If I arrive at Pireus port and just want a ticket for the next available ferry to either Agistri, Poros, Aegina, Spetses or Hydra what are the chance of getting a seat or do you always need to pre-book? My travel dates will be last week in August, returning first week of September. Also, same question on my return from whichever Island I ended up on.
I just like the idea of arriving and going to any of the above islands. Is the port easy to navigate ie are all the ticket offices together and do certain ones only do certain island or do they all service all of the different islands?
Obviously I can't pre book any accommodation if I do this so what are the chances of getting something once I arrive on one of the islands? I suppose I will have to post that question on the various island forums.
Any help / tips welcome as I have never done this before but just want to try it once to see if it lives up to expectation (and is possible). I have holidayed in Greece over the last 20 of so years so but always done packaged trips which are now so limited on which islands are available.
