La Digue Seychelles Ferry

Travel from Mahe to La Digue with the Cat Cocos ferry. With at least two daily ferry departures in each direction, getting from Mahe to La Digue couldn't be easier!
 
The Cat Cocos high-speed catamaran – Isle of La Digue Ferry, is the best choice for getting to La Digue. Following customer requests for a more direct inter-island service, the ferry connects Mahe's Victoria jetty to the Inter Island Ferry jetty in La Passe on La Digue’s north-western coast without the necessity of changing vessels.
 
Passengers should, however, be aware that this is not a non-stop service. The ferry from Mahe to La Digue makes a short 20-30 minute stop at Praslin’s Baie Sainte Anne jetty before continuing on to La Digue; passengers should remain on board during this brief layover. The Isle of La Digue Ferry can carry up to 227 passengers, and although slightly smaller than the Isle of Praslin Ferry, it still features all the same levels of comfort and safety. Just like its big sister, the Isle of La Digue Ferry has been configured into three areas of comfort.
