It’s official, Geelong. We’re launching on Monday 2nd December. Look out, because we’ll be changing the game for commuters and visitors one cruise at a time. We’re talking daily services between Geelong and Docklands on a brand-spanking new vessel – that comfortably sits 400 passengers.  Yeah!  But our experience is beyond just a ferry service. Think on-board licensed café, barista made coffee, FREE Wi-Fi, bike racks, charging stations, friendly staff and endless scenic views.

Whether you’re travelling to Melbs as part of your daily commute or for a day or overnight adventure, Geelong, we have you covered. So get excited. Save the date. And come cruise with us from December 2nd. 

Daily Commute

Who said the daily travel from Geelong to Melbourne had to be unpredictable… stressful… rushed… uncomfortable?  Our Geelong service is a game changer for commuters

One cruise and we know you will be converted.   A cruise to work that will leave you feeling refreshed, recharged and ready to smash your day. 

Go under the West Gate instead of over it, improve your health and reduce the stress with a ferry easy journey. There is no better way to start your day.

Daily Adventures

Melbourne just got closer (and cooler) because you can ditch the traffic lights and traffic jams and jump aboard the ferry for the cruisiest day trip to the big smoke.

Fancy a day out shopping, adventuring, a trip to the theatre, watching the footy or touring with friends?  Yep – we’ve got you.  

The ferry will be easily accessible for all via our boarding ramps, and will comfortably facilitate wheelchairs, mobility scooters and prams.  Start planning your next adventure!
