Ferry from Zanzibar to Dar Es Salam

Postby baga_azul » Wed May 08, 2013 10:09 am

Hi,

I am doing a tour ending in Zanzibar and my flight goes from Dar Es Salam in the evening. Do you know which companies have reliable ferries and what is their timetable?

Thanks!

I can't help with the ferry schedule, but I travelled from Zanzibar to Dar es salaam a few years ago. I left Zanzibar in the late morning and had lots time to ferry and take a taxi to the airport for my evening flight. I just bought my ticket in advance from the ferry terminal a few days before I was leaving, although people were buying when they showed up that day. Try to get a first class section ticket if you value personal space unless you're on a tight budget. I didn't and regretted it.

I believe the ferry is ~ 2.5 hours. Be sure to buy a ticket beforehand as I saw people still waiting in line to buy tickets when the ferry left...
