Summer Ferry Schedule Starts On May 1st

April 28, 2023 | 2 Comments

The Department of Marine and Ports Services summer ferry schedule will commence on Monday, 1 May 2023.

A Government spokesperson said, “As the summer months get underway, the Department reminds the public that the ferry service remains a viable option for public transportation.”

Minister of Transport Wayne Furbert said, “Marine Port and Services ferries are an efficient, cost-effective and scenic way to travel throughout the island. The funding allocated in 2023/24 for the new schedule will continue to provide passengers with increased travel flexibility during the week and weekends.

“With over 200 cruise calls scheduled for this year, the Department has increased services and staffing to provide an efficient ferry service for visitors and residents. The Orange Route [St. George’s] will operate on days when cruise ships are in port overnight at Dockyard.

“This year, we anticipate an additional 32,000 passengers will use the ferries to visit the town of St. George. This is an estimated 45% increase in cruise passenger foot traffic to St. George from the 2022 visitor numbers. As discussed last month with St George’s area residents, the Ministry has committed to reviewing the Orange Route ridership numbers based on the demand during the season.

“The new and extended schedule for the Pink Route signifies the Department’s commitment to ensure the community receives the necessary transportation.”

    Why can’t we have a Dockyard to St.George’s ferry on a regular schedule ?

    For instance it appears to run on most Mondays, but not all! And why no ferry at all on weekends ? The ferry should not be catering to just cruise ships but also West and East end visitors accommodations as well as local residents and summer camps.

      The ferry you are referring to is restricted to catering to cruise ship passengers. It is not a Government run (or public) ferry.

      The Department of Marine and Ports does, sometimes in the summer, run a Dockyard to St. George Ferry. Perhaps you could talk to the Director of Marine and Ports about expanding that service.
