Vigo to Cies Islands ferry question

Hello all,

I see there is availability with Mar de Ons for travel on the 5th of May. My question is whether I need authorization to be on the island. I read that there is a limit on visitors to the island.

Also, is it suggested that I book in advance or would there still be tickets if I were to do so on the particular day? I am afraid poor weather may hinder plans; if that happens. I wouldn't want to spend 5+ hours on a beach if it is raining the whole time.

Please advise and thank you in advance for your responses and suggestions!

Thanks!

If you are sure that spaces are available then, to answer the question yes it is advisable to reserve. Spaces are limited.

Thank you for your response.

Is there a good chance of rain as I know Galicia gets a lot of rain. Would that defeat the purpose of going then?

Please advise.

Thank you.

weather is unpredictable we have had a huge long dry spell recently. So much so that it was a ban on burning outside of buildings an bbqs.

If that is what the ferry website states then why do you doubt it?

I am actually having trouble on Mar de Ons making the purchase; it shows store has filter that does not permit the operation.

Have you heard anything similar from the past?

I will try again tomorrow during the working hours in Spain.

There is history behind this need. I am not willing to go into it here. So go to the government of Galicia website (Xunta) and get your permission first.

I personally have doubt s on the date you think you can go go will be allowed.
