Hey and welcome amiller6:-) I have no clue if there is even service between these 2 isles direct.. am sure a local.. someone in the know, will kick in and advise;-) Regardless, it's way too early for Fall schedules to be posted.. the Summer ones are barely out.. and oftentimes, schedule changes occur around mid-Sept! You can always keep an eye out at www.gtp.gr/ www.openseas.gr/ Happy planning.. and enJOY!
In mid September the ferry that is on the Samos- Ikaria - (Mykonos) - Syros - Piraeus route does not run daily and may not be stopping at Mykonos. Mykonos tend to be put on the itinerary only for the high season (end July-early September). You may have to go to Syros first and get a ferry to Mykonos from there (daily). And the same going back to Ikaria.Edited: 9:40 pm, February 22, 2013
Probably by mid September you will have to go via Syros rather than direct assuming schedules are similar to last year. The Mykonos stop is dropped out of season.
No real problem as Syros <> Mykonos is a regular connection.
Rather easier from Ikaria are are Fourni and Samos that has remained consistant over the years on that ferry line, Also supplemented by a small local ferry, ask in Ag. Kirikos.
Thanks for all the info. How long is the trip to Mykonos via Syros? Is there a possibility of getting sea sick? Will it be like the trip from Cape Cod to Nantucket ~ a large fast ferry? How many Euros, ballpark? I have searched the Ferry sites - but didn't try the. Ikaria - Syros - Mykonos route. When we get to Mykonos how would we get around? Buses? We are a group of 5 older women one of us has a house on Ikaria.
There is a big conventional car ferry on this route. You can check travel times and prices by searching February timetables and starting a mock reservation
If the system won't allow you to enter both legs (Ikaria-Syros and Syros-Mykonos) on the same date, check them separately.
Yes, there are public buses in Mykonos that can take you from the port to Mykonos Town and other villages and beaches from there.Edited: 9:06 am, February 23, 2013
