What is the regulation on bringing an assistance dog on board?
While we are typically unable to allow pets in the passenger lounges, recognised assistance dogs are carried free of charge on all of our ferries, and are permitted to travel in the passenger lounges and public areas. They just need to be on a lead or harness.
An assistance dog is one which has been specifically trained to assist a disabled person and certified by an organisation that is a full member of Assistance Dogs International (ADI) or International Guide Dog Federation (IGDF).
Emotional support dogs that are not recognised as assistance dogs by the above organisations are not allowed to travel in the public areas. In this case, please book your dog to travel as a domestic pet.
