A new ferry route between Andros and Naxos islands in Greece has been introduced for the summer of 2023. The crossing is once a day and takes just two hours.
Andros to Naxos Ferry Route
Although the Greek islands of Andros and Naxos are fairly close to one another, traveling between them by ferry used to be a problem. In the past, there were no direct ferries, and you used to have to transit through another island such as Syros or Mykonos.
For the summer of 2023 though, SeaJets have introduced a daily ferry from Andros to Naxos. Operating once a day between June and mid September, this ferry crossing takes just 2 hours.
Ferry ticket prices for passengers start at around 40 Euros. For the latest ferry schedules and timetables, take a look at: Ferryscanner
Andros Naxos Ferries
The SeaJets vessel Tera Jet has been allocated for the Andros to Naxos ferry route. The first sailing of the year is scheduled to depart on June 2nd. The last sailing is scheduled for September 10th.
As the year goes on, more sailings may be added to this Andros Naxos ferry route depending on seasonal demand. In the past Fast Ferries have also operated some sporadic crossings between these two islands in the Cyclades.
If you want to travel from Andros to Naxos outside of these scheduled months, you will need to plan an indirect route. The most common one would be Andros to Syros, and then Syros to Naxos. Another option might be to take an Andros to Mykonos ferry, and then the Mykonos to Naxos ferry.
