Mykonos To Ios Ferry Info (& Ios To Mykonos)
It’s a false idea to think that if you’ve seen one Greek Island, you’ve seen them all. They’re all subtly different in their own ways, and that means checking out as many as you can is a must-do!
The Cyclades Island group is home to one of the most famous Greek islands of them all – Mykonos. But, not everyone chooses to stay on the famous island and may simply want to visit. So, if you’re staying on Iso, another beautiful Cyclades island, and you want to visit Mykonos or even hop over for a longer stay, how do you do it? And, how do you get back from Mykonos to Ios?
The Greek Islands have a very extensive ferry schedule that runs between close-by islands, and these two are very well connected.
Ios to Mykonos Ferry
The Ios to Mykonos ferry schedule connects both Cyclades islands, and two companies dominate it – SeaJets and Golden Star Ferries. The ferry service runs all year round, weather permitting, but it is far less frequent during the winter than the summer months. Prices also vary according to the time of year you’re booking and how far in advance you can book.
It is possible to take your car over with you, but most travelers taking this route will simply be on foot.
You can book from the local ferry office at the port in Ios (or Mykonos) or book online. It depends on which suits you best or how far ahead you plan.
You will find that ferries back to Iso from Mykonos are more frequent, but more on that shortly! If you choose to travel with SeaJets, your journey will take 1 hour 25 minutes, and there are ten ferries per week. Golden Star Ferries has a longer sailing time, at 2 hours 40 minutes, and they sail seven times per week.
The earliest ferry over to Mykonos is around midday, with times changing depending upon the time of year.
Mykonos To Ios Ferry
There are many ferry crossings per day during the summer months from Mykonos to Ios. In total, there are four daily crossings per day during the peak summer months. Again, ferry services are run by either SeaJets or Golden Star Ferries.
From Mykonos to Ios, Golden Star Ferries will take you 1.5 hours, and SeaJets will get you there a little faster, at 1 hour, 5 minutes. The easiest ferry is at 8.45 am, and the last one back is 12.40.
Ferries between Mykonos and Ios tend to be limited to the high summer season, although there are sporadic crossings in winter, weather depending.
