The ferry SpeedRunner leaving Milos

The route from Milos to Santorini is served by both conventional and high speed/catamaran ferries.
High-speed vessels are smaller and allow passengers to reach their destinations faster. Conventional ferries are larger and slower, but they are also more economical.
Additionally, conventional ferries have big garages and can transport many vehicles. On the other hand, not all high-speed vessels have a garage and, those that do, only have a limited vehicle capacity.
Lastly, high-speed ferries are affected by bad weather conditions more easily, so delays sometimes occur.


Distance & Duration of the trip


The distance between the two islands is 52 nautical miles (60 miles or 96 kilometers).
The duration of the trip depends on the ferry type you are traveling with. The journey with a high-speed vessel takes approximately 2 hours, while the trip with a conventional ferry lasts around 5 hours and 20 minutes. However, there may be high-speed ferries that need more time to reach Santorini, as they stop at other islands along the way too.
The fastest ferry is SpeedRunner Jet by Seajets.


Prices & Tickets


A standard ticket costs between '16' 'EUR' (16 euros) and '93.7' 'EUR' (93.7 euros), while the price of a business-class/VIP ticket ranges from '36' 'EUR' (36 euros) to '118.7' 'EUR' (118.7 euros), depending on the company and the type of vessel.

Types of seats


Standard/economy seats are the most popular and affordable option. In conventional ferries, these seats are situated on the deck or in internal lounges and they are not numbered, so your ticket does not correspond to a specific seat. Therefore, in order to get a comfortable one, we recommend boarding the ferry as soon as possible.
Another option is the airline seats, which are located in separate lounges. They are numbered, more comfortable and they are the most affordable option among the seats you can reserve. For luxury travel, there are also Business/VIP seats, which are situated in a separate lounge and are more expensive.
In high-speed ferries, there are only numbered seats, so a standard ticket corresponds to an airline seat.


How to find your ferry in the port of Milos

The port and village of Adamanantas in Milos

Adamanantas, the main port of Milos

Ferries to Santorini depart from Adamantas Port, which is located around 4 km from Plaka, Milos's capital. It is a small port, so spotting your ferry is very easy.

Ferries bound for Santorini arrive at Athinios Port, which is located 8 km from Fira (the island's capital).

Both islands are highly popular among both Greeks and foreigners. The high number of visitors causes traffic within and around the port, so being there at least 1 hour before the official departure time is strongly recommended.

Luggage policies in Greek ferries are quite flexible.
Most companies allow 40 kg or 0.5 cubic meters of luggage per passenger and provide a luggage storage area on each ferry. If you wish, though, you can take your luggage with you to the lounges or the deck (if available).
It is highly recommended that you leave bulky suitcases in the designated area and take only your personal belongings (wallet, keys, mobile phone, etc.) with you upstairs.


Traveling with a car


In order to take your car or motorbike to Santorini, you need to purchase a vehicle ticket.
Drivers should be at the port 60-90 minutes before the official departure time.
For safety reasons, entering the garage while the ferry is sailing is forbidden.
Note: Many car rental companies do not allow customers to ferry their vehicles. We recommend avoiding purchasing a vehicle ticket before contacting your car rental company.


Alternative ways to reach Santorini


Though both islands have an airport, there are no direct flights between Milos and Santorini, as the National Airport of Milos is only connected to Athens. However, Santorini boasts an international airport receiving flights from several European countries. Alternatively, you can fly to Athens or Mykonos and then take a ferry to Santorini.
