Information on Payment and Departure Times

It should be noted that payment for the Torres del Paine catamaran ferry service is required on board, in cash in local Chilean pesos, but during high season they often accept other HARD currencies, for example USD and the Euro. However, if ExperienceChile.Org is handling your travel itinerary WE CAN arrange tickets in advance – but these will not guarantee you space on a specific departure, you will STILL NEED to show up early and wait in line.

Departure Time Schedule is Further Below

Scheduling of the Torres del Paine catamaran ferry service is set at specific times, however, as this is a monopoly service, the owners can, at will, change the frequency of these departures to suit the economic reality associated with income derived from each sailing. In other words, if it looks to them like there will not be much demand in a particular day, they may well cancel a sailing.

Naturally, this does not help when it comes to planning travel itineraries, but it can happen, although not often.

Climate and Weather

Another influence on departure times is the state of the weather. If there is considerable wind the service can be suspended.

Types of Catamaran Ferries

Advantages of Catamaran Ferries

catamaranes ferry

Catamaran ferries offer a number of advantages over traditional ferries, making them an attractive option for water transportation.

The most notable of these advantages is their increased stability and capacity.

The hulls, or pontoons, of a catamaran ferry are wider than those of a traditional ferry, allowing them to carry larger loads with greater stability.

This makes catamaran ferries ideal for transporting large groups of people and goods, and they are often used in coastal and cross-water transportation, such as for island hopping or as a commuter ferry.

Catamaran ferries are also faster and more fuel efficient than traditional ferries, allowing them to cover greater distances in less time.

This makes them a great option for travelers looking to explore remote locations, as they are able to access shallow waters that traditional ferries may not be able to reach.

Additionally, the increased stability of catamaran ferries means they provide a smoother ride than traditional ferries, making them more comfortable for passengers.

Finally, catamaran ferries are often more eco-friendly than traditional ferries, as they require less fuel to operate and emit fewer pollutants.

This makes them a great option for environmentally conscious travelers who want to reduce their carbon footprint.

Overall, catamaran ferries offer a number of advantages over traditional ferries, making them an attractive option for water transportation.

They are more stable and can carry larger loads, are faster and more fuel efficient, and provide a smoother ride.

Additionally, they are often more eco-friendly than traditional ferries, making them a great option for travelers looking to reduce their environmental impact.

Disadvantages of Catamaran Ferries

While catamaran ferries offer many advantages, there are also some disadvantages to consider.

For example, while catamaran ferries are generally more stable than traditional monohull ferries, they do not have any lateral stability and can be subject to strong winds and waves, making them less suitable for long-distance journeys.

Additionally, catamaran ferries are more expensive to build and maintain than monohulls, and require regular maintenance to ensure the hulls remain in good condition.

Finally, catamaran ferries may not be able to access some areas due to their shallow draft, which limits their ability to navigate certain waterways.

Where to Find Catamaran Ferries

You can also find catamaran ferries in Europe, Asia, South America, and many other regions of the world.

In addition to traditional ferry services, many private operators also offer charter services on catamaran ferries.

These services can range from private day trips to longer excursions, and they can provide an exciting and unique experience for those looking to explore the open waters.

Private operators may also offer specialized services, such as wildlife tours or dinner cruises.

The Fastest & Biggest Catamaran Ferries

FerryGoGo

The Fastest Ferry

All fast catamaran connections in europe, the largest catamaran ferry, images of the highest-speed catamarans in the world.

Catamaran Ferries are faster than traditional ‘monohull' ferries. These ferries can achieve much higher speeds. In Europe, you have several of these fast catamaran connections that you can take.

Take for instance the ferry on the connection between Hirtshals and Kristiansand:

Fjord FSTR Bron: https://www.fjordline.com/

The Franciso ferry remains the fastest ferry, built by Incat:

HSC Francisco is a High-Speed Catamaran built by Incat in Hobart, Tasmania. Powered by liquefied natural gas, she is currently the fastest passenger ship in service, reaching a speed of 58 knots (107 km/h; 67 mph). The propulsion is by two GE LM2500 water jets. Connecting Buenos Aires with Montevideo .

catamaranes ferry

A ferry connection is considered fast if more than 40 knots can be achieved. Only ferry catamarans make this. Boats that are often high and therefore have less friction with the water.

