Ferry from Paros to Samos?

Have been to the greece ferry site but no mention of Samos on the list of destinations. Any recent info on this? Trip is June. Athens, Santorini, Paros, Samos, Izmir, Istanbul. Need any connection to Samos!
Thanks!

The destination may be listed as the port, as opposed to the island. In alot of cases the port and the island are the same (Mykonos, Paros, etc) but Samos has two ports. Try looking for Vathy (Vathi) or Karlovassi (Neo Karlovasi). Also be aware that your schedule options may be limited. Paros is on the main Piraeus-Mykonos-Paros-Naxos Santorini run, where Samos will be on another route. You may be able to connect in Mykonos, but that connection may only occur every couple of days, so timing will be key. Otherwise, while it sounds odd, it may be quicker and have more frequent connections to go back to Piraeus, then to Samos. Another option to mention, is since Samos is pretty far, if going back to Athens seems quickest, also check out Aegean Air. They have reasonable priced flights to the islands
