Board in Hobart at 4:00pm for a 8:00pm departure.
Gaze up at the 300 metre sea cliffs of Tasman National Park, the highest in the Southern Hemisphere, from a perfect position at sea. An area of huge natural diversity, it is possible to find Australian Fur Seals “hauling out” on the rocky shore at Tasman Island. Visit Fortescue Bay, hike the coastal Tasman Trail and kayak in Canoe Bay.
The historic ruins and rugged cliffs of Maria Island National Park are home to diverse wildlife that includes Forester Kangaroos, Bennetts Wallabies, and wombats. Walk to historic Darlington Settlement, explore the ancient seabeds of the Fossil Cliffs, and marvel at the sandstone formations of the Painted Cliffs.
At the Freycinet Peninsula, see the pink granite formations of the Hazard Mountains, and the sweeping bays fringed by eucalypt. Join a guided hike to the Wineglass Bay beach – one of the best beaches in the world. Witness fur seals lounging on the rocks at the Ile des Phoques.
Visit wild and rugged Flinders Island, and marvel at the pink and gray granite mountain ranges of Strzelecki National Park. Explore beautiful Trousers Point beach, visit seaside townships, discover the sad history of Wybalenna Settlement, and see relics of Flinders maritime past at the Furneaux Museum.
Spend two days on the scenic Tamar River – actually a tidal estuary. The river’s banks abound with scenic reserves, historical properties and notable vineyards. Explore Cataract Gorge and the city of Launceston, before a signature event at Josef Chromy Wines, with vineyard tours, winetastings, and cellar-door banquet.
Situated in the Bass Strait, King Island is known for its fine local produce. Tour the island with local guides and learn about the island’s colourful history and thriving industries. Sample a brie at the King Island Dairy tasting room, and enjoy a gourmet lunch with King Island scotch steak and locally caught crayfish.
Home to striking mountain ranges, ancient pines and untamed rivers, the wild west coast is the heart of Tasmania’s wilderness and a true frontier. Take in the dramatic scenery of this coastline during a day of cruising. Weather permitting, we may make a landing on this truly remote coastline.
A marine reserve, and part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, Port Davey is truly spectacular. If conditions allow, guests will spend one to two days exploring here. Enjoy the unforgettable experience of kayaking in Bramble Cove, and explore Melaleuca, along with hiking and bird-watching.
Experience the rugged beauty of Fluted Cape as you walk along the sheer coastal cliffs. Learn about the rich maritime history of Adventure Bay, and explore the history of old whaling stations on the way to Grassy Point.
