Ferry schedules and ferry tickets for Mykonos

The island of Mykonos is well connected to Athens with daily ferries from the ports of Rafina and Piraeus. Rafina is the most convenient port, as it is closer to Mykonos and hence, the trip duration is shorter. So, if you are planning to jump directly into the ferry, after having landed at Athens airport, you should definitely choose this port. However, Piraeus is easier to reach if you live near Athens city center.

Take the ferry from Rafina to Mykonos

The high-speed ferry takes only 2:30 hours to reach Mykonos from Rafina, while the conventional ones need ~4:30 hours. The ferry schedules are pretty frequent and the tickets are usually quite affordable. During summer the route is served with ~9-10 ferries per day. On the other hand, during the low season, the itineraries are reduced, but there is at least one conventional ferry per day that serves the route from Rafina to Mykonos.

Ferries from Piraeus to Mykonos

Apart from Rafina, there are also both high-speed and conventional ferries departing from Piraeus to Mykonos. In the summer, 3-4 ferries per day operate on this route. During the low season though, this number is reduced to 1-2 setting sail on a daily basis.

Mykonos to Santorini ferry

Another quite popular ferry route is the one connecting Mykonos to Santorini. During summer, there are nine ferries per day that serve this route. Even if most of these ferries are high-speed ones, some of them also have a garage allowing you to take your car with you. In our dedicated pages, you can find the latest schedules and prices for this route.

Mykonos to Heraklion ferry

Apart from Athens, Mykonos is well connected to Heraklion (Crete), with two or three high-speed ferries per day, operated by SeaJets and Minoan Lines. The tickets for both companies cost around ~70€ and the trip lasts 4h and 30mins.

Island-hopping around Mykonos

Mykonos is also directly connected to Tinos (just a 30m sail) and Andros with several daily ferries during the whole year. For travellers that want to combine Mykonos with island-hopping in the rest of Cyclades, can go from Mykonos to Paros and Naxos (only during the summer) with several daily ferries and continue their adventure there.

Mykonos: New Port or Old Port?

Mykonos has two ferry ports, the "Old Port" and the "New Port", both located at the outskirts of the main town (Chora), and at a distance of one kilometer with each other. The Old Port is usually occupied by smaller ferries, while larger ones (even large catamarans) use the "New Port". However, and subject to weather conditions or ferry traffic, the departure/arrival port of a ferry might change at the last minute. Thus, we suggest that you confirm the departure port of your ferry with the local agent or the port authorities.

Mykonos has direct ferry connections with 39 ports:
