Important Ferry Information

If you are travelling to Symi this month there have been major changes to the ferry service for the island which may impact on your travel plans. Please read our travel blog on for regular updates on the situation and the background story to the present situation. Wednesday afternoon arrivals this week need to be aware that the Dodecanese Express will now be departing even earlier, at 17.00. If you have booked your tickets on line Dodecanese Seaways should contact you with your new travelling time but if you have not already booked your ticket we strongly advise that you do so as soon as possible to be sure of getting on the boat. Wednesday morning departures can now travel at either 8 a.m or 10 a.m - there is no longer a 9.15a.m departure. Please change your tickets at Symi Tours, the local agent for Dodecanese Seaways. For further schedule information please go to or contact whoever you have booked your accommodation with. Adriana

I miss Symi, but boy am I pleased not to do that commute!

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
