What to expect

Travel aboard in a small group of up to 12 passengers. The spacious enclosed cabin contains comfortable leather seats. Large awning windows provide a great view and allow you to immerse yourself in the surroundings. Cruising down the Derwent River you'll pass historic Battery Point, now one of Tasmania's premium residential addresses. You'll see well-known landmarks like the iconic Wrest Point Casino and the Shot Tower. Further south, you'll truly appreciate the scale of Mount Wellington as it towers over the city.

Arrive at the Iron Pot, Australia's oldest lighthouse, and be immersed in the fascinating history as your guide shares stories of Hobart's early settlement. Cruising into Storm Bay, reach Betsey Island. This uninhabited island is home to a variety of seabirds, including gulls, cormorants and the majestic white-bellied sea eagle. As we circumnavigate Betsey Island, Hope Beach comes into view. This isolated beach is known for its large breaks and offshore winds. We cruise close into the shore and feel the swell surging straight from the Southern Ocean; these conditions make this a favorite spot with local surfers. After 2½ hours on the water you'll return to Hobart refreshed, with a newfound appreciation
for this beautiful harbour city.
