The ‘Volcan de Tijarafe’ made its last trip today to Portimão, taking 344 people on board. The ship of Naviera Armas, which thus completes a cycle of 12 trips, and is run by Porto Santo Line says goodbye to the line.
The Ferry will return to Funchal Wednesday at 11am and will leave at 17.30 to the Canaries to the sound of horns and whistles. Not to return to Madeira till Summer 2019.
A protest is organised for the departure on Wednesday, highlighting how and why we need a ferry all year round not just for the 12 weeks of summer.
