Ferry Santorini to Mykonos in May?

We are looking at flying from Athens to Santorini, then travelling by ferry to Mykonos and flying back to Athens. Ive heard that the ferries don't go from Santorini to Mykonos on Wednesdays in May, is this fact or fiction?

It's a fact, but only a couple of Wednesdays each month, not every one. If you reverse the order and go to Mykonos first you'll have other options for getting to Santorini on a day that the direct highspeed ferry doesn't operate. There will be a different highspeed ferry from Mykonos to Paros at 10am that only takes 40 minutes, then you can catch the regular car ferry at Noon to take you the rest of the way to Santorini. This is actually a better way to see Santorini for the first time, from the deck of an open ferry entering the caldera, instead of through a dirty window on a highspeed, and you'll reach Santorini a couple of hours before the direct highspeed ferry arrives.

To see the schedule for the direct highspeed, look here: http://www.ferries.gr/hfd The schedule for next May will not be available until sometime in April.

The ferry that has a no-sail day every other Wednesday is FlyingCat 4. There may be other ferries sailing that route on those Wednesdays, but right now is too soon to know.

The 10am ferry mentioned by brotherleelove works well for trips from Mykonos to Santorini, but not vice-versa.

We already have airline tickets from Athens to Santorini and then Mykonos to Athens, so changing directions doesn't help me, but thanks anyway! Anyother suggestions on how to get from San to Myk?

It may be necessary for you to change those tickets.

There is no problem, as I said in another post go via Paros or Syros. It does depend a bit on how much time you have as it will involve a night on Paros or possibly Syros.

But I can assure you it's quite easy and no biggy.