Catamaran connections in Scandinavia and the Baltic Sea

  • Aarhus – Odden
  • Rønne – Ystad (2 pieces)
  • Gothenburg (Sweden) – Frederikshavn (Denmark)
  • Gran Canaria – Fuerteventura ( Leonora Christina )
  • Hirtshals (Denmark) and Kristiansand (Norway)
  • Viking FSTR – Helsinki to Tallinn (Very fast!)

Bajamar Express

You also have these ferries in the British Isles, including from Stranraer to Belfast and ferries from England to the Channel Islands. Since these often change locations, it is difficult to pin them to one location or connection.

You also recently have more of these High-Speed ​​ferries available around Greece.

HSC-Express

The largest diesel-powered catamaran ferry is the  HSC Express 1 and 2  between Aarhus and Odden (as well as Rønne and Ystad) in Denmark. More information about this catamaran can be found  here on Wikipedia  . The newer variants of this Ferry. For example, the HSC Express 3 is slightly smaller, so it may well be the case that these will remain the fastest and largest catamarans in the world for a very long time.

UPDATE: By the way, the  Express 5  will eventually become the largest.

Sometimes you hear that the Hodor pleasure yacht (  Astilleros Armon  ) is the largest catamaran with 60 meters, but this is incorrect. It is much smaller than the HSC Express at  112.6 meters .

The Bajamar Express is a beauty, love to see more of these catamaran ferries in Europe!

The White Blue ferry is the Iris 6.1 Catamaran Passenger Ferry. I think the project failed:

” The philosophy underpinning the design concept was the need to achieve three important targets. Most importantly, it had to be able to transport passengers in comfort. In order to impose a mimimal environmental impact on ports, estuaries and banks, it had to generate a low wake at all operational speeds. Lastly, it had to meet these standards without negatively influencing the hull form, which was designed to maximise speed and economy.”

The ferry is still active somewhere in Croatia. When you spot it let us know 🙂

There you are, out on the water when a strange craft approaches.  Is it a sailboat? It sure looks like one until it turns to face you.  That’s when you notice this boat doesn’t have just one hull. It has two hulls and it’s called a catamaran.

Catamarans are unique, and highly stable watercraft.  We’ll explore all the ins and outs of sailing the waters in one of these weird, and awesome multi-hulled craft.  Join me as we explore the wild world of sailing catamarans.

A History Of The Catamaran

It is believed that the first people to use a catamaran design were those living in Australasia.

A map showing the region where the catamaran originated.

The succession of boat design in this region was actually very interesting.  The beginning of boats in the area was simple, albeit conventional rafts. These were fashioned from logs strewn together with plant fiber lashings such as those formed using bamboo fiber.  

Catamaran Evolution

An info graphic showing the progression of the evolution of the catamaran.

The conventional raft gave way to a minimal raft.  This design was basically a conventional raft with two cross beams added in the form of logs.  These would be eventually hollowed out to improve buoyancy.

The next step in the evolution of boats in the Australasian region was the double canoe.  This proved to be the first real catamarans.  

After some time, the form evolved further into the asymmetrical double canoe design.  In this design, one canoe was large and the other attached canoe was smaller.

The asymmetrical design quickly evolved into the single-outrigger boat like the one shown in the photo below.

A monohull canoe with an attached exterior outrigger is shown in this file photo.

The final stage of the evolution of the catamaran in the region was to gain a second outrigger.  This in effect created the trimaran with the single central hull and dual outriggers.

Eye Witness Accounts Of Catamarans

In 1697, William Dampier wrote of witnessing a type of seafaring vessel off the coast of Coromandel.  He noted how the locals called the type of boat a catamaran. He also noted that it had multiple hulls (logs) and that they were small vessels that the person operating would have to hang partway into the water, straddling the hull (log).

The name catamaran came from the Tamil.  And yet, it was easily applied by the European visitors to the two hulled sailing vessels that sped across the water in the region.

Although Dampier may have described the catamaran in the 1690s, the type of boat was actually used as early as the 5th century by the Tamil Chola dynasty.  They used boats to move their troops from one island to another. Using this design of boat allowed them to travel heavy, travel quickly and was partially responsible for the conquering of neighboring Burma, Malaysia, and Indonesia.

Building A Boat – Basics Of Catamaran Construction

A boat is usually thought of as being a single-hulled vessel that travels along the surface of the water.  It can have multiple types, shapes, and designs of the hull. However, it is often only thought of as having a single hull.  But, what if it had two hulls? Would that be like taking two separate boats, and making a raft over both of them? In essence, that is exactly what a catamaran is:  two boats made into one.

