Calvi Ferries: Corsica Ferries

Corsica Ferries operates a service from Nice to Calvi throughout the year, with sailings running every day during the summer months.

The crossing takes about 3 hours on the Express ferry and 5 hours, 30 minutes on the larger vehicle ferry. Services on this route vary greatly throughout the year, with winter services often suspended due to bad weather.

The Corsica Ferry Company operates a fleet of eight ships, with four dedicated to express passenger services and four larger ships dedicated to a slower vehicle service. The Calvi to Nice fast service is provided by the Corsica Express II, which can carry over 500 passengers and up to 150 vehicles, while the slower service is provided by a larger roll on, roll off ferry capable of carrying around 1,500 passengers and 500 vehicles.

All the express ships in the Corsica Ferry fleet are modern, well-equipped vessels with comfortable seating and entertainment areas for children and adults alike, while the larger vehicle ferries come equipped with a swimming pool, cinema and a choice of eateries.

3 hours. SNCM also provides a weekly overnight service between Calvi and Marseille, with a crossing time of around 11 hours. The schedules for both routes vary throughout the year, so passengers are advised to check with the company for an up-to-date timetable prior to departure.

SNCM Ferries boasts a fleet of 10 ships, with five large cruise ferries operating the longer routes, four smaller ferries operating the overnight route from Marseille and one high-speed vessel used for short passenger services.
