Cruise to the Isle of Man
No cruise itinerary that includes the Irish Sea is complete without dropping anchor in the Isle of Man.
The Isle of Man is located at the geographical centre of the British Isles, in the middle of the Irish Sea, and it’s this location that makes the Island an ideal destination port.
Numerous cruise ships are welcomed to Manx waters each year from all over the world. The vessels moor in the main harbour in the Island’s capital of Douglas or, for larger ships, in Douglas Bay.
Make sure you take advantage of one of the many shore-based excursions on offer to passengers. With short travel distances between our various attractions and activities, you will be able to enjoy a variety of what our Island has to offer during the time you have ashore.

Choose from a whistle-stop tour of the Island’s fantastic heritage attractions, unique Victorian railways or learn more about the Isle of Man’s political heritage including Tynwald – the world’s oldest continuous parliament.
And if you want to experience the freedom of travelling to the Isle of Man at your own pace, why not sail independently across the Irish Sea to Manx shores?
Sailing by yacht or pleasure craft ensures you’ll have the ability to come and go as you please – your plans only shaped by the tides and sea conditions.
You’ll find impressive marinas in Peel and Douglas which offer an excellent range of facilities or dock in one of the Island’s many bays including Port Erin in the south and Ramsey in the north.
