    If I'm not mistaken, and based from my experience, the Berlenga ferry from Peniche I think runs only from early spring to about late September. But my travel to this beautiful little island took place a couple of years back. Outside of those months, you can probably hire a private boat from Peniche fishermen to take you there. But I'd check directly with the tourist office in Peniche.

    Solodancer is right. The commercial trips are made by Viamar from May 15th to September 15th. (cabo-avelar.com/horarios.htm... or phone 351 262 785646).
    Out of that period only fishing ships risk (if the sea allows it) to take people there.

    Fishing contacts:
    Nautipesca - 351 91 7588358
    Berlenga Turpesca - 351 262 789960
    Julios - 351 91 7601114 / 351 262 782698 (at night)
    Mensageiro do Mar - 351 96 5167233

    Residence in the island (I don´t know if available out of season) is possible in two places:
    Casa Abrigo - Forte de S. João Baptista, a sort of camping inside walls - phone 351 262 750 244
    Pavilhão Mar e Sol, more expensive and with the essential conditions- 351 262 750 331
    Enjoy
