It has been confirmed that the ferry service between Portimão and Funchal will resume on 8 July 2019. Like last year, the company will operate a weekly service until the end of September aboard the Volcan de Tijarafe.
The good news is that ticket prices will remain the same and will be on sale from next week from ENM offices and travel agents around Madeira and Porto Santo.
Similar to last year the ferry leaves Tenerife at 8.15 pm on Sunday evening and arrives in Madeira on Monday morning at 8.15 am. At 10.30 am it leaves Madeira for Portimão, reaching its destination at 9.30 am on Tuesday morning. Departing three hours, the ship returns to Madeira arriving at 12.30 pm on Wednesday. It then departs for Las Palmas at 18.00 the same evening.
