WARNING: Always make sure that the ticket you are buying is actually for the boat company that you want to travel with.

There are unfortunately a number of scams that involve selling tickets to customers on one of the reputable boat companies, but when they arrive at the harbour they discover that they are booked with one of the less reliable boat companies. The usual excuse is that the boat company the customers thought they were going to travel on was full or had a technical problem.

This scam occurs with local agents as well as with some online ticketing websites. If you are just looking for cheap reliable tickets, head over to our sister site for our best of budget carriers.

Please be aware that Gilibookings and her sister site are the only online booking portal that work directly with the boat companies, who themselves maintain the live seat availability.

Therefore the boat company you book is guaranteed to be the boat company that you will travel with.
