Isle of Man

Cruise ships usually call in Douglas, capital city of the Isle of Man, although we have also received cruise ships in Peel, Port Erin and Port St Mary. The city centre is within walking distance from the port. Tourist information and taxis are available from the Sea Terminal which has a Coffee outlet, a WTM and free Wi-Fi. The Island is situated in the middle of the Irish Sea it offers visitors a mixture of steep hills, lush valleys, green pastures, views of the omnipresent sea – and roaring motorcycles.
Motorcycles, of course, are associated with the first two weeks in June, when the Isle of Man TT race is held.
The island’s total population is around 80000. Key economic sectors include tourism, manufacturing and offshore banking.
