New Ferry Service for Dominica

A new ferry service began coming to Dominica this month. On October 13th, SAS JEANS Fast Ferry Service (a subsidiary of SAS L’Express des Iles) made its first trip to the Cabrits Cruise Ship Berth in Portsmouth, Dominica.

The Ferry, HSC Liberty,  travels from Pointe-a-Pitre Guadeloupe to Portsmouth, Dominica on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.new Ferry Service for Dominica

  • Depart Dominica:  10:15 hrs on Tuesdays, Fridays & 14:15 hrs on Sundays
