Your length of stay on Astypalaia-Amorgos (Agiali/Egiali port)-Iraklia-Naxos or Paros-Mykonos or Santorini is going to be decided by your interest, high-shoulder or low seasons, your budget, your available time and the overall pattern of ferry connections, in other words, plan the basic is essential.
I do agree that island Hopping is that much more fun and enjoyable when you have time to be flexible, but believe me windy weather, strikes can and will affect that planes and ferries are subject to delays and even cancellations.
Somebody had said that it’s important to remember that no ferry timetable is watertight.
Online booking service is available by most ferry companies and large ferry agents. Local ferry agents offer ticket service as well. If a service is cancelled you can usually transfer your ticket to the next available service, the local agent might charge an administration fee. Best to book in advance high-speed ferries and overnight ferries especially for the high season and Easter time.
