Ferries

 

Ferries between the Islands of Cape Verde (National ferries)

Only some of the ferries between the islands have a regular schedule. For island connections that are not listed below, travellers should ask for information on site. If a schedule is announced, be prepared for delays that could last from hours to days.

Ferries are especially suited for visiting the islands have no functioning airport (Santo Antao and Brava).

For the islands have a functioning airport, we recommend the option with the aircraft - available on our page for Cape Verde domestic flights.
