In line with the schedule of sailings set prior to commencing in December 2016, Sea SA will suspend the ferry service from Wallaroo to Lucky Bay for the Winter months from Thursday 1st June, resuming 22nd September 2017.
Sea SA Managing Director Stephanie Dawson, said whilest the figures were down from previous years for the same fares, the activation of grain exportation at Lucky Bay will ensure a full year service, and this is now expected in 2018.
Ms Dawson acknowledges the excellent staff teams, both ashore and on the vessel, with many of them remaining in employment with 'Se Star' and the dredging operations at Lucky Bay, together with Skeleton staff in the offices at Wallaroo and Lucky Bay.
During this time reservations for travel starting 22nd September 2017, can still be made online (and receive a discount) or by calling reservations during office hours (9am - 4pm Monday to Friday).
Our new ferry Sea Star is now at Wallaroo, undergoing final preparations for commencement of service on Friday 9th December.
The online system is now open for reservations, or phone the booking office on (08) 8823 0777 where our friendly staff are standing by to assist.
With the arrival of Sea Star at our Wallaroo Terminal, we are happy to announce that our first day of sailing will be Friday 9th December 2016 at 8am from Wallaroo.
Simone is ready to take your call and answer any questions you may have.
Sea Star has made her 24 day voyage from China to Lucky Bay arriving early this morning.
She will spend a few days at Lucky Bay before being sailed across the gulf to her home in Wallaroo.
‘We just have some tidying up, cleaning and crew training to prepare before the official start’ Sea SA managing director, Stephanie Dawson said.
Bookings for the service will commence by the end of the week.
The new 60m SeaSA Ferry “Sea Star”, designed and built by Sea Transport Corporation, has successfully completed all mandatory sea trails in China and will shortly commence the delivery voyage to South Australia.
