Do I need to wear a mask on the ferry

It is a legal requirement that you wear a face covering on public transport in the UK - this include ferries. All passengers (unless exempt for health, age or equality reasons) are required to wear a face covering on board all our vessels and whilst travelling through terminals, as per the mandatory government requirements issued below.

  • You must wear a face covering when travelling on a ferry in England.
  • You must also wear a face covering at ports and terminals used by vessels providing a public transport service.
  • If you do not wear a face covering in these settings you will be breaking the law and could be fined.
  • A face covering is a covering of any type which covers your nose and mouth.
  • Face coverings are not a substitute for maintaining social distancing and good hand hygiene.
  • It is important to wash or sanitise your hands before and after touching your face covering.
  • For further information on face coverings please visit the government advice site.
