Each of our ferries is equipped with its own range of facilities to make your ferry crossing comfortable.
With children's activity areas, baby changing facilities, quiet lounges and pet areas, we aim to ensure the whole family enjoy their journey with CalMac. For deck plans of large ships see our Fleet pages.
Pets are welcome on board and travel free of charge. Facilities vary from ship to ship.
Designated Pet Areas
On most of our ships pets are allowed access to all outside passenger areas. Many of our larger ships have internal pet areas with seating provided for owners. When inside, passengers travelling with pets should remain in these areas. On some ships pets are not permitted inside.
It is CalMac's aim to make journeys as safe and comfortable as possible for all our passengers. Please take due care and show consideration for everyone on board.
Support dogs are allowed access to all passenger areas.
Where special arrangements would be helpful to owners i.e. storing a pet in an RSPCA approved pet carrier or similar apparatus, provided by the owner, a location may be identified on the ship by prior arrangement with the port of departure. Owners should contact the port of departure at least seven days in advance of travel.
Our priority is to cater for every passenger to ensure your journey is a relaxing and enjoyable one. If you require special assistance boarding or whilst on board please advise us 48 hours before you travel by:
