Horta, Azores

The ships exact location in port is often controlled by the port authorities and they will only allocate a docking position a few days before.

Any changes will be communicated to you before your voyage start date. Make sure you make a note of the ship’s number found in your confirmation email in case of any problems on the day.

Horta harbour is approximately 10km from the airport on the island of Faial, Azores.
