Ferry from Bodo to Moskenes

I plan to go to Bodo on July 2013 and take a ferry to Moskenes. I found a ferry timetable from the website (www.torghatten-nord.no/english/default.aspx) but feel confuse about the schedule, hope someone can help me about this problem.

From my understanding, in July there are ferry from Bodo to Moskenes only twice a day (at 6.00 and 15.00), right? Other ferry is from Landegode and Vaeroy to Moskenes and not stop at Bodo, right?

And ferry back from Moskenes to Bodo is on 10.30 and 19.30, right?

Thank you so much for kindness suggestion.

"Landegode", "Værøy" and "Bodø" in the time table are the names of the vessels. There are 6 daily departures from Bodø to Moskenes.

Thank you so much iverh and klimaflyktnin.

I plan to get a night train from Trondheim to Bodo, arriving time is about 9.13, Is there enough time to buy the ticket and catch the ferry at 10.15 to Moskenes? Is it's need to purchase advance ticket?

How far from train station and ferry dock to Moskenes?

Thank you so much.

The ferry dock is right next to the train station: http://goo.gl/maps/Bvshi

1h is plenty of time, there is no reason to buy tickets in advance if you don't have a car.

Foot passengers need to be present for registration 45 minutes before departure. It is unusual for a ferry, but I suppose it is due to transport regulations. It is a long passage and they are required to have a passenger list.

From the timetable:

"Passasjerregistrering: Oppmøte senest 45 min. før avgang"

Thank you so much klimaflyktning, so it seem like I must catch a ferry at 3 pm because of this rule? It's really bad ,waiting hours is too long.

Even with the 45min. rule you have enough time to catch the ferry at 10:15 if your train arrives at 9:13. You can buy the ticket on board, no reason to book in advance. And I don't think you will be rejected if you arrive a little bit late.

You have time - I even think this ferry is meant to correspond with the train.
