Fred Olsen ferries www.fredolsen.es/english/index.asp (book online and reserve your booking card) run a 20 minute fast crossing from Playa Blanca, Lanzarote to Corralejo every 2 hours between 8am to 6pm. Tariffs are not expensive for foot passengers and as long as your flight lands at Lanzarote airport prior to 5.30 pm, a 35 minute taxi ride gets you to the ferry port in good time to hop on the Fred Olsen ferry. The last ferry to leave for Corralejo harbour is 19.00hrs which is operated by the rival company Armas:
It is therefore possible to land at Lanzarote airport as late as 5.30 pm and still make the ferry. This taxi ride is the identical cost and travelling distance it would have been had you arrived in Fuerteventura airport with the destination of Corralejo. A return leg to Arrecife is very easy to organise. It simply involves catching the ferry from Corralejo back to Playa Blanca and stepping into a taxi back to Arrecife airport.
This is a lovely way of arriving in Corralejo harbour and one that many locals use frequently for business trips to and from Lanzarote. The ferry is a large comfortable modern vessel and it effortlessly speeds you across the short strait separating the two islands.
It really is easy to organise the crossing and with the flight savings to Lanzarote it makes for a wise choice of travel.
