Ferry from Crete to Santorini in early October

First time to Santorini and so would love some help from you guys in the know.

We will be flying from Italy to Crete as unfortunately no direct flights at that time of year.Sad isn't it ?

If anyone could give some suggestions as to where to find details of the ferries and also the quickest route that would be great.

Once we actually workout how to get there I will come back and pester you about hotels :)

Thanks a million.

If you are using gtp, you need to type in HERAKLIO as the name of the port. There are a few ways of spelling it in English. At that time of year the ferries don't run every day on that route and they usually leave early in the morning so if you're unlucky you might have to spend 2 nights on Crete and if you are going back the same way you may have to do the same at the end. Flying to Athens might be a better option as there will be more ferrries to choose from even though it's a longer journey.
