ferries in late October

I am finding it hard to get information about what ferries will be available to us around October 22. We are arriving on Crete on Oct. 19 and plan to spend 3 or 4 nights before moving on to Athens or possibly trying an overnight in Santorini en route. I can't seem to see if anyone is sailing to Thira at that time. Any suggestions?

1. Re: ferries in late October

It's right at the end of the season, not a regular ferry route, and the all year daily ferries from Crete run direct to Piraeus.

The only certainty at the moment is the usual 'Preveli' Sundays 16:00 from Heraklion or 12:00 from Sitia to Santorini arr 21:40.

You can look at Hellenic Seaways FC4 which may go until end Oct, and Seajets at a later date but they seem to stop by 15 Oct. Maybe try Skyexpress for a flight.

Thanks for the info. Do the schedules expand at all as the season progresses (i.e. as we get closer to the date that routes are added)?
