Coronavirus Update (COVID-19)

Updated: 7 July 2020

With easing government restrictions regarding COVID-19, we will commence cruising from 10 July 2020 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays until further notice. We look forward to welcoming you aboard Spirit of the Wild.

Please note that up to and including this time, our Terminal operating hours have been adjusted to 10AM - 3PM, 7 days a week

Our first priority at the moment is the health, safety and wellbeing of our guests, staff and community. We feel we are in a strong position to help to be part of the effort against the spread of COVID-19 through this action and thank you for your support of our decision to halt cruising until 10 July 2020.
