Ferry from Plymouth

by ramblingrose

We are considering taking the ferry from Plymouth England to Santander. Does anyone know if the waterway is very rough for this voyage? Any other comments about the journey are welcome.

Thank you

I did this journey when I was quite young so can't remember that well but have done a lot of channel crossings.
My advice would just be to check the weather reports for when you want to travel, as you know it all depends on that really.
I've never been ill, but then I've never had any form of travel sickness, have you been ill in the past? Ginger is a very good natural anti-sea sickness remedy.
My North Sea ferry journies have been a lot worse than any channel ones, just came back from the Isle of Wight and the sea was glass calm, I know it's not as exposed as the Channel but you do get a strong current.

RE: Ferry from Plymouth

by PaulKirk

All the ferries have improved in recent years and have good stabilisers that stop them rolling around at the slightest swell. The Bay of Biscay has always had a reputation for rough seas and in rough weather the boat is going to pitch. But for any normal sailing it should be fine. I think your biggest problem will be the tedium of the time it takes whilst the prices are not cheap. Going out is part of the holiday but coming back is a real drag. You might find it cheaper to fly to Bilbao or Asturias and hire a car.

by catarata

Visit Picos de Europa, an amount of tall and craggy rocks, a rugged mountainous region in north Spain
with a great caving area! The area has a number of deep caves, including sima del Trave, the 5th
deepest in the world. In the highest parts of the mountains you may even get to find wild free chamoises!!!!1So real and beautiful!

Surf's up

by chrishc

This picture doesn't really do the waves justice, but Santander seemed to be a mecca for surfers, at one time there must have been a hundred in the water.

It was quite fun to see them racing for the same wave and the unsuccessful plunge into the briny. Seemed to be a long planky thing with a bit sticking out of the bottom.

I think they may have been kinky as they were all wearing rubber.

A 4x4 (or SUV) seemed obligatory.

Touring The Bay

by nhcram

Take a trip in a modern catamaran motor boat.
In the spring-summer-autumn season the company organises excursions around the bay and out to the Sardinero cove visiting the most attractive spots along the coast line.
Some of the places visited are Somo, LaIsla de Mouro and la Magdalena.
The company that organises these trips are Los Reginas , S.A
You can get tickets (and the boat) from the Paseo Maritimo

Playa del Camello

by andal13

Playa del Camello (Camel Beach) is one of the several nice beachs of Santander. The city has a district called "El Sardinero" over the sea, where there are beautiful mansions.

La Playa del Camello es una de las varias playas de Santander. La ciudad tiene una zona llamada "El Sardinero" sobre el mar, en donde se encuentran mansiones espectaculares.

The Admiral Sphere

by chrishc

I thought this was quite an intriguing bit of sculpture. Having seen it in a guide book we set out to find it, which we did (obviously).

But since then I have not been able to find any more information on it.
