Ferry or Bus from Genoa to Portofino or Comogli

We will be on a cruise that stops for a day in Genoa on January 8th from 9am to 5pm. We were wondering if it's possible to go to either Portofino or Comogli via ferry or bus and return by the time the ship leaves at 5pm. Is there a website that I could check out with departure and return times? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks a bunch.

Ciao, Lynne

There are no relevant boats in January, and the bus journey is long and inconvenient.

For trains from Genova Piazza Principe to Camogli (note spelling) and Santa Margherita Ligure-Portofino see www.trenitalia.com clicking the UK flag first for English and entering your 'hour' of departure, e.g. '9' for 09.00. For fares use a date in the next seven days. Buy tickets in Genoa.

For the brief ride from Santa Margherita to Portofino there are buses or taxis.

In brief, trains from Genova PP to Camogli = 43-48 mins, to SML, 48-53 mins - in both cases there can be only 1 per hour at certain times so make sure to check return times on arrival, if not before.
