Taking a motorcycle on board a ferry is often very
reasonable, many ferry operators, charge any pillion as a foot passenger, and a
separate fee for bike and rider.
Travelling by ferry can be a relaxing break on your journey,
you are likely to need to check in around 45 minutes prior to departure.
The motorcycle parking bays are usually at the sides of
the ship. There are usually special anchoring points. You will be asked to
put your bike in gear.
The loaders will likely provide foam or padding to place
underneath any securing ropes. Heavy duty cargo straps or ratchet straps are
generally used to secure your bike in place.
Be careful riding on and off board. If the decks are wet, they
can be slippery and your motorcycle will likely be carrying a lot of extra
weight. So take your time and don't feel under any pressure to get off quicker
than you feel is safe to do so.Information & Advice
