Pricing Schedule commencing 1st July 2023

Dear Valued Customer,

We greatly value the pillars of safety, reliability, and quality that define our services. To maintain the high standards that we take pride in, and what our customers have come to expect, we regretfully find it necessary to make certain adjustments to our pricing.

Effective from July 1st, 2023, there will be a required increase in some of our rates. This adjustment directly stems from escalating operational expenses such as Port Lease fees, Environmental Management Charges, insurance premiums, and labour costs.
Please refer to the Pricing buttons above for downloadable .pdf files.

As a family-owned company, Magnetic Island Ferries does not receive government subsidies. However, we acknowledge the need and expectation from our customers for affordable options, which we are committed to providing.

We are pleased to announce the continuation of our “Seymour Services” for off-peak travel fares. This exclusive offer can reduce the cost of a regular sized vehicle by up to 25%.

Furthermore, we are pleased to extend our concessional rates to Australian Seniors Card Holders, Pensioner Concession Card holders, as well as specialised service personnel.

We sincerely appreciate your continued support and understanding during this time of adjustment. If you have any concerns or require further information, please do not hesitate to contact me directly.

Thank you,

Paul Norton, General Manager
