1. Hobart: 2.5-hour Iron Pot Lighthouse Cruise

Travel aboard a brand new vessels 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, you'll be immersed in the fascinating history as your guide shares stories of Hobart's early settlement. Cruising into Storm Bay, you'll reach Betsey Island. This uninhabited island is home to a variety of seabirds, including gulls, cormorants and the majestic white bellied sea eagle. As you circumnavigate Betsey Island, Hope Beach comes into view. This isolated beach is known for its large breaks and offshore winds. You'll cruise close in to the shore and feel the swell surging straight from the Southern Ocean; these conditions make this a favorite spot with local surfers. After 2.5 hours on the water you'll return to Hobart refreshed, with a newfound appreciation for this beautiful harbor city.

Tim gave us a fantastic tour of the Derwent River, Storm Bay and Iron Pot lighthouse. Commentary was awesome. Informative and humorous all at the same time! We were lucky enough to see Dolphins, who also graced us for a show in the boats wake, in addition to seals, Sea Eagles and numerous other bird species. Highly recommended.

It was fantastic, Toby our guide was so good, we learnt a lot about the area. The boat was very comfortable and you were able to move to the front and back freely if you wanted to. Definitely recommend this.

Fantastic fun, like a wild amusement ride at times with nature and history thrown in. Highly recommend

Fabulous scenery, brilliant commentary, fabulous vessel
