San Gwann ferry, Cape Verde

New ferry services in Cape Verde will commence this month. A new route linking Sal, Boa Vista, São Nicolau and São Vicente will operate twice a week. On Sunday and Thursday the ferry will leave Sal and finish in São Vicente after calling at Boa Vista and São Nicolau. On Wednesday and Saturday, the reverse route will operate, starting at São Vicente and ending at Sal. The timetable for this service is given on the CV InterIlhas website.

This is a welcome addition to inter-island transport in Cape Verde. These new ferry services were suggested when the CV InterIlhas website was launched. It is good that they are now coming into operation.
