A new ferry dock in St George’s is nearing completion, but ferry service to Hunter’s Wharf will not begin until Wednesday.

The construction of a new ferry dock began last year in advance of increased cruise ship service to the town this summer.

While the summer ferry schedule is set to come into effect on Monday, summer service to St George’s will begin two days late.

A government spokesman said: “The new ferry dock at Hunter’s Wharf was required because the cruise ships will be using the renovated Penno’s Wharf, which was previously used by the Bermuda Ferry Service.

“The Orange Route Service from Dockyard to Hunter’s Wharf will not commence until Wednesday 26 April.”
