Between the Canary Islands, there are some ferryboat connections with different lines including a ferry between La Palma and Tenerife. After landing at the airport Tenerife South, you have the possibility to continue the journey to La Palma on a ferry boat equipped for persons and cars. If you travel without a car, the best choice for the transfer from the airport Tenerife South to the Los Cristianos harbour is by taxi (about 20 minutes, ca. 20 €).
The ticket for the ferry to La Palma can be purchased – unless not already booked in a travel agency – in the Los Cristianos harbour itself. From there, you continue your journey by ferry boat on Fred.Olsen lines to Santa Cruz de la Palma. The journey on the fully air-conditioned, comfortable ferryboat with shops, board-service and sufficient space for cars, provided by Fred.Olsen, lasts for 2 hours. The costs for a trip by such a ferry to La Palma amount per person to a bit more than 40€.
Departure time 8 p.m. – from the Los Cristianos harbour / Tenerife to Sta. Cruz de la La Palma.
Departure time 6.30 a.m. – to Santa Cruz de La Palma to the Los Cristianos harbour /Tenerife.
Who loves to travel by sea or whose children regard a some hours lasting “boat trip” already as part of the holidays and thus likes to embark on a longer ferry trip between the Canary Islands to La Palma – with his or her family and car –, or whoever wants to visit in their holidays serveral Canary Islands, should really inquire at an online company for ferry connections between the Canary Islands about ferries from Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote to La Palma. Or inform yourself directly at the ferry line Naviera Armas (under the navigational point “Horario” you can get all the ferry connections between the Canary Islands) or at the ferry line Trasmediterranea.
