You're in Safe Hands
COVID-19 Safety Response:
As always, safety is the number one priority for Port Phillip Ferries. We maintain a number of measures to keep passengers safe on board.
In line with Victorian Government announcements made on 21st September 2022, fitted face masks are no longer mandatory when travelling on public transport but are instead strongly recommended following the existing indoor mask recommendations.
Face masks remain a highly effective tool to help reduce transmission and protect the most at-risk members of the community. Port Phillip Ferries will continue to make masks available for passengers that request one and will provide additional cleaning of all high-touch surfaces with disinfectant before and after each service.
Socially distanced and responsible service of alcohol is available onboard at our licensed cafe.
For further information please refer to the Victorian Government website; https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/face-masks
These measures are subject to change depending on State and Federal Government requirements surrounding COVID-19. Updates to Port Phillip Ferries operations will be available on this page and through our social media channels – Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – so be sure to follow along for all the latest news
