Driving from Bergen to Stavanger

We are a family of 6 arriving in Bergen on a Hurtigurten ship at 2:30 pm on July 8th. We have car rentals reserved for 5:00 pm at the airport. No rental was available from the city center.

The plan is to drive to Stavanger. Stay overnight. Hike the pulpit rock and return to Bergen the next day.

I see that there are Ferry Crossings on E39. My question is is this doable at this time of the evening?

Thank You!

Yes, but the drive is some 5 hours+, so you will reach Stavanger at around 23:00

Thank You so much for the response!

I have another question regarding this journey. Do the 2 ferries we have to take get full and we will not be able to get on it if we arrive close to their departure times?

For example, if we arrive at 5:45 pm for a ferry that leaves at 6:00, can we still get on it?

During weekend rushes you use be prepared to wait for the next departure, but usually not a big probl.
