Types of ferries operating

The conventional ferry Blue Star Delos embarking people from Paros port

Blue Star Delos in Paros Port

Both conventional and high-speed ferries operate the Paros - Naxos route. The Blue Star Ferries company owns the conventional ferries, while high-speed vessels belong to Seajets, Minoan Lines and Blue Star/Hellenic Seaways companies.
Conventional ferries are larger and can transfer hundreds of individuals and vehicles. They are slower and their tickets are more affordable.
On the other hand, high-speed vessels are smaller in size and reach higher velocities. They are faster but have a limited vehicle capacity if any at all and their tickets are more pricey.
Note that the high-speed ones can be affected by windy weather with delays occurring sometimes.
Due to the fact that the distance between the islands is small, we recommend you take a conventional ferry, sit on the deck and enjoy the beautiful views of the Aegean Sea.


Distance & Duration of the trip


The distance between the two ports is 17 nautical miles (20 miles or 27 km).
Due to the islands’ proximity, the trip is brief when the crossing is direct. In particular, the duration of the trip from Paros to Naxos lasts 25-35 minutes with a high-speed vessel and 45-50 minutes with a conventional one.
Some routes, however, do not head directly to Naxos but first approach other islands. In such cases, the duration of the trip is extended.
The fastest vessel is Power Jet by Seajets.


Prices & Tickets


The price of your ticket depends on the seat type you choose and whether you are traveling with a conventional or a high-speed ferry. Ticket prices start from '15' 'EUR' (15 Euros) for a conventional ship and '21' 'EUR' (21 Euros) for a high-speed vessel. Booking a business/ VIP seat is also possible.
Passengers may be eligible for a ticket discount if they belong to one of the following categories: students, children up to 10, families with 3+ children, people with disabilities.
Note: Discount policies are not universal among ferry companies.

Types of seats

Seats in the Sifnos Jet

Ferries boast various types of seats to choose from depending on your preferences. For economy travel, the best option is the standard/economy seats on the deck or indoor lounge. A specific seat cannot be booked in advance, so you will have to board the ferry in time to find one.
For numbered seats, ferries offer VIP or business seats, which are more expensive as they come with luxurious benefits. A cheaper alternative is a comfortable air-type seat.
High-speed vessels only have numbered seats, so even the cheapest tickets come with an air-type seat.


How to find your ferry in the port of Paros (Parikia)

Ferries to Naxos depart from Parikia Port in Paros. The main ferry port of Naxos is located in Naxos Town. The same ports serve both conventional and high-speed ferries. The port of Paros is relatively small, so it will be easy to spot your ferry.
In any case, make sure to arrive at the port at least 60 minutes in advance since there is a lot of congestion around the port, especially during the high season.




A designated area is available for luggage storage on every vessel. Alternatively, you will be allowed to keep your luggage in the seating area or lounge.
Most ferry companies do not have a strict policy regarding luggage. You can carry as much as 40 kg or 1 cubic meter of luggage, with no restrictions in terms of the number of bags per person. Taking your valuable items (wallet, mobile phone, etc.) with you and having them on deck is recommended.


Traveling with a car


To bring your car or motorbike from Paros to Naxos, you will need to book a vehicle ticket. As a driver, you have to get to the port at least one hour before the ship's departure to park your car.
You will not be allowed to enter the garage throughout the trip.
