Ferry connections between Seychelles Islands
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. So it's ideal for island hopping.
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.
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.
You may choose between 3 classes:
Economy Main Cabin (174 seats. On sea level, a closed cabin with aircon), Economy Class Upper Cabin: (142 seats. Upstairs, outside but with spray protection) und Business Class (34 seats). 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".
We have a special deal with the ferry company and our clients get a 30 kgs allowance in economy class and 40 kgs in business class.
Additionally, 1 piece of cabin luggage with dimensions not exceeding 50x30x20 cm is allowed.
