In case you did not all know- the Ilala is now back up and running! Kate
Thanks or the reminder Kate, timetable at https:/…20RETURN.xlsx
Note the Ilala does not now operate from Monkey Bay, actually seems to be logical (that's a first then!) as the new Southern terminus is Chipoka, which is on the main lakeshore road, whereas Monkey Bay is "out on a limb" , so is more accessible for goods.
Does the ferry run from Nkhata Bay to Likoma Island?
If not, do you have an alternative suggestion to get there?
Yes, if you look at the link in reply 1 timetable is there.
Dear Mr Ivan,
Seems like Ilala still leaves from Monkey Bay every Saturday 10AM and returns on Thursday around 9:30AM. Worth getting it rechecked. Two of my friends called the shipyard and confirmed it, sorry don't have a name as reference;

Also in another development this week Mota Engil has just taken charge of a few ports. Read more nyasatimes.com/2013/…
Thanks, keep up your valuable posts.

Hi Mushin, Thanks for the info, Seems like the "new" timetable is out of date already !.I did check that the "new" timetable was correct, and was as published, and was assured that this was so, but it was also suspected that "this might change". So it looks like this is what has happened.(if so it didn't take long).
This may seem silly but do you know if there are outlets/places to charge cameras and phones on the ferry? Thanks!
