MCA Survey has been re-arranged for Tuesday 22nd May.
We hope to have the vessel ready for Wednesday 24th May.
Please be advised that while our main ferry is having her essential annual survey and refit, we are using a substitute vessel.
To access the boat there are steps in to and off of the vessel. Bikes and pushchairs are welcome but will need to be carried on board.
Crew will assist if required and requested.
This is not a permanent reserve vessel but all that is available for this two week period.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
