The Isle of Man Steam Packet Company's ferry the Manannan crashed into Douglas Harbour last night.
Passengers travelling to Liverpool were facing delays after the 07:30 sailing and the 11:15 return crossings were cancelled.
The operator said the Manannan "made contact" with the quay while attempting to berth at about 22:00.
No passengers were injured, but people have expressed their annoyance via social media.
Following last night’s incident involving fast craft Manannan, staff from the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company workshop have been working on repairing the damage.
The company anticipates that this work will be completed by early this evening and, following the necessary approval by Isle of Man Ship Registry surveyors, Manannan will then operate to the following revised schedule:
Friday 18th August
Douglas to Liverpool 15.00hrs will now depart at 20.00hrs and passengers are asked to check in no later than 19.00hrs.
Liverpool to Douglas 19:15hrs will now depart at 00.30hrs Saturday 19th August and passengers are asked to check in no later than 23.00hrs Friday 18th August.
Ben-my-Chree sailings are operating as scheduled and it is anticipated that Manannan schedules will return to normal tomorrow.
In addition, freighter Clipper Ranger will be brought in to operate an extra sailing tonight, which will create space for passenger vehicles on the Ben-my-Chree’s service which departs Heysham at 02:15hrs, Saturday 19th August.
The Steam Packet Company apologises for any inconvenience caused by this rescheduling.
