Where can I buy tickets from?

You can buy tickets online here but there are certain limitations especially related to how far in advance you can purchase. You can also buy the tickets from travel agencies. But the simplest way to get them is directly from the ports. If you plan to travel during the weekend in the middle of the peak season, it’s advisable to book them several days in advance.

Does everyone charge the same prices?

The prices are the same on line, at travel agencies and in the ports.

Important note:

The ferry companies submit their schedules each Friday to the Ministry of Mercantile Marine so it’s advisable to double check the schedules couple of weeks prior to departure.

does your company do daily return trip FROM Paros to Myconos


John Chaplin

Cristina July 5, 2009 at 4:38 am

@John Chaplin: the website isn’t associated with a ferry company. There are two daily departures from Paros to Mykonos, listed at the end of the article (please read carefully).

frankie July 14, 2009 at 5:29 am

Is there any ferry from Paros to Mykonos on 18 Oct 2009?
I would like to get to Mykonos from Santorini, but there is no direct sailing. Thus, I am planning to get Paros first on 18 Oct 2009 and then go to Mykonos. Please advise.

Cristina July 14, 2009 at 6:22 am

yes, there’s a ferry from Paros to Mykonos leaving at 11 a.m. from Paros (getss at 11:40 a.m in Mykonos). It’s run by Sea Jets and an economy ticket costs 19 euros/one way.

frankie July 14, 2009 at 6:52 am

Dear Cristina,

Thank you very much for your help, one more thing I would like to clarify whether it is the only way to get to Mykonos from Santorini on 18. Is there any alternative way?

Deeply appreciate


Cristina July 14, 2009 at 7:41 am


there isn’t a direct ferry from Santorini to Mykonos on Oct 18. An alternative would be flying but the flight is via Athens (on Aegean Airlines) and adds up to 120 euros/one way, at least.

If you choose to depart from Santorini at 7 a.m. on oct 18 you have a 50 min window to catch the ferry to Mykonos. I surely hope it won’t be delayed. Maybe you could leave Santorini a day earlier and stay a night in Paros?

frankie July 14, 2009 at 9:08 am

Thank you for your information (That is the most valuable I have ever seen in the internet world).

According to your information(http://www.greecelogue.com/ferries-from-santorini-to-paros-and-return.html), there is no ferry on 17 Oct 2009 (Sat). The sailing is only available on Wed. and Sunday. In addition, the departure time of the ferry from Santorini to Paros should be 8:30 a.m. or 7 a.m.?

Cristina July 14, 2009 at 9:26 am

the thing is that they keep updating those schedules and ADD more departures. So i need to update them yet again.
the info i gave you today is directly from a booking engine (the time, etc).
can you email me please at greece@logueit.com ? I’ll give you more details.

Joan August 9, 2009 at 5:57 am

Arriving to Mykonos airport at 13.20 Wednesday 12 August, WHERE do I catch the ferry from Mykonos to Paos and then WHERE from Paros to Antiparos?? And are there plenty taxis available?

Cristina August 9, 2009 at 6:42 am

@Joan: ferries depart from the port (some islands have several ports and the name of the port is always written on your ticket). There are buses and taxis in Mykonos to get from the airport to the port. I would advise to get a taxi though. Fares are standard and are printed in the stations.

Paul and Zoe October 25, 2009 at 2:42 pm

Hi all,

We are arriving in Mykonos in mid (16th) May next year does anyone know what time the ferries go to Paros and on which days?

Cristina October 25, 2009 at 3:05 pm

@Paul & Zoe: the schedule changes each year so you need to wait to know the exact days and times.

Bill Townsend April 28, 2010 at 2:39 am

Dear Cristina.
My wife and I arrive in Mykonos on Wednesday 5th May at 1320hrs. What ferry is available to Paros. Your website does not show low season timetables. Also can you tell me the best way to get from the airport to the ferryport and how long it should take.


Cristina April 28, 2010 at 5:05 am

@Bill: there’s a ferry from Mykonos to Paros at 10 a.m. on May 5 so it’s definitely a good idea to stay for a night on the island before heading to Paros. The next day (May 6, Thu) there are 2 ferries: at 10 a.m. and at 2:55 p.m. An economy non-smoking seat on the 10 a.m. ferry costs 22 euros/person/one way (journey time: 40 min). Your best bet would be a taxi but since you have to go to a hotel anyway, they’ll guide you.

Bill Townsend May 3, 2010 at 7:46 am

Dear Cristina,
Great help thank you. Another question. We need to get from Paros to Amorgos on 12th May. I have only found one ferry at 2200 hrs to Aegiali port which arrives at 0110 hrs on 13th May. Is that the only one available on that day?

Cristina May 3, 2010 at 8:06 am

@Bill: you are welcome and glad I could help. If that’s the only one you could find, that’s the only one you can book via the system. It is possible to find other connections but they are not listed by booking sites. So you are left with asking in the port.

Bill Townsend May 3, 2010 at 4:50 pm

Thank you very much for the info. You really do provide a very helpful service and your replies are very quick indeed.
Very best wishes


Cristina May 4, 2010 at 2:08 am

@Bill: you are welcome; feel free to email me at greece [at] logueit.com.

Anthony May 18, 2010 at 9:56 am

Hi there, please could you confirm the times (if any) of the ferries travelling from Mykonos to Paros tomorrow, Wednesday 19th May? We arrive at Mykonos airport at 13.20 – would it be advisable to stay in Mykonos until the following day?

Many thanks,


Cristina May 19, 2010 at 2:18 am

@anthony: On the booking website I cannot check b/c it’s impossible to book for the day you leave but I could find a ferry at 10 a.m. (in the official schedule).
The next ferry is on Thu at 10 a.m. so yeah, you should stay overnight.

Stuart Hill May 30, 2010 at 4:16 pm

I am visiting Mykonos on a package holiday fo 2 weeks on 17th September. I would like to hop over to Paros for a few days. Can I safely assume that there will be a regular service this late in the season? Can you point me to any shedules? or are any days definately off?

Cristina May 31, 2010 at 3:10 am

@Stuart: From Mykonos to Paros there are connections that late in the season, as follow:
daily at 10 a.m. until October 10, 2010. The company is Sea Jets Consortium. So yes, you can safely assume you can get to Paros in early autumn by ferry. However, you won’t be able to book the ticket online until July or August.

Tania July 6, 2010 at 2:40 am


I am visiting Paros from 7 September to 9 September 2010 and would like to do a day trip to Mykonos on 8 September. I see that I can leave Paros at 11.10 the morning, but there is no ferry back again. Do you have any suggestions how I can back to Paros on the same day again?



Cristina July 6, 2010 at 3:00 am

@Tania: I found the ferry from Paros to Mykonos at 11:10 a.m. on Sept 8 (and can be booked online already) ; but the only ferry back (available in the reservation system) is at 10 a.m. on Sept 8. The official schedule lists only this connection. Looks like you’ll be stuck in Mykonos for a night?
