The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company is making changes to their January 2024 schedule due to low tides and insufficient clearance at Heysham Port.
Once again, the recent bad winter weather has led to added silting at Heysham Port. This has now coincided with low tides around scheduled arrival and departure times.
This has forced the Company to make changes to the schedule in order to comply with safety requirements as there is too little water to carry out berthing operations safely.
Peel Ports has advised that Heysham's scheduled dredging campaign will be brought forward to mitigate this problem and limit disruptions going forward.
Information about the affected sailings will be communicated to customers via text and email.
Customers are reminded that it is important to provide a mobile number and/or email address when making their booking in order to be kept informed of any changes to check-in or sailing times. Passengers with existing bookings can update the information online. If you do not have an online account it is possible to add a mobile number to your booking by contacting our reservations teams* and quoting your booking reference.
