We’re Setting Sail in…

19Days 12Hours 12Minutes 31Seconds

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 Melbourne (Docklands) 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.

Buy now and book later, to save! Buy a fare between Geelong and Docklands (either way) for just $12. Enjoy a saving of $6 off our regular fares. Don’t snooze, it’s only available for on week. 

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!

Before we commence our daily Geelong to Docklands services, check out our brand-new vessel and come for a cheeky one-hour Corio Bay cruise on the weekend of the awesome Geelong Revival Motoring Festival. November 23 & 24.

With four scheduled run times over this fast-paced weekend, set your speed to cruise control for an hour and enjoy the sea breeze from the outdoor decks or take in the spectacular views from our comfy indoor seats. Visit the on board licensed café as well.

We can’t wait to see you on board and show off what’s under our bonnet.

Thoroughly enjoyed Geelong. Thank you Port Phillip Ferries! What a wonderful way to travel! No stress and so relaxing and the views amazing. Warm, cozy and comfy! Loved the café and morning coffee! The umbrellas such a thoughtful touch. Felt so spoilt! Crew and staff were amazing and so friendly and professional. Looking forward to summertime and visiting beaches. Thank you. More locations please.

Will the Geelong ferry operate every day?

Yes! The Geelong service will be sailing 365 days a year, with two services per day between Geelong and Docklands. Fun fact: every minute of the journey will be as much a part of your adventure as the destination itself.

How will seating work?

When you pre-book online (once we’re selling tickets, of course!) you will be guaranteed a seat, but not allocated a seat. It will be completely up to you where to sit; upper deck, lower deck, or on the two outside decks. Spoilt. For. Choice.
