Ferries from Athens to Folegandros

What ferries go to follegandross from Athens please.

I would prefer not to use the Sea cat and woulld like a more conventional ferry which I beleive would be cheaper - there is no time pressure.

We arrive in Athens airport on 12 September 2010 at 6.20pm

Many Thanks

Chris

Ps -_ liked your helpful article on the island very much

Your direct choices would appear to be the 'Superjet' Mon at 07:30. and the 'Vitsentsos Kournaros' at 19:00. The latter is cheaper but inconvenient timing.

Other possibilities, is to go to Syros/Paros/Naxos first, and then to Folegandros, 4x week. That can be done on 'Superslow' cheaper ferries.

Or maybe Serifos/Sifnos/Milos first using the 'Ag.Georgios', which is cheaper and then to Folegandros.

So with plenty of time you have possibilities to avoid the 'Superjet' quite easily.

As Brum Retired Hippy mentions; the Agios Georgeos , sails on Wednesday from Piraeus at 14.55 reaching Folegandros at 21.15 , via Kythnos, Serifos, Sifnos and Milos. The Agios Georgeos is a traditional style ferry.

The Agios Georgios is your boat. Sometimes it goes at 3pm and sometimes it goes at 7:30am. Just depends on the day and date. Don't try to book it. If you're coming in September, just wait until closer to the time when you're coming, and see what's running. They change these around a bit especially in Sept/Oct so don't make too many hard and fast plans yet in case something changes.
