Return to Roa

the return ferry from Piel Island

the return ferry from Piel Island

The ferry leaves Roa at 11:00 each day (from Easter). No charge for the outward journey to Piel Island – but £4 to get back! (Do not be tempted to swim the kilometre of treacherous currents – just pay up.) The service may not always run on time – we waited to photograph it leaving the next day but by 11:30 no one had arrived so we gave up. Charming unpredictability?

The small ferry is called Enterprise 2 . When we travelled it was worryingly full of campers (with a huge amount of equipment and supplies) for the outward journey – I couldn’t help wondering what happened to Enterprise 1! 
I have to report that the journey was both enjoyable and completely safe.
