Tuticorin-Colombo ferry

Hi all, sorry to dredge up the same old question, but, is the Tuticorin-Colombo ferry still out of service?

Our dates = mid December 2013.

Many thanks, Penelope.

Hi Penelope,

Yes and expected to never return. Talaimannar to Rameshwaram has more commercial potential as it's 2-3 hours only as opposed to 7-8 hours, but opening maybe 2015 due to war damage repair on Lankan side.

All the best,
