Ferry schedule and prices to Martinique.

Hello fellow travelers!

My wife and will be taking our honeymoon in St. Lucia and Martinique this February and we are experiencing difficulty finding out the schedule and pricing for traveling from the Rodney Bay area on Sunday Feb. 20th and then returning to St. Lucia on Friday the 25th. We may, on the return trip, want to undock at further south then Rodney Bay since we will be staying at Jalousie that Friday evening.

If you have any advice or experience regarding hopping between these two islands by ferry, boat taxi or plane please let us know.

We are both so excited that the time for this trip has nearly arrived.

Happy travels to you all!

Try this link:

www.express-des-iles.com/formulaire-tarif.php

Can't find any that are written in English but you should be able to figure out most of it as far as booking, I would think.

Hmm, when I tried that, it looked like 133 Euros for ONE WAY [for 2 people].

At least from the best I could tell in French.

You are correct. It's 199.8 Euros round trip OR $258.50 US. I forgot to change the request to round trip. It'll be your least expensive option.

Thanks for the advice. Do you know from where it leaves? I checked the sight but did not see a port. I think there is one that leaves form the Rodney Bay area and maybe another form Castries. Does this sound correct to you? Thanks for all your help!

The express des isles ferry leaves from the port in Castries. It's the only place it docks in St. Lucia. Have a great honeymoon!!!

One last question, please. Do you know about how long it takes? One individual told me four hours while a rep. from Cox and Co. booking told me only an hour and a half. Thanks so much for the advice. It is helping a great deal.

From the web site:

FROM St.LUCIA TO:

Dimanche 20 Février FORT DE FRANCE 17h00 18h20

FROM Martinique

Vendredi 25 Février SAINTE LUCIE 13h30 14h50

So it is 1 hour 20 min.
