Steam Packet changes on New Year's Day

Earlier sailings due to silt at Heysham

Don't overdo the partying this evening if you want to catch a ferry on New Year's Day.

The ongoing silt problems at Heysham mean Tuesday's 08:45 sailing from Douglas will sail at 07:30 with passengers asked to check-in no later than 06:45.

The return crossing will also depart early at 12:30 rather than the normal time of 14:15.

Tomorrow evening's crossing to the Lancashire port will be at 19:00 - 45 minutes ahead of the normal schedule.
