Airport to Pireaus

I fly into athens airport about 12 noon.

Im carrying 2 bags one of which is a windsurf bag.

I need to get to the port of pireaus. Ive travelled there before but without the windsurf bag,

The bag is about 250cm in length, 30cm height and 80cm wide and 32kgs in weight.

I would like an option of travel that wont cost an arm and a leg. I looked into pre-booking a taxi but all i can find is people that say i need to hire a mini-bus. Athens is a big airport and alot of windsurfers use it. how do i get past this. thanks for replies.

its not cheaper to fly. 1 hold bag = 20kg, 1 windsurf bag = 32kg. These all have added prices. I looked at flights from athens to mytilene and i dont have an option to add extra baggage, so unless im blind i cant travel by air.

People carry a lot strange stuff on the bus to Pireus. Thats what I would try.

As for the strike, Yes you are likely to be affected. If there is a strike , no ferries will leave Pireus until after midnight. I such circumstances the schedules sometimes may be changed. As an example the Blue Star normally scheduled for the Cyclades at 17:30 has been sent off at 23:59. Other times it is just cancelled. Look up the actual companys web site.
