Why has the ferry left before the timetabled departure time?


Once all safety checks and procedures are completed by the crew and all passengers, who have arrived for check in on time, are onboard, the Master is permitted to depart ahead of the advertised departure time. 

Before you travel you'll find your latest check in time on your confirmation email or our timetables. Passenger and vehicle check in times vary and can be between 5 minutes and 60 minutes before the advertised departure time.
