Luxury Cruising

Indulge in a three-hour or full-day sail on the fabulous Derwent River and beyond. Sail on one of the largest and most beautiful natural harbours in the world, with spectacular views of Hobart and Mt Wellington. The best Tasmanian fare will be provided as refreshments along with tea, coffee and other non-alcoholic drinks. Full-day sails will take in the fabulous waters around Bruny Island and anchor for a gourmet lunch, some fishing, swimming or whatever takes your fancy. A selection of fine Tasmanian wine and beer is always available onboard.
