Many travelers probably don’t even consider Rafina a possible departure port if they are heading to one of the Cyclades , but if you are exploring Attica’s east cost you are better off taking a ferry from Rafina than traveling to Athens and get a ferry from Piraeus.

Are there any overnight journeys between Rafina and Mykonos?

No.

Where can I buy tickets from?

If you prefer to arrange all your travel bookings online, then you should be pleased to find out you can book your ticket ferry online as well, at most two months prior to departure.

You can also book via a travel agent but they’ll have to use a Greek travel agency anyway so you are better off buying through one yourself.

Or you can buy the tickets directly in the port. If you are not traveling during the weekend right in the middle of the high season you don’t need to worry much about booking in advance.

Does everyone charge the same prices?

The sites where you can book your ticket promise you will be paying the same price as if you were buying from the port. Even if there’s a difference, it’s not significant.

@Sigi: firstly, we are not a ferry booking team. secondly, the schedule for May 2010 will be available only next year. May is spring and low-season for the ferries.
