Naviera Armas Ferries is a company in Spain, founded in the 1940s, which operates at least 10 ferries. The company operates mainly in the Canaries, although from 2008 services were available to the island of Madeira and Portugal, further north. However at the end of January 2012 the service to Madeira was abruptly withdrawn, the reason for this together with the future of the route being unclear.
