Getting from Athens Airport to Port of Rafina

Can anyone assist me in what my options would be for getting from the Athens airport to Rafina port? I thought I had read that there was some sort of bus/shuttle that was 1 euro. I would rather not take a taxi and we should have plenty of time to get there as our plane comes in at 9am and our boat doesn't leave until 3pm. Thanks for the help!

It's more than that. I think it's the same price as the other airport buses, €3.2. It leaves from out side the arrivals hall every 20-30 minutes and the trip to Rafina is around 30 minutes or so. Get your tickets from the kiosk outside Door 5 on the arrivals level. Yes, you have plenty of time.

Buses for Rafina leave on the Hotel Sofitel side of the Arrivals level, not where the X95, X96, etc. depart. Buy your tickets, which I believe are still €3, on the bus. You will have a long wait for your ferry to depart, so find a good taverna, and have a leisurely lunch.

Further clarification: the ticket kiosk mentioned by BLL is for city buses. Airport to Rafina buses are operated by KTEL Attica, which is an intercity service. At the airport tickets are sold on the bus itself.
