With much of the debate still raging even after TMR suggestions from over a year ago, to plan early in respect of the debate that continued to be aired then regarding how and what the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations are being considered, this year there is expected to be more visitors that the population of Montserrat which stands at just around 5,000.

With no changes in our plans for increasing access to Montserrat by air, the Access Division has announced through promotions mainly the festival organisers that as many as three ferries will be ushered into operations for the arrival of visiting Montserrat and tourists from neighbouring islands and elsewhere.

But there is a problem. Sources are predicting high seas affecting the islands including Montserrat which is very susceptible to curtail and interrupt ferry docking at Little Bay.

Already since the beginning of February, there has had to cancel the ferry schedule of operations into Little Bay port. Last week there no operations for most of the week, and late this week the problem is surfacing with the reports of even higher seas likely.

Of course, there probably remains landing possibilities at Port Plymouth. No word as people have begun arriving, the last number reported on arrivals by ferry being over 60 at one landing.
