Ferry Boat to Favignana from Trapani in late October

I am planning 5 days in Favignana in late Oct and want any recommendation on whether to wait until arrival in Trapani or should i prebuy on the Sirremar site? I am thinking it might be prudent to wait to see what the weather will be when i arrive as i know it is unpredictable that time of year and often the boats won't sail. Also what spots should i not miss around Favignana for getting some sun and also if someone has a tip on renting a boat for a day to maybe a secluded cove.

1. Re: Ferry Boat to Favignana from Trapani in late October

Nobody ever buys advance tickets for the car ferry from Trapani to Favignana, let alone in late October, when there are likely to be fewer than 50 passengers (out of a maximum capacity of 800)!

Just buy the ticket shortly before you board the ferry in Trapani. Check the website carefully, since Siremar is in bankruptcy and schedules could change with little warning.

Welcome to Sicily mooresy2!

The last two out of three Octobers were not very nice – Never purchase your ticket in advance.

Favignana will be quiet by the end of October – You won’t find crowds anywhere and fishermen in port will be looking for you!
