Thira (Santorini) to Naxos Ferry

The Thira Naxos ferry crossing connects two of the most visited holiday destinations in the Cyclades Islands and is available all year round for booking. There are currently 3 ferry companies operating this service from Santorini to Naxos. Blue Star Ferries provide 1 weekly departure, SeaJets provide 2 weekly departures and Minoan Lines also 1 weekly departure, but only when the tourist season gets underway. The distance between the Thira port and the Naxos port is about 43 nautical miles (80km), with SeaJets offering the fastest ferry time in just 1 hour and 10 minutes. This short duration makes it a perfect day trip for tourists exploring the Cyclades Islands.

More commonly known as Athinios, the Thira ferry port is situated on the southwest coast of Santorini and can be reached by taxi and public transport. You can book a private transfer service from anywhere on the island with Welcome Pickups. However, this can get very busy during the high season. Alternatively, the public bus service departs every day from the town of Fira and operates in accordance with the ferry timetables.

All 3 operators welcome foot passengers and cars onboard their Santorini to Naxos ferry service. Please be mindful that only 1 vehicle is allowed per booking due to limited garage space.

Thira Naxos Ferry reviews

  • "Ferry crossing Kos to Santorini "

    Although the departure was delayed the vessel itself and the actual crossing was an absolute pleasure. The only negative was that there was no where to store our luggage at the terminal in Kos during the day. We arrived on Kos (from Bodrum) at 9am and left at 8pm and were stuck with our luggage for the entire time on Kos.

Naxos from Santorini Ferry Duration

Ferry sail times are defined not only by which operator you are travelling with, but also by outside factors such as weather conditions at the time of sail, so there can be a great variety between each ferry. On average, ferries can take anywhere between 1 hour 10 minutes with Seajets, and 2 hours and 15 minutes with Blue Star Ferries, so be sure to check before you travel what your expected sail time will be.

Santorini Ferry to Naxos Price

Ferry fares can be defined by a variety of factors, such as what time of year you are sailing, which operator you are sailing with, and how you are travelling, such as by foot or with your car, so there is not one ferry price for the Santorini to Naxos ferry route. Instead, we recommend checking out our useful fare finder tool, to find the best ferries at the best price for you, and be sure to sign up to our email newsletter to be the first to hear about our latest deals and offers.

Santorini to Naxos Ferry Timetable

As there are so many different ferries that run per week to Naxos from Santorini, there is not a specific ferry timetable, especially as ferry sailings can be affected by a number of different factors, such as time of year, and which ferry operator you are travelling with. Indeed, some of the operators for this route only provide ferries during certain periods of the year, such as summer time, so ferry timetables can wildly vary, but we will always provide the most relevant information when you are looking to make your booking.
