Mahe to La Digue best beachesIn 2011, Cat Cocos launched its Isle of La Digue Ferry. The high-speed catamaran was introduced to offer passengers a more direct service from Mahe to La Digue. The ferry can carry up to 227 passengers and, like all Cat Cocos ferries, offers both Economy and Business class cabins. Economy class passengers can 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. Hotel pick-ups are approx. 45-90 minutes before departure (depending on which island you're on and the distance between your hotel and the jetty).

It is recommended to arrive at the jetty at least 1 hour in advance, giving you time to check in your luggage. You will receive Boarding Passes by email 24-48 hours before departure. If, for some reason, you do not have your boarding pass when you get to the jetty, simply visit the Creole Travel Services office for assistance. Boarding starts 30 minutes before departure at the Cat Cocos Berth in Victoria, with the Boarding Gate closing 5 minutes before the actual departure time.
