Spirit of Tasmania | Sailing

Spirit of Tasmania | Sailing

Two ships make up the Spirit of Tasmania fleet that sails between Victoria (Melbourne) and Tasmania (Devonport) departing at each port daily.

Spirit of Tasmania caters for all travellers, offering a range of fares and accommodation options, sailing throughout the year.

The trip on board Spirit of Tasmania to or from Tasmania takes approximately 9-11 hours. On days of single sailings, the voyage takes 11 hours. On days of double sailings, the voyage takes 9 hours.

Check-in commences 2.5 hours prior to departure and closes 45 minutes before the ship is to set sail. Remember to bring a driver's license or passport etc., as photo ID is required to check in.

Sail by day

Over summer, as well as during high-demand periods, Spirit of Tasmania operates day sailings, which depart each port (Melbourne and Devonport) at 9.00am and arrive the same day at 6.00pm.

On a Day Ticket you're free to wander the ship at your leisure and explore the many indoor areas and outside decks to your heart's content. Or for added relaxation (and a siesta) book a cabin and have your own private place to retreat to.

Enjoy lunch at TMK and a matinee movie in the new cinemas, then listen to some live music in the Terrace Lounge Bar. And the kids have got everything from face painting, Xbox consoles, play equipment and circus performers to keep them entertained for hours.

Sail by night

The Spirit of Tasmania operates night sailings, which depart each port (Melbourne and Devonport) at 9.00pm and arrive the following day at 6.00am.

There's something magical about sailing at night. It's not just the sparkling city views or the endless starry skies; it's the thrill of waking up at your destination, refreshed and ready to explore. There's plenty to do on the overnight leg.

First thing's first though: you'll want to head straight out on deck and take in the stunning cityscape of Melbourne or pristine coastline of Tassie receding into the twilit distance. Then, kick back with a glass of award-winning vino, sample some fresh Tassie produce, and even catch a late-night movie before heading back to your cabin for a cosy night's sleep.
