Ferries - information and advice

Some ferries operate all the year round on a timetable that varies with the seasons and some are services that do not operate during the winter months. Bikes can generally be carried on all ferries. On foot ferries with smaller capacities, if a large number of bikes need to be carried it is advisable to ring ahead to the operator to confirm.
