There used to be Nel's ferry two or three times a week from Naxos to Folegandros.
For the last 3 or 4 years NEL and ANEK have together provided four services per week from Paros and Naxos to Folegandros, on Tuesday and Saturday mornings and Wednesday and Friday afternoons, and an additional service from Naxos only on Monday afternoons. All return from Folegandros via the same route the following morning. There have been only minor timing changes to these services over these years (although the actual boats providing some of the services have changed) so it's very likely that they will be running next June.
The journey time between Naxos and Folegandros on these services varies between about 3 hours and 5 hours depending on the route taken. The Superjet will probably be running between Naxos and Folegandros daily (or at least 6 times per week) but its itinerary is less well established than that of the slower ferries so it's presence on the route is less certain. This year journey times were about two and three-quarter hours when it took the most direct route, but almost 4 hours on the days an indirect route via Amorgos was taken.
The cost of a Superjet ticket is about three times that of the slower ferries, and the latter taking a direct route provide a quicker journey than the Superjet taking an indirect route. If the seas are rough the slower ferries are much more stable than the Superjet so in most circumstances if there's a slower ferry available on the day you need to travel it will be by far the better option.Edited: 12:28 pm, September 28, 2012
