From Naxos is easy to organize a day trip to Santorini, you can choose to take the normal ferry and than use the buses to visit but I found much more confortable, given the short time, to book a day tour in one of the many travel agency in town.
The boat left the port at 7.15, the trip last about 2 hours and if you look carefully you might get lucky as I did and see douphins swimming along the boat. Take your food if you want a morning snack, the boatìs bar will be of course expensive and with a small selection, btw the coffee was awful either.
The aproach by sea to Santorini is hard to describe, so impressive and dramatic that it would be worth the trip even if you would just turn around ang go back without visiting the villages.
At the port there were a private bus with a tour guide that took us easily to Oia Village and than to Thira village. They left us enaugh time to look around and have a refreshing drink and the guide gave us enaugh informations. They did not took us around the villages, just let us wonder on our own that I liked best.
We arrived back in Naxos at 8.30pm. The day trip was sure exhausting but gave us a pretty good idea about Santorini and made the experience much easyer than it would have been organizing a day like this on our own.
Be aware that due to the strong wind in all Cycladic island, the navigation with a small boat like those can get pretty rough. If you get sea sick bring your medication and take them even if at the port the sea seems to be calm. If the sea get strong with high waves, be very carefull on the boat, sit and try to hold on on something. I have seen people falling and hitting their head bad because they took the boat as a playgound and were jumping along with the waves.
