Santorini Speedboat Tickets to Oia-Book now or buy at port?


Recommended Posts

The boats did not seem to be even close to sold out when we were there a week ago. They were running them continuously from two locations. These weren't speedboats though; they were more like tenders or double decker tourist boats, and they left from nearby where the tenders from the ship docked. The ride took 15-20 minutes, and was very scenic. We did not buy in advance because we wanted to be flexible and not worry about which ship tender we were able to get on. We were able to get on one within a few minutes of our tender docking.

We've started booking various excursions, but I must say for some reason am finding Santorini a bit overwhelming. Horror stories of cable cars, donkeys, etc. etc.


So, if I read this correctly, we can tender over to the Island, buy a ticket for some kind of boat (speed or tender type), "cruise" to Oia, spend a few hours there, "cruise" back to the bottom of the hill, then tender back to the ship. Is this accurate? We really only want to see Oia for a few hours.


How much are the boat tickets to get to Oia (return)?

Enjoy, just a couple of things to bear in mind, it is a short, steep walk from the boat to the bus and then again in Fira from the bus to the main shopping area.

We had to pay for our cable car tickets this time when I'd thought they had been included in August (but I may be wrong !).
