If you really want to unwind and relax then try ourfull day Hobart Luxury cruise. Imagine a whole 6 hours just kicking back and taking in the fantastic scenery that only Tasmania can provide. This is a Tasman Peninsula Cruise where you can indulge yourself and just take it all in!

What you will see on full day Hobart cruise

Leaving from Kings Pier at Constitution Dock in the City of Hobart, you begin your fabulous day by cruising down the Derwent River –which is known as the gateway to Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. And as the morning moves along – you will cruise past Opossum Bay at the tip of the South Arm Peninsula –and with its beautiful ribbon of white beaches - it is truly a hidden gem!

Tasmania is renowned for its unparalleled scenery - the coastal waters are teeming with sea birds and water life. Don’t miss the chance to see fairy penguins up close as you cruise on by,and you know we have lots of seals here as well! You may even see our famous southern right whales and their calves, which are known to frequent the River Derwent.

The Derwent River cruise continues on through Fredrick Henry Bay, just east of the South Arm Peninsula and this area is a fisherman’s delight. During the summer months the Bay comes alive with a flotilla of local boats, as people head out for the day in search of a flathead, salmon, cod or flounder.The Frederick Henry Bay Cruise will ease your stresses away as you drop a line and catch the best fish ever!

As the day progresses there is so much more to see – how about the Lime Bay Nature Reserve on Tasman Peninsula? If you are into conservation, then this Reserve is a must see! Then there is the Coal Mines Historic Site at Saltwater River nearby. Worked by convicts during the mid-19th century, the ruins are a great way to catch up on some local history.

And we haven’t forgotten the bird lovers – let’s cruise on to Spectacle Island, a local bird sanctuary. Imagine relaxing over lunch while thousands of Crested Terns and Silver Gulls wheel overhead. You might be lucky enough to see one of the local Sea Eagles come marauding by from its eyrie on Woody Island.

You will be spoilt for things to see on the full day Hobart Luxury cruise – did we forget about the spectacular cliffs and great surfing at Cape Deslacs? The cliffs here soar up more than 50 m high and the beach is a popular surfing location for the locals. And if you are into sailing – you might recall that Tasman Island is where the Sydney to Hobart Race turns right to head towards Hobart – and on past the unmanned lighthouse on Iron Pot Island, 17.5 km east of Hobart, to finally end off Hobart’s Battery Point, with the towering Mt Wellington in the background.
