Seychelles: Cat Cocos and Inter Island ferry,
Mahe - Praslin - La Digue:

Ferry connections between the Seychelles islands:

To avoid disappointments, please make your reservations at least 2 weeks in advance.

a) MAHÉ - PRASLIN - LA DIGUE

Ferry connections Mahe - Praslin - La Digue

There are 2 or 3 ferry connections daily between Mahe and Praslin, with the evening ferry continuing to La Digue. The morning ferry has a direct connection from La Digue.
The ferryboat going back and forth between Mahe and La Digue is usually the one which is smaller than the one running between Mahe and Praslin. So if you are prone to sea sickness it's probably a good idea to change boats on Praslin and take the larger ferryboat on the Mahe - Praslin leg.

CLASSES:
You may choose between 3 classes:
Economy Main Cabin (on sea level, it's a closed cabin with aircon), Economy Class Upper Cabin (upstairs, outside but with spray protection) und Business Class. For a picture explaining the position of the different classes, click here.
The 15 € surcharge for business class is not really worth the money, we think.

If you book economy, please let us know whether you prefer "main cabin" or "upper deck". Both cost the same.


LUGGAGE:
The maximum allowance normally is: 2 pieces of luggage, with a total of 21 kgs. Extra weight has to be paid. For details please see here.
However, we of SITOURS have a special deal with the ferry company and our clients get a 30 kgs allowance. Please note that you get this 30 kgs allowance only when you book your ferry tickets through us!
Additionally, 1 piece of cabin luggage with dimensions not exceeding 50x30x20 cm is allowed.

HOW TO MAKE A BOOKING:
Please make your reservations about 2 or 3 weeks in advance. 1 week is the absolute minimum.
a) Either you make yor ferry bookings together with your guesthouse/hotel bookings through us. In that case, we will take care of everything, ensuring you the best possible connections.
b) For ferry-only bookings, please fill in the booking form or send an email to ferries@seychelles-info.com, stating the route, the exact date and time you wish to travel, the full names of all passengers and the birth dates of the children, if applicable.

HOW MUCH?

We have a special arrangement with the ferry company, so it is cheaper if you book your ferry tickets through us than booking directly or buying your tickets at the harbour!

The price for Mahe - Praslin is 50 € for adults (one-way). Children 02-12 years old only pay 25 € (one-way).
The price for Mahe - La Digue is 64 € for adults (one-way). Children 02-12 years old only pay 32 € (one-way).
If you book one-way only, we have to charge 10 € extra as service fee. So it is better to book a return trip. That will save you the service fee and also the hassle of queuing up a second time.
You can change the timings later if you wish (one change is free), provided there are seats available on the chosen ferry. Thus you remain flexible.

Please note that the tickets have to be paid in advance, by bank transfer! Payment on site is not possible. To minimize time and effort, we do not issue invoices. Thank you for your understanding.

In return you will receive a voucher from us, with reservation number, which guarantees your seat.

BUS FROM / TO MAHE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT:
We offer a bus shuttle between Mahe airport and the ferry jetty. The shuttle leaves from the airport at 09:00 and 15:00 hrs, going directly to the ferry jetty. On Sundays there is an additional shuttle bus at 08:00 hrs. From the harbour to the airport, the bus leaves after the ferry arrival. If you require the shuttle bus from or to the airport, please let us know your flight details.
This transfer costs 10 € for adults and 5 € for children (one-way).
Approximate travel time between the airport and the jetty is 15-20 minutes, depending on traffic.

CHANGING YOUR RESERVATION:
You may change the ferry booking without extra charge later (one change is free) - provided there are seats available for the new date. Thus you remain very flexible when booking return tickets.
