Below is the Ferry Schedule. Please contact us if you need to charter the boat for groups or don’t find a boat ride that suits your itinerary. The table below indicates departure times from Bolungavík. If you are booking a return trip, you should be ready at the shore for the ride back about an hour after the boat departs Bolungavík for most destinations. If coming back from Hornvík, it’s enough to be ready about two hours after the boat departs Bolungavík . But note that the boat might be at your location a bit later depending on bookings that day. So, don’t despair if the boat is not at your location 1,5-2 hours after it departs Bolungavík . We will pick you up if you have a booking…!
