With four different ports available to sail to across these islands, Tenerife, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura, and Gran Canaria, travelling between the islands has never been easier with ferry travel. With up to 997 ferries running per week across 50 different routes, and with 7 different operators offering ferries on these routes, book now with Direct Ferries, to find the best ferry at the best price for you.

Canary Islands sailing durations and frequency may vary from season to season, and from month to month, so we’d advise doing a live check to get the most up to date information.

Canary Islands Ferry Schedule

The ferry schedule for the ferries that run to the Canary Islands can be impacted by many different factors, including seasonal changes, ferry routes, ferry operators, and other such changes, which makes it impossible for there to be one single ferry timetable. Indeed, for ferries to the Canary Islands, there can be up to 997 ferries running per week, with a large amount of these ferries coming from within the Canary Islands themselves, and with 7 different operators providing ferries to the Canary Islands, there is no shortage of choice. However, here at Direct Ferries, we will help you to find the best ferry at the best price for you, so be sure to book now.

How long does the Ferry to the Canary Islands take?

Ferry sail times for ferries to the Canary Islands can vary from anywhere between 15 minutes, to 3 hours, to 31 hours and 30 minutes, to 64 hours, so these varying sail times means that there is not one specific ferry duration. The sail times vary due to a number of factors, such as ferry route, ferry operator, and external factors such as weather conditions at the time of sail, so be sure to check before you book what your expected sail time will be.

Canary Islands Prices

How much the ferry to the Canary Islands will cost is defined by many different aspects, such as what time of year you are travelling, which route you are taking, which operator you are travelling with, and how you are travelling and so on, so there is not one single ferry fare. Instead, we recommend checking out our useful fare finder tool, to find the best ferry at the best price for you, and be sure to sign up to our email newsletter, to be the first to hear about our latest deals and offers.

Canary Islands reviews

  • "Hassle-free, on-time and quick"

    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.
