A popular service of ferries from Fleetwood operated from early Victorian Times. Pleasure and commercial sailings to the Douglas on the Isle of Man and Larne in Northern Ireland started with the Steamers, as long ago as the 1860s.

The last regular ferry to the Isle of Man sailed in 1961, although there were sporadic journeys after that date, up to the closure of the terminal. The container port facility on Dock Street was created in 1973 to provide a container service for goods to Larne in Northern Ireland. In 1975 it later became a roll-on-roll-off service. P&O operated a twice-daily route until Stena Line bought the route in 2004.

Fleetwood Ferry Port and passenger terminal is owned and operated by ABP and has been closed since the end of 2010 when the Stena Line service to Northern Ireland was withdrawn and the container port now stands empty and disused.
