Amorgos is linked by ferry to Piraeus port (and therefore Athens) throughout the year, with a daily Blue Star Ferries route that stops at Paros, Naxos, the small Cyclades and Amorgos (Katapola or Aegiali). The trip from Piraeus lasts between 8.5 and 10 hours, depending on the route, or 2 to 4 hours from Naxos (again depending on the route).
Speedboat routes in the period from June 1st to the end of September are split into two lines: Sea Jets line from Piraeus to Milos, Folegandros, Santorini and Amorgos, and Hellenic Seaways route from Rafina (the eastern port of Athens) to Syros, Tinos, Mykonos, Paros, Naxos, Koufonissi and Amorgos. Speedboat routes offer much shorter, daytime travelling hours, but fare prices are up to two times more expensive than conventional ferry fares.
The legendary “Skopelitis” is the small, local Amorgos ferry that sets off from Amorgos every day, throughout the year, stops at the Small Cyclades islands and Naxos, and returns in the evening. The Skopelitis is an excellent option for a one-day visit from Amorgos to one of the Small Cyclades islands (Donousa, Koufonissi, Schinoussa, Iraklia) or for an island-hopping tour of Amorgos and one or more of these small islands.
