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.

  • Get ideal views of Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula from the deck of a catamaran
  • 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.

As we were travelling child free, and I don't do things by by halves, we opted for the sky lounge tickets. What a day we had! During the 4.5 hour cruise we saw dolphins, seals, sea eagles and some of the most stunning scenery there is. We were so well looked after by Noah and

This company seemed to have been recently bought out by Robert Pennicott's Wilderness Cruises company. Indeed, it was Mr P himself who was the captain on the day. The crew were amazing - really friendly and very caring. Although the trip started out calmly it got quite bumpy
