You decide on site, whether you prefer to sit in the climatized cabin below or rather on the upper deck outside.
Departure timings are currently as follows:
In case the Cat Cocos ferry from Mahé would be running late (which it rarely does), please don't worry: the Cat Rose will usually wait for all connecting passengers booked to La Digue.
How long does the crossing take?
Praslin - La Digue or vice versa: 15-20 minutes
Question: "Taking the 10:30 hrs ferry from Mahe to Praslin, is there enough time to catch the connecting ferry at 11:45 Uhr from Praslin to La Digue?"
Answer: "Yes, that's no problem at all. You will arrive on Praslin at 11:30 hrs, there is enough time to change ferries. Please do not worry, in case of a – very rare – delay by Cat Cocos, the Cat Rose from Praslin to La Digue will be waiting for connecting passengers coming from Mahe."
Same as with Cat Cocos, our clients have a 30 kgs luggage allowance.
Additionally, you may take hand luggage.
The "Cat Rose" ferry from Praslin to La Digue departs from the same jetty on Praslin where the "Cat Cocos" from Mahé arrives. Easy.
On La Digue, you can't possibly miss the jetty either.
