    Check your car in at the port office and then it's only your passport needed to embark. On return drive straight to loading area and present passport. SIMPLE! On-board facilities are perfectly adequate and cheap. Who needs luxury when the trip is only 50 minutes.

  • "Super efficient ferry service"

    8pm service between Tenerife and La Gomera; ferry arrived, efficient loading, very comfortable interior and easy ride over, only 50 minutes. Choice of bars/cafe, cold beers, wine, coffee etc. and great cakes! Only one point, before boarding you are given the option of leaving your bag on a trailer that is taken onto the ferry. One trailer has lockable lockers but there's no sign how they work and no-one was able to tell us - seems you need a euro coin but obviously no-one had them so everyone gave up. There is also an open trailer which seemed perfectly safe to use. Or you can take your bag on board with you if you don't mind carrying it.