Advantages Of Multiple Hulls

  • More stability than a monohull
  • Wide supporting base allows for larger sails than monohull craft of the same length
  • Hull does not require the deep-running keel of a standard monohull sailboat
  • Less hull drag in the water than a monohull
  • Less power required to drive a catamaran forward than a monohull boat

Disadvantages Of Multiple Hulls 

  • Due to multiple hulls, construction is more expensive than a monohull design
  • Catamaran speed relies on lightweight materials to make a lightweight craft.  This also drives up the cost of construction.
  • Extra engineering requirements for multi-hull craft also increase the cost of construction.

Conclusion?  Well, it looks to me like everything about catamarans points towards superiority over monohulls in nearly every way.  But, you get what you pay for. I think the same thing likely applies to cars too. For instance, I have a performance car that cost me about 10k more than the equivalent non-sports car within the same class. 

Yet to drive the vehicle, it performs so much better than the normal version of the car, it really speaks volumes to the difference between a common vehicle, and a performance one.

Speaking of performance vehicles, let’s take a look now at the different kinds and uses of a catamaran.

Catamaran Types

Commercial catamarans – ferries.

Catamarans are often used as a ferry to transport people and vehicles across bodies of water as shown in this photo.

One of the most common uses for a catamaran is the commercial use of the vehicle design when it comes to ferries.  This is likely due to the wide, flat deck possibilities of a catamaran versus a monohulled boat. Not only that, but the catamaran is also a much more stable bodied vessel.  This again makes it a superior design for transporting larger land vessels like trucks and so forth. They can easily drive on the ferry without fear of the ferry tipping over.

Some ferries are designed for taking vehicles, like the one you might find in the city of Toronto.  Where it transports cars from the mainland to Toronto Island. Others are designed specifically with the sole purpose of transporting people. I took a look at one such ferry that operates in Germany.  Take a look at the following case study.

Commercial Use Case Study – The Ferry

The FRS Helgoline is a ferry catamaran operating out of Flensburg, Germany, close to the Danish border.

Top-rated boat seats on Amazon

According to the ferry company’s website, the ferry runs using four main engines which are run to a capacity of 12,182 hp combined.  This blasts this ferry at a speed of 35 knots or 65 km/hour. This is equivalent to 40 miles per hour. That’s pretty good considering the size and weight of the ship body this catamaran can carry.

Speaking of capacity, the ship can carry 680 passengers. At 56.4 meters long (185 feet) by 14 meters wide (45.9 feet), that’s a decent passenger capacity. 

Catamaran Passenger Capacity Versus Monohull Boat Passenger Capacity 

The general rule for calculating passenger capacity for a boat is as follows.

Length x Width / 15 = Passenger Capacity

Therefore, the FRS Helgoline should have a calculated capacity calculated as follows.

185 x 45.9 / 15 = 566  

But it actually has a capacity of 680 which is a 20% increase in capacity over a standard monohull.

For comparison, let’s look at a superyacht.  A 48.5m (159 feet) long by 10.7m (35 feet) beam (width of the boat) Palmer Johnson Supersport 48 (valued at about $28.5 million dollars) should have a capacity calculated as follows.

159 x 35 / 15 = 371

In short, 26 feet of difference in length equates to 309 fewer passengers.  It is almost half of the capacity of the catamaran at 26 feet longer length.

Commercial Catamarans – Service Vehicles

In port in Australia, a service catamaran sits docked in this photo.

Although Catamarans are typically used as ferries due to their stability and ability to carry wide loads on their flat decks, there are many different service catamarans out there as well.  From a support vessel to a crew transfer or search and rescue, catamarans are a solid and stable platform to build a ship on.

This is the Ardea which is a 20 meter (65.6 feet) catamaran to be used for crew transport and as a support ship.  This ship was built by the Echo Marine Group and delivered to Western Australia in early 2019. This particular vessel is in the service of the Cape Preston Sino Iron Project.  

Catamarans are used all around the world, for a variety of tasks, not just ferries or support craft.

Commercial Catamarans – Cruise Lines

A large red and white catamaran cruise ship sits idle in the waters in front of a bustling metropolis in this photo.

Now these are the catamarans we all want to be aboard, aren’t they?  Due to the wide stance, these ships can feature massive halls and wide-open interior areas.  These ships are stable, and some would say even more stable and safer than monohull design ships.  

