Looking for something different to entertain the kids these school holidays? How about an adventure across the bay on a fast ferry to either Geelong, Portarlington or Docklands?

Transforming daily travel between Melbourne and the Geelong and Bellarine regions, Port Phillip Ferries is a 400 seat catamaran that offers several return trips daily between these locations.

Offering two separate daily services between Portarlington and Docklands (70 minutes); and Geelong and Docklands (90 minutes), the ferry is ideal for a relaxed way to travel to Melbourne from the coast, or a regional adventure on Melbourne’s doorstep.

Both purpose-built vessels cater to all the creature comforts. Think on-board licensed cafe, barista-made coffee, free Wi-Fi, bike racks, charging stations and endless scenic views. Each service is accessible for all via boarding ramps, and comfortably facilitates wheelchairs, motorised mobility scooters and prams.

With so many great family activities available in these destinations, it’s a day that will entertain both kids and adults and one that you’ll all want to do more than once – especially when the kiddies can travel free, thanks to the school holiday promotion on offer.

Children aged from four to 16 can jump on the ferry (with their parents or guardians) free of charge starting from Saturday 17 September 2022. This offer will be available right across the school holidays until Sunday 2 October 2022 so there’s plenty of time to jump on board and have an adventure with the whole family.

To receive this offer simply type PPFKidsFree into the promo code field under your children’s name in the booking system.

Gather your captain and crew, it’s time to set sail on an adventure across the bay.
