This world class eco-adventure cruise travels along the spectacular coastline of the Tasman National Park between Port Arthur and Eaglehawk Neck, southern Tasmania.
One of the highlights of the cruise is Tasman Island, a great landmark of the Southern Ocean – its slender white lighthouse is still a beacon for seafarers entering Storm Bay including during the famous annual Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race.
Few places on Earth have such a rich variety of marine wildlife and seabirds. The Continental Shelf runs close to Tasman Island and an upwelling of nutrient from the ocean's depths creates a smorgasbord for all the creatures in the complex food chain of the sea, from plankton and birdlife such as albatross to sharks, dolphins and southern right whales.
So much is happening out there, every day of the year. The abundant sea and coastal wildlife is extremely active, who knows what you will see on your cruise? Close encounters with wildlife are common:
Each day we decide on the direction of the cruise depending on the wind and the sea conditions. The tour will either leave from Eaglehawk Neck or at Port Arthur a short walk from our booking centre. Our main departure point is from our Port Arthur booking centre where we will transfer you to where our boat will be leaving from. You need to arrive at our booking office 40 minutes prior to the departure time to allow for these transfers.
