After a corona-related hiatus, Port Phillip Ferries has recommenced services to Geelong (which launched late last year) and Portarlington on the Bellarine Peninsula.
Full weekend ferry services resumed on June 13, setting sail from Victoria Harbour (opposite Marvel Stadium) in Docklands.
Expect increased public-health measures, including contactless boarding, reduced capacity, hand-sanitiser stations and thorough cleaning between services. Plus, disposable face masks and gloves will be available as you disembark.
The voyage from Melbourne to Geelong takes around 90 minutes, and Melbourne to Portarlington takes around 70 minutes. Tickets must be pre-booked ($18 one-way and $36 return for adults, and $10 one-way and $20 return for kids). There’s no word yet on when weekday services will resume.
