I just noticed that there is a ferry from mainland spain to Tenerife. I already knew of the ferry to Iceland.

My question is if there are ferries that travel longer distances than these two?

Cadiz–La Palma is slightly longer than Portimao–Tenerife. Can there be intermediate stops? – gerrit Jul 19 '12 at 12:22
Yes intermediate stops are accepted. The route to Iceland stops on the farroerislands – user141 Jul 19 '12 at 12:26
How often should it go to be considered a ferry? The 2219 km I found is just three times a year, so maybe it doesn't really count. Bergen–Kirkenes does, but it does a much longer distance than driving would, and is closer to a cruise-ship than to a ferry in practice. – gerrit Jul 19 '12 at 12:45

Some crossings that are longer than 1000 km, as the crow flies:
