    I received the ticket 24 hours before departure which is not enough. We had to travel on monday, received the tickets on sunday and then there was nobody in the office to print them. Tried to contact over the email but there is no email written. Could not contact over fill form becouse phone does not support it. Could not contact over whatsup becouse the Link was not working. So Just had to wait and print few hours before departure.

    As you received your tickets that would also mean you saw the below message as well: "Please find attached your E-Tickets. You may download your E-Tickets on your mobile – as mobile check-in is accepted. It is not necessary to print hard copy." The above message clearly states there was no need for you to print a hard copy of the tickets, so assuming you read the message with your E-tickets attached there would have been no issues to begin with. We appreciate your feedback, thank you.
    Nice ferry service!

    The ferry was great. We paid for business and there was no drinks or snacks as advertised. A family was also on there who had not paid for this and were rather noisy

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately due to the pandemic Cat Cocos has stopped offering free snacks and soft drinks in Business Class for health and safety reasons until further notice.
    Average experience, packed deck, seats not very comfortable
    , Apr 2022
    With the tickets obtained here one still must approach the Cat Cocos office and wait in line to get their boarding pass. Don’t arrive to jetty peer at the last minute thinking you are all set to depart with the electronic tickets.

    Easy and fast way to get around the islands for a great price! Easy check in and boarding process. Would highly recommend!
    Economy Class ticket for Business price
    , Aug 2021
    I have booked a Business Class ticket for the Cat Cocos service via VIATOR's webpage as part of our honeymoon but when I have arrived with my wife to the jetty it turned out we only have Economy Class tickets. Viator did charge the Business Class price but provided an Economy Class ticket. Besides the obvious disappointment there was no automatic refund of the price difference - we had to complain and request it. The Cat Cocos ferry service was as expected. The sea was windy with large waves and many seasick people all over the place. For the sensitive the back of the ship or the front open area is recommended - although this latter does have strong headwinds.

    Thank you for your review. This issue was handled by our Jetty Hostess which she did refunded the clients for the downgrade as there is nowadays only one ferry per day due to covid-19 restrictions then the business class was full when the bookings were received. We do agreed that the sea is very rough during the period and many clients complained of being sick during the trip.
    Most people went green in faces 10 minutes from departure

    It was very rough on the sea during our transfer from Mahe to Praslin, so both wife and I got sea sickness in no time. The crew was very professional and helped as much as they could but boat speed was never decreased. I guess that's because they have tight schedules. The low score is mostly due to one of our suitcase being completely wet when we picked it up. It looks like it was pushed to some inner part of the boat where sea water was penetrating

    Thank you for your review. It is correct that the sea is very rough during the month of July and we will share your review with Inter Island boats, the ferry company on the boat speed and wet suitcase. Regards,
    Fast ferry (don’t eat before your trip)

    It was fast ferry for unknown reasons. I felt sick and thrown up during the trip! The ferry dismissed the enjoyment factor on the trip!
    icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
    Thank you for your review. Do take note that during the months - July to September 2021, the sea conditions are rough so maybe this is why you felt sick and throw up. We have taken note of your review which we will share with the ferry company.
    No social distancing, not enough ventilation
    , Jul 2021
    We were off to a good start Indeed, the boarding and bag check process is well organized, and the staff is very friendly. However, the trip itself was some kind of a nightmare with absolutely no respect of social distancing, at least in the economy section. All seats were full ! On top of this, there was very little ventilation, just a quite weak AC. The outside section could have been used for passengers, or at least the door could have been kept open, but remained closed for the whole trip i.e 1h15. Finally, sea sickness being what it is, many people had to remove their masks in order to breathe and throw out. There again, it was up to 1 or 2 friendly staff to bring the bags to people in pain, and ask them to take away their mask to keep breathing...

