Vehicle drivers are required to drive their vehicle on board under the guidance of our ferry crew. The crew are there to assist if you require assistance with driving your car or caravan/trailer onto the ferry. Once your car is safely parked and handbrake on, our ferry crew will guide you to the closest exit door to the passenger deck areas. On arrival into port an announcement will be made regarding giving disembarkation details.

    If you are travelling with a vehicle, lock all your luggage inside the car taking only essential items to the passenger deck. For security reasons, you are not able to stay in your vehicle over the duration of your voyage and there is no access onto the vehicle deck during the voyage.

    SeaLink can provide an electric wheelchair at both ferry terminals to assist passengers with a maximum weight of 120kgs. Passengers in excess of this weight will need to provide their own wheelchair and assistance.
