The Ship

For over 15 years, the Betico 2 has been travelling to the Isle of Pines and the Loyalty Islands. The ship can accommodate up to 355 passengers and to a slightly lesser extent cargo and vehicles.

On the Betico 2, our customers benefit of our extensive experience in passenger transport while ensuring an optimal level of safety. Our company is ISM certified, an international safety standard that guarantees the maintenance of the ship and the level of qualification and training of our crew members.

The crew members are originally from New Caledonia, the Isle of Pines or the Loyalty Islands and are always happy to answer your questions and give you advice on your stay. You can even request a tour of the ship's bridge, provided the captain is available!

Our company strives to guarantee your comfort and peace of mind during the crossing.

You will be free to travel in any of the ship's available lounges on the main or upper deck.
