  • "Excellent help for Disabled"

    We experienced a trouble free crossing in both directions in comfortable conditions. The help of the crew on the return journey was exceptional taking care of my husband who had broken his leg and had to come on board on a wheel chair. Excellent care and attention.

  • "Perfect"

    We really liked the boat and the trip also. We're not young, I really felt good on the helpfulness of staff. Would highlight the service from Las Palmas to Agaete free bus took us to the boarding place. It is a pity that those who are not familiar with the local conditions, not to call the attention of: do no need to bring up the heavy packages in the passenger compartment can be placed in a locked compartment when boarding, which can be removed immediately, as he gets out of the way. But the staff also helped in the carry too. We can only recommend everyone who requires a comfortable, reliable, fast connections between the islands. Thank you.

  • "Overtocht Santa Cruz naar Agaete"

    De reis aan boord was geweldig. Het klantvriendelijkheid personeel zorgde goed voor ons etc ... Maar we hadden één groot probleem: wij konden de vertrekplaats in santa cruz niet vinden. Het heeft ongeveer 40 minuten geduurd voordat wij daar achterkwam. Negatief puntje is dat er totaal geen wegbewijzering is in de vertrekhaven. Dit kan zeker worden verbeterd. Gelukkig op tijd de boot gehaald, alwas het op het nippertje.

  • "Average travel experience"

    Very little information about how to get to the port so i got lost. The port is far from Las Palmas and i wanted to travel on the first ferry of the morning but wasn't possible. Ship itself was ok.

  • "May visit to La Gomera"

    the trip was easy to book online, punctual, efficient, quick and the boarding and unloading were well managed. The crew were courteous, helpful well presented, and professional. The buffet service was good, and we saw one of the buffet staff help passengers when they were having difficulty carrying their tray The ship was well maintained and clean but some of the soft furnishings (seat cushions) appeared to be worn and frayed and the hand drier in one of the toilets was not working

  • "A good crossing"

    Everything went smoothly, the ferry was on time, the crossing was quick and confortable. The catering was reasonably priced. The only problem is that the staff organising the parking of the cars is Spanish speaking only. It's sometimes difficult to understand what they say. There are no outer decks, it's a shame, because we would have liked to enjoy the view.

  • "Vacaciones en Fuerteventura y Lanzarote (18-25.4.14)"

    Estoy feliz que visité la puerta de Las Palmas una semana antes, porque es posible que no hubiera podido encontrar la punta de salida de Fred Olsen en hora el dia 18. Soy peaton, y tenia que caminar 20 minutos desde la estación de guaguas de Santa Catalina. Una sugerencia: los carteles de Fred Olsen en las oficinas deberian ser más grandes, para que se puedan ver más facilmente de lejos. El viaje mismo (en ambas direcciónes) me encantó. Me parecia que el catamarán era de buena calidad y velocidad.
