Boat from Santorini to Crete

Jump to last reply

Hello all

Wondering if the Greece experts can give me some guidance on boats from Santorini to Crete?

We have decided to start our holiday in Santorini and will be travelling mid-August from Santorini to Crete (destination in Crete unknown at this stage but likely to be Western crete as we fly home from Chania). So I am assuming the best way to go is to take a boat from Santorini to Heraklion.

I've had a look at the websites and found that Hellenic Seaways and Sea Jets both offer daily sailings in August. Both of these are in the evening - the timing on the Sea Jets boat is better as it arrives at 18:30 in Heraklion whereas the Hellenic Seaways arrives an hour later. Given that we will then have to pick up hire car and drive to our destination, ideally I would like to arrive earlier in Heraklion.

So, my question: does anyone know if there is another ferry company that might sail to Heraklion earlier in the day?

Many thanks

Jane
