Best way to get to work

Best way to get to work in Melbourne from the Bellarine. Even offers a cheeky beer for the way home in the evening.

Great Service and Staff

This ferry is my new commute to work in the city 3 days a week. I am so impressed with the service, great staff, perfectly clean, always on time and this morning after commencing departure it went back in to let a passenger running late on board. Well done PPF!!

What a way to start the day

Have used the ferry several times now a love it. What a way to start the day leaving Portarlington with the sun rising across the water. Talked to some of the work commuters who can get a lot of work done while traveling. It's not crowded like the trains. Crew are always happy and helpful.
