Coronavirus Update | Ferry Service Announcement

To our loyal ferry friends and supporters,

Based on government advice, and the safety of our community, we are regrettably suspending ALL ferry services between Portarlington, Geelong and Docklands, effective Monday 30 March 2020. For our new and growing business, this has been an incredibly hard decision to make.

Port Phillip Ferries love creating connections between people and places and building new relationships each and every day. We are so proud to provide ferry travel that offers a safe and reliable transport option for many Victorians and visitors to our state.

To our very loyal regular commuters, our team will miss your smiling faces, your genuine warmth with our staff, and we cannot wait to see you again on the back deck enjoying each other’s company.

We acknowledge our incredible partners, who have supported us in providing this world class ferry service. Most of our partner businesses are also hurting financially and we send our thoughts and concerns to them and their employees.

To all; be safe, be kind and when the time is right, Port Phillip Ferries will be back to continue what we started.

Kind regards

Port Phillip Ferries Management Team
