Economy class passengers have the option of travelling inside on the main air-conditioned deck – Coco de Mer Cabin – or outside on the Island Hopper Upper Deck, with stunning views and sea breezes. For those looking for even greater comfort, Business Class passengers can enjoy the All Inclusive* service of the Lazio Lounge.

All Cat Cocos passengers are eligible to make use of the shared shuttle bus transfer service between the Mahe, Praslin and La Digue ferry jetties and the airport and/or hotels (fees apply). Buses from Mahe Airport leave no later than 1 hour before the scheduled ferry departure time. Hotel pick-ups vary between 45-90 minutes before departure, depending on which island you’re staying on and the distance from your hotel to the jetty. For airport or hotel drop-offs, the buses leave the jetty after each ferry arrival.
