Transportion issues on Antiparos

On May 31, we would like to ferry over from Paros where we are staying to Antiparos so we can tour the sea caves via a boat tour. How should we get from the port to Ag. Georgios where I believe the boat departs from. Should we rent a car, take a taxi or travel by bus which I hear is unpredictable at that time of year. How long of a ride is it and what would the cheapest, easiest plan be? We will also be traveling back that same day to Paros.

[Edited] I'd expect the end of May to have decent bus schedule frequency but I don't know Antiparos itself. I see this notation on their municiple web site.

GETTING AROUND ON ANTIPAROS:
The Municipal Bus departs from the Port of Antiparos, opposite Ayia Marina. It offers the following routes:

  • Port - Cave

  • Port - Beaches: Panayia, Glyfa, Apantima, Soros, Ayios Yeorgios.

The route schedule varies, depending on the season of the year. The ticket is priced at 1.60 euros and is purchased aboard the bus.

To rent an automobile, motorcycle, scooter, quad, bicycle or inflatable vessel, please consult the Business and Professional
There are no taxis on Antiparos.

For Paros island bus schedules are posted through March. No buses on Sundays. An all-day pass costs €9 or you can pay €2-3 onboard the bus for a single ride.

IF you are doing a boat tour that has a web site, why not ask the tour company??? Since the RS expert says there is no taxi on Antiparos, surely a boat-tour official cannot expect tourist business from tourist who cannot reach the departure port!! I'll bet that there is some kind of shuttle .... or that the tour office will be able to tell you the EXACT bus to take to reach the port, & return.
