Fast Ferry - Mahe to Praslin

With the arrival of its newest vessel – Isle of MaheCat Cocos now operates three modern high-speed catamarans between the paradise islands of Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. With greater seating capacity and an extra observation deck, the Isle of Mahe is the pride of the Cat Cocos fleet, making up to 3 crossings a day between Mahe and Praslin. To check live seat availability, make instant bookings and receive confirmed e-tickets for your journey, simply select your journey, dates of travel and number of passengers, and click ‘Search’.

The Isle of Mahe will initially be replacing most of the services currently operated by the Isle of Praslin. Departing from the Cat Cocos jetty in Victoria, it takes less than 60 minutes to whisk up to 475 passengers comfortably and smoothly across the Indian Ocean to the Baie Sainte Anne jetty over on Praslin (dependant on sea conditions). 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, with the boarding gate closing 5 minutes before the actual departure time.

Just as on its other vessels – Isle of Praslin & Isle of La Digue – Cat Cocos offers passengers a choice of comfort and service with both Economy and Business class cabins. 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.

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 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 are entitled to a maximum of 40kg of accompanied baggage per person.
