A Milos Mykonos ferry service runs once a day during the summer months. The Milos to Mykonos ferry takes 3 hours and 10 minutes, and is operated by SeaJets.
Getting to Mykonos from Milos
As Mykonos has a small international airport, it can be a good choice as a next island to visit after Milos for some people looking for a last Greek island to add to their travel itinerary.
This route might also appeal to anyone that has started their Greek island hopping adventure in Santorini, and wants to work their way through some of the islands.
It must be said though, that Mykonos is not exactly the closest island to Milos, and there will need to be an allowance for some travel time by ferry. During the summer, the direct Milos Mykonos ferries takes just over 3 hours.
Note: Although both Milos and Mykonos have airports, flying from between Milos and Mykonos is not possible.
Ferries from Milos to Mykonos
During the height of summer, you can expect one daily ferry from Milos to Mykonos. These ferries to Mykonos from Milos are operated by SeaJets.
The summer ferry from Milos going to Mykonos takes around 3 hours and 10 minutes. It can be quite an expensive ticket due to the ferry speed, so it might be a route that budget conscious travelers have a think about.
This service is specifically laid on for the summer tourist season, so if you wanted to travel outside that period, you may need to find an indirect route. Typically, this would mean going via another island such as Paros or Naxos first.
If you want to check schedules and book tickets for the ferry online, check out Ferryhopper. They'll have up to date prices as well. Just keep in mind that ferry schedules are sometimes only uploaded a couple of months in advance.
Milos Mykonos Ferry Schedules
From time to time, there does appear to be a second ferry added on to this route leaving from Milos island to Mykonos. There doesn't appear to be any logic to it though – some weeks it's not there at all, other weeks it appears twice!
This is why I recommend using Ferryhopper to check ticket prices and see which ferry operators make trips on this route.
