs control zone was opened in the Sukhumi port, and a terminal was equipped.
