Port of Douglas

Land Transport and Travel To and From Port Douglas
(Douglas, Isle of Man, British Isles)

When you disembark at Douglas Port ferry terminal, you are already in the heart of the city, with the port being situated at one end of the harbour.

For those with luggage or who do not want to make the journey on foot, there are taxis waiting and a bus route supplies buses every 15 minutes, with services following a route into the city and beyond.

Travel by Bus and Shuttles

There is a regular bus service to and from Douglas from various locations around the island. The Douglas Bus Station is situated on Lord street, close to the ferry terminal, although some buses set passengers down directly at the Sea Terminal to connect with departures.

Car Hire and Road Travel

To reach the port by car, you need to approach Douglas via the A1 from the west; the A2 from the north; and the A5 from the south. The island is compact; meaning no journey to the port should take more than 45 minutes from any destination island-wide.

Car hire is available in Douglas city centre, while hire companies will be happy to meet you at the port with a vehicle. There is a choice of several reputable rental agencies on offer to choose from. The most reliable means of securing a booking at the best price is to book online, where one service offers the best deals from various companies.
