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.

We had a few hours to spare in Hobart before our flight and happened upon this cruise!! What a lucky find it was!! Really great way to see Hobart from the water and to see the iron pot lighthouse. This trip was well worth it.

Thoroughly enjoyed this cruise. Would definitely recommend doing this trip. The tour guide was absolutely awesome and very knowledgeable.

A lovely couple of hours creating memories. Special thanks to Luke for his patience and understanding and most of all his knowledge.

Absolutely wonderful and informative 2.5 hrs out on the water! Worth the price!

Highly recommended. The guide Tom was exceptional with his knowledge.
