Chania to Santorini

Jump to last reply

Have been reading mixed and dated information on the topic and was hoping someone would be able to shed some light:

Going from Chania to Santorini on May 27, 2013, prefer not to fly and committed to staying the previous night in Chania.

My understading is that my option is to catch the 5:30am KTEL bus from Chania arriving in Heraklion around 8:30am, then catch a ferry from there.

We are staying on the Venetian Harbor, ballpark--how far are we away from the bus stop?

Which of the fast ferries would be a more enjoyable experience relative to comfort, amenities, reliable schedule, etc.?

What are my options to purchase tickets for both the bus and ferry? In advance? Day of?

How tenuous is the turnaround time from bus arrival to ticket purchase to boarding the ferry?

Is there any heads-up one should be aware of upon arriving in the port at Santorini?

Finally, is there a bus/ferry option for that day that does not leave so early in the morning?

Much obliged...bdj
