Weather disruption to ferries in November?

Between 26 October and 5 November we're planning a trip to Naples and Ischia. At the moment we're thinking of spending the weekend in Naples (Friday 26 - Monday 29 Oct) followed by a week in a villa or apartment on Ischia. Our intended return flight is at 12.15 from Naples Airport on Monday 5 November.

I'm assuming the weather can be changeable at that time of year. How often do ferries get cancelled because of the weather? Is it too risky relying on being able to catch a ferry from Ischia to Naples on the morning of 5 November.

Thanks for any inside knowledge.

Hi there!

The hydrofoils are a good bit more prone to interruption than the ferries - which are considerably larger and usually able to sail in any of the weather we get at that time of year!

Can't think that we've ever not just crossed on the day when taking planes back to the UK with that sort of take-off time - and there should be several ships, and several hydrofoils, that would get you there plenty early enough

But some people do prefer knowing that the journey's behind them!

PS... try some of this stuff for assistance with coming and going:
