• How long is the ferry trip from Athens to Mykonos?
The duration of the ferry trip from Athens to Mykonos varies from a minimum of 2h30m to a maximum of 5h30m, whereas an average time is 4 hours. This depends on the type of vessel (conventional or high-speed), the port of departure (Piraeus or Rafina), the in-between stops to other islands and of course in some occasions the strong winds that occur often in the Aegean sea.

• How much is the ferry from Athens to Mykonos?
Prices depend on the ferry type (conventional or high-speed) and the port of departure (Piraeus or Rafina). Some indicative prices are:

  • €34.5 for the conventional Blue Star Ferries from Piraeus with trip duration around 5 hours and 15 minutes.
  • €29 for the conventional ferry with Fast Ferries from Rafina and trip duration 4 hours and 20 minutes.
  • €49.7 for the high-speed ferries with SeaJets from Rafina with trip duration around 2 hours and 20 minutes.

• What ferries are operating from Athens to Mykonos?
There are two types of vessels operating the route from Athens to Mykonos, the conventional ferries mainly run by the companies: Blue Star Ferries, Golden Star Ferries and Fast Ferries and high-speed ferries run by SeaJet and Golden Star companies.

> Conventional ferries
The conventional type of ferry is a big vessel with many indoor, outdoor spaces and a garage. If you are traveling with a dog, there is an organised kennel but depending on the vessel you can also keep your dog supervised on the deck. You will find restaurants, fast food corners, cafes and small shops with magazines and more, while air conditioning exists in all the interior spaces. The trip with a conventional Blue Star Ferry is the most popular. Bad weather conditions such as strong winds, do not affect this type of vessel very much and are always punctual. Also the trip is much more pleasant due to its size and spaces, as you can enjoy the beautiful sea views and have lunch or coffee.
Last but not least, a useful note regarding this ferry type is that with an extra fee you can take your car along to Mykonos. The ticket price for traveling with this type of vessel is relatively low.
Types of seats: Deck/Economy, Air seats/Economy, Air seat/Business, and cabins with/without view.
Price range: €29 - €34
Vehicule: From €23 (Moto) and from €64 (Car)
Timetable: During the summer season, there are at least 4 operating routes per day for this type of vessel to/from Rafina/Mykonos and 2 from Piraeus.

> High-speed ferries
The high-speed ferries are smaller in size ferries that travel faster. There are no outdoor spaces and passengers remain in the indoor area. Only a limited number of airplane-type seats are available and just one or two coffee shops on deck for passengers. Inside the vessel there is an air conditioning system.
Some SeaJets ferries has a garage and you can carry your car from Athens to Mykonos but this is not always the case with high-speed ferries. The advantage of choosing high-speed ferries is that they sail faster and the price is not that higher than the conventional ferry one.
Unfortunately, because they are small vessels, bad weather conditions affect them and it has been noticed that delays occur often. In case you are travelling with strong winds, you might feel a bit seasick.
Types seats: irplane seat / Economy, Airplane seat / Business and Airplane seat / VIP.
Price range: €46 - €52.7
Vehicule price range: From €22 for a Moto, from €60 for a Car
Timetable: During the summer season, there are 3 ferry crossings per day for this type of vessel to/ from Rafina/ Mykonos and 1 to/ from Piraeus/ Mykonos.

Santorini and Crete (Heraklion) remain the most common island hopping destinations from Mykonos, while Paros and Naxos are also very regular options for travellers who want to visit more than one island at a time.
Some other islands that could be an island-hopping destination from Mykonos are Milos (around 2 daily ferry crossings), Ios (3 ferry daily ferry crossings), Andros (7 ferry crossings daily), Sifnos (1 ferry crossing every day) and many more.

Here are some useful and practical tips to organize your travelling experience efficiently:

  • • If you are travelling to and from Mykonos during the high season (June to mid-September), it is strongly recommended to book your tickets in advance (4 months ahead of your visit) since popular routes like these get fully booked quickly.
  • • Although high-speed vessels go faster, they get affected by the strong winds (meltemia) that blow in the Aegean sea during summer. This causes schedule delays and seasickness to many passengers. A conventional vessel is bigger in size and hardly ever gets affected by the winds.
  • • If you visit Mykonos from Athens (Piraeus or Rafina) during the high season, make sure to be at the port at least 1 hour in advance. The port frequently gets busy and crowded.
  • • When departing from Mykonos keep in mind that the port gets very busy with thousands of travellers embarking or disembarking from the ferries.




Where is the ferry port in Mykonos?
The port where all the ferries arrive and depart in Mykonos is the New Port of Mykonos located 2km away from the town of Mykonos in the Tourlos region. It is a modern and well organised port with some facilities such as coffee shops, ATM and small shops.

How to move around from the port?
At the port, you will find a Bus station (KTEL Buses), a Taxi station, a seabus station (that connects the port with the town of Mykonos via sea) and some car rental companies. Due to the vast amount of tourists visiting the island during summer, it is strongly recommended to have booked your transfer from the Port to your hotel in advance with Greeka.

How to get from the Airport to the Port?
The airport of Mykonos is 6.8km (13 minutes by car) south of the Νew Port of Tourlos. There is a Taxi station with few Taxis waiting during the day, but it is more reliable to book your transfer with Greeka in advance. Also, there is a bus stop in front of the terminal building that can take you to the Town of Mykonos as well as to some other villages. From there, you need an other bus to reach the port.

What is better? Fly or ferry to Mykonos?
Although Mykonos has an airport and flying there is a timesaver, the most common way to travel to the island is by ferry. Due to the limited flights and the high demand, air tickets are pricey. Taking the ferry to Mykonos is recommended. You will find tickets with fixed prices available online. Furthermore, there is no luggage limit nor a fee for it. Lastly, the whole experience of traveling by ferry across the Aegean Sea is really nice, like a cruise and a good introduction to your summer holidays!
