Its reliable fleet, Ben-my-Chree and Manannan, offer spacious lounges, on-board shopping, a selection of hot and cold food, and when travelling on fast craft Manannan you can sit back and relax in one of two cinema lounges. When you’re done inside you can make your way to the outside deck, take in the views and look out for sea life. There is plenty to enjoy as you sail to the Isle of Man.
At just 33 miles long and 13 miles wide the Isle of Man may be small, but this perfectly formed island nestled in the Irish Sea offers a world of opportunities for every type of traveller. There are so many reasons to visit, from the glorious mile-upon-mile of coastline and unspoilt beaches to the breathtaking countryside and unique heritage. The island is a destination rich in culture, sport, wildlife and history just waiting to be explored, with castles nestling close to picturesque fishing ports and steam trains travelling through spectacular scenery.
As the oldest continually operating passenger shipping company in the world having begun operations in 1830, the Steam Packet Company is proud to be the Isle of Man’s only dedicated ferry operator.
