ACCESS DIVISION IMPLEMENTS CHANGES TO FERRY OPERATIONS

Friday, January 26, 2018 – The Access Division has implemented a number of changes to the operations of the Ferry Service.

 

FerryEffective immediately, the Ferry Day Tour service between Montserrat and Antigua on Thursdays has been changed to Fridays.  The Division also stated that the departure time for the day tour service has also changed.  The service will now leave Montserrat at 6:00a.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays, and will also leave at that time for the ‘Saturday Special Service’ during the March period.

 

Another new measure implemented on the Ferry Service is the provision of internet access.  Ferry Travelers are now being provided with free WIFI service during their journeys between Montserrat and Antigua.  Access Coordinator, Ashley Lindsey said, “This is all part of the division’s efforts to improve the standard of the service for our clients and we will continue to look at ways to meet the needs of the traveling public.”

 

To ensure the public is aware of the Ferry operating times, the Access Division has published an updated Ferry Schedule online.  Mr. Lindsey said, “Customers will be able to book right up to September 2018 on the online booking system.   We would like to encourage our customers to book in advance where possible as this will assist in making their journeys seamless.”

 

The schedules and special services can be viewed at www.visitmontserrat.com  and individuals can book their ferry journey at www.ferry.ms .   Travelers are however reminded that check in begins 90 minutes before departure on all services.
