Any very late night ferry departures from Athens?

Hi, on an average year what are the options, if any, at peak season (mid July) regarding late ferry departures to the islands?Our plane lands at 21.30 to Athens on a Saturday night, are there any departures around midnight or is this a total no go?

Just wondering if an overnight in Athens can be avoided and we can be on our way to the islands that first time?We're devoting a couple of days to Athens at the end of our trip.

Thanks.

Essentially your options are zero with that flight arrival time.

You have to regard it as in good time for the early morning ferries the next day.

There are no departures from about ~23:55 - 07:00. Most days nothing later than ~21:00.

This year there is the Blue Star2 departing from Piraeus on Saturdays at 23:55 (July-early September) heading for Amorgos, Patmos, Leros, Kos and Rhodes but do not count on it too much - timetables change from year to year. That's about it, late evening departures are rather rare but do happen in some years.

Thank you both for replies.Looks like the best option would be to get a hotel for the night in Piraeus so.
