Ferries from Spain or Portugal to Madeira

Can anyone out there tell me if there is a ferry crossing available that runs from Spain or Portugal to Madeira as we want to drive down from France. Can't find a thing on the internet! Many thanks in advance,

There are no ferry's at all, only ferries run from Funchal to Porto Santo and during the summer from Funchal to Gran Canaria

I am afraid that the only option is to fly. There are regular flights from Lisbon.

Have a look at the following airlines : -

SATA - www.sata.pt

TAP - www.flytap.com

PGA - www.flypga.pt

There is indeed a ferry service between Portimao (Portugal) that makes the journey to Funchal, and onwards to Tenerife and Gran Canaria. This service I believe began in early 2008 and looks like being continued through to 2009. There's some indication that this service will at some point be extended to Agadir. Check out Naviera Armas' website
