Does anyone know if you can turn up to the office to book on the day or does it need to be done in advance? Our boat arrives at 3pm on July 10th, 2017.

Best is to check with the Tchou Tchou train agency office on Anse Vata Beach when you arrive. All cruise ships and hotels have brochures with their contact numbers and the staff are multilingual so they will speak in English
