1. To begin the process of paying for Kenya Ferry Services using MPESA, you will need to dial *721# on your mobile phone. This will open up the MPESA menu, which will provide you with various options to choose from.

2. Once you have dialed *721#, choose the ‘Ferry Pass’ option from the menu. This option allows you to pay for the ferry services using MPESA.

3. After selecting the ferry pass, you will be asked to choose the route that you want to take. You can choose between Mombasa to Likoni or Likoni to Mombasa.

4. Once you have chosen your preferred route, you will be prompted to select the type of vehicle you are using. You can select from options such as cars, buses, lorries, and motorcycles. To select a car, you should enter ‘1’.

5. After selecting the vehicle type, you will be presented with a menu of different amounts to choose from, depending on whether your car is loaded, empty, or towing. At the moment, KFS charges Ksh. 120 for an empty car, Ksh. 180 for a loaded one, and Ksh. 300 for a towing vehicle.

6. Once you have selected the amount you want to pay, you will be prompted to enter your MPESA PIN. This is a security measure to ensure that only the account holder can make transactions using their MPESA account.

7. After entering your MPESA PIN, you will receive a confirmation message from both MPESA and KFS indicating that your payment has been received. The message from KFS will also contain a code that you will need to present at the ferry terminal to be allowed to board the ferry.

With your payment confirmed, you can now proceed to the ferry terminal and present the code you received from KFS to be allowed to board the ferry. It is essential to carry your confirmation message and the code for verification purposes.
