About Us

Port Phillip Ferries

Port Phillip Ferries is not just a passenger ferry service. We connect people and experiences, and we’re on a mission to transform daily travel between Melbourne and the Geelong and Bellarine regions, one cruise at a time.

Sailing 365 days a year, we offer two separate daily services between both Docklands and Portarlington; and Docklands and Geelong. Our service is enjoyed by daily commuters and leisure travellers who wish to access the coast or the city with ease.

So sit back, relax and enjoy the sights and sounds of Port Phillip Bay. There is no better way to travel, guaranteed!

Our Vessels

Our state-of-the-art, purpose-built vessels cater to all the creature comforts; friendly staff, free Wi-Fi, charging stations, toilets, tables and drop-down trays. Each ferry has comfortable seating for 400 passengers. You can choose between the upper deck, lower deck, or two outside decks for fresh air or happy snaps.

We have a licensed café onboard both vessels, so you can get your coffee fix or enjoy a cheeky beer or wine during the journey. Not to mention, we have other cold drinks and sweet and savoury snacks from the likes of Bellarine Smokehouse and Manzanillo olive grove.

Both ferries are easily accessible for all via our boarding ramps, and comfortably facilitate wheelchairs, motorised mobility scooters and prams. All are welcome to make use of the 20 (free!) on-board bike racks, too.

Our Team

Every good boat needs a good captain and a great crew, and that’s what we’ve got.

You’ll get to know them by name the more you cruise, because they all love a chat. But the fact is, they are here to help you make the most of your trip and what you can get up to at either end.

If they don’t have the answer for you they will do their best to find out. They’ll be glad to share their favourite secrets on where to eat and what to do. Most importantly, they are there to keep you safe and comfortable. Be sure to introduce yourself next time you’re on board.


Our Mascot Wendell

The Common Seadragon (also known as the Weedy Seadragon) is a marine fish closely related to the Seahorse and is the marine emblem of the Australian State of Victoria.

Wendell the Weedy Seadragon has been with us since the very beginning and has travelled with us fare and wide – a constant and loyal companion.

You’ll spy our Seadragon on the side of our boat, and on our caps, beanies and Keep Cups. You can even buy our Weedy Seadragon plush toy on board!
