About
Spirit of Tasmania is one of Australia’s most iconic travel experiences, operating sailings across Bass Strait between Melbourne and Devonport on Tasmania’s north coast. Spirit of Tasmania provides travellers with flexibility and convenience when planning a holiday. Our twin ships depart from both ports at 7.30pm and arrive the following morning at 6.00am. During peak season, we also operate day sailings departing from each port at 9.00am and arriving the same day at 6.00pm. On board, you can experience spectacular views, delicious food, great entertainment, relaxation and so much more! Experience the allure of sea travel. It’s fun, relaxing and stress-free. Simply drive on board for a holiday where half the fun is getting there. Embrace the ocean views, stroll the decks and breathe in the sea breeze - there’s nothing quite like it!

Brilliant organisation under testing conditions
Sep. 2021
Driving to Tassie from WA via South Australia during a critical Covid time. We made our last stop in SA at Bordertown. From then on, the "Spirit" organisation absolutely shone. Due to service disruption our booking / sailing was changed. Notification was immediate and full of good info enabling a quick return to SA in time to avoid quarantine.
Boarding formalities were excellent and once on board every possible courtesy and service was given in the nicest possible manner.
Outstanding during stressful and difficult times.
Well done

So Amazing!

WOW! The ferry is so awesome, and at a AMAZING PRICE! I have been on this ferry so many times, and I have never left unhappy. The only down is the wifi(which makes sense, because lots of people will be using it)

Spirt's on Board.
Jun. 2021
We traveled 900km from Adelaide to join the voyage to Devenport on the "Spirt of Tasmania" looking forward to a relaxing voyage & decent meal & drinks, only to find our nightmare voyage was unfolding, we negotiated the pandemic protocol's & security & boarded along with approx 1,000 other HGV's , RUV's , cars , bike's squeezed our way to the upper decks & told we had to stay in our cabins for the duration of the voyage felt sorry for the families with children that would have been hard to keep them quiet? they issued us a food bag? we certainly did not pay for this (inmates in jail get better conditions) we asked for coffee by the time we got it it was cold!! there is absolutely nothing about this trip that u could say you want to remember the so-called crew we saw was certainly not friendly one guy asked what I was doing out of my cabin "get some fresh air" customer service what's that??? we got through the worst voyage we don't believe anybody would seriously want to endure a nightmare stay on the spirit if we had been advised prior to the start of the trip we would not have comenced the journey,

Uncomfortable cabins & awful food
May 2021 • Friends
We have travelled twice now on the Spirit of Tasmania and both times it’s been a letdown. The food on board was terrible and drinks very overpriced. Highly recommend that you bring your own food. We travelled on the night sail, we had a cabin for 4 which was tiny and uncomfortable. The loading was efficient but we had to wait 1.5 hours in our car to disembark in Devonport due to Covid checks (totally understand this is necessary at the moment). It’s a great way to travel if you want the convenience of your own car, but otherwise definitely fly!

Road Trip To Tasmania

Well it was not the best crossing. Bad weather in Melbourne stopped us from sailing from Port Melbourne and covid restrictions confined us to our cabins.
Woke up in the morning still at dock in Melbourne and still locked up in our cabins.
They let us out and gave us free breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We got to Tassie a little late the we would like, not the crews fault the did every thing they could.
Loading in Melbourne was easy and unloading in Devonport was smooth just has to get through Tassie security for covid.

An interesting place
May 2021
We continued our drive and decided to stop in Devonport at the waterside dock area to see the Car Ferries / Spirit of Australia - that travel to / from Victoria. We were fortunate to time it when the Ferry was in port which was pretty impressive.

Absolutely spot on, the food was very well priced (lower than what you would pay on land) and top notch, staff were brilliant, heaps of room in the lounges, great berths, couldn't fault if we tried.

I go to Tasmania frequently for work. The Spirit is great and the staff do a marvellous job. I took my car over and the process was seamless.

Good service

We had a daytime crossing both ways. Covid regulations understandably added to embarking/disembarking waiting time. Staff adhered to Covid safe regulations. Cafeteria food ok, and coffee/tea from the bar ok too.

Surprising

I did an overnight crossing with my car, so got an inside cabin (nothing to see from a porthole in the dark)

This is a modern ship, well presented, and VERY clean. There is a process to board your vehicle, it will take time, so be patient. Everything came across very professional, queing, boarding passes, finding your way around etc.

Cars & bikes are strapped down to the decks once everyone is loaded. No car deck access from then to arrival.

Many lounges to have a simple to reasonable meal or just a drink. Prices were much better than expected.

Cabin was small but comfortable enough. You will always be at the mercy of the weather, but a bit of rock & roll was not enough to ruin a sleep.

Its a great service and SOOOOO much better to have your own car to drive Tassie.
