Types of ferries operating


The route from Santorini to Amorgos is served by one conventional and one high-speed vessel.
The Super Jet is a high-speed ferry that allows passengers to reach their destination faster, while the Express Skopelitis is a conventional one, which means that it needs more time to cover the same route. For this reason, the fare for the conventional ferry is more economical than that of the high-speed vessel.
Being a small vessel, the Express Skopelitis has a garage that can transport only a limited number of vehicles, while the Super Jet does not have a garage at all.

The distance between the two islands is 34 nautical miles (39 miles or 62 kilometers).
The duration of the trip is 1 hour and 15 minutes for a high-speed vessel and 5 hours for a conventional one.

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 air-type 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 air-type seat.


How to find your ferry in the port of Santorini

Athinios, the main port of Santorini

Athinios, the main port of Santorini

All ferries depart from Athinios Port, which is situated at the base of the caldera, around 8 kilometers from Fira (the island's capital).

Ferries departing from Santorini arrive at Katapola Port, the main port of Amorgos. Katapola is a 10-minute drive from Chora (the island's capital).

Santorini is immensely popular among Greeks and foreigners alike. The high number of visitors causes traffic around the port, so we strongly recommend being there at least 1 hour before the scheduled departure time.

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 Amorgos, you need to purchase a vehicle ticket.
Drivers should be at the port 1 to 1.5 hours before the official departure time.
For safety reasons, entrance to the garage is forbbiden throughout the crossing.
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 Amorgos


Amorgos does not have an airport, so the only way to reach the island is by ferry. However, Santorini boasts an international airport receiving flights from several European countries. Alternatively, you could fly to the nearby Mykonos, which also has an international airport, and take the ferry from there. Another option is to sail from Athens to Amorgos after landing at the International Airport of Athens.

Amorgos is a quiet island that has become famous thanks to Luc Besson’s The Big Blue, which was filmed there. Though untouched by mass tourism, it boasts fabulous beaches, mysterious caves, a mindblowing natural landscape and great hiking trails that make it one of the hidden gems of the Cyclades. Check out the best things to see and do there in our mini-guide for Amorgos.

Where to go next?


If you’re looking for other nearby destinations that are as tranquil and beautiful as Amorgos, all you have to do is head for the Small Cyclades (Donoussa, Koufonissi, Iraklia and Schinoussa), a cluster of small islands lying between Amorgos and Naxos. The variegated Naxos has something to satisfy all tastes, while the vivid Paros is another great destination thanks to its marvelous beaches. For something completely different, consider visiting Mykonos, which has become world-famous for its vibrant party scene.
