The ferries

  • Express 1

    Express 1 represents a whole new generation of fast ferries in terms of space and comfort. It is easy to board and disembark the super ferry’s large-scale car deck, which is about the size of half a football field.

    On board, you can enjoy a comfortable break, try the delicious dishes in the restaurant and bistro, or enjoy your Espresso House favourite at the coffee shop.

    The fast ferry is built on two floors with plenty of space everywhere. For children, there is a playroom, and there is also a baby room on board.
