Hi, There are 3 ways I think to travel to Fuerteventura from Playa Blanca. There is the ARNAS ferry which takes about 40 minutes, the Fred Olsen Catamaran which takes about 12 mins. Both of these are car ferrys as well as foot passengers, There is also the Princessa Ico Boat which takes approx 30 mins which is a passenger boat only and looks like one of the Whale & dolphin boats. The Princessa Ico is 23 euro's return and the times are Playa Blanca departures 09:30 10:30 12:00 and 16:15 and returning from Fuerteventura 10:30 11:30 13:00 or 17:15 I'm afraid I don't know the timings of the other boats. All boats leave from the Harbour. I guess its personal choice how you want to get there, whether you go by fastest means or want to use the boat trip as part of the adventure. Hope this helps

As GingieCat said there are three ways to get to Fuerteventura from playa Blanca. I would say when choosing whether to go on the large ferry or the small Princessa Ico you need to think about travel sickness.

I went on the Princessa last year an the weather was lovely but the sea was terribly rough due to wind, let's say not everyone was to well. However, if you choose the ferry/catamaran obviously you can take your car and I find it's better for suffers of sea sickness.

The Princessa is a nice way to travel as you are in the open air and can see the fish under the boat

Good luck

Fred Olsen takes about 20 mins, the Armas ferry takes 35 mins, so I really can't see how the Ico can do it in 30.
