Timetables & Fares

Reopening Friday 16th April

We have implemented a new timetable for our reopening this Spring, for both our main timetable and our Aira Force shuttle service. If you plan to visit, you MUST pre-book your tickets online before 9am on your chosen date of travel. We cannot guarantee to sell tickets on the day of travel. Dogs welcome for £1. 

Due to social distancing measures, you must purchase a minimum of 2 tickets per sailing. Our 'Duo Adult Ticket' is for TWO Adults so you only need to purchase ONE of these tickets. 

You can get off our boats at Howtown but you cannot board the boats there until further notice. 

Customers will be required to wear a face covering when visiting us and the indoor saloons on our boats will be closed. Please click here to see exemptions on wearing a face covering. 

Before you purchase tickets please ensure you have picked your departure and return times (if relevant) from the timetable, watched our video and read all of our opening information. This all outlines what you can expect when you visit us.
