Check-In opens at 3pm on our Hull to Rotterdam route, with embarkation beginning at 5pm.

Check-In closes 90 minutes before departure time for all.

You must ensure you arrive BEFORE these cut off times. 

Please be advised these are the latest times you can arrive at Check-In AFTER security. Therefore, we encourage you to allow for plenty of time to pass through security checks and allow for busy traffic during peak periods.

Before leaving for the port, please make sure that you’ve checked out our port page for directions and leave yourself plenty of time to pass through security to Check-In, as the port area can get busy during peak times.

When you arrive at the port our friendly staff will be on hand to direct you to where you need to go, get you checked in and direct you onto the ship once boarding commences.

Straps (tightened with a ratchet) are provided on the relevant deck where you will be parked.

Please make sure you have a look at what area you’re parked in, as each deck zone has been allocated a colour, this will help you find your way back to the vehicle at the end of the crossing.

An announcement will be made when you need to return to your vehicle. When you get back to your motorbike, please don’t turn your engine on until you’re asked to do so. Our friendly staff members will then direct you off the ship where you will be all set to start discovering Northern Ireland.

When travelling with a motorbike getting the ferry to Larne is both convenient and quick. The crossing takes two hours and Larne port is well connected to Northern Ireland, meaning you could be in Belfast in half an hour.
