See below for ferry times and detailed guides about Heraklion and Santorini.
Heraklion is the largest city and the capital of Crete. Heraklion offers a wealth of activities and sites to discover: the impressive ruins of Knossos are near the town centre, the venetian fortress of Rocca al Mare in the inner harbor, the Heraklion Archeological Museum, the Historical Museum of Crete, the Water City and Aqua Plus water parks and the Amoudara beach are some of the best attractions in Heraklion.
Santorini's ferry port is situated to the east of the island of Thira, the largest of the archipelago of volcanic islands that make up Santorini, in the town of Ormos Athinios. There are buses from the port to almost all other areas of the island, so travelling around Santorini is relatively easy. The biggest town on the island, Fira (or Thira), is approximately 3 miles away and a lovely place to stay or visit.
Santorini is a circular archipelago of volcanic islands with a reputation for spectacular beauty and a dynamic nightlife scene. There are also many superb beaches with perfect golden sand and even some unique beaches with black or red sand that are almost exclusive to the island. The beaches are also great for the many beach parties that take place at night, as well as snorkelling with the incredible Greek sea life and around old shipwrecks off of the coasts.

On the whole my journey was fine, uneventful which is good. My only upset was my husband and I were seated rows apart but we're told we were to sit in the seats allocated, fortunately the 2 seats beside me were empty so my husband was able to join me one we set sail, apart from that all was well.

The trip was easy and comfortable. The restroom facilities were immaculate. We did not purchase any food on board and provided the mediocre food response in order to submit the survey.
