Isle of La Digue
Mahe to La Digue
Departing in the evening from Mahe's Victoria jetty, the Isle of La Digue follows the same route as its sister vessel - Isle of Praslin & Isle of Mahe - towards the island of Praslin, where after a short stop-over it continues the last leg of its journey, arriving on La Digue just in time for sunset. Early the next morning the same vessel departs the La Passe jetty and travels, via Praslin, back to Mahe.
Passengers should be aware that, with the exception of Fridays, the ferry Mahe to La Digue is not a non-stop service. Including the Praslin stopover, total journey times are approximately 90 minutes, dependant on sea conditions, which makes the Isle of La Digue an ideal solution for passengers looking for a hassle-free service from Mahe to La Digue and vice versa. Just present your e-ticket to the CTS (Creole Travel Services) staff at the jetty and they will provide you with your Boarding Pass and assist you in checking-in your luggage. Boarding starts 30 minutes before departure at the Cat Cocos jetty in Victoria, with the Boarding Gate closing 5 minutes before the actual departure time.
The Isle of La Digue can carry up to 227 passengers and, just like its big sister, both Economy and Business classes available. Economy class passengers can choose to travel in the fully air-conditioned Coco de Mer Cabin on the main deck or outside on the Island Hopper Upper Deck. Business Class passengers have their own dedicated cabin - Lazio Lounge - on the upper deck.
A shared shuttle bus transfer to/from the Mahe, Praslin or La Digue ferry jetty is available to all Cat Cocos passengers (fees apply). Buses leave Mahe Airport up to 1 hour before the scheduled ferry departure time, with hotel pick-ups approximately 45-90 minutes before departure (depending which island you're on and the distance between your hotel and the jetty).
Luggage allowances are the same as on the Isle of Praslin. Each passenger is permitted one piece of carry-on/cabin baggage not exceeding 7kg with maximum dimensions of 50cm X 30cm X 20cm. Any cabin baggage above this size will be considered as checked baggage. All Economy Class passengers are allowed up to 30kg of accompanied checked baggage per person. Any luggage weighing more than 30kg will be charged an excess luggage fee of €2.00 per kilo. Passengers travelling in Business Class will be entitled to a maximum of 40kg of accompanied baggage per person.
