Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your day trip from Hobart starts with the approximate 1.5-hour drive by coach to the Tasman Peninsula, during which your guide will point out sights and provide commentary. Stop for morning tea, and then embark on your 3-hour cruise, taking in the stunning coastline of Tasman National Park.

Stare up at some of Australia’s tallest sea cliffs, enter deep sea caves, spot the lighthouse that guards Storm Bay, and keep your eyes open for seals and dolphins. With the boat’s covered open-air seating, you’ll have great viewing opportunities of the sea and shore.

When you return to land, enjoy lunch before spending the afternoon on a tour with your guide to peninsula attractions such as Remarkable Cave, the Federation Chocolate Factory and Port Arthur lavender Farm (alternatively, upgrade your ticket to include either the Tasmanian Devil Conservation Park or Port Arthur Historic Site instead). Your day trip ends with the drive back to Hobart.

Upgrade Sightseeing Options

You can’t see everything in one day, but you can try! Customize the sightseeing to suit you. Instead of visiting local attractions like Remarkable Cave, Federation Chocolate Factory and Port Arthur lavender Farm you can choose one of these upgrade options:

Great day, you leave early but well worth it. Sam our driver was fantastic. Full of light hearted jokes but also knew his stuff. You would be happy to have him for the day. On the water was extra exhilarating we got a glimpse of 2 Southern Right whales and 2 Humpbacks, I must admit we were extra lucky. On board we had Isabel and Nick. Isabel looked after a few who got sick, they will offer ginger tablets and I think they worked. Nick the driver of our boat gave us plenty of times to see the cliffs and his commentary was first rate. Exhilaration and serenity all in one. This trip is a must do I will do it again, I was worried about it being to bumpy for my back (66) but strap in tight and all's well.

Great morning tea and lunch provided. Wonderful views from the scenic stops. Shame the lighthouse was having work done on it, so couldn't climb up to the tower. Still took some good photos. Friendly guide who looked out for everyone. Thank you Nigel.
