The Vessel

We got a new boat! From January 2018 we were lucky enough to start cruising with our brand new, purpose-built ferry. It was built in Tasmania by Incat and travelled across Bass Strait to get to us.

She’s an absolute beauty. There’s 400 seats, this includes heaps of comfortable indoor seats, plus two outdoor decks. The ferry has some great features including free Wi-Fi, charging stations and drop-down trays. We love seeing all types of travellers enjoy the experience so we welcome people to use our bike racks, we have room for wheelchairs and it’s easily accessible via our boarding ramps. Passengers can enjoy the on board café, which is also licensed.

Imagine this: drink in hand, awesome views and heaps of room to stretch the legs. Now that’s travelling in style.

Our Team

Every good boat needs a good captain and a great crew, and that’s what we’ve got.

You’ll get to know them by name the more you cruise cause they all love a chat. But the fact is, they are here to help you make the most of your trip and what you can get up to at either end.

If they don’t have the answer for you they will do their best to find out. They’ll be glad to share their favourite secrets on where to eat and most importantly, they are there to keep you safe and comfortable. Introduce yourself next time you’re on board.


Our Brand Mascot- “Meet Wendell”

The common seadragon, also known as the weedy seadragon, is the marine emblem of the Australian State of Victoria. Common seadragon or weedy seadragon (Phyllopteryx taeniolatus) is a marine fish related to the seahorse.

Adult common seadragons are a reddish colour, with yellow and purple markings; they have small
leaf-like appendages that resemble kelp fronds providing camouflage and a number of short spines
for protection. Common seadragons can reach 45 cm in length.

You’ll spy our seadragon on the side of our boat, our caps and you can even buy our weedy seadragon plush toy on board!
