Greece in February: any day tours to the islands?

My friends and I are planning to spend 5 days in Athens this coming February. We would like to take a day tour to one of the nearby islands. But it seems there are no such tours in the winter time - or are there??? If so, please, help us find them!

It is very easy to take a ferry to Aegina from Piraeus without a tour. The metro goes right to Piraeus. The ferry tickets are very inexpensive. The ride to Aegina is fairly short and there is a lovely temple on the island. We took a taxi to the temple and the driver waited for us to look around and then drove us back to the town.

Nikki, thanks for the information. But do you if the ferries run in the winter months?

I don't have definite information about the ferry schedules, but there are people living there year round and I can't imagine there isn't year-round ferry service for them. We went in March.

Ferries certainly run all year. There are islanders who commute to work on the mainland. This website includes links to ferry timetables and other information:

I believe Mykonos is too far for a day trip.
