On inter-island routes, children under the age of 4 travel as a baby, free of charge. This must be indicated when purchasing a ticket. Passengers aged between 4 and 11 years travel with a child fare. On the rest of routes, babies are defined as minors under the age of 1 year and those between 1 and 11 years travel with a child fare.


Minors are defined as anyone under the age of 18.


- Minors aged between 14 and 17 years inclusive may travel alone if they present their documentation.

- All children under the age of 14 must travel accompanied, and under no circumstances are they to travel alone, taking into account that:

* If they travel with their father, mother or legal guardian, they will need a National ID card or Family Book (those under the age of 14 years of Spanish nationality are not required to have their ID card).

* If they are travelling with anyone other than the above, they will need:

  • Authorization signed by one of the parents or by the legal guardian using the form issued by Naviera or the police form.

  • Photocopy of the ID card of the person authorizing the trip.

  • Photocopy of the Family Book in which the minor and the parent or legal guardian appear.

  • The original copy of the minor's national ID card or Family Book is to be presented for embarking. It must not have expired. 


On these lines, where the police check boarding, the National Police and Security Forces will inspect the boarding of minors.



Expectant mothers can travel on all our ships provided they are not over 36 weeks of pregnancy. In addition, they must always be in possession of a medical certificate authorising them to travel.


It is recommended that people with reduced mobility, when purchasing their ticket at the ticket window, through a travel agency or the Internet, let the shipping company personnel know at least 24 hours in advance of any circumstances, so that both ground staff and the crew on board the ship, can make their access to the vessel, their stay on board, and disembarkation as comfortable as possible, and so they can enjoy the same conditions as other passengers of the trip. They are also requested to sign the special assistance request form when purchasing the ticket.

In this way, both the people trained to accompany such passengers to the ship at the land terminal, and the crew assigned to accompany you during the trip, will have at their disposal a list of all the people who will require their services in order to be able to organise the best possible assistance to them.

As a general rule and for operational security reasons, people with reduced mobility shall be the first to board and the last to disembark. In addition, NAVIERA ARMAS, S.A. Cannot guarantee that there are places available for disabled people if notice is not given at least 24 hrs in advance.

Naviera Armas has wheelchairs available on each ship, although for reasons of convenience, we recommend that you bring your own with you, as well as any other item that is necessary for your well-being.

During the purchase process on www.navieraarmas.com you can select "I'm a PMR user" and in the last step, when you select your data, you can tell us which special needs you have.


You can travel with your pet on Naviera Armas * ships, taking into account the following requirements:

  • You can travel inside the ship with your pet, if its size and weight permits, (it must not weigh more than 10 kg) provided the animal is carried within a suitable carrier for small animals (which must not exceed the following dimensions: 50x40x25 cm). 

  • Access is permitted to the seating lounges, but not to the dining areas or berths. You can travel with your pet on the ship's outer decks, and in the areas where this is permitted; you must follow the following rules.
    Respect the other passengers and animals passing through the area.

  • Animals must be kept on a lead when they are outside the cage/crate. Animals classified as dangerous breeds must comply with the following specific rules (lead and muzzle). 

  • The owner is responsible for the animal and picking up droppings. If the animal is travelling inside the vehicle, the owner must sign the document disclaiming responsibility on board and give it to the crew.


Visually-impaired passengers or those with special needs may be accompanied by guide dogs, in accordance with the specific regulations that apply to them, and free of charge. 

Passengers travelling with pets must purchase the appropriate ticket to be allowed to enter the ship, and must present the relevant health documentation, if called upon to do so. You can obtain the ticket for your pet at any of our offices, on this website by initiating a purchase process, from our call centre: 902 45 65 00 or via the Naviera Armas app.


Now you can board directly with only your identity card and without stopping at the ticket window, whether boarding directly on foot or in your vehicle.

With this change it is no longer necessary to obtain your boarding pass at the ticket window or perform self-check-in (as long as the system has indicated so. In some cases it will still be necessary to present yourself at the ticket window, in which case we will notify you of this requirement).

Avoid waiting and save time by simply presenting at the time of boarding your valid identity card used to purchase your ticket. Our staff will take care of checking you in directly from embarking the ship, whether you are travelling on foot or in a vehicle.

Similarly, to ensure proper inspection of your identity card (national identity card (DNI), foreign identity card (NIE) or passport), please make sure it is in good condition.

If travelling with a passport, please ensure that your passport is compatible with ICAO Standard 9303 specifications regarding machine-readable passports.

Boarding with identity cards has already been implemented and is currently in use on all our Canary Islands lines, for both general and resident passengers.

  • Tickets issued (purchased) before this date will retain the reduction percentages that appear on them and that have been applied until now.

  • If you wish to avail of the new reduction of 75%, a new ticket must be issued and the old one must be returned. The terms and conditions and return policies will remain effective (with their relevant expenses if any), in compliance with the terms set out in the new law.
    In the case of the line Cristianos-Valverde, the reduction increases to 75% both for residents in the Canaries and for residents of El Hierro.


The company's returns policy is as follows:

  • Three days before the date the ship departs: 15% of the total ticket price
