A Bridge to Elba

The island of Elba is “accessible” at any time of the year, this is the main destination of Moby and Toremar. This service aims at improving connections from the Italian mainland to the island.

A Bridge to Elba is the name of the initiative. Thanks to the two shipping companies that are responding to the needs of passengers. Offering the opportunity to reach the beautiful Tuscan island at any time of the year with ever more “versatile” and frequent connections.

Versatility is the main feature of this mode, which aims on the one hand to improve the service to customers and on the other hand to support the area’s tourism development policy, even in times of fewer visitors.

Depart earlier! A service dedicated to travelers.

What is the mode “Depart Earlier“? What are the advantages of this service for passengers travelling to Elba?

The great novelty of the initiative is the possibility for travelers to use any Moby or Toremar departure before the booked departure on the same day. This means that all passengers travelling from Piombino to Portoferraio, Cavo or Rio Marina and vice versa can avoid unnecessary waiting times in the port as they can depart by ferry from both companies earlier than the reserved time.

All this without any surcharge and without buying a new ticket. If there is availability for you on an earlier ferry, the port staff will give the necessary indications. Time and organization advantage for all travelers who can use both Moby and Toremar ferries with a single ticket thanks to the mode Depart Earlier!


It is not only a service that offers passengers more freedom and flexibility when travelling, but also a strong expansion of connections that significantly reduces the distance between the island and the mainland. Moby and Toremar are in fact able to reach the beautiful resorts on the island of Elba 365 days a year, which means one ferry every 20 minutes in high season and about 100 departures a day.

More departures to and from the island and an exclusive initiative that complements the expansion of offers and low fares for Elba and the continuous improvement of services for passengers.
