Transport

By Ferry and speed boats

The number of ferries or boats making the trip between the islands and certain cities is important. Travelers have the choice between ferry and speed boat. The price is not the same and the speed either! It is important to pay close attention to the weather (can cause many delays or cancellations). Similarly, schedules change in the low season. There are many fewer boats. Conversely in high season, it is best to book tickets in advance.