There are many cruise ship catamarans in use today around the world.  Some of the more ‘famous’ catamaran cruises are those which investigate the Galapagos Islands.  There are several high-end, small fleet, cruise lines operating to the Galapagos which utilize catamaran design vessels as their primary ship type. 

These ships can be extremely comfortable and stable and often offer some reprieve to those who may otherwise feel seasick. It won’t stop the feeling, but the more stable the hull, the less the boat rocks around.

Military Catamarans

The USNS Spearhead races forward along the water in this file photo.

Catamarans make excellent military transport vessels.  They are stable and the potential to have a large, flat and wide deck for transporting land craft, troops or acting as a landing pad for vertical take-off aerial craft.  The stability of the two hulls makes the vessel an excellent candidate for military use, and thus it is used for said purpose.

A photo of the rear of the USNS Spearhead - a military catamaran.

As you can clearly see in the image of the USNS Spearhead, the rear of the vessel has a moveable ramp that can be used for loading and unloading land vehicles.  The interior bay of the craft is visible in the image as well, a large area for storage of vehicles, supplies and more. The crane arm on the back of the ship also shows how it is a versatile craft, set up to act as an excellent support craft with a helicopter landing pad and ample storage and freight capacity.

Recreational Catamarans

Siting on a beach, a small catamaran sail is set against the wind swept clouds and blue sky.

Catamaran Personal WatercraftThe wind is in your hair, the warm spray from the hull cutting over the edge of each wave as you skip over the water.  That is life, let me tell you. Personal watercraft have come a long way over the years and the small one, two, three and four-person catamarans have come a long way as well. 

This image shows a homemade catamaran.

Depending on the options, you can get a small one or two-person catamaran for as little as $1500 new.  That might be an inflatable though. There are some very nice, rigid hull designed catamarans for 1-4 people that range from $3500 to $15000.  And these are basically open, personal watercraft like that shown in the image below.

Using a small catamaran can be quite challenging to learn at first.  Sailing is not for the faint of heart. It requires skill, technique, knowledge of the wind and sea, and a bit of hard work.  But it can be fun, rewarding and a great way to catch some sun and fresh air out on the water. It’s a relatively GREEN sport as well.   Given the use of sails over gas-powered motors that is.

‘Sailing Cats’ – Sailing Catamarans – Yacht & Luxury Class

This photo shows a luxury sailing catamaran yacht.

Here’s where we get into the dreamy boats of the rich and famous.  I priced out a small 43’ luxury Leopard 40 sailing catamaran. Even before I added any extras at all, the base price was $399,000 USD.  I imagine if I added a few of the multiple extras available, and some tax, freight and that sort of thing, I’m easily in half a million dollars.  And that’s the smallest base model.

Top-rated boat covers on Amazon

There are all kinds of luxury catamaran shipbuilders across the world.  From Asia to Europe and The Americas, it seems any major boating country has at least one company building luxury catamarans.  It’s weird that you don’t see more of them on the water though, don’t you think?

Being sailing vessels, these luxury cats require some training in sailing before you get behind the wheel.  And considering the price point, I would definitely want to be at least a semi-decent sailor with some good few years experience under my belt before I would comfortable at the helm of a half-million-dollar sailing cat.  It’s all relative I suppose. I imagine a billionaire might bat an eye at the prospect of wrecking a half-million-dollar boat. But to me, and most of you reading this, that’s likely a lot of money.

‘Power Cats’ – Powered Catamarans

A powered catamaran is shown in this file photo.

The powered catamaran is one of my favorite boats.  They have sort of a muscle car appearance with the wide and often tall front end of the boats.  I find it to be reminiscent of a large air intake on the front hood of a rally race car like the Subaru WRX, for instance.  These boats are fast, they are stable and handle very well. Catamarans are often considered the boat of choice for long sea voyages due to their stability.  

A powered catamaran will definitely cost more than a powered monohull boat of the same length.  Why? Well, the powered catamaran has one crucial downside. That is, it needs two engines. One for each of the two hulls.  Otherwise, it’s off balance for propulsion. These two engines or motors have to be in sync with each other or again, the propulsion will be off-balance.  Because they have two motors, they have double the maintenance when it comes to maintaining the propulsion system.

