  • "LA gomera day trip"

    The ship was a very quick and efficient way for traveling to LA gomera for the day. The ship was comfortable and the catering was very good and all included with the oroclass. The only thing that let the ship down was the air conditioner in the hold class lounge was leaking a lot of water and there were some seats that were soaked.

    The boat was on time, clean, staff efficient and friendly. We had drinks from the bar and enjoyed them out on deck as the sun set. A service that couldn’t be faulted - Thankyou.

  • "by ferry to the island where time has a different dimension"

    I was surprised at how fast the shipment was and very well that the luggage is placed separately so as not to block the access routes inside. They also thought of smokers and have a special place for smoking. You can also stay inside where there is air conditioning and outside. I recommend visiting the Canary Islands by ferry.

  • "Seamless process."

    We have done this crossing before. Just take email confirmation to Fred Olsen Express desk. They enter passport numbers into their booking system. No tickets given and they swipe your passport just before boarding. That's it. On the return leg I went to the FO ticket office and they didn't want any ID as we were already booked in. It was so easy. The Benchijigua Express is a great fast ferry and worth the little extra than charged by the competition.

  • "Well worth the effort"

    Many years ago we discovered the attraction of using our allocated two week holiday in the Canaries by first spending a few days on Tenerife (Los Cristianos) then boarding the ferry in the harbour to La Gomera for a week then returning and spending a few more days on Tenerife before flying home. The ferry crossing takes about 45 minutes and is thoroughly pleasant - free wifi and good cafe and shopping facilities on board. We don't find there is a need for a car on Tenerife but we ore book a car which we pick up at the harbour at San Sebastián on La Gomera. Some may feel this us all too much trouble - but do try it. The ferry crossing really couldn't be more straightforward. The cases are put in lockers on a Fred Olsen supplied "train" before you board the ferry and are easy cleated and then transferred to a hire car when you disembark - easy. Cannot speak highly enough if the service from Direct Ferries - cheaper and more convenient than booking direct with the ferry company.
