Travel between Santorini and Mykonos with pregnant wife

Dear All,

We are planning our "Baby mooning" in July (around 10th), we will be covering Athens-Santorini-Mykonos.

Though we have set everything else, one thing am doubtful about:

The travel option between Santorini and Mykonos, My wife will be 6 months pregnant during our travel, we want to avoid catamarans as the ride will be bumpy, my understanding is the other option is taking a flight, we are more keen to take a ferry, though not a bumpy one (Don't mind the extra time taken).

Are there any options between the two islands aside from flight and catamaran?

Really appreciate the help.

-Regards,

Bhisham Lulla.

The only direct car ferry runs once a week and takes 10 hours to get to Mykonos. I'm not sure if this is what your wife would want. On some days of the week it is possible to connect via a third island (Ios, Naxos, Paros) but you need to check the date for yourself www.gtp.gr www.openseas.gr

You need to search for both legs separately - the websites won't show any connecting ferries. The large car ferries are labeled 'cf'.

Not all catamarans are the same. Hellenic Seaways' Highspeed5 is a good compromise - it's a catamaran, but a car carrying one, which means it's big and not very bumpy. Seajets' MasterJet is not bad either as it's also a car-carrying catamaran, only a bit smaller. The catamarans you may want to avoid is the Superjet and Seajet2 - they are very small.

Besides the ferry that Ozzlem has mentioned you can do it via Ios on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The 2 ferry rides are relatively short but there would be a 7 hour wait on Ios.
