The Mega Jet is also scheduled to leave Heraklion at 8:45 every day for Santorini but the operative word is 'scheduled' because sometimes it leaves daily and sometimes it leaves every day except Tuesday and Saturday. It leaves Santorini for Heraklion at 6:30pm. Make sure you check this with a travel agency before booking hotels based on this information. This is also just a passenger highspeed. For those with a car you can take the ferry boat Prevelis which goes from Heraklion, Crete to Santorini and Milos on Wednesday at 8:50am and Sunday at 6:20pm. You can also take this boat to Sitia, Kassos, Karpathos and Rhodes on Tuesday at 5:50am and Saturday at 1:30pm.

You should book hotels and ferries with a qualified Greek travel agency who can make changes due to any schedule disruptions such as strikes, rough weather or engine failure. See
