Does the Port Baikal to Listvyanka ferry run after the Circum-Baikal train arrives in March?

0 votes
I'm planning to take the Circum-Baikal railway on the 6th March from Slyudyanka to Port Baikal.  However, the only available hotel room I could find in Port Baikal is very expensive (14,000 roubles a night!) and it looks like the last ferry leaves about 3 hours before the train arrives, as there are fewer crossings in winter.  Is there any way to get to Listvyanka, where there are more accommodation options, after the train arrives?  Or is there a cheaper place to stay that I can book in advance in Port Baikal?

The last ferry in that period leaves to Listvyanka at 17-15.
