Useful Information of Fourni
Internet web page of Fournous: www.geocities.com/fournoi_Korseon
Several times a week the Piraeus-Samos car-ferries go to Fourni. However, their timetables do not depend on flight schedules at the airport of Athen or Samos, so plan to stay for a night or two.
Hydrofoils along the Samos-Patmos route include Fourni in their schedule in summer once or twice a week. While this is the fastest way to cross the sea, these old Russian-designed yellow-blue sporty vessels need the occasional unscheduled maintenance job, most likely just as you were planning to book a fare. Note: Stormy seas keep hydrofoils moored in port. Can also be book at Irini Karla.
Lefteris Kotteras is the man you can count on - at least if it's about seafaring he is a reliable and capable partner. Lefteris transports Humans as well as animals between the archipelago of Fourni. If the weather is settled he also goes to Samos, Ikaria and Patmos.
Port Police Fourni
Everytime a ship arrives at the harbour, the port police take centre stage, clad in sparkling white and equipped with whistles. Depending on the weather they decide who can sail from the port and who is allowed to enter. In fact, for timetable information approaching any degree of reliability, they are your best source. Particularly when there is no ship in sight, that is when you find them in their first floor office above Nikos restaurant. Port Police Fourni Phone:
