Effective today, new cleaning / sanitising protocols have been implemented on the Ferry to assist in stopping the spread of COVID-19. In addition to the normal daily cleaning regime of the Ferry, there will be three additional 1 hour blocks of necessary sanitising conducted in the Ferry passenger cabin, and both terminal waiting buildings on Raymond Island and Paynesville. To ensure our cleaning team can conduct this sanitising efficiently whilst maintaining the recommended social distancing and personal safety, pedestrians and/or cyclists will not be able to travel on the Ferry during the following times:


0930am - 1030am

1330pm - 1430pm

1730pm - 1830pm


The LED signs have been updated advising on these protocols and we ask that all travellers respect these important measures put in place for everyone's health and well-being.
