Cats Game Day Ferry Service

Catch a fast CATamaran direct to the game

In 2021 we have changed the game and partnered 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 direct to the game in comfort and style all year long.

Jump onboard the Cats ‘Game-day Special’ and sing the club song the whole way there and back. With a fully licensed cafe onboard you can enjoy a coffee and a hot pie 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 all Multi-Trip Passes until the end of April. 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
