Re: Zurich Photo Club does the sunset cruise

Hopefully this will become a definite for me next week, however I'll probably go direct to Rapperswill and meet up with you guys at the boat. So don't wait around at dvinos for me.

Let's hope we don't get that floating greenhouse.

Re: Zurich Photo Club does the sunset cruise

Do we need to buy boat tickets in advance?

(Does anyone have a link to the boat company?)

The best thing is to buy a 9 o'clock pass if you don't have a ticket. This covers the whole journey and is around 25 chf. The boats are part of the integrated travel system so you don't need a seperate ticket.

Yes you can bring whatever camera you like. If you're lucky you may get your picture taken too.......

Great, thanks! I says above " RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed." so I assumed I can no longer RSVP. (and if I can, I have no idea how!)

Where do you get this "9'oclock pass"? (So I assume it's good for the train to Rapperswill and the boat ride?) Thanks for the info!
