NEW INTER ISLAND FERRY ARRIVES
Creole Travel Services, one of the archipelago’s leading destination management companies, has imported a sister ship to the ‘Cat Cocos’, the main catamaran ferry in use between Mahe’s port and the island of Praslin. The new ferry, ‘Isle La Digue’ will very likely run alternate scheduled services between the two islands, be used as back up and for charters and provide much needed extra capacity when big international cruise liners dock at Port Victoria.
The new ferry arrived from Australia, where it was built for Creole Travel Services and has similar facilities for passengers, i.e. a bar on board and two different classes as the larger ‘Cat Cocos’.
It was not immediately possible to confirm when the new ferry would enter full service while various inspections by the new owners and maritime authorities of Seychelles are being carried out before officially launching the new ferry in a public function.
