A terrific service and a lovely boat ride. We went from Santa Margherita to San Frutuosso. Reasonable, on time, and easy.

Great way to see all the views into Portofino. Take in the sights and the fresh air! The Italian crew on board isn't that bad either! HA-

If you took the train here and want to go to Portofino taking the boat is the way to do it. Wonderful views and as quick as a taxi and a little less in cost.

Our tour group took this ferry from Santa Margherita to Portofino and had excellent deck seats providing a great shoreline view of the rugged coast and clinging homes. The boat is well appointed and there are restrooms but no other services.
