Passenger ferry services operate between Tasmania and the Australian mainland and Tasmania and off-shore islands.

TT-Line is an incorporated enterprise wholly owned by its single shareholder, the state of Tasmania. The company provides a passenger, passenger vehicle and freight service - the Spirit of Tasmania ships. Spirit of Tasmania I and II depart every night from Melbourne and Devonport with day sailings running during peak periods. Spirit of Tasmania III travels between Sydney and Devonport three times a week (six crossings) departing out of Devonport on Monday, Thursday and Saturday and Sydney on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.

Other ferry services operate within the Tasmanian group of islands, including the passenger/vehicle service to Bruny Island, Flinders Island and Maria Island.
