Overall rating

The outward journey was superb! the welcome was perfect, friendly and very human. The journey was quite quick. Yes, we saw other much faster boats go by, but I don't care. We arrived a few minutes after these boats. Nothing shocking! The return trip was quite difficult. Not by the boat or the staff. The weather conditions were disastrous, and the staff was very available and helpful to the many people sick at sea.

Great fun, we also saw Espalmador, a spectacular island. Breakfast, lunch with paella and snack (hot dogs). Fantastic.

the staff was super pleasant, smiling and kind. Everything went really well and we definitely arrived on time.

I recommend checking the ferry return time. The hours are quite limited.

Everything was very good, we loved it, we will repeat
