About
Get views of Wineglass Bay and Tasmania's Freycinet Peninsula from the deck of a boat on this half-day cruise. Sit back, relax, and watch for humpback whales, dolphins, and sea eagles—sights you may not catch on a traditional land-based tour. Dig into an included Ploughman's lunch (if option selected) while cruising past white-sand beaches, snapping photos of the rugged sea cliffs, and learning about the region through live commentary.

Highlights
  • Lunch of locally sourced produce and other products (if option selected)
  • Cash bar to taste local cool-climate wine
  • In-depth commentary about the area through live onboard commentary
What to expect
  • Step aboard a catamaran and find a comfortable spot on board to take in the scenery of Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula. The catamaran features both indoor and outdoor seating and floor-to-ceiling windows, so there's not a bad seat in the house. And, the cruise can proceed no matter the weather. Views of both of these natural areas are best enjoyed from on the water, not to mention the possibility of getting up close with local whales, dolphins, and sea birds. The boat drops anchor amid the natural scenery and, if you've selected the option at checkout, serves a Ploughman's lunch, consisting of local produce, such as salmon, cheese, and chocolate. Step up to the cash bar for beverages and cool-climate wines. As you travel, listen to live commentary about the local environment, flora, and fauna, learning much more about Wineglass Bay than you would by simply exploring on your own.

Fabulous day out, stunning scenery, great food, informative staff. Definitely worth doing then back it up by a walk to the Wineglass Bay lookout & you will have seen it all. We thoroughly enjoyed it even though it was a bit rough, on a calm day it would be positively sensational.

We had a fabulous day with a great crew. We did choose the more expensive tickets to be in the adults only deck up top and it was totally worth the extra. Included wine, beer, alcoholic ginger beer, all locally made. Water and soft drinks also available. Lunch was huge with lots of locally sourced smoked salmon and meats, cheeses, crackers and everything to go with them to satisfy any tastebud.

We saw Australian fur seals along the way, huge rocky cliffs and Wineglass Bay. The scenery was spectacular but I do have to say, Wineglass Bay has nothing on Whitehaven Beach in Queensland.

Having said all that, we really enjoyed great company with the other guests, smooth waters and beautiful scenery as well as full tummies and great service. A great way to see the area in one day.

Spent the extra money to sit in the sky lounge .. and was well worth the dollars. Had magnificient weather that made this the highlight of our trip in the area (that included a flight). One caveat..it can get very very rough in the Tasman Sea for part of the journey.. so if you are prone to seasickness take precautions in advance.

This is a lovely cruise on a stable catamaran with enclosed cabins. We were in the lounge upstairs which costs extra. Our hosts upstairs were Ewen and Matt (the captain) and I also spoke to Will. We started with a glass of bubbly and a pack of sweet treats including the biggest strawberries we have ever seen. Ewen provided interesting chat which made the cruise so much more enjoyable. We had excellent weather and stayed at Cole’s Bay and navigated around the Freycinet peninsula through Schouten Passage and into the Tasman Sea. Matt brought the boat close to the granite cliffs so we could see fur seals swimming and basking in the sun on the rocks and we got a good look at shoreline rock caves and waterfalls. Eventually we reached Wineglass Bay where we had a prepared lunch. The meal was generously sized with local fish, smoked salmon, chicken, salami, cheeses, crackers, salads all washed down with our preferred drink (mine was Willie Smith’s organic apple cider). We were surprised to see HMAS Hobart, a naval destroyer drop anchor in Wineglass Bay and Matt took us a close as permissible to get a good look at the ship. On the return leg we enjoyed our choice of beverages and I enjoyed chatting to Will who is working towards a highly credentialed captain’s qualification. This was a highlight of our trip to Tasmania. Definitely recommended.

From the moment we arrived on the upper deck, the food wine and service was terrific. Matt the skipper and Euan and Noah looked after us. We saw a seal, dozens of playful dolphins and a few cautious whales during our trip. The day was sunny and cool. The swell was negligible. The food was exquisite and generous. Highly recommended.

10 out of 10 for this cruise. Saw more whales than if we had taken a whale watching cruise!! Beautiful scenery, lovely friendly staff and the lunch we had was excellent - box lunch. Captain was very informative and took time to stop for us to whale watch. Would thoroughly recommend this cruise.

My fiancee and I went on the cruise to help celebrate our engagement and loved the experience. The staff were very friendly, caring and funny. A shout to Erin in particular who was fantastic. It was a bumpy ride at points which was fun and anyone on the boat who wasn't feeling well was looked after by the crew. Highly recommend!

Knowing how the weather can make or break a trip out on the water we were very lucky to jag a great day with mild winds and only a bit of chop. The cruise operators are very professional and clearly enjoy their work. We opted for the Vista Deck with lunch included and thought that the $20 lunch was good value. Thrown in for extra value were some whales that are making their way along the coast and all in all it was a great day out to remember.
