    Ferry Service from Beacon Cove to Continue

    The St Kilda Ferry Service has decided to continue the service from Beacon Cove to Williamstown and St. Kilda. Apparently there was a pleasing response to the trial we highlighted that ran in early April.

    The service departs from the wharf adjacent to Mr Hobson restaurant. Departure times are currently 11:30am, 1:30pm, 3:30pm, and 5:30pm to Williamstown and 10:25am, 12:25pm, 2:25pm, and 4:25pm to St Kilda. The full timetable can be found here.

    Prices can be found here. Our Honorary Secretary has checked with the operator about the price for Seniors and confirmed they travel at the concession rate. For example, a return journey from Beacon Cove to Williamstown for a senior would cost $15 per person.

    If the weather is poor, potential passengers should ring 0412 320 315 or check the website to establish whether the ferry is operating.
