    Starting July 2nd (12 trips panned for 2018) the Volcan de Tijarafe will be making a triangular ferry route linking Portimao (Algarve), Funchal (Maderia) and Tenerrife (Canary Islands) - taking approx 23 hours.

    A couple more destinations for us to explore.

    The service is operated by navieraarmes.com.
    In the recent past we have looked at the ferry costs to the Canary Isles (they have a big 40 series event) and the costs were over 1000 euros but having done a similar exercise with these people it is just under 800 euros although we couldn't find reference to this new service.
    A 20+% saving is worth having.
    We'll keep an eye on it for when the 40 club announce their dates.

    Regards,
    Rodger
