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 in to an included ploughman's lunch while cruising past white-sand beaches, snapping photos of the rugged sea cliffs, and learning about the region through live 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 will drop anchor amid the natural scenery and serve 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.

Seas swell and vomit.

What the glossy promo photos don't show you are the number of people violently sick as the boat hits the open ocean. You are not fully informing people paying $150.00 to sit in their own vomit at the back of the boat. Shame on you!...More

We had a reasonably smooth ride. You go along the coast line. Lunch is in Wineglass Bay. Very calm. Suggest upstairs. Best to check weather before you cruise.

I get seasick myself, but on stable boats like this, I don't even bother to take my preferred Travelcalm. If you are severely prone to seasickness, take your preferred sea-sickness tablet before you board. Looking regularly... More
