Make the most of the sunny days

The best way to beat the post-holiday blues is to book your next one!

If you island hop with us between 1 February and 30 April 2020, you’ll only pay $49 per adult/senior. Plus you can take your vehicle from only $99. The only catch is that it doesn’t apply to travel for Easter weekend 9 to 14 April 2020.

Hurry – deals only available until midnight 22 January

February and March is the best time of the year to set sail and explore your own backyard. Make the most of less crowds and more sunny days.

Or if you're mega-organised, book early for the April school holidays and save. Did you know that Easter is coinciding with the school holidays again next year like it did this year? That means you can take a few days off and have a decent break to look forward to. April is a busy time of the year on the ferries so we recommend you book early.