    Good afternoon, thank you for your review which we will surely share this with the ferry company inter island boats (cat coco) regarding the points raised. We will get back to you once we received a feedback from their side. Thank you & regards,

    Nous nous sommes trompés De destination dû au site vraiment mal indiqué au lieu de mettre mahe praslin nous avons mis pralin mahe. Le dimanche à notre arrivée de l aéroport nous nous sommes rendu compte qu il n y avait nous avons du trouver en urgence un logement alors que nous étions 5 dont 3 enfants. Le lendemain nous étions au port à 6h30 du matin Après avoir était extrêmement mal reçu par la personne de vision voyage, nous avons dû finalement repayer des billets pour 5 personnes en plus de la chambre et du taxi. Cette erreur nous a couté 400euros en plus du stress engendrer. Tout ça pour s entendre dire : " de toute façon ça arrive tous les jours de se tromper et la compagnie ne rembourse jamais. " Il faut peut-être se poser la question de pourquoi et surtout commercialement quand on voit Le remplissage des bateaux, un geste commercial ne les auraient pas fait boiter! Heureusement que nous avons rencontré de seychellois vraiment sympa pour nous aider

    Merci de partager vos commentaires. Nous sommes désolés que vous ayez eu une mauvaise expérience lors de votre séjour aux Seychelles. De notre côté, Nous ferons le nécessaire pour trouver une solution vers le service client au Bureau de la Jetée. En ce qui concerne la mauvaise réservation, ce n'est entièrement pas la faute de la Vision Voyages DMC car nous avons fait tout notre possible en fonction de votre réservation. Notez que Viator envoie immédiatement un billet automatique une fois que vous avez effectué la réservation, donc la faute était entièrement de votre part de ne pas avoir remarqué que vous aviez fait la mauvaise réservation. La compagnie de ferry Cat Cocos a pour politique qu'une fois le billet confirmé, vous ne pouvez le modifier qu'une seule fois avant la date de départ initiale. Le bureau de Cat Cocos et notre bureau étaient fermés le dimanche après 14h00 car il n'y a plus de transferts en ferry après cette heure et il est très regrettable que vous soyez venu après cette heure afin de modifier votre réservation.

    Moi qui n’est jamais eu le mal de mer, je comprends mieux ceux qui l’on. Un enfer qui dure une heure! Les gens vomissent de partout dans des pochons que le personnel donne.

    Bonjour Nous avons réserver le ferry Mahé Praslin avec la société Viator. Nous sommes scandaliser de comment ils ont traiter notre dossier. Nous avons réservé 15 jours a l'avance pour le ferry de 11h00 du samedi 5 mars 2022 et avons reçu la confirmation. Le vendredi 4 mars je me connecte à internet et je tombe vers 16h00 sur un message me disant que le ferry est full pour 11h00 mais qu'il ont réussit à nous remettre sur le ferry de 14h00 sauf que nous avions 3 prestataires à prévenir pour modifier tout cela. Après 2 h00 d'appel et des frais nous avons réussit a tout mettre en place mais avons eu 1 journées compter aen plus pour la voitures. Et Viator a disparu des radars aucun geste commercial rien c'est honteux je vous recommande de jamais faire appel à eux.

    Cher Monsieur, merci pour l'avis. Nous sommes vraiment désolés que vous ayez eu une mauvaise expérience, comme notre représentant à la jetée vous l'a expliqué, la compagnie de ferry Cat Cocos ne nous a pas informés que leur bateau de 11h00 était complet jusqu'à la dernière minute, car chez Vision Voyages nous n'avons aucun contrôle sur les ferries. Nous examinons ce problème et espérons le résoudre rapidement et avec précision avec la compagnie de ferry. D'ici là, veuillez accepter nos plus sincères excuses au nom de tous.

    Bonjour, merci pour votre review. Cordialement
    Ha funcionado todo muy bien
    , Nov 2020
    Ha funcionado muy bien todo el proceso: pago, reservación y recogida del ticket. No pongo 5 estrellas porque es más caro por su página que directamente en la empresa. Pero finalmente si lo reserve por su página 2 veces porque en la otra página ya no había disponibilidad de tickets y en la vuestra si. Gracias por el servicio! La persona que nos atendió en Seychelles y nos ha proporcionado el ticket ha sido muy amable y puntual.
