  • Tasman Island: 3-Hour Wilderness Cruise

    1. Tasman Island: 3-Hour Wilderness Cruise

    The cruise travels beneath the highest vertical sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere at Cape Pillar. Guests explore waterfalls, rock formations, archways and deep-sea caves. The coastline is part of the Tasman National Park. It is home to a variety of wildlife including hundreds of seals, migrating whales and abundant sea birds in their thousands. At any time of year you're likely to see the feeding frenzy of diving gannets, albatross and sea eagles wheeling on the wind, cliff-nesting cormorants and peregrine falcons, or a pod of playful dolphins surfing the bow wave of the boat. The custom built yellow boats are ideal for viewing the spectacular coastline and wildlife of the Tasman Peninsula. Each vessel holds a maximum of 43 guests.

You will then enter th...

    Was a jam-packed day with lots of variety! The Tasman National Park walk and views were lovely. The Lavender Farm is quite small, so only had 30 minutes there. The tour included entry into the Port Arthur Historic Site and a boat ride. My guide Andrew, and the other travellers in my tour group made the experience even more enjoyable. Would highly recommend for a great day out!
