A quick way to bounce over the waves to the islands. If you are on a budget it's quite expensive. Up to you if the islands are worth the trip but these boats are fine.

They got the job done and kept the ride to Favignana as pleasant as could be. The boat left for Favignana on time but left back to Trapani a bit after schedule but that was mostly due to the choppy seas. Would definitely use their service again.

Ustica's hydrofoils plying the waters between Trapani and the Egadi Islands are easy to book, rapid, and secure, proceeding on a well kept schedule from the Trapani docks adjacent to the Old City to the principal ports among the islands. One can easily make a day trip or stay over and return on a subsequent day. Published schedules make such... More

Boat was where it was supposed to be at the times posted, interior was nice (italian television was playing) and the ticket seller in Trapani spoke English which was very helpful (I don't suspect anyone on board did though). I took a trip to Favignana in late November, so needless to say there weren't many tourists but the boats still... More

We took hydrofoil to get to Favignana. Trip from Trapani to Favignana was 10Euro person. Trip back wat 7Euro person. Don't know why. All staff selling tickets at ferry harbor speek english what is rather rare in Trapani. First way we had ugly stinking old hydrofoil with diesel exhaust inside. Way back we had pretty new one with air conditioning.... More

We took the ferry to Favignana on Ustica Lines. Easy to buy tickets, a pain getting on the boat, ok schedule but a few weird rules. If you buy a ticket returning at 4pm and decide to leave earlier you have to pay them to change it. It's not a lot but a bit annoying, Otherwise, the trip was fine,... More

The Ustica hydrofoils are an efficient and pleasurable way of visiting the Egadi islands off the coast of Trapani. One can 'island hop' and visit both Favignana and Levanzo in a day or go for a longer day to one of the islands. The hydrofoils run on time and tickets can be bought for one way or return travel (in... More

Most people take the boat to the greater of the Islands - Favignana. We haven't been there so we can't compare but was recommended by people living in Trapani to go to Levanzo instead. It's much calmer and less tourists. When you arrive there is a beach just a cople of hundred meters to the right. The water is crystal... More

They were always on time (+/- 20min), costing 10 euros from Trapani to Favignana and the trip takes 30 min or so. Nothing to complain about.
