If you’re thinking of using the ferry then please be aware that social distancing measures will be in place, so you need to plan your journey in advance and leave more time for your journey.
We’re asking customers to pay by contactless/card payments and don’t forget you can use the ticket machines at the terminals - this is to protect both you and our staff.
It’s also important practice good hygiene – avoid touching surfaces, your face, and wash your hands properly both before and after your journey.
