Bay Islands Passenger Ferries
In 1982, the first Government contracted ferry service commenced in the Southern Moreton Bay Islands. In 2005, the ferry service continued trading as Bay Islands Transit (BITS), joined the TransLink network in 2013, and became part of the SeaLink Travel Group in 2016.
SeaLink Bay Islands (formerly BITS) operates four eco-friendly jet boats on its 18 hour per day service which runs every day of the year. The jet boats were designed to have a low impact on the environment, particularly marine life.
The service runs between Redland Bay and Macleay, Lamb, Karragarra and Russell Islands in Southern Moreton Bay.
SeaLink Bay Islands also operates an ambulance vessel under contract to QAS which provides patient transfers to the mainland on a 24 hour a day basis.
