  • "Excellent service"

    It was a pleasure to use Blue Star ferries for our 30 minute crossing from Mykonos to Tinos and back during our recent holiday. The tickets were excellent value; I had paid a small premium to book seats, which ensured a relaxed journey. The procedures for embarking and disembarking were very well organized, and the staff were friendly and helpful throughout. The ship, including the lavatories, were spotlessly clean. The ferry timetable was excellent for our travel needs, despite being at the end of the holiday season.I would have no hesitation in recommending Blue Star Ferry services.

Ios Guide

Forming one of the Cyclades group of islands, the Greek island of Ios is located in the Aegean Sea and lies around mid way between the island of Naxos and the island of Santorini. The island's terrain is characterised by hills and cliffs that lead down to the sea on most sides of the island. Located on the north west coast is the island's port which is only a short distance from the village of Chora. The trip between Chora and the port can be made on foot which will take you along a steep donkey path, and takes around 15 minutes. The village is characterised by narrow paths and streets most of which have now been taken over by bars, restaurants, shops and night clubs to cater for tourists.

There are ferries from the island's port to Piraeus and Rafina with a crossing time of between 4 1/2 hours and 8 hours, depending on ferry type, route and destination. During the summer months Ios is also connected by ferry to the other islands of the Cyclades.
