  1. Hello Dave
    Firstly , thank you for all your blogs they have been most helpful. We are planning a 2 week island hopping your next may around the 7th flying into Santorini. We want to stay in the hora on Folengendros. Do you know when the ferry timetable comes out from Santorini as at the moment it shows the latest ferry at 3 pm but we don’t land until 12.20pm
    From Manchester . Do you know if there is a later ferry please?

    • Hi Joanne,
      The full timetables will not be released until the New Year at the earliest. I’ve often seen ferry schedules for the summer only fully released in April around Greek Easter.
