Enquiries at the various agents in Kalami I was told that this was not running yet so on a visit to Kassiopi we booked from there for much less cost. However we later discovered that there was a cruise from Kalami on the same evening and that the one we were on stopped at Koulura. As it happens it was great fun going all the way from Kassiopi and seeing the sights on the way and we were lucky we have a car. This is just to let you know that you need to keep checking to see if the trip is available...it is really worth doing.

We booked this one last year with the Sunshine Club travel and picked it up at Kouloura.

We've done this trip a few times, booking both in Kalami and in Kassiopi.  It costs more if you book in Kalami as transport to Kassiopi when necessary (if the boat is not picking up at Kouloura) and back from Kassiopi is included.  The excursion boats from Kassiopi do not usually go into Kouloura after dark. 
If you just want transport to and from Corfu Town this is not the cheapest way to do it but we enjoy the boat ride and it is definitely our favourite way to get to town.  You get great views from the boat and, especially on the return when it's dark and lights are on, you notice villages up in the hills that you don't necessarily spot in day light. 
Absolutely agree with Lily's Gran - this trip is well worth doing. 
We are not on Corfu till October this year so I'm hoping this trip is still running then.

Are we there yet?
We've been and come back but we're going again.

The boat did call in at Kouloura on our return...a bit scary for those getting off there. My main point was that no-one in Kalami could/would book it for us as they said it wasn't running. I gather that at the last minute a group of 8 booked the speed boat from Kalami, the agents did not let us know that there were places available, although they promised to do so (there would have been room for us). The motto is either go from Kassiopi if you have transport, or persuade others to book with you for the speed boat from Kalami. Either way don't miss it...it is brilliant.

We booked the trip in Kassiopi (Cosmic) last year. We were surprised when the boat stopped off in Kouloura to pick up and drop off on return
Keep taking your, take a holiday in kassiopi pills.

We had a great evening on the Corfu by Night.

Booked at Sunshine Travel with the lovely and most helpfull Angelika.
Taken to Kaloura by Spiro's her husband, a most pleasent gent!
Boarded at the jetty like royalty (all the good seats had gone) No matter
It can get a little cool in particular on the return.
Good stroll around The Town, a little cricket, leather on willow.
Cappucino on the Liston, with my credit card!!!
A delightful meal in our favourite little Square (jJust off the main drag) Can't remember the name, no matter, it's our secret.
Return to Kaloura under a magnificent red sky! Collected and driven back to KALAMI!
These are the days of our lives!
Do it! Youl'e LOVE IT!!!

It's the first thing on my list (which consists of one thing) to do. 
Last year, as we approached to dock in Corfu, everybody rushed to the back of the boat to get off, and the lady in charge, shouted very loudly for everyone to SIT DOWN! Made me laugh!!
Looking forward to it already...been looking forward to it all year.
