Fred Oslen Express
Fred Olsen Express covers 5 routes between the Canary Islands, carrying more than 2,700,000 foot passengers, 550,000 cars and more than 200,000 heavy goods vehicles each year. Fred Olsen Express is part of Fred Olsen & Co., the shipping company that also owns Fred Olsen Cruises and Fred Olsen Tankers. Fred Olsen first established themselves in La Gomera in 1904, and created shipping routes to export the tomato and banana crops to Europe. The ferry service was established in 1974, and now has routes to all 7 of the islands in the Canaries.
Fred Olsen Express operates a fast, yet quality service with 4 catamarans and 1 trimaran (the largest in the world), typically offering a choice of bars or cafeterias on board, as well as sundecks, and comfortable lounges, with some ferries having airline-style seating.
