The Strait of Bocaina is the name of the sea strip which divides Lanzarote from Fuerteventura. It’s only 15 km, the Lobos Island is the only thing in between.
It’s not difficult to see an Island from the other because there is a small distance,
the sighting may be preveted only during the days with a reduced view.
There are several shipping lines that make the route between Lanzarote and Fuerteventura. Among them there are Armas, Fred Olsen Express and Romero Shipping line.
The usual route for proximity is the one between Playa Blanca and Corralejo.
On one hand the short journey is an advantage. It lasts between 25 and 35 minutes. On the other hand, the departures are frequent in both directions. This helps the transfer between the Islands.
