Please be aware that should you miss your ferry, we will do our utmost to reallocate you onto another ferry to the island, however there is limited capacity and it cannot be guaranteed that there will be space on the next available ferry in peak times. If you miss the last ferry on Friday 21st August we will be able to arrange another boat for you, however this will be at an additional cost. We recommend arriving early and grabbing some food at one of the many seafront restaurants near the port.
Check-in time is dependent on your allotted ferry time which will be confirmed after purchasing your package.
