Sorry, can't help you with details of the number of boats doing this crossing, but it's about 12 miles from Gaios to Parga (15 from Lakka), so depending on the boat the crossing shouldn't take more than a couple of hours. That's what it took me the last time I crossed by yacht - and we had dolphins for company.

Boats called Captain Hook, Marco Polo and Vicky F do daily round trips from Parga to Paxos, they also go to Anti-Paxos and the Blue Caves before stopping at Gaios for several hours (for lunch & shopping).
They then set off back to Parga around 4pm.
Most of the passengers are on a return day trip, but it is possible to only do one leg of the journey, i.e. just to Paxos or just to Parga.
The boats moor at the Parga Town jetty overnight and it is possible to buy tickets either from the boats, the ticket kiosk or from the many small travel offices dotted along the Parga seafront.
Our personal favourite is Marco Polo, it is smaller than the other two, and the captain, Billy always makes you feel very welcome.
