How often do ferries leave Nice for Ajaccio in August? Any idea of days and times? (for 2005)
Try also: www.corsicaferries.com They have ferries to Nice & Toulon in France and to Savona & Livorno in Italy. Enjoy your stay in Corsica

and hit the 'Getting there' button. This page has links to all of the main ferry operators.
Last year (2005) SNCM were on strike for about 3 weeks and it caused absolute chaos, so I would definitely go for Corsica Ferries.
