I am giving 4/5 for all (but one) of the stars below. All was good - not "oh my god exceptional!" but good, so, I would be happy to recommend. The ferry did arrive a bit late, and thus late arriving. it did not affect our travel plans though thankfully. Nice big fast ferry. Grand job

We booked online and found the one travel representative in Chora, Naxos who dispenses Sea Jet tickets with no problem (just look for Sea Jet on his store sign). Upon review of our receipt, he printed out our tickets. The crew helped us stow our bags and the trip was relatively uneventful, which is a good thing. We left 1/2 an hour late but embarkation and disembarkation was orderly and quick. I'd use Sea Jet again.

The Greek island of Naxos is part of the Cyclades group of islands that lie in the Aegean Sea. Naxos City, or Chora, is the island's largest town and capital and is built amphitheatrically on the island's west coast. It is also home to one of the biggest ports in the Aegean Sea. The town is popular with tourists and as a result there are many bars, restaurants and cafes to cater for them. The small island of Palatia, which extends from the mainland of Naxos, is the town's emblem. Located on the small island is Portara, which is a monument resembling a door standing alone, without any walls attached to either side. A visit to Portara is advisable, especially after your swim, whilst the sun is setting.
The island is also well known for its food and for producing the famous Naxian potatoes, wine, Kitron liquor productions and the popular cheese called Graviera. There are many restaurants located throughout the island serving local produce to the many tourists who visit.
From the island's port ferries depart to Piraeus (Athens) and to the other islands in the Cyclades.
The Greek island of Mykonos is one of the famous Cyclades islands, and exudes a distinctive glamour, gloss and Greek personality. Mykonos Town (Hora) is the island's capital and is central to the island's tourism. Hora is well known for its Old Port ferry quay, bustling Taxi Square (Plateia Manto Mavrogenous), waterfront tavernas, museums, trendy boutiques and whitewashed houses, particularly within its Little Venice quarter. For many tourists staying on Mykonos, it is the island's beaches that make the holiday. Beaches are plentiful on the island and most have beautiful, golden sand and are easy to reach. From June onwards, they can start to become rather busy, and most beaches just aren't large enough to provide seclusion, although sun loungers are often grouped together. The closest beaches to Hora and not necessarily the best that Mykonos has to offer, but are especially popular, including both Aghios Stefanos Beach and Platis Gialos. However, for the most glitzy, party beaches, head west to the very lively Paradise and Superb Paradise resorts.
There are two ports on the island. The old Mykonos Harbour is where all passenger ferries arrive and the New Port of Tourlos which is mostly used by cruise ships. Ferries from Mykonos depart to Piraeus and Rafina on the Greek mainland and to the other Cyclades islands, the Dodecanese islands and to Crete. Conventional and high speed ferries operate to and from the island.
