There is disabled parking at both terminals. Sorrento passengers please note that access to the foot passenger terminal is near the end of the pier.
At the Ticket Window please identify that you require assistance. Foot passengers board via the Car Deck which has a lift to the Lounge Deck.
If you require assistance to embark/disembarkation Searoad Ferries has a wheelchair available at both Sorrento and Queenscliff Terminals. Staff will assist passengers to/from the foot passenger ticket office and to/from the ferry lift.
Take the lift from the Lounge Deck to the car deck and wait at the lift until all cars have disembarked. Once the deck is clear please follow crew instructions for departure or ask for assistance.
Please note during the peak summer period from 26 December to mid January Searoad Ferries runs an additional ferry service in conjunction with our standard ferry services. This is a small ferry – the Peninsula Princess. This ferry is not suitable for passengers with special needs.
The bay is home to various wildlife including seals, gannets, dolphins and migratory whales. Victoria's unique bottlenose dolphins are permanent residents of Port Phillip Bay and can be spotted from the vessel often putting on a show! During winter Humpback and Southern Right whales visit the Bay as they migrate down the coast.
