Pick up service was just on time, but afterwards we had more then an 1,5 hours at the pier till the boat departures. But I prefer to be there early, then to have a stressful experience. So I give 5 stars.

Trip was great but confusion with unloading of luggage could have been avoided if it was all unloaded prior to letting passengers out.

Too much time in advance which led us to unnecessary waiting time. 10:30 schedule departure time from hotel. We were 10:00 am already ready as recommended. However, 11am the bus took us from hotel. 11:30 we arrived to the port. Check in to the catamaran was 12:15 pm. Departure 12:30pm. In my opinion it was not necessary to be so cautious to let us be ready at 10am when departure from hotel was 11am (schedule departure time was 10:30 am though, so half an hour later than planned which let us worrying about the the ride at all)

Great but althought I booked and paid my ticket online, I had to queue to get my paper-ticket.

Great service. Took an airport taxi to the dock. Checked in. Ferry departed shortly thereafter. Some late comers struggled to find a seat but they have spare plastic stool on board. The seats are not comfortable for a long crossing but it’s an inter island ferry - exactly as I expected. The advertised 2.5 hour journey took more like 3 hours but, again, I was prepared for it to run late or be slow. Sea crossings depend on various factors (E.g. weather). Arrived safely and luggage was intact and offloaded before we disembarked. Delighted.
