Liverpool's ferries across the Mersey could be sailing from the Isle of Man terminal following the sinking of a landing terminal.
River levels destabilised the boats' landing stage
Operator Merseytravel is in talks with the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company to share its terminal in Liverpool.
Mersey Ferries' cross-river services will be suspended over the weekend, although cruise services will operate between Seacombe and Woodside.
It is hoped services will resume in the early part of next week.
"We remain in close discussion with Mersey Docks and Harbour Company and the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company about shared use of the Isle of Man terminal," said Councillor Mark Dowd, chairman of Merseytravel.
"The safety of passengers must come first, so we have had to suspend Mersey Ferries' services to Liverpool again this weekend," he added.
"The normal cruise service will be running on the river from Seacombe and Woodside, but will not call at the Pier Head."
