We are regular users of the Pentland Ferries and this trip was non different to previous crossings. A trouble free booking process, a quick procedure to enter and leave the vessel with our car. A comfortable lounge with covid seating procedures adhered to. The quickest and cheapest way to cross to Orkney. Highly recommended

Went for a trip on this large Twin hulled Boat to the Orkney Isles. Reasonably good crossing in fair weather. We boarded as foot passengers and were boarded before the vehicles which was a nice touch. We were also off the boat before the vehicles which allowed a little more time. The cost each way is £16 per person £32 return by foot.

This is my chosen means of traveling to the wonderful island of Orkney. Very simple straight forward booking, professional friendly staff and a smooth and scenic crossing taking only an hour. Alfred is now the new catamaran and is spacious, spotless and comfortable. Great choice of snacks, drinks and Costa Coffee on board. Highly recommended.

Crossed on the 5th and back on the 12th. A totally easy and professional service and would thoroughly recommend. Straighforward boarding, on time and dog friendly. All Covid safeguards in place. Stunning views for the whole crossing.

Very good service, well organised and efficient with clear guidance over Covid. Needed to change my booking which was done very quickly and easily over the phone. Toilets clean. Lots of hand sanitiser around the boat. Only criticism is of the website. Although you must provide a password it doesn't allow you to change a booking online, and phones were understandably busy due to changing restrictions. Also took me a very long time to navigate around the frustratingly unlabelled pages. Really wanted to check what time I had to be there but kept finding pages on how the boat was built or the journey. Very interesting but not what I wanted in a hurry. However, a very smooth and efficient crossing and well worth it.
