Santorini to Naxos – Ferry Essentials

  • is the best way to buy ferry tickets for Santorini to Naxos ferries. It’s also good for researching ferry timetables, costs, and schedules.
  • Most ferries do not sell out. But for peace of mind, book tickets 2 to 3 months in advance.
  • Most tickets (when booked through FerryHopper) are e-tickets which means you do not have to pick up a paper ticket before boarding.
  • If a ticket purchased online doesn’t have a barcode that usually means you’ll need to pick up a real ticket when in Greece. This is most often done at the ferry port 30 to 45 minutes before departure. Don’t worry about pick up – it’s easy and effortless and usually very close to your actual ferry.
  • Ferries will leave on-time from their first departure port in the morning (usually large ports like Piraeus, Heraklio, and Rhodes) but will be late arriving and departing from all onward ports (e.g. Naxos). Usually getting later as the day progresses.
  • Most areas in Greece, including Santorini and Naxos, have public transportation strikes throughout the year. These strikes can affect all forms of transit, including, buses, trains, ferries, flights, and taxis. During strikes no buses, no ferries, and only a handful of trains and flights will depart on time (or at all); taxis tend to be the least affected mode of transport. Though strikes can occur any time, there is always a huge strike on May 1. Avoid booking any ferries, flights, or trains that day.

Santorini to Naxos Ferry Schedule

Santorini and Naxos are two of the most commonly-visited islands of the Cyclades group in Greece, and there are many daily ferries between the two during the busy summer months. There are more frequent ferries in July and August than in May, June, and September, and October. Ferries depart from the Athinios Port in Santorini from early morning until mid-afternoon, with the latest ferry leaving Santorini at about 5:30pm. The length of the ride is about an hour and a half, but varies depending on what boat you choose. Blue Star ferries are larger, more stable, and generally slower, usually taking about 2 hours for the journey. Smaller high-speed catamarans can make the journey in half that time. Ticket prices range from about €30 to €80.
