Before travelling I was sceptical about taking a bike on board a ship having heard so many horror stories, but the facilities in place with a wheel chock and proper bike straps put my mind at ease instantly, friendly staff, on time departure and arrival despite the poor weather. Couldn't ask for a better service.Read More Read Less

Douglas to Heysham sailing durations and frequency may vary from season to season, and from month to month, so we’d advise doing a live check to get the most up to date information.
The town of Douglas is one of the biggest towns on the Isle of Man, and is the main stopping point for all visitors to the island. With the picturesque harbour, filled with the quaint buildings and colourful architecture that makes up the town, as well as the majority of shops and restaurants that are on the island, this town is the perfect place to start exploring the Isle of Man. There are transport links to the rest of the island, including a horse drawn tram that operates along the coast, and the main ferry port is located in the harbour, with easy access to the town’s facilities.
Heysham is a small town on the coast of England, located between Morecambe and Lancaster, and is primarily known for its quaint cottages that are scattered across the town, as well as the famous flower displays that have won awards on multiple occasions. There are many historical sites here for visitors to enjoy, and whilst the ferry to the Isle of Man is the only ferry route to run through here, there is still plenty to find here, with easy access to the rest of the country, and a small ferry terminal located on the doorstep of the main town.
The ferry schedule for this ferry route has up to 13 ferries running per week, provided by 1 ferry operator, so there is not one single ferry timetable available here.

Ferry sail durations on this ferry route can take between 2 hours and 15 minutes, to 3 hours and 45 minutes, and this variation is due to numerous reasons, such as changes to the ferry route, changes made by the ferry operator, and external factors such as weather conditions at the time of sail. This means that all sail times that are given here are to be taken as estimates only, and be sure to check before you book, what your expected sail time will be.
How much the ferry to Heysham from Douglas will cost is defined by many separate aspects, such as what time of year you are travelling, which ferry route you are travelling on, which ferry operator you are travelling with, how you are travelling, and other such factors, so there are multiple ferry fares on offer here.
