IMPORTANT INFORMATION TO NOTE WHEN ARRIVING VIA CRUISE SHIP TO BUSSELTON JETTY:
- Allow at least 1.5 HOUR to disembark the boat. When your ship arrives into the majestic Geographe Bay (Busselton), it will be required a little bit out to sea in deeper water, you will then be brought by tender from the ship to the end of the Jetty (which is 1.84km long, & a 20-30 minute journey to reach); you will then travel to shore via the jetty train (which is another 30 min journey, plus you may need to wait for the train to return, which could be up to 30 minutes.)
- Have your documentation ready. Due to capacity limitations of tenders, some vessels will prioritise disembarking passengers based on their excursion times. Please ensure you have your ticket available showing your 10.00am pick up time, to ensure you are able to disembark with enough time to meet the tour.
- Keep an eye out for your WINE FOR DUDES tour guide. The Busselton Jetty precinct is busy on the quietest days, and extremely busy on cruise ship days. Our guide will wait at the start of the Jetty holding a Wine For Dudes sign. Please also keep your phone handy, in case they need to call.
NB - Please refer to our Terms & Conditions should your ship be unable to dock due to inclement weather.
