Where do pets travel on board?

On board Baleària's ferriesand fast ferries, your pets can travel safely in pet-friendly calm kennels, carriers, or with you in comfortable pet friendly cabins where the whole family can enjoy a great crossing together.

The calm kennels are in ventilated pet areas that are specially equipped for transporting them, with special cleaning services. They will be able to travel in these spacious and safe spaces throughout the journey. Depending on the ship, you can visit them during the crossing and/or follow their journey via your mobile device thanks to the cameras that allow you to keep an eye on them at all times. 

Depending on the ship, we also have special pet lounges equipped with carriers where you can travel with your pet.

In addition, Baleària has a large number of ferries with pet-friendly cabins, specially equipped for transporting your pet, and where you can stay calmly throughout your journey.
