Liverpool sailings on June 2 and 3 moved to Heysham


The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company requires that one return sailing on June 2nd and one return sailing on June 3rd are moved to the Heysham terminal instead of Liverpool as scheduled.

New Pier Head operator GPH have informed the company that a previously agreed usage of the landing stage on those days will prevent Manannan from using the berth.

“We have sought to reduce the inconvenience to our customers by securing as much use of the Pier Head landing stage as possible, especially during the busiest time of our year,” said Brian Thomson, Steam Packet Managing Director. “We’re grateful to GPH for their efforts to accommodate our schedule as far as possible and minimize impact on our operations.”

Manannan will continue to operate the rescheduled sailings, which will remain at the same departure times, but the crossing time will be 2.5  hours, rather than the usual 3 hours from Liverpool. Manxman will continue its regular Heysham schedule.

The reservations team will make necessary changes to travel information and contact affected passengers via email or phone.

Coaches will be laid on to take foot passengers from Liverpool to Heysham and vice versa and information about this will be provided by the reservations team. Affected passengers may also move their booking to another sailing, subject to availability.
