Ausflüge in Seychellen: Introduced in 2011, the second high-speed catamaran - Isle of La Digue - now offers passengers a more direct service between the islands of Mahe and 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.
With the exception of Fridays, passengers should however be aware that the ferry Mahe to La Digue is not a non-stop service. Including the Praslin stopover, total journey times are approximately 90 minutes, dependent 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 voucher to staff at the jetty and they will provide you with your Boarding Pass and assist you in checking-in your luggage.
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.
