Naxos to Sifnos ferry

My wife and I will be in Greece in September. We will be in Athens for two nights (arriving 2/9/13) then flying to Naxos (Agios Prokopios) from 4/9/13 until 11/9/13 then moving to Sifnos (Kamares) for seven nights then on to Milos (Polonia) for another ten nights then back to Athens for two nights then back home on 30/9/13. I'm having trouble finding anything direct from Naxos to Sifnos.....it looks like we may need to ferry to Milos, stay overnight and then ferry to Sifnos the next morning. Is there any better way to do this?

Thanks!

Naxos and Sifnos have never been well connected. You can either change your plans or try connections via Milos or Paros.

It would be more logically to change direction and do Milos first, and then Sifnos.

In September you actually dont need to book accomodation or ferries before you are there, which will leave you more flexible. In areas where ferries dont sail every day, it isn't wise to have fixed the dates long time in beforehand. The only fixed dates should be the arrival to, and departure from Greece.

Thanks for the info....we do have our flight reserved from Milos to Athens so we'll probably stay this way and just do the overnight in Milos on the 11th then to Sifnos on the 12th..

I will continue to check the ferry schedules in August before we leave.

If you were to travel from Naxos to Sifnos a day earlier on Tues 10th you may well find that you can do the trip in one day via Paros. Currently on Tuesdays the Aqua Maria sails from Paros to Sifnos at 18:30. It is only currently scheduled at that time until the end of July. The Aqua Maria is actually deputising for the Aqua Jewel which has been out of service for a few months now. The ferry company, NEL Lines, keep extending the period that Aqua Maria will be deputising. So if this situation carries on until September, and it might well do now, this trip will be possible for you as there are a few ways of getting from Naxos to Paros before 18:30. However, if the Aqua Jewel does come back into service, this journey will be a lot earlier in the day and therefore you won't be able to make the connection. Keep watching the ferry schedules.
