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

The best way to see the rocky island of Folegandros is the daily tour (10.30 - 18.00) with this boat. When the weather is not very windy, the boat makes the round tour with three stops for diving from the boat and two stops in beaches which you can visit only by boat or on foot. Diving in the transparent... More

While it is truly packed the boat, it is a very nice and different way to visit the islands and beaches that are not accessible. Just climb up to the roof deck of the boat and take your sit there for the whole day...dive, swim and eat the nice food that they offer at lunch. Do not expect too much,... More

The effect of a monopolistic company have settled for good on the diaplous boat tour and unfortunately it doesnt look like its going to change. Since noone else does the island tour - Our trip was packed with 48 persons inside the boat, we didnt have where to sit and ended up not being able to see most of the... More
