Carry-On Luggage

Passengers are welcome to bring on board, one (1) carry-on item (excluding infant fare type).

No luggage is allowed in the aisles, wheelchair spaces or any other area that may hinder a rapid evacuation. 

Additional items or sporting equipment such as bikes must be pre-booked and will incur a small fee for transfer. These items are not allowed inside the main area of the vessel.

Please Note: There is very limited storage space in the passenger cabin, luggage will be taken and stowed on a first in, first served basis. 

Luggage Delivery

If staying overnight, you can have your luggage (bags and eskies) delivered to your accommodation on your behalf. Each piece of luggage will incur a $2.00 transport fee. 

Luggage labels must be collected from the ticket office at check in. Please have your accommodation address ready at time of check-in.
