Luggage

Your ticket price includes one small ‘carry-on’ bag up to 7kg and no larger than 600 x 400 x 300mm (approx).

Please ensure that you include all essential items in your carry-on bag (e.g. medications and valuables) as your checked-in luggage will not be accessible during the journey.

Additional costs apply to larger luggage on a per person basis. One piece of luggage up to 15kg and no larger than 800 x 500 x 400mm (approx) is $10, and each extra piece of luggage is $5. Luggage and freight prices are summarized below:

One ‘carry-on’ bag – free
1st piece of luggage – $10
Additional pieces of luggage – $5 each
Bicycle – $10
Kayak – $20
Pram – free (if travelling with an infant)

Bicycles must weigh no more than 15kg.

Please enquire about freight prices for items not listed above.

Please consider what you bring and how you pack it. Make sure that each item is contained, weather proof and weighs no more than 15kg each. Refrain from ‘piggy-backing’ – tying loose items together (cooking equipment to a backpack, or a sleeping bag to an esky). Items can become loose, get snagged on rigging or boat hardware, and may become a safety hazard.

Tip: Pack multiple soft items (sleeping bags and pillows) in a larger zip-up bag or suitcase. Pack cooking equipment together in a plastic tub with food.

Check-in

All passengers (with or without tickets, with or without luggage) must check-in at the Triabunna Visitor Information Centre (adjacent to the wharf) at least 30 minutes prior to the departure time. You will be issued with luggage tags for each applicable item and informed as to any schedule changes, relevant safety information and boarding procedures.

The staff will be able to answer any last minute questions you have about your journey to Maria, and also provide information about what to do and where to go on your return.

When boarding the boat have at least one hand free to hold onto the gangway. Even small waves can cause the boat to surge resulting in the gangway moving around. Some passengers may find it difficult to cross. Please ask for assistance from the crew if required. If it’s windy and raining (not that it ever is on the east coast!) slow down and take extra care.
