Forget the freeway! Step aboard a ferry and take the scenic route from Sorrento to Queenscliff, with spectacular views and frolicking dolphins.

The Queenscliff Sorrento Ferry Service runs every day on the hour, between 7am and 6pm and is a convenient, green and interesting way to travel.

Tickets are $10 per adult one way, with cheaper fares for children and pensioners. Bikes, cars, caravans, trailers and trucks are welcome with different fares depending on the vehicle, driver and passengers.

Like any public transport, the ferry can be a bit malodorous, and it's the last place you want to have lunch (try the cafe at the Queenscliff terminal) but up on the decks the sea breeze is fresh and the coastline panorama is stunning, along with sightings of cargo ships, and if you're lucky, a pod of dolphins.

It's wonderful to see that the ferries are still in operation for the Queenscliff to Sorrento route. It has been quite a long time since I sailed that way, but one thing I remember was that I didn't get sea sick (fortunately). Perhaps the boat ride wasn't long enough to induce such a horrid condition. I was so young at the time that such an experience could very well keep me away from all types of ferries, boats and ships. The ferry I took vibrated a lot because we were sitting on top of the engines.
