New Operating Information:

We are running a revised timetable (See below).

please disregard all other published timetables.

​All tickets must be purchased from our kiosks. Tickets can no longer

be purchased aboard the vessel. (This includes locals passes.)

All tickets will be sold to specific service times (including return journeys).

Please ensure  you are at your departure point at least 15 minutes

before your departure time.

Hand sanitising stations are available.

Passengers must wear a face covering on their journey to help reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission. Face coverings include but are not restricted to, surgical face masks. These face coverings should cover the mouth and nose while allowing the wearer to breathe comfortably and can be as simple as a scarf or bandana that ties behind the head to give a snug fit. Children under the age of 3 should not wear face coverings. Children aged from 3 to 10 can wear face coverings, but they are not required to. Those aged 11+ are required to wear face coverings.
