DO YOU dread the drive from Gladstone to Bundaberg or Agnes Water?

In coming weeks, your worries will be no more.

Australian Hovercraft Services will soon be offering a ferry service from Gladstone to Agnes Water and Bundaberg.

A return trip will run in the morning and afternoon.

"It's a regular ferry service accommodating people leaving each time of day, seven days a week," company owner Ian Brookfield said.

The service, which can accommodate 220 passengers, will provide a relaxing and enjoyable travel.

"We chose to not operate at complete full capacity, ensuring absolute comfort for the trip," Mr Brookfield said.

"My staff will ensure every trip is of the highest standard, with customer service being paramount.

"However, we must also receive strong support from the Gladstone community to ensure the viability of the service.

"I do feel that providing a high standard service will ensure local support."

"GPC and MSQ have been most helpful in outlining the requirements required to operate such services."

Standard passenger seats will cost between $80-90.

The ferry service will depart Gladstone at 7:30am for an arrival at Agnes Water of 9am, and Bundaberg 11am.

The afternoon ferry will depart Gladstone at 3:30pm, passing through Agnes Water at 5pm for an arrival at Bundaberg at 7pm.

Both ferries will have a return circuit back to Gladstone.
