If you don't use an e-ticket, in Aegean islands around the port you will find all the central agencies for the ferry companies. These will always be open around the time of your ferry. By going to a central agency you won't pay to have your ticket printed. There will be a sign outside the door or you'll be referred there by the agency.
If you go to a non central agency may have to pay a small fee to get your ticket - normally a couple of Euros.
To get your ticket printed make sure you have a print out or a copy of your reservation on your phone and a valid form of photographic ID - for example your passport or ID card if you can also use it for travel.
The cost with a conventional ferry is 49€.
Ikaria is the ideal island of Aegean for families. There are many choices of beaches, local histories and entertainment that can satisfy the tastes of both young and old.
Aegean islands are most popular in the summer months but good weather normally lasts until the end of September and the first weeks of October. There are also plenty of islands in the Aegean that you can visit also in the winter.
Yes, you can take your dog or other pet on the ferry but it isn't possible to book a space in the kennel in advance. All Greek ships by law must have some kennel space.
If you are travelling on conventional ferry (not a fast ferry or catamaran) there is normally space available in the kennels and you should also be able to have your dog on all deck areas (but not inside) with you. Strictly speaking, this at the discretion of the ferry company but in general you should have no issues - though please take a muzzle with you just in case and keep your dog on a leash at all times. Small sized dogs and cats can travel in the ship as long as they stay inside a special travel box.
The other option, for absolute peace of mind, is to book a pet cabin. These are like normal cabins but have linoleum flooring. They are also available for day crossings at reasonable prices. This way you don't have to worry about finding space in the kennels and you and your dog or cat can relax. In July and August ferries can get very busy with people and other dogs.
Fast ferries and catamarans will also have kennels but these will be limited in number. In addition, the majority of fast ferries (though there are exceptions) don't have open deck space accessible throughout the journey, so you will not be able to stay out with your pet during your crossing. However, if your pet is small and inside a travel box you will be able to keep him or her inside.
Samos is the most famous for young people, has many beaches, restaurants and bars where fun finishes in the morning.
