    Why You'll Love This

    What's Included?

    Tasmania is renowned for its stunning beauty, clear waters and abundant birdlife. Choose from two magnificant sailing locations, Norfolk Bay or Hobart Derwent River.

    On Norfolk Bay we will cruise close to the shoreline where sailboats and steamers of old called to deliver their passengers and freight to the Peninsula, where probation stations were established to rehabilitate the convicts of Port Arthur, and on to the historic coalmine site, where passengers can go ashore by dinghy to explore the unrestored site before lunch and a leisurely return sail.

    Full day cruises are also available departing Hobart, cruising the Derwent River to the mouth of the D’Entrecasteaux
    Channel. Both cruises include lunch served at anchor, and there is time to swim, use our kayaks or explore the shore line by dinghy. The views that can be seen only from the water are spectacular and our cruises may encounter dolphins, seals, penguins or even an occasional migrating whale.