More components also means a greater chance of things breaking down.  In essence, it doubles the chances of the ship having a motor break down. The saving grace is that should one motor break, they have a backup, even if it does mean very unbalanced propulsion.  In contrast, a monohull vessel of the same length may only have half the chance of motor failure due to only having one motor, but if that one motor breaks, then what? Call for help, that’s what.  A cat would have a struggling chance to get itself back to port. A monohull would be dead in the water unless it was carrying spare parts or another motor onboard somewhere.

Catamaran Frequently Asked Questions

What is a catamaran cruise.

catamaranes ferry

A catamaran cruise is simply a cruise on a dual hull design boat.  Often used for river cruises, the catamaran which is used as cruise ships are often considerably smaller than their giant monohulled counterparts.

What is the purpose of a catamaran?

A catamaran is a design for a boat that utilizes two hulls.  Due to the flat, platform-like-potential for the deck of the boat, the catamaran is often purposed with transporting materials, vehicles, and people.  For instance, catamarans are quite often used as ferries.

Is catamaran safe?

Catamaran are very safe water craft.   The design of riding on two hulls separated by a gap in between, in essence is like giving a car a double-wide wheel base.  The wider the stance, the more stable the craft, from side to side anyway. And if the length of the boat is proportional to the width, then it becomes an extremely stable craft.  That is why catamarans are often considered the best to be used for long voyages. Yes, catamaran are safe.

What is the difference between a catamaran and a sailboat?

A traditional sailboat is a deep, monohull vessel that has at least one mast extending high into the air above the deck to hold sails.  A catamaran refers to the design of a dual-hull boat and really has nothing to do with sails. Although, catamaran do make excellent sailing boats as well, they are quite capable of acting as power boats and do not require sails if they have the correct amount of powered motors to propel them.  Sailboats, although also able to be powered if a motor is provided, are traditionally monohull and wind-powered exclusively.

Do catamarans have small interiors?

The size of an interior cabin on a boat is typically proportional to the size of the boat itself.  If a catamaran has above-deck cabins, they will likely be able to be of a larger design than those you would find on deck of a monohull boat.  This is because a catamaran has a much wider footprint than a monohull boat of the same length. This extra width would allow for larger on deck cabins.  

How much does a catamaran cost?

A personal watercraft (1-2 person) inflatable catamaran will run you anywhere from $1500-$12000 USD, depending on the quality and features.  The rigid hull catamarans of the same size start at about $4500 USD.

Top-rated boat lights on Amazon

A small cabin cruiser type of catamaran will typically start at about $60000 for a small base model and the price just goes up and up depending on size and features.

For Instance, a 40’, 3 cabin with 1 washroom cat will cost you about $500,000 USD for the base model.  They are considerably more expensive that a monohull of the same length. However, the trade-off is greater stability and a smoother, more comfortable ride.

Is a catamaran more work to maintain?

Technically yes.  Due to having two hulls and if powered, two motors and likely also water jets, this means you have double the oil changes of a boat that would have a single motor.  Once you get past the basic engine and hull maintenance, a catamaran is not that much more work than a monohull ship of the same length.  

The trouble with catamarans in terms of maintenance, is that once they reach a certain length, the width becomes more than a standard lane on the road.  That being said, if you ever need to transport the boat via land, it can be quite the challenge. Especially if you need to pay to have a police escort for an extra-wide trailer.  And special licensing might be involved as well.

What is the difference between a catamaran and a trimaran?

A trimaran is shown in this photo.

A catamaran is a dual hull boat.  In other words, it has two hulls. A trimaran has three hulls.  

Is a catamaran considered a yacht?

According to Oxford dictionary, a yacht is a medium-sized sailboat equipped for cruising or racing.  A catamaran, on the other hand, is a boat with two hulls. Therefore, a catamaran can most certainly also be a yacht.  And likewise, if a yacht has two hulls, then it is a catamaran as well.

Can you get seasick on a catamaran?

Seasickness occurs when a person feels nauseous from the swaying motion of a rocking ship.  These feelings may be lessened on a catamaran, due to their extra stability. However, a catamaran may be slightly more stable than a monohull of the same length, but it is still a boat.  And it will still make someone who experiences seasickness continue to feel the ill effects.

Are catamarans more stable in rough seas?

Catamarans are known to be more stable than monohull ships of the same length.  This is why catamarans are often the ship type of choice for long sea voyages due to their stability.

Why do catamarans capsize?

