Belaire Ferries pride ourselves on delivering a quality service with an emphasis on safety and customer satisfaction. Catching the ferry is a relaxing way to travel for regular commuters and tourists alike. In 30 minutes you can be in the CBD without the stress of traffic and in less time than it would take on the motorway.
