There are no boats for rent on Koufonissi. All the beaches on Ano Koufonissi are within 20 - 40 minutes walking distance from the village. You can also get to the farthest ones by a passenger boat from the port. I think this is on even hours: 10, 12, 2, 4, 6. The same boat goes to Kato Koufonissi on the odd hours: 11, 1, 3, 5.
Greek lesson: There is no such thing as Ano Koufinisia or Kato Koufonisia, they are Epano Koufonisi and Kato Koufonisi. (Greater Koufonisi and Lesser Koufonisi, except that Kato is bigger than Epano!). The word Koufonisia (with a on the end) is the plural and refers to both islands together. Epano is usually abbreivated to Pano or Ano.Edited: 7:10 pm, August 08, 2011
You don't need to hire a boat, the island is small enough to walk to any of the beaches. The furthest one, Pori, is only 45 min walk 1½ mi (2 Km) by the inland route, and about an hour 2 mi(3 Km) via the coastal route past all the beaches.
Times for the boats to the beaches and to Kato Koufonissi are listed in the ferry ticket agency on the main st, also of course the ferries.
I don't know whether rental boats are available.
