High Speed To Helgoland – Twice As Often

San Gwann auf dem Wasser.

FRS Helgoline deploys second catamaran to Helgoland

Tuesdays from Cuxhaven with day trip to Hamburg


The "San Gwann" will connect the North Sea spa resort of Cuxhaven with the deep-sea island of Helgoland daily from 19th June. With the early departure at 10:00 a.m., the FRS Helgoline offers about six hours of the longest island stay on Helgoland – enough time to enjoy the island in all its diversity. On the island tour to the island's landmark, the Lange Anna, visitors will also gain an insight into the unique and impressive nature, culture and history of the Red Rock. The extra-long stay on the island also offers enough time to plunge into the North Sea on the offshore bathing dune or to browse in the many small shops on the island. At 17:00 o'clock, the catamaran starts the trip back to the mainland. Every Sunday, the "San Gwann" leaves already at 8:30 a.m., in order to start early at 2 p.m. from Helgoland after a four-hour stay on the island. This departure time is ideal for holidaymakers who want to start their journey home as soon as possible after checking out their accommodation on Helgoland.

The well-known "Halunder Jet" will continue to head for Helgoland at 9:00 a.m. from the Hamburg St. Pauli Landungsbrücken. In addition, the catamaran will support the departure point Cuxhaven in case of increased demand as well as every Sunday with a departure at 11:30 a.m. from the "Alte Liebe".


Day trip to Hamburg from Cuxhaven


In July and August, the North Sea spa resort of Cuxhaven has one more attraction: Every Tuesday at 8:30 a.m., the "San Gwann" sails from Cuxhaven directly to the Hanseatic City of Hamburg. Here the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken, the Elbphilharmonie Concert Hall, the Hafen City and the Speicherstadt attract visitors. Or those interested can use the time for an extensive shopping tour in the nearby city centre. The return journey is at 18:00 o'clock.
