Plymouth to Spain ferries

Cruise to Spain in luxury on our flagship cruise ferry, Pont-Aven. Taking just 20 hours from Plymouth to Santander, this route is the fastest ferry service to Spain from the UK.

Santander is the beautiful capital of Cantabria and the perfect gateway to explore the stunning mountain landscape of the Picos de Europa that's just an hour's drive inland. Or head west to picturesque Asturias and lush, green Galicia.

Sail weekly on our flagship, Pont-Aven, and from March 2021, there are two sailings a week. For added travel flexibility, you can mix and match your routes with Portsmouth to Spain ferry route options for the most convenient journey.

Plymouth and Santander both have excellent road links with easy access to the motorway network for a fast journey to and from the ports. Plymouth offers plenty of local amenities and is easily reached from Wales and the West Country. Santander is a historic city and a tourist destination in its own right. It is also ideally positioned for accessing holiday destinations throughout Spain and southern France.
