Ferries in September

We are flying into Athens at 11:30 on September 17th. What are the chances to get to IOS on a same day?

We're debating between staying he first night in Athens and leave to Ios in the morning, or go to Pireaus and trying to get the ferry (preferable the fast one). At this point the ferries schedules haven't been posted yet for September. Should I book a hotel in Ios for the 17th? We think we should be in Pireus at about 14:00.

Help please!!!

Wait a while and see what happens w/ferry schedules....this is a popular run and you should have no problems even w/same day departure but would definetely give it more time before deciding on hotels bookings....Enjoy!

another option is to fly either to santorini or naxos and get connecting ferry

naxos flights from athens were only 45 euros 1 way with olympic travel ok

A hi-speed catamaran is very unlikely then, a ferry around 16:00 to 18:00 would be more likely, however you are heading rapidly into the low season by 17th Sept. Flying to Naxos does not help as you will only pick up the same ferry, if there is one. As you appear to be going to Santorini as well why not just fly their and then ferry to Ios. You can then deal on almost certainties.

flying to naxos saves you taxi or bus fare to pireaus plus the waiting around ok,plus what you spend on drink and food on the boat ,

plus you dont have to leave the airport,