Catamarans are not known for capsizing.  The larger vessels that is anyway. But, it does happen from time to time.  Catamarans are known for their stability, so typically if a capsize event should occur, it is typical for them to be extreme circumstances.  

Top-rated canoe accessories on Amazon

Personal watercraft catamarans are a different story though.  These are in fact known for tipping over. Not because they are less stable than their monohull counterparts of the same length.  But instead, because they are able to go considerably faster than monohull personal watercraft of the same length (not including powered craft though).  This is due to the sailing cats being able to have a larger sail than a small monohull sailboat of the same length.

Due to the extra sail, they are able to travel faster than monohull sailboats of the same length.  This allows them to whip around on the water and at higher speeds, whipping your cat about quick can easily send it over sideways. Extra speed means fast turns carry momentum in the direction of travel and that extra speed equates to tipping over if turned too fast.  To sum up, they capsize due to user error or extreme events.

Which is safer, a catamaran or a monohull?

Due to the extra stability of having a wider footprint than a monohull, a catamaran of the same length is the safer vessel.

Are catamarans safer than sailboats?

The same rule applies to stability versus the length of the hull.  A cat will always be the more stable length for length. However, due to their ability to go much faster than a monohull sailboat, this kind of cancels out some of the added safety due to stability.  With that in mind, they may just be about the same but there is one generalization we can make when comparing the safety of catamarans vs sailboats: At the same speed, and of equal length, sailing or power catamaran will be safer than a monohull sailboat.

How fast can catamarans go?

The speed a catamaran can go is entirely dependent upon the hull design, weight of the vessel, the strength of propulsion (be it wind or powered) and so on.  The general rule is that in terms of sailing cats vs monohull sailboats, a cat of equal length can typically go faster than a sailboat.  

In terms of powered cats vs powerboats, a powered catamaran will typically require less energy to move forward than a monohull of the same sort of hull design (but monohull of course) and thus a cat should, in theory, be able to go faster than a monohull when both are using propulsion that is equal in power.

What are the differences between trimarans and catamarans?

The most essential difference between trimarans and catamarans is in their naval design and infrastructures .

A catamaran , to begin with, benefits from the general structure of a long conventional ferry, which helps the vessel travel faster. Its deck, however, is balanced on 2 hulls instead of 1, making the vessel more comfortable and easier to navigate.

On the other hand, trimarans , also known as “multihulls”, include 3 hulls , upgrading the experience of traveling by ferry in every way imaginable!

Benefits of traveling by trimaran

So, what does a trimaran bring to the table other than its fantastic design that resembles a spaceship? The 3 hulls make the trimarans of Fred. Olsen Express more versatile and stable , even in rough conditions. Their comfort is combined with enhanced speed , allowing you to reach your destination by ferry easily and conveniently. Traveling in the Canaries is nothing but smooth sailing!

In longer trips, with stronger winds and waves, the trimaran reigns supreme. It’s also an ideal solution if you wish to avoid seasickness , as the hulls provide better and more balanced navigation . Catamarans, on the other hand, are appropriate for shorter trips, with calm waters and good weather conditions.

10 Best Catamaran Trips & Charters In Puerto Rico (2024)

  • Catamaran Trips & Charters

One of the best ways to explore Puerto Rico is by catamaran.

Whether you’re taking a trip to the east coast or the west coast, these catamarans have something special planned for their guests. 

I am a Puerto Rico local and when I’m not writing or working, you can find me sailing the coastline.

In this article, we will cover the 10 best catamaran charters & trips in Puerto Rico:

1. Culebra Gateway Day Trip — East Island Excursions

East Island Excursions offers tours to Culebra , Vieques, and the Virgin Islands on a powerful and fast catamaran.

image of East Island Excursions' Catamaran

Enjoy stops at snorkeling locations and popular beaches. The excursion includes snacks, lunch, and refreshments. 

The tour departs from Marina Puerto del Rey in Fajardo.

If you’re staying outside of Fajardo you can arrange transportation for a fee per person.

Here is a video of the Culebra Gateway Day Trip with East Island Excursions:

Book this trip by visiting the East Island Excursions website .

Read more about the islands you can explore on this trip in our articles about Culebra and Vieques .

2. Afternoon Sail and Sunset — Salty Dog Catamaran

image of Salty Dog Catamaran

Snorkeling, snack variety, and rum cocktails are included.

The excursion departs from Villa Marina in Fajardo. Transportation to Fajardo has to be arranged separately.

