Ferries in the Greek Islands

We are currently booking our Greek island summer 2015 trip. As we are looking into booking our ferries the prices seem to be a little extreme, is this right? From Crete to Santorini it is 60 Euros. From Santorini to the neighbor island of Milos it is another 52euros. Is this right? is there a cheaper website? People say it's cheap and for us we don't see 60euros as cheap, but we could be very wrong. Advice please.

Unless I'm mistaken both those quoted fares are for the highspeed ferries. "Regular" large car ferries are about half the fare (and twice as slow) if you can book them when you need them. For Crete to Santorini your only option is a highspeed ferry unless your timing allows for you to take the Aegeon Pelagos Sea Lines "Prevelis" ferry, which sails once each week. I believe it's on Saturday or Sunday. You can check ferry schedules here: http://www.gtp.gr
