mykonos to santoriniThe ferry takes about 2.5 hrs to arrive to Santorini from Mykonos and there are about 4 ferries per day from Mykonos to Santorini, especially on the summer/high season from May-September.

The ferry companies that run between Santorini and Mykonos are Seajet and Hellenic Seaways.

You can check all the timetables on the Let’s ferry website and book the one that is more convenient to you.

Please keep in mind that  you cannot board the ferry with your online print-out. You have to pick up the ticket from the ferry departure port, from the kiosks of the ferry company you booked. That is the greek law unfortunately. The ticket print-outs have to be printed only by certified companies (any travel agency in Greece can do it for you too).

These are closed-type ferries with airplane type seats.

That means you cannot really sit outside (like you do at the bigger Bluestar Ferries).

It’s like sitting at an airplane or a bus in a way.

You will be given a numbered seat with your ticket.
