Full description
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. Covered open-air tiered seating means an excellent all-round view and connection with the environment. The boats are safe, comfortable and gentle on the environment due to their fuel efficiency and low emission operation.

    A knowledgeable guide and a variety of experiences made this trip most enjoyable. The boat used made this possible, with its ability to travel at speed safely between the caves, arches, tall cliffs, islands, seals, birds and dolphins. This left plenty of time to see all at a more sedate speed.

    One of the best guided cruises we have done - anywhere in the world. Both the captain and our guide were humorous, professional and very knowledgeable on everything we could ever have wanted to know about the sights we saw. A pity we were not provided with headsets to better hear the fascinating stories which was a little challenging with engine and sea noise. Despite this one improvement suggestion, we were given a close up view of Albatrosses (+/- 100!!), dolphins, seals etc. We explored the spectacular coast line including close-ups of amazing rock formations, blowholes and caves. A fantastic 3 hours. Well worth every cent we paid. Thank you team.

    It was a fantastic morning out cruising the coast line! Seals, dolphins and albatross! Lily was absolutely fantastic explaining all the sites of note and animals we saw. Always making sure that everyone on board was happy and felt safe at all times. The skipper (can't remember his name) but did everything in his power to ensure that we were all safe and got the perfect photo. It was a rough day in the ocean but that added to the thrill of it!
