Free transfers from Portarlington & Geelong

Although these cruises depart from and return to Docklands, the timings have been set up so residents from Portarlington or Geelong can also come over for the day. If this is the case, Port Phillip Ferries are happy to provide complimentary* return ferry travel if you have a same-day short cruise booking. To take advantage of this offer please call (03) 9514 8959 to book your short cruise first and we’ll book your corresponding return ferry ticket at the same time.

Please note the start time of the tour, and look over our regular ferry timetable, as there will be some time in between ferry arrivals, short cruise departures and the return ferry home again. We can offer the comfort of the new Melbourne Ferry Terminal during the waiting periods, however, please be aware of the schedule before taking up this offer.

* This offer is only available for those people booked on the same-day short cruise. Pre-booked tickets are essential and must be made 48 hours prior to the departure date. Tickets cannot be purchased at the ferry terminal on the day and are not valid in conjunction with any other offer.
