Revised Pricing Schedule
Effective 1st July 2022

Dear Customer,

Safety, reliability, and quality are our highly regarded values. To ensure we continue to deliver a service we are proud of, we reluctantly must apply necessary pricing adjustments.

Over the past years, Magnetic Island Ferries have been mindful of the impacts from the COVID pandemic. For that period, we have not increased prices, and we offered full refunds on all cancelled bookings.
As of 1st July 2022, there will be a necessary increase to some of our rates. This comes as a direct result of rising business operating costs which includes Port Lease fees, Environmental Management Charges, insurances, and labour.

The regular vehicle return online fare will increase by $6 to $222, and our walk-on passenger online fare will become $32, having an increase of $2. Multi-passes continue to be the most cost-effective option for our regular walk-on passengers.
As a family-owned company, Magnetic Island Ferries do not receive government subsidies.  However we acknowledge there is a need and expectation from our customers to provide cost-effective options, which we willingly provide.
Our Off-peak services, referred to as our ‘Seymour Sale’, potentially could reduce the cost of a regular vehicle return booking from $222.00 to $133.20.

In addition, we’re pleased to advise our concessional rate will be applicable to Australian Seniors Card Holders, Pensioner Concession Card holders, as well as specialised service personnel.

Your continued support and understanding are appreciated.

Should you have any concerns, or would like further information, please get in contact with me directly.

Thank you,
Angus Campbell
