  • 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. Covered open-air tiered seating means an excellent all-round view and connection with the environment. The boats are safe, comfortable and gentle on th...

    This is an experience that all Tasmanians and future tourists should do. It was absolutely amazing

    I think whoever wants to visit Tasmania for a short period of time and want to make the best out of it, I recommend this tour. Tasmania is indeed very beautiful and the tour was well planned. Sometimes we would have to rush while walking and couldn’t spend enough time in some places but I guess otherwise we wouldn’t be able to see as many... Hostels that we have stayed varied in quality. I personally liked the one in Strahan the most and the good thing is that we stayed there two nights. I wish the tour guide in the beginning of the tour let us introduce ourselves like we did in Melbourne “go west-great ocean road tour”. Even on the fifth day we wouldn’t know each others names whereas in a day tour that I spend in Melbourne everybody had an idea who is who. I just recommend that to the tour company. All and all, I do recommend this tour especially if you are traveling alone or make the most out of Tasmania in restricted amount of time.

What people are saying about Port Arthur

We had an incredible trip. Staff were very informative. We saw a small whale breaching night next to the boat. There was a large pod of dolphins competing with the gorgeous seals for the school of fish. The landscape of the cliffs and going into the caves was very cool. All in all I would highly recommend this tour

What a fabulous experience and very knowledgeable guides, friendly and professional. Thank goodness we have the most beautiful state to explore during this lock-down. You will be highly recommended to all who ask about the experience and we will certainly be letting everyone know. Thank you
