Thira Ios Ferry reviews

  • "Excellent "

    Easy to book on line. I would say it needs to be clearer that the email confirmation needs to be swapped for proper tickets (easy to do once you realise). The seajet was spacious, comfy and speedy. We were pleased with how smoothly it all went. Be aware that embarking is very fast. They turn the boat around in 5 minutes! We would certainly travel this way again.

  • "Santorini to Ios"

    Great trip from Santorini - Ios, boat was over half an hour late on a 35m crossing but we didn’t mind that - seemed to be due to the busy port rather than the ferry company and the journey itself including the embarking and disembarking once in port was incredibly efficient.
