Ferry advice


We're traveling in Greece in late June/early July. As we finish our week in the islands, we'd like to ferry one-way back to Athens from Paros on Saturday, July 3.

Right now I don't see many options on the Greek ferry web site. There are only three ferries showing right now. Does anyone know if they add ferries as the summer season starts up and if so, how far in advance should I buy our tickets?

Thanks so much

3 is a good selection. Hellenic Seaways should be adding a highspeed ferry sometime soon. Keep checking their website and eventually you'll see it.

We are in the same boat so to speak. The Hellenic highspeed shows up on the schedule till June 18 and then nothing. It leaves Paros late afternoon and arrives in Athens at 9:45 pm. I did read a notice somewhere that said their schedule would be carried over into the summer.

There are around 4 large ferries per day from Paros to Piraeus, that's very frequent. No need to book in advance at all. Just buy a ticket the day before on Paros. Also probably 1-2 to Rafina as well.

Not worth waiting for the Hellenic Seaways Catamaran schedule, it's twice the price. For half the price take the earlier conventional ferries, Bluestar and others.

Thanks everyone. I'll just wait and purchase our tickets when we're in Athens.
