Ferry travel

Why ferry?

Travelling by ferry gives you the freedom to stretch your legs, enjoy stunning sea views and fill your lungs with the fresh air you’ll find out on the water. It’s also an incredibly affordable option and allows you the freedom of taking your own car, meaning no hire fees, either. There are also no luggage restrictions and you can travel back from either port, no matter which one you sailed from.
