There are two direct ferries a week sailing from Paros to Serifos island in Greece, and the journey takes two hours. An indirect ferry route via the island of Sifnos takes longer, but does mean you can travel any day of the week.
How to get from Paros to Serifos
The two Cyclades islands of Paros and Serifos may look close together on a map, but there are only two direct ferries a week sailing from one to the other.
These direct ferries are operated by Blue Star Ferries, and the journey time takes just two hours.
The short Paros Serifos ferry is quite an affordable journey, with ticket prices starting at just 8.00 Euro.

Indirect Ferries to Serifos from Paros
If the dates that the direct Paros to Serifos ferries sail don't line up for you, it might be worth considering taking an indirect route.
The obvious choice here would be to take a ferry from Paros to Sifnos, swap vessels, and then take a ferry from Sifnos to Serifos.
Of course, this journey will take you longer, and will certainly be more expensive. You may also need to spend a night on Sifnos if the ferry connections don't work out quite right.
