As is often the case the NW wind was at force 6 which meant we could not do the round the island trip. Its still a good day and we thought the 30e price was good value. One less swimming stop would have made lunch a more relaxed stop. It was one hour only and most people went swimming first... More

We stayed for a couple of days in Folegandros, so the best way to have an overall view of the island was to take the boat for the round trip. It cost 30 euro/person, which was a lot, having in mind what you get back. If the weather conditions are good you actually have a roundtrip, else you have a... More

Folegandros has beautiful beaches but they are difficult to access. I had only 48 hours on that island and wanted to maximize my time. We took the 6 hours ride that departs from the port for 30 euros per person. The boat goes around the island is weather allows otherwise it does only one coast. Very frequently, it is too... More

A lovely way to spend the day. Circumnavigated the whole island stopping at 5 beautiful beaches where you can swim off the boat. Very pleasant lunch included and you can buy beer, wine, ouzo, minerals. €30 per head. Next time I'll bring goggles and snorkel.

The two most recent reviewers give an accurate description of the trip, the itinerary of which can vary depending on the wind and sea-state. The agents are open about this when you book and while, under ideal conditions, a round-tour would be best, they do stress that this might not happen. I suspect that the day of our trip was... More

The boat tour costs 30 euros per person. The price includes a light lunch. The tour lasts about 5 hours. Tickets have to be bought in advance from Diaplous travel agency in Chora or in Karavostasis (if their office is open). Depending on the weather the boat travels either along the north or south coastline or around the whole island.... More

The boat tour is a nice way to see (half of) the coast of the island of Folegandros; you get a very good view at the very rocky coastline! The tour takes about 5 to 6 hours and first sails to the far end of the Island. On the way back, they stop at 5 or 6 bays with beaches,... More

We were lucky enough to be on the last trip of the season, when the boat had fewer passengers. There was a fairly strong north wind blowing so we stayed on the south side, which was much calmer. We stopped at several beaches to swim in the crystal clear waters. Many of the beaches are only accessible by boat so... More

A really great way to see the Island and its rocky coastline. We had really good weather so went around the whole island. Stopped at some lovely beaches and great swimming spots. Its a 5/6 hour tour, which is personally a bit long for me. 3 hours would of been enough, but that just me. A light lunch is provided.... More
