About
The spectacular 40-minute trip on the Queenscliff Sorrento Ferry Service links Melbourne’s most magnificent coastal regions: the Bellarine Peninsula and Mornington Peninsula.Both destinations have a vast number of attractions to explore. Then, from Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula, it’s a leisurely 2-hour scenic drive to Phillip Island and the famous Penguin Parade. From Queenscliff on the Bellarine Peninsula, you’re very close to the glorious Great Ocean Road.Stroll on board as a passenger or bring your car – it’s the fast and environmentally friendly alternative to the drive of more than 200 km through the city from one peninsula to the other.All weather, hourly crossings, 7 Days…Two specially designed all-weather 60-metre ferries depart from both destinations on the hour, every hour, 7am to 6pm daily. Enjoy easy drive on/drive off facilities, spacious comfortable lounges with full-length windows, a tempting cafe and plenty of deck space.There are ever-changing sights – watch out for dolphins, whales in winter and enormous ships as you breathe incredibly fresh air.Arriving at Sorrento, you’ll have a perfect view of multi-million dollar mansions sitting atop cliffs, tiny coves filled with boats, the beautiful foreshore and old limestone buildings.Queenscliff is dominated by the fascinating 1860s Fort Queenscliff, but has many gracious old buildings including grand historic hotels and guesthouses.The specially designed all weather ferries have easy drive on/drive off facilities, no turning required.Easy and convenient.

Excellent service always
Jun. 2021 • Couples
Have used this service a few times and it is always on time and a very organised operation.
Go straight to cafe when you hop on to order drinks but even that runs fast and operates like a well oiled machine.
Highly recommend if you wish to cut out the city traffic or just a day trip to the other side of the bay.

Thank you Christine651 for the lovely review. So glad you enjoyed the food and gorgeous scenery sliding by. The High Tea on the High Seas Experience sails every Sunday, 2pm from Queenscliff and 3pm from Sorrento and is a delightful 2 hour return bay cruise. Hope to see you onboard again for another of our food and wine experiences - Brunch on the Bay or Captains Lunch. Warm regards, Leanne

Wonderful High Tea Experience
May 2021
Did the return trip High Tea on Mothers Day and it was excellent. Ample treats and provided with boxes to take home any left overs of which we had plenty because food was so generous.
The ferry trip itself was really good with great views of the beautiful homes along the coastline from Sorrento, Portsea and Flinders.
Excellent value for a different day out.
HINT get there early if you want to find a park which is free on Sundays over Winter otherwise only $1 hour

Courteous and welcoming
Apr. 2021 • Couples
We travelled this time as foot passengers for a day trip from Queenscliffe to Sorrento and back. Normally we would use the service to go from point A to point B to cut city traffic to visit family bayside. We took our two dogs this time. One was quite happy but the other terrifed. One of the men directing cars onto the parking deck took us aside and offered the use of the passenger lift saying that he didn't want us to struggle with the stairs whilst carrying dogs. On the way back he did the same noticing that I was, this time, carrying Kizashi all the way as she was trembling in fear of the rudder noises as the ferry was maintaining its position at the dock. He checked in on us later and showed us where we could get water for the dogs. So considerate and kind. Really appreciated the care. Thank you!

Thank you 700glenf for your lovely feedback and story about our caring crew. We do love our fur babies at Searoad Ferries and the crew do a wonderful job. Your review will be passed on to our Operations Manager and staff, as it is always lovely to be recognised for these moments. We do hope to see you back onboard either as foot or car travellers! All the best and regards, Leanne

Friendly staff

Always consistent. Always reliable. Staff happy to have a laugh and joke. There was a Police helicopter exercise Sorrento bound so we were all ushered off of the top deck which made for some excitement.

A day trip away.
Jan. 2021
This was the third trip I had been on, from Sorrento to Queenscliff. Found the booking was easy to do, having previously done it a couple of times, but this time done it when I got there. The staff were friendly. The boarding on and off was easy. The ferry itself was clean and tidy, with plenty of seats around for people to sit whether it is inside or outside. Enjoyed the experience of it, which I would recommend one to do at least once.

Nice way to start our trip
Mar. 2021 • Couples
We decided to drive to Blairgowrie via Queenscliff and the ferry and are glad we did. It’s a relaxing journey across and we were lucky enough to be welcomed into Sorrento by a family of dolphins swimming along side us for 5 -10 minutes! Such a treat.

Thank you Kirstthefirst for the great review. The crossing not only offers awesome views but is a very relaxing alternative to the drive around the bay. The dolphin escort is always a highlight! Hope to see you onboard again soon. Regards,
