Urgent messages can be delivered directly to the boats.
Lefkas Canal, which is cut through the salt marsh between the island proper and the mainland,
provides a passage for boats down the E coast of Lefkas.
During your approach to Lefkas/Levkas port or marina from South stay in the separation system (buoys) and beware the shallow water in the strait.
From the North you will encounter the floating bridge of Lefkas.
The floating bridge at the N end Lefkas opens in two ways: A small part of the bridge (a wing) lifts up and small boats can pass or the whole bridge swivels out of the way so larger yachts can pass. The bridge uses VHF Ch 12. During the day the bridge is programmed to open on the hour. Between 21.00h and 06.00h a call is needed to get the bridge to open.
