You have to travel independently to Sikinos, package tours have never existed and will in all likelihood never do so. Thanks to its nearness to popular islands like Ios and Santorini, it is quite easy to travel here independently. It is harder to travel from here, it has nothing to do with bad ferry connections, but due to the island's magnetic attraction.

If possibly, the best way is to buy a spare seat on a charter flight to Santorini. If you are lucky, there is a ferry to Sikinos the same day you arrive, if not, you have to stay one night on Santorini. To reach the port of Santorini you take a taxi. The taxis usually wait outside the arrival terminal. The next best option is to go by air to Athens and then continue with ferry from Athens' port at Piraeus. Check the ferry timetables at home. To Piraeus you can go by bus or subway.

The nearest domestic airport is on Santorini.

Sikinos has good ferry connections with a number of islands in the Cyclades, as well as with Athens' port at Piraeus. Unfortunately, none of the large shipping companies operating on Sikinos, Sikinos is only served by small ferries, ferries that don't have the same standard like for example the ferries owned by Blue Star Ferries. At the time of writing, only Aqua Spirit and Adamantios Korais runs on Sikinos.
