St. Kitts to Nevis Feb ferry schedule

Has anyone taken the ferry from St. Kitts to Nevis and back recently? If so and you know the answers to these questions I'd be grateful for some extra knowledge. These questions are for the passenger ferry - not the car ferry.

-Is this website/schedule current/reliable?

discover-stkitts-nevis-beaches.com/…schedule

-Is there a ferry boat that's more reliable/better idea than others?

-Should we (or can we?) purchase ferry tickets in advance if we have a pretty good idea of when we're going to go? Especially since it's high season?

- How much in advance do you need to arrive for the ferry? 15 min? 30 min? more?

Thanks in advance

This is the best website for ferry schedules:

http://boatschedule.leytonms.com/index.php

When looking at the schedules remember that the SeaBridge is the car ferry that leaves St. Kitts from Majors Bay (25 minute drive from the airport). All others are "passenger Ferries and leave from the marina in Basseterre (10 minute from the airport). SeaBridge rarely leaves or arrives "on time".

Pick your "passenger" ferry by convenience of time of departure not by name of vessel. They generally all depart within 5 minutes of scheduled time.

You CANNOT purchase your tickets ahead of time, they must be purchased the day of travel. The ticket office for each ferry opens about 30 minute prior to scheduled departure.

Get to the very 15 to 30 minutes prior to scheduled departure.

Hope this helps.

I know that you are not asking about the Sea Bridge (car ferry) but just in case; the departures from Nevis / Sea Bridge dock are at 8:30, 10:30, 12:30, ... so half past each even hour.

Thanks for the help, I feel a little more prepared so we're not waiting a long time for a ferry or missing it!
