Is the ferry between Antigua and Montserrat fast

Is the ferry between Antigua and Montserrat fast?

Yes, the new ferry between Antigua and Montserrat is fast. In fact, it is one of the fastest that has ever existed on boat trips between the two islands. This ferry trip from Antigua to Montserrat, or vice versa, takes approximately 90 minutes. While other ferries take approximately 2 hours to make this trip. We are talking about the V2V Empress, of NAVIYUC S.A. company.

Consequently, this V2V Empress can accommodate up to 245 passengers. However, between the Montserrat government and the aforementioned company, there is an agreement to transport up to 192 passengers. There may be exceptions to this limit, but only under the authorization of this government. 

This transport service began operating on November 2nd, 2023. The vessel will sail five days a week during the low season and six days a week during the high season. The service so far will function from November 2023 to March 2024. So, before you could only go between the islands by plane or helicopter. But this new system is going to make it much easier to connect the islands, boost tourism on both, and also make it simpler to move cargo and vehicles between them. This will greatly improve accessibility and trade between the two islands.
