Cat Cocos operates three high-speed catamarans between the islands of Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. Their second largest catamaran - Isle of Praslin - together with its big sister - Isle of Mahe - cover the route from Mahe to Praslin, offering several daily departures. The slightly smaller - Isle of La Digue - also operates between Mahe and Praslin with an additional onward service to the island of La Digue.

The Isle of Praslin departs from Mahe's Victoria jetty and travels non-stop to Praslin’s Baie Sainte Anne. Ferry Mahe to Praslin journey time is approximately 60 minutes, 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 at the Cat Cocos jetty in Victoria, with the Boarding Gate closing 5 minutes before the actual departure time.
Cat Cocos offers passengers a choice of both Economy and Business class travel. Economy class passengers have the option to travel in either the Coco de Mer Cabin or out on the Island Hopper Upper Deck. Business Class passengers have their own separate entrance at the jetty and upon boarding will be directed to the Lazio Lounge - their own dedicated cabin - from where they can begin to enjoy the All-Inclusive service.
A shared shuttle bus service is available to all Cat Cocos passengers for transfers between the Mahe, Praslin and La Digue ferry jetties and airport/hotels (fees apply). From Mahe Airport, buses leave no later than 1 hour before the ferry departure time. Hotel pick-up times will vary per island (approximately 45-90 minutes before departure), depending on the distance between your hotel and the jetty. Transfers back to the airport, or your hotel, are available after each ferry arrival.
