Ferry from Santorini to Athens- Hellenic Seaway

Hi.

we are planning a week vacation in greece. We have four days in Santorini and then we are planning on taking a ferry to greece for the next 4 days. Our flight back leaves at 17:00 from santorini and we were planning on heading back the morning of the flight. I'm a bit worried about the ferry being delayed and us missing our flight.

Does anyone has experience with those ferries as far as it being delayed? How much extra time should we take? We are planning on using Hellenic Seaway.

Thank You!!

Hey and welcome yaelosh:-) Bit confused here..Santorini IS in Greece..so when you say 'taking ferry to Greece'..do you mean Athens?! Assume you're you flying out of Athens in the morning for your trans flight home?! A little clearing up on your itinerary details here and am sure you'll get great advise here;-) Enjoy!

Hi yaelosh,

Santorini is also a part of Greece :-) Do you aim to go to Athens ?

Sound advice is to always get to the destination where your flight is leaving from for the last night before departure - it saves you from all problems with eventual delays etc.

According to my personal experience, especially during summer period you can estimate a delay of 30-60 minutes. HSW is one of the best companies but sometimes delays can happen during summer..
