Mersey Travel based in Liverpool commissioned OCTAVU to supply a Digital Tour Guide for the Mersey Ferry Tours operating on the river Mersey and Manchester Ship Canal. OCTAVU supplied and fitted two of the ferries, Snowdrop and Iris with hi speed portals .Information supplied by Mersey Travel was loaded onto the system allowing  passengers taking the tour to access rich content and video relating to the tour whilst on board using their own smart phone or tablet, no internet connectivity is needed and access uses no data. The service is offered free to all passengers taking the tour. Other attractions owned and managed by Mersey Travel are also promoted on the OCTAVU Mersey Ferry Tour Guide.
