The ferry the MV Fjortof  will be partially owned by the Government of Antigua & Barbuda and the Government of Montserrat and operated by Twin Island Ferries Services Ltd (TIFS). It will offer service all year round commencing in the latter half of December and will provide Montserrat with two (2) daily return trips on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays (see Proposed Ferry Schedule below). On the other days the ferry will be servicing the Antigua to Barbuda route. However, additional sailings to Montserrat will be arranged as required for special events and other peak traffic periods.

Docking in Antigua for both ferry services will be at the Nevis Street Ferry Terminal which is next to Heritage Quay ferry and cruise terminal. Both ferries are each capable of accommodating at least 100 persons comfortably, as well as light cargo and passenger baggage.

The fares for the ferry service will be EC$150.00 for a one-way-trip (EC$300.00 for a return trip).
