Footy Ferries 2023

Forget the hassles of driving and parking, travel to and from the footy this year in style

Catch a fast CATamaran direct to the game

In 2022 we are continuing our partnership with the ‘Greatest Team of All’. Cruise to the footy in style aboard our new ‘Game-day Specials’ for Victorian Cats games. Whether it’s at the MCG, Marvel, or GMHBA Stadium our fast ferry service will be delivering Cats fans to the footy in style.

Jump onboard the Cats ‘Game-day Special’ and sing the club song the whole way there and back. With a fully licensed cafe on board you can enjoy a coffee and a snack on the way over, and as Billy would say ‘have a frothy’ on the way home.

20% OFF Multi-Trip Passes

Port Phillip Ferries are offering Geelong Cats Fans 20% OFF Multi-Trip Passes. This discount makes catching the ferry cheaper than taking the train and makes getting to the footy a whole lot more fun. Enter the code: Gocats21

Getting home after the game

Unfortunately, due to staff shortages, we are unable to provide a ferry back to Geelong for this week’s game. We would suggest taking the V-Line service home from Southern Cross.

Stay in the city after the game
