About Porto Velas

Porto Horta located on Sao Jorge island. The island is one of nine islands found in Azores - a group of islands 850 miles west of the Portuguese coastline. This city of Sao Jorge has a population of only 5,500 people (approximately). Velas, the town where the port is located, was the first inhabited area of the island. The town itself is very charming with small narrow streets and a pretty garden in the centre. You will also find a church, manor house and the Sacred Art Museum which boasts a collection of religious artefacts and paintings. If you walk a little further out of the town, you will come across a small but beautiful Botanical Garden, which also offers some stunning views.

Ferries to and from Porto Velas

Atlanticoline offers both vehicle and foot passenger ferry services between the Azores islands. They operate three vessels called Santorini, Ariel and Hellenic Wind. On board you will find catering services, shops and plenty of comfortable seating to relax on through out your journey.

Porto Velas port facilities

Porto Horta ferry port is close to the town so allows passengers easy access to the local amenities such as restaurants and cafes. There is also a company by the harbour where you can rent a car if necessary.

    • The ferry was late by about 35 minutes. There was no on-board catering and no safety announcements made.
