Christmas On The Ferry

As the festive season starts to creep up on us, it’s time to start planning those work and personal Christmas events. With so many great activities and experiences in all the destinations we visit, taking the ferry to your Christmas event offers a unique and fun experience without having to drive.

Book your ferry group with Port Phillip Ferries and our partners can take care of the rest at each of the ports. For contact details and to assist you with your booking please click below and complete the below group enquiry form.

Portarlington Mussel Tours

Sip, Taste and explore, while cruising in style on Port Philip Bay. All on your stunningly refurbished privately chartered vessel.

A local feast of seafood, wines and produce, a delicious way to celebrate with your group. With a maximum of 12 people, it’s a unique and exclusive way to spend time together, while appreciating the finer things in life.

Touch the mussel ropes as they’re pulled from the water and get a front row seat to the farming process, cooking demonstration and a delicious seafood lunch. Watch Lance shuck his locally grown Angasi oysters, before tasting them 3 ways.

Portarlington Grand Hotel

The Grand Hotel has multiple dining areas serving a range of delicious pub style food with an open air beer garden if you just want a relaxing drink.

Only a short walk from the ferry terminal in Portarlington you can choose from the relaxed Atrium area which is an open-air beer garden-style space, or the Bisto and Frount Bar areas which are equally as impressive. There’s something for everyone when you visit this recently renovated hotel, however, one thing remains consistent, and that’s the fresh local produce and the welcoming relaxed atmosphere.
