Off-season ferries - book now or just do it there?


We will be ferrying from Santorini to Paros -then to Naxos -then to Rafina in two weeks (May 22 - May 30). Hotels are all booked.

Being off - season, do you suggest we purchase all these ferry tickets now (online) or will it be easy enough to just do it there
at the time? I have already printed out the itineraries so I know when the ferries and sea jets run and how much they cost. I just didn't know if it would be so busy in May that I need to worry that we may not get ferries if we don't book ahead.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Pre-booking isn't required for these routes, just buy your tickets as you go, on each departure island, either at the ferry port or in a travel office. For Santorini's Blue Star ferry to Paros you can buy Blue Star tickets in Fira at Pelican Travel located on the main square as well as in at least one ticket office in the other main villages, Oia, Kamari and Perissa.
