They Say…

Here’s what our passengers say

There’s no greater feeling than knowing you are making a difference in people’s lives. We are pretty chuffed with what our passengers are saying about their experience with us, that we couldn’t help but brag a little

Relaxed trip to the city.
Calm waters, left on time, friendly crew.
A very relaxing way to go to meetings. Arrived 8.35am/breakfasts/appointments. Then off to lunch. Shopping then back to Portarlington.
No traffic to deal with. No parking to pay for in city. Free tram zone! Saved a fortune and no stress.

This is such a terrific way to go to Melbourne. No traffic or seating issues as there is plenty of room on board. I have been twice now, both on the weekend & the staff are lovely. Now there is a little cafe on board that has lovely coffee & food. Well done port Phillip ferries.

Great Day Out.
Saw Port Phillip Ferries advertised on tv a while ago & thought I’m going to give this a go. I went with a friend of mine & we had the best day. The trip is so relaxing & the staff are very pleasant indeed. The ferry itself is completely clean. Even though the ferry seats 400 people there is plenty of room to move around. Highly recommend this trip. Can’t wait to go again.

Just arrived back at Portarlington after a trip to Melbourne yesterday and a night in the suburbs babysitting my grandchildren. No more traffic snarls on the Ring Road for me. Just a short walk from the ferry to an 86 tram- that drops me about 20 minutes from anyone I’d be visiting! You could take yourself any direction in Melbourne from the free trams that choof past and head to the CBD. Hope more people realise what a relaxing way to travel this is. Thanks for the lovely cafe at Docklands while we wait for the ferry.

What a way to go to Melbourne not having to battle the traffic through Geelong or Melbourne, hoping there are no delays or where to park the car. Once there all the trams in the city are free. We went to a show at Rod Laver and it was so easy. Can’t wait to go again, hoping to take the bikes for the day and meet friends. Will be going for a shopping trip or two to Docklands. Great way to go, comfortable and relaxing. Thanks to all Port Phillip Ferries.
