Daily cruise from Santorini

We are staying in Santorini for 4 nights in mid June 2013' Would anyone recommend a good daily cruise or island hop to go on and is it better to book ahead of time or while we are there? Crete was a thought. Thank you

Ferry schedules don't allow for more than a couple of hours on nearby Ios, which is the closest island to Santorini other than Thirassia, which is across the caldera. There are caldera/volcano cruises and private or semi-private catamaran cruises available as well.

Crete is NOT a possibility as a daytrip.

For a general overview, here's what I wrote about a daytrip to Thirassia back in 2010 (its got some photos at the end).

Just in case you'd like to see a non-touristy Greek island.

Seajet 2 has a completely new schedule for this summer. It leaves Santorini on Monday to Thursday at 09:00 and goes to Ios, Naxos, Paros, Mykonos, Tinos and Rafina. It return via the same route to Santorini, supposedly at 20:55, which means sometime after that.

So providing it actually runs this schedule and the weather is good it would be possible to use it for day trips to Ios, Naxos, Paros or even Mykonos, but the amount of time you have on the island would decrease the further away from Santorini that you go.
