Visiting Delos on our own in the afternoon

We are on a Royal Caribbean cruise and will be visiting Mykonos on 23 Oct. The ship arrives (by tender) at 1 pm.

What are the chances of us visiting Delos on our own, having read that ferries to Delos are only in the mornings?

The cruise ship company is offering a shore excursion to Delos for £44, but we think it will be cheaper for us to DIY.

Here you can find information about Delos and opening hours (it close at 3 pm):

Delos is not inhabited, and there are no ordinary ferries.

Boats to Delos leave Mykonos old port at 9, 10, & 11 am, so you will have missed them. I don't know how else you can get to Delos on your own, so the cruise ship's excursion seems to be your only choice. :o)

greek-traveller and Heimdall have given you the correct information for last year. However, I have seen a website somewhere that says there will be boats in an afternoon this year at the times given by Delos T, and that it is going to be open on Mondays.

I was slightly wrong. It wasn't a website I saw, it was this thread:
