Back to Essential Travel

I have noticed a large number of Motorhomes travelling on your ferries. Why are you enabling them to travel. This is against government guidelines of essential travel?


Please be assured only essential travel is permitted on all of our routes. Passengers must evidence they are eligible to travel based on Government guidelines.

Island residents, key workers and our crews sometimes travel in motorhomes or with caravans for accommodation. Wednesday is typically change over day for the crews so you may notice travel of motorhomes on these days. Port staff verify that all travellers are essential. Our staff are working hard and diligently to keep the island community, staff and businesses safe in these difficult times.

Passenger numbers are down by 95% across our routes. We appreciate the patience of our customers who are following the guidelines.
