We travelled with our son who is living with a disability and it was so nice to see everything just work for him. Crew were really good without being overbearing. Ferry was clean, neat and tidy. It was a great experience for the whole family.

My Dad is 89 and although his mind is sharp, his body is frail. He and my Mum did a solo voyage over to Portarlington from Melbourne, for the first time. Dad wasn’t able to traverse up the ramp with his walker and Mum sought help from the crew. You guys were brilliant! Your friendly, cheerful manner greeted Dad and you supported him up the ramp without him feeling foolish or feeble. Thank you. It’s so important to them (and me) to maintain some independence. They loved their voyage.

Great trip from Melbourne to Geelong, ferry was comfortable, clean and staff very polite and helpful and coffee was nice and reasonably priced.

However, it would be helpful if there was a sign at the Docklands gangway indicating the destination of the ferry as quite a few people attempted to board to wrong one due to the ferries leaving within 20 minutes of each other.

Also at the Geelong terminal it would be helpful if there was a sign indicating what time passengers were able to board.

Well organised Friendly staff. It was a lovely experience to ferry to Port Arlington (lovely place) and then ferry back to Docklands. Will definitely do again.

We took a ‘day trip’ on Easter weekend and had a really lovely day out! The ferry was larger than I expected, with plenty of room for everyone. The journey was smooth and enjoyable and it was great to the scenery around the bay. A very professional service.

I have travelled on several occasions backwards and forwards across the bay with Port Phillip Ferries and the service is just fabulous. The staff and operators are just wonderful. It’s so good to leave Docklands and arrive Portarlington in no time, so easy.
Thank you for a great trip. Gail

Great experience for my kids and me! Service is really good! The kids had colouring pages and pencils, the coffee and snacks on board were pretty good. We had the best time!
