Mahe to Praslin

Praslin Ferry SeychellesGetting from Mahe to Praslin is quick and easy aboard a Cat Cocos high-speed catamaran – Isle of Mahe or Isle of Praslin. In just 60 minutes you’ll be transported from Mahe's Victoria quayside to the Baie Sainte Anne jetty on Praslin.

Introduced in August 2013, the new Isle of Mahe is a modern 36-metre catamaran with a capacity of 475 passengers split over 3 decks and is the most advanced vessel in the Cat Cocos fleet. The Isle of Praslin, in service since 2006, is slightly smaller, taking up to 350 passengers. But with speeds of up to 36 knots, it's the fastest in Seychelles.

Both vessels offer a choice of Economy classes as well as a dedicated Business Class lounge, air-conditioned cabins and on-board refreshments & entertainment, along with unrivalled levels of comfort at the most affordable rates. Next to all this, both vessels are fitted with Ride Control – a state-of-the-art system that dampens the vibrations caused by choppy seas – to ensure your inter-island crossing will be smooth from start to finish, leaving you relaxed and refreshed when you arrive at your destination.

The journey time between Mahe and Praslin is approximately 60 minutes. Departing from the Cat Cocos jetty in Victoria, you’ll pass by the Ste. Anne National Marine Park before heading into open water. Leaving the mountainous backdrop of Mahe behind, you’ll speed your way across the Indian Ocean towards Praslin’s Baie Sainte Anne. En-route you can sit back, relax and enjoy the panoramic views and comfortable service aboard your Cat Cocos ferry. Arrival on Praslin is at the Cat Cocos / Inter Island Ferry jetty in Baie Sainte Anne in the east of Praslin. Transportation connections from the jetty include local buses, taxis and hotel shuttle services.

Mahe to La Digue

La Digue Seychelles FerryIn 2011, Cat Cocos introduced their second high-speed catamaran – Isle of La Digue – to service the route from Mahe to La Digue. Following customer requests for a more direct inter-island service, the Isle of La Digue now operates once-daily from Mahe's Victoria jetty to the Inter Island Ferry jetty in La Passe on La Digue’s north-western coast. Passengers can now comfortably travel from Mahe to La Digue without always having to change vessels.

Passengers should, however, be aware that this is not a non-stop service. The Isle of La Digue makes a short 20-30 minute stop at Praslin’s Baie Sainte Anne jetty before continuing its journey on to La Digue; passengers should remain on-board during this brief layover.

The Isle of La Digue can carry up to 227 passengers, and although slightly smaller than the Isle of Praslin, it still features all the same levels of comfort and safety. Just like its big sister, the Isle of La Digue has been configured into 3 areas of comfort.

With very few vehicles on the island, transportation connections from the jetty are limited. Should your hotel not provide a transfer service for you and/or your luggage, motorised taxis (pick-up truck) are available as well as the more traditional ox-cart taxis. For day-trippers and those without luggage, bicycle rental agents are located within a few metres of the jetty.

Should you for any reason miss your Mahe/La Digue or La Digue/Mahe departure your ticket will only remain valid for the Mahe/Praslin or Praslin/Mahe part of the journey. You will then have to make your own alternative transfer arrangements for travel between Praslin and La Digue.
Inter Island Ferry operates a regular shuttle service between the islands.
