The duration of the ship's journey depends on the choice of the port and the vessel - 2 till 6 hours.

How to go to the ports of AtticaMeaningful it is to be selected in each case, the flight so that a direct onward possible without overnight stay in Athens (or Mykonos) is
Find out book from the website of the shipping schedules and then to the Internet directly to the shipping company to offer most now an on-line booking.

My advice is: book a flight for the journey to Athens on 05 of the clock in the morning arrives, you certainly have the chance to reach a ship for departure. Best way to book a return flight from Athens after 22 clock. You can also select a target Mykonos Airport, here again is that they should be aware of flight and ferry times. Ferry connections to Mykonos from Tinos, they have to 07.30,13.00 and in the summer months at 21.00 clock. Journey Time: 30-45.
By car from the north or west Raphina is easier to achieve on the motorway (E94) from Patras and Thessaloniki coming towards Athens airport El.Benizelos. Estimate for the arrival of Patras, we in heavy traffic 4 hours drive away. From the motorway exit PALLINI can be reached very quickly and usually without Pikermi jam the harbor Raphina. It makes sense to one hours before storing in the port to be ready to embark. Even longer delays elapse quickly into one of the many port taverns.
A well-intentioned Note The automatic telephone information, even those of the Port Police and the schedules of the Navy Department did not always correspond with the facts, the best source of information are shipping offices and the timetables of the ferries.
