I have read all of the posts and information on the boards. Everyone is super helpful so thank you!!! Here is my dilemna: We are departing Mykonos to go to Santorini on Sunday May 13th. Olympic Air costs est. $389 eu (2 people) but it leaves at a good time and gets to Thira the earliest of all the options. The least amount of travel time wasted in the day. From what I understand it is also the most reliable.
Taking the SeaJet2 to Paros and then BlueStar to Thira is MUCH cheaper at $150.00 eu (2 people) and more adventurous and scenic, but it does get to Thira 2 hours later than the air option at 3:30PM. I also understand that SeaJets do have cancellations and might not be 100% reliable. Hellenic's schedule does not fit with BlueStar's for that day and is too late.
Who thinks it is best to just spend the $230.00 extra on air and not worry about the risk of ferry cancellations? Am I being overly concerned about that risk? Would hate to have a cancellation and then have to shuffle hotels around and lose more money to make it all happen. Seems like there is really only time to make one choice for that day and if something goes wrong, then that travel day is over.
