The Greenland tourist board says No. There are no ferry connections between Greenland and Iceland, Denmark or Canada. However, more and more cruise shipping companies are choosing to include Greenland on their itineraries, whereby it is possible to begin the voyage from Iceland or go onboard at, for example, Kangerlussuaq. Greenland being an island, I ...

It's obviously impossible to prove a negative, but given that AFerry do not currently list any Egyptian ports AND The Man In Seat61 says "There are currently no ferries to Egypt" I would say that at the time of writing, the answer is NO.

One by one: Yes, Indonesian ferries are that bad. Overcrowding is rife, safety precautions are often non-existent, and the open sea can often be rough. As a simple example, Jakarta Globe's category "Indonesia boat accident" has at least 7 separate sinkings that killed people for 2014 alone, and see the links in this answer for some stories of a typical ...

The ferries to Albania, be it to Durazzo or Vlorë, depart Italy from either Ancona, Bari or Brindisi (ordered by distance from longest to shortest): Mappa traghetti, Cemar, Fair Use It is safe to assume that the duration of the journey will depend on the distance between the two cities. Searching on Direct Ferries for a return journey in September 2015 ...

According to Visit Greenland, at the time of writing there are no ferries to Greenland from either Canada nor Iceland nor Denmark. Indeed Greenland doesn't seem to be an appealing market for inter-country ferries. The linked site nevertheless suggests hopping on a cruise that includes Greenland on its list of destinations, as these are becoming more and more ...

I live in Singapore, and have taken the ferry to Bintan, which is a very similar service to the one that goes to Batam. I plan to take the Batam one as well. Let me first clear up the confusion you have acquired by reading that page on Travelfish.org. They mention that the ferry to Indonesia takes "a couple of days" and "is no cheaper than flying." They ...

The overall cost really depends on whether you want to bring a vehicle or not. It is much more expensive to bring a vehicle. If you want to bring a vehicle, then your only reasonable option is the ferry. There are two ferry services: Interislander Bluebridge If you do not want to bring a vehicle, the cheapest way is probably to fly (although the ferry ...

I think it is fairly certain that no such ferries exist. (Confirmed at turkeytravelplanner.com.) Until just recently (10-15 year?) there were no interaction at all between Greece and Turkey. What you can do is to get a ferry from Çeşme (just outside of Izmir) to Chios and from there get on a night ferry to Athens or Thessaloniki. I also found a schematic ...

No, advance booking is not required, you can generally walk up and buy tickets. This applies to both the slow ferries and the hydrofoils on the primary routes (Busan-Fukuoka, Busan-Shimonoseki). Of course, this assumes there is availability on the ferries, but outside absolute peak travel seasons (Golden Week etc) this is unlikely to be a problem, ...

Background: I'm reading "The Lunatic Express" at present, which tries to open travellers' eyes to the fact that these 'terrifying' roads, buses and ferries are part of thousands of peoples' daily commutes. Yes, they're probably more dangerous than your car ride this morning at home, but people take them every day without concern. In the book, Carl Hoffman ...

To my knowledge, there has never been any Ebola patient in Morocco, ever. Royal Air Maroc serves many destinations in Africa, including Conakry from its hub in Casablanca so it stands to reason that, along with Paris and Brussels, it is slightly more exposed than any random place on earth but at this point this risk is vanishingly small and nothing to worry ...

May be it's too late, but here is the result of my research. I haven't found the price for the line Navbul mentioned by the op, but there is another company that connects Varna (Bulgaria) and Batumi/Poti (Georgia) ports: UKRFerry The price for this route is from 120 USD per person (depending on the accomodation chosen) and 350 USD per car.

in kanyakumari, if you want to see the normal places like Vivekananda memorial etc, ferry services are available from morning 8 to evening 5 but depends on low tide/high tide and timing changes. For your personal seeing in the seas, there are very few options there and you need to negotiate everything else from timings to fare etc generally. Last time, I ...

Adding to @AakashM's answer, there seems to be no active passenger ferry from Europe to Egypt, but according to ferry.co.uk: From Europe – There is now a brand new ferry from Venice to Alexandria. Although schedules are yet to be published. the jouney[sic] should take approximately three days and will be the only Europe to Egypt ferry in operation. ...

It seems like the route you found is the only one that is covered with the Stockholm Card. This Stockholm Card folder (in Swedish) says that it includes unlimited travel with SL, but Obs! Djurgårdsfärjan är inte en del av SL. (Note! The Djurgården-ferry is not a part of SL.) which I believe is the ferry you found from Slussen in Gamla Stan. You ...

If you want to do it via public transport/ferries, you can bus to Tsawwassen, ferry to Swartz Bay, bus to downtown Victoria (~1hr), walk to the Clipper ferry terminal (10 mins) and take that to downtown Seattle. The clipper is a fast, passenger only, ferry.

For reference, Tripadvisor has a review of it from earlier this year (actually several). It appears there are two options for boating : row boat for an hour (160 rupees per person), or motor boat ride for 40 minutes for 1100 rupees total. The motorboat can sit at least 6, so if you have a group this would work out quite reasonably. Further reviews ...

I don't have a complete answer, but I think you can actually get pretty far by ferry alone. There's a ferry between Puerto Princesa and Iloilo City. You can get there by taking the ferry from Balabac to Bataraza and driving the rest (although there should also be a ferry between Bataraza and Puerto Princesa). Although I don't know any ferries to Balabac, ...

Hellenic Seaways are using flying dolphins that's why tickets are expensive. I could not find any route with a "traditional" ferry from Piraeus to Hydra. Your only alternative would be a coach Athens to Galatas (return) costs 25 Euros (175 kilometers - 2 hours and 30 minutes). Galatas to Metochi is 30 minutes away (not sure how you'd get there) and then ...

At least on this particular route, facilities - or lack of them for foot-passengers - might be part of the issue. If you check out the Dublin Port area on Google or Bing maps, you'll notice that of the three ferry terminals - Irish Ferries (T1), Stena (T2) and P&O (T3), the only one with passenger facilities right alongside the dock area (with a bridge ...

The chance of the ferry being too full for walk on passengers is fairly low. They can get sold out for vehicles, but bicycles are not effected by that since they are stored along the sides, not in vehicle spaces. If you are buying your ticket that morning I would arrive at least an hour ahead in case there are lots of folks checking in or go the day before ...

When reading the FAQ and different parts of the website, the provided information is quite confusing, it might be possible to add passengers for free, depending on your fare type. For one, they mention that any change for the Dover-Dunkirk route should happen on the phone and that there will be a cost of 10GBP/15EUR plus the difference between the former ...

I have taken the ferry to Batam before, and they operated really well. It was clean, on time, spacious. Many Singaporeans (who are very safety-conscious) take this mode of transportation.

Water Taxis are Late There are talks about a water taxi service currently being set up. The reference I found talks about it being supposed to start in 2012, but being delayed to the end of 2014. To date, this is still a work in progress. The head of state-backed transportation firm Mowasalat has said a new QR30 million (US$8.24 million) water transit ...

You are out of luck and would have to take a flight instead. There's two ferry companies in the Azores but only one, Atlânticoline, services Sao Miguel and it's well documented that it only does so between May and September. I also checked their website for the January schedule and consistent with the other reports it only showed a shuttle link between ...
