A New Era of Sustainable Travel

A seachange is coming to coastal travel. We believe in a future where the loud, dirty and slow diesel experiences for ferry passengers is a thing of the past. And we’re giving you a better option than a cramped and bumpy flight. Seachange brings a zero-emission option to coastal transit, allowing you and your vehicle to travel in comfort and enjoy a positive, emission-free experience.

At Seachange, we’re transforming ocean transit with electric hydrofoiling ferries for cars and passengers. Thanks to advances in strong, lightweight materials and new battery technology, our zero-emission vessels are able to offer a level of fast, convenient and comfortable ocean transit that’s been impossible until now.
