FAQs

A bunch of questions get asked on the regular, here are some answers.

Are dogs allowed on the ferry?

Yes we allow dog onboard, however, we ask that dogs are well supervised for the comfort of our other passengers. Note some dogs are frightened by our gangplank (ramp), if this is the case the dog will need to be carried onboard.

No dogs permitted on our Sunset Penguin cruises.

Where do you depart from in St Kilda?

We depart from the St Kilda pier. At this stage the redevelopment of the pier is not affecting our operation.

You’ll find us about 50m up the pier on the righthand side. There is a ramp down to a lower landing and you will see our signs there.

What time does your Sunset Penguin cruise leave and what is the cost?

The Sunset Penguin Cruises depart 15minutes before sunset so the times change with the sunset, best to check the Sunset Penguins cruise page for dates and times

The cost is:
$60 for adults
$58 for Concessions
$35 for kids aged 4-16yrs

Kids under 4 years travel free but they still must have a booked ticket.

Can you BYO alcohol?

Yes you can, however, we ask that you consider the other guests onboard, this is not a party boat.

Yes, however you’ll need to call us to discuss how to book your carer a free ticket with a code.

What is the Williamstown transfer?

Williamstown transfer is for passengers coming from the Westside. Our vessel the Coastal Flyer lives in Williamstown so we thought what a great opportunity to give the community in the west an option to travel via ferry to the Penguin cruise.

You have the option to go across on any other schedules services on that day, grab lunch, dinner a drink, enjoy the many things St Kilda has to offer before joining us once again for the Penguin cruise.

after the penguin cruise finishes again in St Kilda the boat will return directly back to Willimstown.

The transfer fee is 50% off a normal St Kilda return fare.
