Purchasing Ferry Tickets

My husband and I are arriving in Port of Spain on a Sunday evening (after 5 pm) and would like to take the 6:30 am ferry on Monday morning to Tobago. I read that you can purchase tickets in advance, but only in person at specific travel agencies. We have considered purchasing tickets on the morning of but read that the office doesn't open until after 7:30 am. Is it possible to purchase tickets the same day around 5:00 am? Or do we need to get to a travel agent on Sunday evening to buy tickets?

I don't think any of the Agents open at 5am.

When do you want these tickets for?

You can ask your Hotel if they can assist in purchasing the tickets for you.

It is normally possible to purchase tickets at the port ticket office before the 6.30am sailing - but to be on the safe side I would suggest calling the number given in the post above to confirm that.

I think it's unlikely you will find any of the travel agents open on a Sunday evening.
