Try and buy tickets for the fast boats. The big one is very slow. 4 hours from athens to mykonos. We got deck seats but not very comfortable. 4 hours is a lot to be seated in those chairs.

We took 2 trips with them, Heraklion-Santorini and Santorini-Mykonos. We had booked executive class with a table. Though both times they departed little late but the journey was very comfortable. The executive class was luxurious with big comfortable seats. Snack bar was quite good though...More

We took the boat from Piraeus to Spetses. I was very satisfied with my trip. It's a little bit expensive but fast and on time. I would definitely recommend this company.

I made the mistake to eat at the Nissos Mykonos restaurant I ordered spaghetti with red sauce beef Very hard meat and tasteless and I would say overpriced but I would have mind if the food was nice.

We took a return ferry to Hydra from Piraeus. It was efficient, fast, not expensive. We too a dolphin and a cat. Very quick. Roomy enough. Quick on and off. Even with tons of people and tons of luggage.

Used Hellenic Seaways ship Nissos Chios from Athens to Mykonos. We booked numbered seats in lounges but nobody really cares about this and the window seats are occupied by early birds. At around €20 per person, it’s worthwhile to get a cabin if you’re traveling...More

I would email them directly. Being November they will probably reduce frequency. Leaving out of Athens the same day you are catching a ferry is always risky. We usually leave a day in advance. We got caught on mykonos... More

Sorry, I don’t know if they have a weekly pass, we used the fast ferry from Santorini to Mykonos, which we got the tickets in advance. We have been in Greece three times, and we love it. Good luck.
