Harbour Ferry Felixstowe

The only ferry service connecting Essex and Suffolk with stunning views of the biggest container ships in the world.


Enjoy your trip on our ferry, for a thoroughly fun experience for children and adults alike. The ferry crossings are between 5-15 minutes or you can opt for a round trip that takes approx an hour.

The boat is open at the front and back, with an inside area under the wheelhouse. All areas have seating. Children always prefer to sit up front, so they can feel like they are riding the waves. Keep your eyes peeled because it is often possible to see seals or porpoise popping their heads or fins up.

Why not combine the ferry ride with an ice cream and crabbing on Harwich Pier or visit to Landguard Fort Museum at Felixstowe departure point. Alternatively explore Shotley’s best wildlife walking routes.

Bikes and dogs welcome aboard.

Online booking through the website or card/cash payments on board.
