Does the ferry to Zanzibar run on the weekends?

I have only seen timetables saying Mon - Fri. Does the ferry to Zanzibar run on saturdays and sundays?

Ferries operate 7 days a week, unless they've recently changed. Look on the web site for the Tz Tourist Board for the schedules - tanzaniatouristboard.com/pages/ttb_ferries.p…

Karl seams to promote Tourist board in each reply,why is this?most of informations there are outdated except for Attractions.You have moved from TATO to the Board.People here need information from others because they know those board and all tourism authorities.

Details for ferries are not correct in their site.

Correction are:

Dar - Znz

Dep:07h00 Sea Express

Dep:07h15 Ms Sepideh

Dep:10h30 Seastar

Dep:13h00 Seabus

Dep:16h00 Seabus

The last time I took the fast ferry it took me 90 minutes to go from Stone Town to Dar and vice versa.

Don't be picky please, it's not comely.

Yes,Ferry run in Ramadhani.

But Time table will change during whole

ramadhani.

Changes are on Last Ferries only,which leaves less of half an hour.

Try to get an early fery or the tickets at least early. Many times they trick people to paying more and tell them they are the only ferries.
