About the Batumi Ferry

The Batumi Sochi ferry is not a regular ferry. It's actually a hydrofoil: a lifting surface out of the water. Which means the hull of the ferry gets lifted out of the water. This way the ferry can gain more speed. However this also can result in more sea sickness when there are waves around. And in this part of the Black Sea: the waves can be wild and high. When you look on travel review sites you can read that this ferry can be quite a challenge for some passengers.
