Can you tell me how reliable and TIMELY the ferries are? Do they run like clockwork??
Returning back to Athens on Saturday October 27.
I could take the ferry that leaves Santorini 1200/noon and arrives 1640 (4:40pm) for my flight that evening. Flight departs 7:45pm. Is that enough time between arrival at port and getting to airport (how far apart are they?) and is there enough time to check-in/security etc.?
The other options/flights I'm looking at for either Santorini or Mykonosis are both very early, departing around 8 am and arrive Athens after 9 am so I have most of a day to wander but I'll have to lug around my suitcase. I will already have a couple of days in Athens before the islands so don't really need the last day there but I don't want to cut it too close for my flight back to USA.
I'm basically just looking at RyanAir flights because I think their planes are bigger. I saw Olympic plane that had propellers and those scare me.
What is a 4 hour ferry ride like? The shorter ferry ride arrives too late for sure. Is it scenic? or you're just inside a boat in a big room with seats? Is there a bar?
Thanks for your help.
