Ferry to the Cies Islands

The excursion very well, good weather and the exceptional guide. There is a lack of information about the different routes on the island ... they explain on arrival very quickly and you must decide with almost no information about each of them. (time, difficulty, possibility of starting and returning on your own, etc)

Return Ferry from Vigo and the Cíes Islands

At your selected time, make your way to the port in Vigo to board the ferry that will take you to the Cíes Islands, one of the most incredible natural parks in Spain. The trip will take you just 40 minutes.

Once you have disembarked, you will be free to explore the island's hills and beaches, or simply relax and soak up the sun. You decide!

This paradise is a must-see on any trip to Galicia. Formed by three islands, the archipelago has hiking trails, a wealth of natural attractions and some of the most breathtakingly beautiful bays in Europe. You'll never want to leave!

Cíes Islands to Vigo Ferry Times

The return ferries from the Cíes Islands to Vigo vary depending on the time of year.

Return on a different day

If you would like to return on a different day, you should indicate so in the comments section when making your reservation. To camp on the islands, you must obtain the relevant permit from the Xunta de Galicia, as we only arrange authorisations of tickets with same day returns.

Guided Tours in Low Season

Between the months of October and December, the ticket to the Cies islands includes a visit with an official guide. This is because it is prohibited to visit the islands in low season without a guide. This means that the guide will accompany you in the boat from Vigo, and once you dock in Cies, will indicate the main routes. The guide will explain the main anecdotes about the island, and its wildlife, before setting you on your way.