Book this trip by visiting the Salty Dog Catamaran website.

Learn more about the area in our article Fajardo – All You Need To Know.

3. Bareboat Catamaran Charter — Sail Caribe Yacht Charters

Sail Caribe offers catamaran charters to Vieques, Culebra, Cayo Icacos, Palomino Island, and Culebrita.

image of Sail Caribe Yacht Charters' Catamaran

The difference they offer is a charter where you can sail, and sleep aboard without a captain and crew.  

The service is called “bareboat” and can be very attractive if you’re an experienced sailor.

Charters depart from the Marina Puerto de Rey in Fajardo. Charters are sold by the week. Ground transportation is not included.

Check out the Caribbean Yacht Charter in the following video:

Book this trip by visiting the Sail Caribe website.

Vieques is home to the world’s brightest bioluminescent bay , why not make it your destination?

Learn more about it in our article Mosquito Bay – All You Need To Know.

4. Catamaran Day Trip (Icacos Island) — Castillo Tours

Castillo Tours operates its own boats, vehicles, and staff. They specialize in corporate groups.

image of Castillo Tours' Catamaran

The tour includes snorkel equipment, beach toys, boxed lunch, and refreshments. 

The differentiating factor is they will provide beach toys to play volleyball, football, or beach paddles .

The trip departs from Villa Marina in Fajardo. You can arrange transportation for an additional charge.

Below is a video of a Catamaran Day Trip with Castillo Tours:

Book this trip by visiting the Castillo Tours website.

5. Beauty of Fajardo Day Sail — Catamaran Spread Eagle

The Catamaran Spread Eagle has been providing tours from Fajardo for decades.

image of Catamaran Spread Eagle's Catamaran

The difference factor with Spread Eagle is that they have a larger variety of lunch options.

They also provide you with a brand-new snorkel included in the tour. This is a nice touch, as opposed to a used one.

The Spread Eagle catamarans depart from Villa Marina in Fajardo.  

The tour is 5 hours, and if you’re departing from the San Juan area you should leave 2 hours earlier. This charter company does not offer transportation with the tour. 

Book this trip by visiting the Catamaran Spread Eagle website.

image showing Morning Snorkel Sail with Katarina Catamaran

The boat is a 32-foot catamaran that can accommodate 17 guests. They include rum punch, lunch, refreshments, and snorkeling.

The Katarina Catamaran is moored in Rincon. You will need to board a small watercraft from the Balneario of Rincon, which transports you to the bigger boat.

The prices range from $85 per person to $250 or more. If you’re budgeting for this activity, add the price of transportation. Transportation can range from $30 to $50+ per person.

What is the best catamaran trip in Puerto Rico?

I liked Sandy Bottoms because they are the only company which offers to teach you how to sail.

We had a group of 8 and the crew was fantastic! We did not experience anything but excellent service. The crew was very engaged and kept the trip fun, specific instructions were given regarding lunch and times of departure. Would definitely do again.

The crew was so friendly and welcoming, the food was outstanding, the drinks were even better and they didn’t stop serving! We had a child (7 years old) who had never been snorkeling and the crew did great having what he needed to learn. Will absolutely be back to enjoy! Keep up the amazing work!

Went with a big wedding crowd. My 7 and 2yr olds LOVED the trip!! It was awesome. The crew was excellent (im a sailor in MA). Professional, courteous to everyone, great service and funny as heck. It was a very nice trip my kids and us will never forget! Thank you guys! Will see you again this winter!

Extremely fun, absolutely beautiful catamaran trip with lively helpful crew! Lunch was perfect, music was as well, snorkeling was amazing and all equipment was above average. The island of Icacos is breathtaking.

Split ferry port

Split is the second-largest city in Croatia and the biggest city on the Adriatic coast considered the capital of the region Dalmatia. The ferry terminal in Split is the main passenger port in the whole of Croatia so it’s well connected to many Croatian islands and even Italy.

Besides ferries, there are many catamaran lines that depart from Split towards the islands. The ferry terminal in Split is located only minutes away from the exciting historic city centre where you can enjoy visiting the sights in the old Diocletian’s palace. It is also close to some of the famous beaches. 

The main bus and train stations are literally across the street from the ferry terminal which makes it perfectly connected with other European and Croatian towns.

