Mykonos to Thira Ferry

The Mykonos Thira ferry crossing connects two of the most popular tourist destinations located in the Cyclades Islands and is available for booking all year round. There are 3 ferry operators serving this route from Mykonos to Santorini right now. SeaJets make 2 departures per week, Golden Star Ferries make 1 departure per week and Minoan Lines also make 1 departure per week, but only when the tourist season begins in May. It takes 2 hours and 15 minutes for SeaJets to travel the 64 nautical miles (118km) between the Mykonos port and the Thira port in Santorini. This duration may change depending on weather conditions.

The Mykonos ferry port is 4.5km outside of the main town on the western coast of the island. As there are no pavements leading to the entrance, it’s most easily accessible by taxi and public transport. The cheapest option is the Seabus departing from Chora, which drops passengers right outside the ferry terminals. Alternatively, you can book with a private transfer service. However, these can get incredibly busy during the summer so please book in advance to ensure a spot.

All 3 ferry companies operating this route welcome foot passengers and cars onboard their ships from Mykonos to Santorini. Please note that only 1 vehicle is allowed per booking.

Mykonos to Santorini sailing durations and frequency may vary from season to season so we’d advise doing a live check to get the most up to date information.

Mykonos Thira Ferry reviews

  • "Santorini"

    A first class vessel. Chaos at Mykenos port prior to departure with so many people trying to get onto so many sailings but once underway on the correct vessel, a very pleasant 5 hours with stunning scenery. Ample space for all and a chance to see some of the other islands en route. The arrival at Sanntorini is spectacular.

Mykonos to Santorini Ferry

The island of Mykonos, one of the most popular islands with visitors, thanks to its array of beaches and beautiful white washed architecture that the Cyclades Islands are known for, and is also widely visited for its vibrant nightlife that has helped to label it as the ‘Ibiza of Greece’. There are countless ferries that run to Mykonos, from a variety of destinations, including other Cyclades Islands, and the mainland of Greece, and the port is located right in the centre of the main town.

The island of Santorini, an island known for its unique landscapes that were formed by an volcanic explosion thousands of years ago, and now has rugged cliffs, black and red beaches, and the classic underwater crater that is now a popular diving spot. Santorini is one of the most popular ferry destinations, with ferries running from Crete, the Cyclades Islands, the Dodecanese Islands, and the mainland of Greece, making this the ideal spot for either a holiday, or just a transfer.
