Mar de Ons Customer Reviews

  • "A truly can’t miss experience "

    We were expecting cold rainy weather on our one day at Islas Cies, but the clouds parted and the sun came out just as our ferry arrived! The atmosphere, the hiking and the general clean environment make the island truly special. Mar de Ons was great throughout and helped me translate to English many times. The crew was friendly and efficient - what more can you ask for?

  • "Ferry ticket to Cies via Direct Ferries"

    Mar de Ons is quite good but I would never book again via Direct Ferries. I made my booking on Thursday for the following Tuesday. Direct Ferries' reply was to come to me within the next 48 hours. It took them 72 hours saying that my preferred option was fully booked already. They offered me an alternative but then it took them ages again to get back. In the meantime I spoke with Mar de Ons directly because I was worried there is only a limited number of tickets to Cies available every day. Surprise surprise. It took them 1 minute to make the booking for me. Even the original times which Direct Ferry said was fully booked. Bottom line is: I lost £23 because Direct Ferries is so slow. Never again. I want my money back.

  • "Brilliant Experience"

    We booked to use this ferry to take us from Vigo to the Cies Islands. We actually missed our 11am ferry mostly due to poor signing in the town of Vigo. The parking allocated to us was in a shopping centre car park which was not all that clearly explained. However, once we got there (late) we were dealt with by a very understanding member of staff who immediately booked us on the 12 o'clock ferry. The ferry was spacious and clean, catering was also available on the crossing. The Islands were great but appeared to only have one place to buy and eat food and drink. Because of that it got very busy with quite long waiting times. The beaches themselves are all nice but take time to walk around before flopping on the nearest one. The sail back was very pleasant and ended a beautiful day.

  • "Simply the best"

    We took this ferry from Vigo to Cies Islands whilst on a short visit to the area. I didn't find the signs to the departure point very good and in fact got lost in Vigo and also couldn't find the parking site. After arriving late the staff couldn't have been more helpful and we were on board quickly. The trip was good and the boat was clean with plenty of seating and always felt safe. Would reccommend using Mar de Ons .
