Not only plane but also have another transportation of saving more, it's passenger ships from Vung Tau go to Con Dao and vice versa when you want to travel to Con Dao. It's two passenger ships and cargo compact (can carrying motorcycles) named Con Dao 9 and Con Dao 10.
- Con Dao vessel 09 can accommodate about 238 beds, about 30 beds / cabine.
- Con Dao vessel 10 can accommodate 140 beds. Each cabine has 6 beds to 10 beds. According to subjective assessment, the ship Con Dao 10 newer and more comfortable.
However, there is a point to keep in mind when you decided to choose this transportation, that's seasickness. From April to August, go to Con Dao by ship is an enjoyable experience, but from September to March, travelling by ship will be a torment. So you should consider before choosing.
Ship departs at 5PM and about 6AM at the next morning to the Ben Dam port (Con Dao) and vice versa.
Have a small canteen with bottled or cans drinks. Feed mainly is noodles and other snacks.
From Ben Dam port to Con Son town about 12 kilometers.
- Ship operation according with plan each month and may be canceled without notice because of bad weather.
