Searoad Ferries to Offer Victorians Free Tickets to Enjoy A Relaxing Sail

In recognition of the hard yards put in by Victorians during lockdown, Searoad Ferries will give away $1 million worth of tickets to encourage Victorians to reward themselves with a relaxing sail.

Victorians are encouraged to reward themselves with a relaxing sail across the bay and a visit to the seaside towns of Queenscliff and Sorrento by registering for a free return foot passenger ticket aboard Searoad Ferries. Victorians can pick any day, from November 23rd to travel – there are tickets for every day until 31st July 2021. 

Registration will open Wednesday 18th November and runs through until 5pm on the Sunday 22nd of November. 

With 38,484 tickets up for grabs, Searoad Ferries wants to offer Victorians the chance to enjoy the moment again – seeing a dolphin, watching the changing water, bumping into an old friend or gazing at the coastline – and feel a world away from the challenges this year has brought.

According to Searoad Ferries CEO Matt McDonald, the giveaway came from desire to get Victorians out of their homes and recapturing the beauty of Port Phillip Bay, while understanding that many have being doing it tough financially. 

“We are a family owned business and we know how hard it has been for Victorians – a free ticket, the beauty of the bay and some fresh air is something we would love Victorians to experience.

“We want them to remember how beautiful our state really is and what better way to do it than with some sea air, beautiful views and time with family and friends.” Said McDonald. 

Victorians are eligible for one free ticket per person and tickets are available to be booked for travel on each day from 23rd November 2020 to 31st July 2021.

Searoad Ferries are encouraging Victorians to pick a day, share the link with family and friends, grab their ticket and make the most of a trip on Port Phillip Bay.

Operating for over 30 years, Searoad Ferries is the iconic car and passenger ferry service sailing Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay between Sorrento and Queenscliff. Two vessels, MV Sorrento and MV Queenscliff, connect the Great Ocean Road and the Bellarine with the Mornington Peninsula, sailing the pristine waters 24 times a day, 365 days a year.

With spacious lounges encircled by full length windows and external observation decks, passengers can view the spectacular coastal scenery, admire the cliff top mansions and spot dolphins all year round.

Searoad Ferries operates under a comprehensive COVIDSAFE Plan, with strict cleaning and hygiene measures in place, contactless ticket purchase and boarding, seating placement for social distancing and plenty of outside deck space. Once passengers disembark, the coastal towns of Queenscliff and Sorrento are the perfect seaside escape. Whether it’s a spot of fishing, dining al fresco, browsing through quaint boutiques or taking a leisurely stroll along the water, visitors will have much to see and do while surrounded by the beautiful backdrops of Queenscliff and Sorrento.