Getting to the Split ferry port

If you’re staying in Split and if you want to reach the islands of Brač , Šolta , Hvar , Korčula , Vis and so on, here is how you get to the ferry terminal from some popular parts of the town.

If you’re staying in the old part of the town, the only way to reach the ferry terminal is to walk there (around 10-15 minutes) since the cars are not allowed in the Diocletian’s palace.

If you’re staying in Veli Varoš, it’s pretty much the same thing. There is a main promenade by the sea called Riva between Varoš and the ferry terminal and there are also no cars allowed there. So you’ll have to walk (20-25 minutes) or you can take a taxi in the end of the promenade. It might cost you around 60-70 kn (8-9 euros) since it has to go all the way around the centre to reach the ferry terminal.

If you’re staying on Bačvice, the ferry terminal is really close. If you’re with luggage, the easiest way is to take a taxi that will take you to the ferry terminal (it won’t cost you a lot since it’s not a big distance).

Feel free to find other things to do in Croatia , while you’re at it.

Split terminal building

If you’re staying on Meje, you can also take a taxi in front of you apartment/hotel directly to the ferry terminal, w hich might be a good idea especially if you’re with luggage. You can also take buses number 12 or 21 (depending where on Meje you are staying) that will take you up to the bus stop in the end of the promenade by the sea. From there, you can take a taxi to the ferry terminal (it has to go around a little bit, since there are no cars allowed on the promenade) or you can walk there (15 minutes).

The ticket for the local buses is around 11 kn = 1.5 euros bought on the bus.

If you’re staying in Omiš, Podstrana or Stobreč, the bus number 60 will take you to the green market, minutes away from the ferry terminal . The ticket to Omiš costs around 20 kn = 2.5 euros and a little bit less for Podstrana and Stobreč.

If you are staying in Trogir, the best way is to take a direct bus to the main bus station in Split (across the street from the ferry terminal). The ticket is around 20-30 kn ( 3-4 euros).

You can also take a bus number 37 that passes through little villages along the coast (Kaštela). The bus stops little bit outside of the centre on the bus station SUKOIŠAN (not the main bus station!), so from there it’s best to jump on the bus number 60 and get out at the green market.

All the buses run from early morning to late evening and there are pretty much frequent. Please note, that tickets are a little bit less expensive if bought on the kiosk.

If you’re arriving from Trogir, Omiš, Podstrana, Stobreč, etc. you can also organise a private transfer.

Split airport to the ferry terminal

The airport of Split is around 25 km away from the Split ferry terminal. Once you land, you can take a pre-booked transfer (which will cost you around 32 euros), take a taxi (that will take you directly to the ferry terminal and it will cost you around 45 euros) and there are also shuttle buses running from the airport towards Split. The direct bus stops at the main bus station that is across the street from the ferry terminal. The one-way ticket is around 35 kn = 5 euros.

NEW: Now it is also possible (Provided there is no COVID) to take a fast ferry from the airport to Split centre, which is an amazing way of arriving in Split, timetable from Airport to Split and timetable from Split to the Airport .

There is also a bus number 37 that passes through little villages along the coast (Kaštela). The bus stops a little bit outside of the centre on the bus station SUKOIŠAN (not the main bus station!), so from there it’s best to jump on bus number 60 and get out at the greenmarket (minutes away from the ferry terminal). T he ticket for bus number 37 is around 27 kn = a little less than 4 euros.

However, if you wish to reach the ferry terminal, this bus might not be suitable, so we highly advise you to take the direct shuttle bus which will take you to the main bus station across the ferry terminal.

From cities in Croatia to Split ferry terminal

Split is very well connected with most Croatian and some European destinations by regular or seasonal bus lines. As mentioned above, the main bus station in Split is located literally across the street from the ferry terminal.

To see the exact location, please click on this link here :

You might also want to choose to travel by car. As soon as you enter from Split from either north or south, taking the highway or the coastal road, you will see the sign for the centre and the ferry terminal. All you have to do is follow it and it will get you directly to the ferry terminal.

Split ferry port facilities

Like already mentioned, it’s one of the biggest Croatian ports, located almost in the town centre and the main promenade (Riva), so it’s obvious that you can find all kinds of facilities there or nearby. On the ferry terminal itself you can find a few tickets offices, a post office, a few ATM-s, all kinds of shops, stands with souvenirs and stuff for the beach, bars, restaurants , fast-foods etc. If you need more, you can always walk to the city centre where you’ll find everything you might need for your holiday.
