    Hi there

    It is doable but only into Northern Cyprus (Turkish side) and not into the Greek side - but if you need to get to the south of the island, then its very easy to cross over the border in Nicosia.

    Both car and passenger ferries run daily between Turkey's Mediterranean coast and the port of Girne (Kyrenia) in northern (Turkish) Cyprus.

    Most service is to and from Taşucu, the small port near Silifke, east of Alanya and west of Adana on the Turkish Med coast. In summer, additional catamaran passenger ferries operate to and from Alanya (3-1/2 hours).

    You can travel to/from both Taşucu and Alanya by bus. The nearest airport and train station for Tasucu are at Adana. For Alanya, the nearest airport is Antalya Airport.

    Fast catamaran passenger ferries ("sea bus") depart Girne for Taşucu every morning at 09:30 am, and depart Taşucu for Girne at 11:30 am. The voyage takes about two hours and costs about TL68 one-way, or TL115 round-trip, per person, taxes included. Discounts are offered for students and children 7 to 12 years of age (kids six and younger float free).

    Slower car ferries depart Girne at 12:00 noon daily except Sunday, and depart Taşucu at 24:00 midnight daily except Friday. The voyage takes four or five hours. Passengers pay slightly less than on the fast catamaran passenger ferry. Cars cost TL150, small trucks cost TL180, each way (no reduction for round-trip ticket purchase).

    For further information and reservations, you can try to contact the Fergün Shipping Company (Fergün Denizcilik) and Akgünler Shipping. http://www.fergun.net/
