Boat and Ferry Travel


Boat and Ferry Travel

Many short-cruise lines along the coast give you a chance to get a view of the Costa Brava from the sea. Visit the port areas in the main towns and you will quickly spot several tourist cruise lines. Plan on spending around €18–€25, depending on the length of the cruise. The glass-keeled Nautilus boats for observation of the Islas Medes underwater park cost €18 and run daily between May and September and weekends only between October and March.

The shortest ferry connections to the Balearic Islands (100 km to Ibiza) originate in Dénia. Balearia sails to Ibiza, Formentera, and Mallorca; Iscomar sails to Ibiza and then to Palma de Mallorca.
