Syros to Turkey

Hi, can anyone tell me of any ferry companies that will take us to Turkey. I have been told the best route from Mykynos is to go to Syros-Samos-kusadasi. I can only find a Hellenic ferry to Syros but i cant seem to find any to Samos then to Kusadasi. I like to book in advance if possible. Also how long would a trip like this take in total? And would it be more cost effective then flying? Would love any tips :)

Currently by ferry you have to go from Syros 23:00 to Samos town. There are several daily ferries Mykonos > Syros.

You arrive in Samos town around 06:00-07:30 go across to the ticket agencies and buy a ticket for the Samos > Kusadasi ferry. You may get a morning ferry, if not the afternoon.

Buy tickets in Mykonos/Syros for the Greek ferries, and Samos town for the ferry to Turkey.


Greek ferry prices are standard and proportional to distance, which you get from ferry company websites, you guesstimate any will do.

Realistically it will take 12 hours start to finish if you can get a morning connection to Turkey. Whilst that sounds long, the overnight ferry from Syros to Samos passes quickly and the only frustration could be queueing to got through passport control/customs into Turkey!
