Master Ferries is the discount ferry operator and has fast supercat ferries to Denmark from Kristiansand. Colorline is the major operator in Scandinavia and operates from Kristiansand to Sweden, Denmark and the UK. Master Ferries does not operate their Supercat in the winter as it is unable to handle very rough seas.
