Ferry to Naxos

Ferry from Naxos to Santorini

Some ferries that travel from Athens to Naxos travel onwards to Santorini. This means the same operators and ships can be used

  • Seajets (1h 15m Worldchampionship Jet, 2h 45m by Superjet)
  • Blue Star Ferries (2h 30m)
  • Minoan Lines (1h 35m)

The travel durations are different due to different ships; we would choose the standard options here instead of the speedy ones. This ferry is often used with the ferry from Athens to Naxos. Many people Island hop in Greece and then travel from Athens to Naxos and eventually so Santorini (and or Mykonos).
