Valencia – How to get to Valencia by Ferry

If you are on the Balearic Islands of Majorca or Ibiza, Transmediterránea ferries run services to Valencia throughout the week in the high spring and summer seasons; the journey takes six hours from Majorca and three hours from Ibiza. The Transmediterránea office is
located at Estació Marítim at Valencia port and bus numbers 4 and 19 run to and from here to Plaza del Ayuntamiento in the city. This is very organised transport which many local from the islands rely on. The ferries carry vehicles and provide accommodation onboard.

Prices and Timetables fluctuate greatly with seasons. See the websites below for todays rates and times. There is not anyone who is consistently a better deal – they all try to beat each other with various promotions. if you are with a vehicle, it will be much cheaper
to go from Denia. Do not fall for the offer of a faster ferry – it will be a miniscule difference, unless it is a direct one with no stops (a fast ferry gets close to a slow ferry when it has to enter various ports on the way).

There are three carriers in Valencia (listed below). They all have an online booking facility in English, an English-speaking helpline and a ticket office in the Port if you prefer it the old-fashioned way. However, the distances in the Port are huge and , bar Transmediterranea,
unless you are in a vehicle or a taxi, it is unrealistic and ugly. Besides, it is so unusual not use the booking facility (which have been tuned to a good level) that the ferries pretty much assume you will book online or by phone.
