    1. Hi Vicki,
      If you check again the Bay Islands Ferry Timetable page, you will see the Xmas timetable at the bottom of the page.

  1. hi, I am planning to stay on Russell Isl for a few days, so I’m wondering if a return ticket means it has to be used in one day, or if the return journey can be taken on another day
    thankyou

    1. If you are coming by passenger ferry, you buy a single ticket when you travel each way. The ticket can be bought at ticket office on the mainland or on the ferry.
      if you bring your car and come by vehicle barge you can buy a return ticket and either nominate the day and time for both ways or leave the return open and confirm date and time later.

  2. Hi there, my husband and I and our kids are thinking of moving to Russell island next year. I was just wondering if there are any different prices for island residents to the mainland and also for travel between the islands. the more info you could give me the better. Thanks heaps

    1. Hi Laura, yes, island residents receive almost 20% discount taking their car on the vehicular barge (it is slightly cheaper again if you register as a Frequent Floater and book online). Also if you are moving to the island, passenger ferry travel to the mainland has become cheaper and more convenient now that we have been integrated into the Translink system. Inter-island passenger ferry travel between Russell, Macleay, Lamb and Karragarra islands is now free.

    1. Hi Celia,
      Yes, the ferry people are very generous about luggage on the ferry. The islanders are known to return from the mainland laden like camels. They are allowed to bring a whole range of goods they have purchased including pushbikes. Also pets are allowed (dogs need to be muzzled).
      At the end of the day it is at the discretion of the deckhand but personally I have never encountered anyone being refused their luggage.
      For more detailed information you can contact the ferry office directly on 07 3409 8033.
      Kind regards,
      Bryan, webmaster
