Ferries and Ferry Companies Operating
(Harwich, Essex, England, UK)

DFDS Seaways and Stena Line are the main ferry companies operating out of the Port of Harwich, providing service to Esbjerg in Denmark and to the Hook of Holland in the Netherlands.

Seasonal, local service is provided on the M/S Brightlingsea from Harwich's Ha'penny Pier to Shotley and Felixstowe, while a water taxi service is also available for these local routes.

DFDS Seaways

The Harwich-Esbjerg (Denmark) route is serviced by DFDS Seaways, connecting the UK's North Sea port with Jutland, on the west coast of Denmark. The M/S Dana Sirena, one of the newest ships in the DFDS fleet, sails this route three to four times each week in approximately 16 hours, having a capacity for 600 passengers, with 196 cabins. There are cafés, a choice of restaurants, entertainment for adults and children, and plenty of shopping options onboard.

Stena Line

Stena Line provides service to the Hook of Holland a number of times each day onboard the Stena HSS, overnight ferry ships and daytime superferries including the Stena Discovery, Stena Hollandica and Stena Brittanica. Facilities and services available onboard depend of the type of ferry, but there are typically restaurants and cafés, bars, lounges, entertainment, shops and bureaux de change. The high-speed catamarans have a capacity for 1,500 passengers and 375 cars. There are four crossings daily to the Hook of Holland, beginning at 08:45, with the high-speed service taking 3 hours, 45 minutes and the regular day ferry and overnight ferry crossing taking 6 hours, 15 minutes.

Foot Ferry and Water Taxi

The M/S Brightlingsea ferries passengers to and from Harwich and Shotley, and Harwich and Felixstowe. The service is seasonal (April to September) and trips on this newly restored, historic 152-passenger vessel are typically short. Water taxis also service the routes.
