The Access Division, under the portfolio of the Office of the Premier, has announced a change to the departure time for the Sunday, August 11 ferry service from Antigua to Montserrat.
The ferry will depart Antigua for Montserrat at 7:00p.m. on Sunday evening and not at 10:00a.m. as was previously advertised.
A special offer had been available for Montserrat residents to travel to Antigua on the ferry and attend the Buju Banton concert Long Road to Freedom. The Access Coordinator, Ashley Lindsey explained that on Saturday August 10, the ferry service was due to be hired by a private promotional company, however he said “the company has indicated that their numbers are not as fruitful as they would have hoped.”
As a result, the Access Division has decided to stick with the 11:00a.m. departure time for Saturday August 10, as was previously advertised, but the Ferry will return on Sunday evening at the normal time of 7:00p.m.
Customers will be able to book as normal for all services.
The Access Division apologises for any inconvenience caused.
