Buy ferry ticket ahead of time???????

My husband and I are going to be traveling from Santorini to Mykonos on a high speed ferry on September 11, 2015. Should we buy our ticket online ahead of time or wait and buy it either in Athens or at the port the day of? I read that high season ends end of August, but was not sure if the first week in September would be busy or not.

You can comfortably wait to buy your tickets from a ticket agency on Santorini a day or two ahead of your departure to Mykonos.

I would follow the same procedure as Lee. It there have been any adjustments to ferry schedules, you'll have a better chance of surveying the choices on shorter notice.

Thank you so much for the reassurance. I will wait and purchase it there.

Would the above answers be the same for ferry travel in May between Santorini and Naxos and can we wait to purchase tickets until we are on Santorini?

Yes, Carol, you can wait with no fear of it being sold out.
