Trying to sort out how to get some Crete to Santorini..

We're getting to Crete(chania area) tomorrow. Trying everything to find a way to Santorini the following tuesday. Looks like there is only one ferry running there on saturdays only. No flights either. Does anyone know of other ferry or options?? Help would be much appreciated! Thank : )

There are no other options besides returning to Athens first. For the sake of not wasting time fly from Chania back to Athens and on to Santorini.

That's right! Crete > Athens > Santorini is the route after summer catamarans stop running — unless, of course, you can time your trip for the once-a-week Prevelis, which is scheduled for Sunday 28th October. :o)

Hi,

That is the only ferry Sun 28 Oct 16:00, 'Preveli'. One per week is it.

Your other options are to go via Piraeus/Athens by ferry/flight. Or the best option is to stay on Crete. It's a load larger and more varied than Santorini.

There is another option: Fly from Heraklion to Rhodes on a Wednesday and then take the Prevelis from Rhodes to Santorini on Thursday. Probably slower than taking ferries via Piraeus, though.

Or, to do it all by sea, take the Prevleis from Heraklion or Sitia to Rhodes on a Wednesday, then the same ferry to Santorini the following day. Two full days at sea!
