Larger vessels such as cruise liners can anchor just outside the harbour entrance and land passengers via tender to our modern and secure pontoons in the heart of the village.
A regular CalMac ferry service runs from Tarbert to Portavadie throughout the year and to Arran during the winter months.
Waverley is the last sea-going paddle steamer in the world. Every summer, she stops at East Pier in Tarbert on a weekly basis, allowing passengers to come ashore and explore the village, while others aboard to cruise Loch Fyne for a few hours.
