Also See my review in the Liberty Lines section entitled tips and how-to’s. Our ferry said Ustica but tickets and website said Liberty. I also want to mention, it was helpful for us to use our iPhone GPS on google maps to confirm which of the aeolian islands the ferry was stopping before Salina where we got off. Many times there was no announcement in English and they do not use loudspeakers. If you’re like me, you like to double check where you are and the iPhone GPS did that for us. Also in Salina, there are two ferry stops, second one was Santa Marina where we disembarked.

I read the other reviews that gave not so good a review. This was a nice boat the the staff was friendly and the boat was clean. It’s a ferry to Ustica. Yes you have to take care of your luggage but that was expected. I will have to say one to the crew members was amazing. He went out of his way to help us.

We purchased tickets online to ride to Ustica and could not find the spot to wait - it was behind several truck trailers and not at all well marked. We missed the 9:00 boat and were told our ticket was lost. The people at the ticket office did not seem to care or want to help at all. I would NOT recommend this service to anyone.

We booked a trip to Ustica from Palermo in the morning for a hydrofoil boat taking off fifteen minutes later, it was no problem. Though we had to wait a while in the queue (approx. 20-30 minutes). People were nice and understood English. Unlike on the boat itself. None of the crew spoke english and the boat is old and shabby. No service at all, speakers are broken and they repeat the safety stuff like a hundred times on Italian and English. Hydrofoil only takes 1.5h. You cannot take any vehicles just one piece of baggage each. The seats are old and uncomfortable, impossible to sleep in there. We spent 100€ for two people for a trip and the return, so €25 each per way.

We took the Ustica hydrofoil to and from Favignana. via Trapani (a town best avoided). As it was August (peak season) the ferries are crowded and many locals use the ferry when shopping so there is plenty of freight. Exit ways and toilet doors had bags and freight stacked against them, the air con doesn't work and the locals are reluctant to make seats available (i.e. bags are placed on are seats). Overall not a great travel experience.
