Crossing Heligoland with the highspeed catamaran

With 36 knots (approx. 67 km/h) to Heligoland - this is only possible with a highspeed catamaran. This makes the crossing to Heligoland part of the island adventure. Enjoy the impressive power of the engines of the ship "Halunder Jet". Despite high speed you will experience a relaxed Heligoland crossing. This is ensured by the excellent sea state behavior and the computer-controlled stabilization system of our ferries.

Enjoy Heligoland with children

Children will certainly not be bored during the crossing to Heligoland. At the comfortable seat with table, little passengers can listen to audio books, read books or draw. It's at least as exciting to admire the foaming spray and keep an eye out for seagulls.
