“WATCH OUT this FERRY COMPANY is a MAJOR TOURIST TRAP”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

There are different companies that go back and forth between Palau and Magdalena and there are huge price differences between companies ( +/- 100%). The most expensive one is DELCOMAR.

They use malicious tricks to lure you on board:
• They have people on the quay in fluo jackets, looking like officials waving torches rushing you to get you on board.
• They take your ID card or driver license.
• They wrongly claim it’s the same price everywhere.
• Once on board, there is no way back, you pay twice the price you would pay to another company (e.g. 43 EUR 1 car two adults, vs. 22 EUR with SAREMAR)
• Staff is trained to handle protests in an arrogant way.
• Even on land they have no such thing as an official pricelist so you can consult and compare.

It’s a shame for the beautiful Magdalena island, it’s a shame for the wonderful people of Sardinia.

My advice is: "Buy your tickets on land in Palau at the ticket booth and take the SAREMAR ferry."
