Combined travel on Yellow Buses and the Brownsea Island Ferry Company

Get discounted travel to Brownsea Island!

We have partnered with family-owned Brownsea Island Ferries based at Sandbanks to offer our passengers discounted travel to Brownsea Island - starting with a trip on Buster's Beach Bus! 

Catch our bright yellow open-top service to Sandbanks and then hop straight on the bright yellow ferry, making your journey easier and cheaper. Both Busters Beach Bus and the Brownsea Island Ferry run every 30 minutes during the main holiday period from 10:00 until 18:00, but please note that these prices are for travel only, and that entrance to Brownsea Island has an additional cost (unless visitors have National Trust membership).

*Family tickets are valid for up to 2 adults and 3 children travelling together

How to get your ticket

Tickets can be purchased from our Travel Shop in Bournemouth Square (opposite Boots) and can be purchased up to 7 days in advance of the day of the journey.
