Discover the real Tasmania on our cruise to Peppermint Bay aboard a 23
metre catamaran. The vessel is warm, luxurious and fast, offering a unique and comfortable way to explore the bays of south east Tasmania. There are extensive outer deck areas and expansive floor to
ceiling windows for unsurpassed views as you cruise the bays.
Located just a short walk from the cruise ship, the tour departs from Sullivan's Cove in Hobart. The cruise traverses the
Harbour, the River Derwent and the magnificent waters of the d'Entrecasteaux Channel, on its way to Peppermint Bay.
Upon boarding the boat the experienced crew will show you to your reserved
window seats and then throughout the cruise will provide an informative commentary as you pass many significant sights.
The state-of-the-art underwater 'Spy Ball' camera, will allow you see what
life is like in the waters of the Tinderbox Marine Reserve without getting wet! See giant kelp forests, crayfish, stingrays and myriad other fish species!
Arriving at picturesque Peppermint Bay, a short walk brings you to the restaurant where
you can enjoy a set menu three course banquet style meal over looking the water, featuring the best ingredients the region has to offer.
After lunch there is time for a short walk to explore
Peppermint Bay and the little seaside village of Woodbridge, perhaps taking the sculpture trail along the foreshore to walk of your meal.
Back on board the catamaran, we head north to return to
Hobart, following the same route made by yachtsman every year in the famous Sydney to Hobart yacht race, passing under the Tasman Bridge which signals the end of your day on the water.
