There is always a ferry Piraeus to Santorini at around 07:30 every day, Bluestar ferries.

Blue Star have already published their timetable to Santorini and as Retired Hippy has said it shows the morning sailing as always.

there will also be an hellenic seaways highspeed ferry at around 7.30 am which is a bit quicker and more expensive than the blue star.why not have a look at flying,try aegean or olympic,you might get a bargain !!

Just for the record: The Blue Star from Piraeus (Athens) to Santorini via Paros and Naxos is a daily all year around service. It represents the islanders daily connection between the islands and with Athens and the mainland.

Is it best to go from Piraeus (rather than Rafina) to Santorini? Then from Santorini to Naxos or Paros? Then from Naxos/Paros to Rafina (which, I understand is nearer the airport)? I couldn't find a way to search for Muli-Island trips, i.e. depart from one port and return to another? Thank you!

Piraeus - Santorini is a regular daily all year around route. You will reach Piraeus in appr. 1 hr from the airport.

The same Blue Star route calls in at Naxos (2 hrs journey from Santorini) and Paros (3 hrs) when returning from Santorini.

VagabundaLoca

For Santorini direct you have to go from Piraeus. From Rafina they go as far as Paros/Naxos in summer only. You could change ferries on Paros/Naxos for Santorini, but the connection might not work out.

There was one hi-season Cat that did go Rafina <> Santorini in 2009 however that ferry seems to change route every year so...a maybe.

There are some ferries Paros/Naxos to Rafina in summer hi-season, but there will always be more to Piraeus which is an all year route.

As I recall, the catamarans between Rafina and Naxos/Santorini started in mid-June this year. It's highly unlikely those ferries will be operating in mid to late May when VagabundaLoca will be travelling. Piraeus is a safer bet.
