Port Davey


Explore a remote and spectacular harbour at the edge of the world on a luxury expedition cruise. This Wilderness World Heritage-listed area is inaccessible by road and only experienced by a privileged few each year. Over four to six nights, venture into untouched lands of majestic quartzite mountains, mirror-calm waterways and wave-battered coastlines on guided walks and shore excursions.



Celebrating a new partnership with fellow Tasmanian luxury operator Saffire Freycinet, On Board is excited to offer a select series of 6-night expeditions combining small ship adventure through the remote southwest corner of Tasmania’s Wilderness World-Heritage Area and a luxury stay at Saffire Freycinet on the stunning east coast

Port Davey Escape


Discover the best day hikes in Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour - including part of the Port Davey Track and South Coast Track (Melaleuca to New Harbour Range) - on a special walking-focussed 5-day expedition cruise.

South Coast


Jump on board the bi-annual voyage between Hobart and Port Davey, Southwest Tasmania. This special multi-day expedition tracks the inaccessible and notoriously wild south coast of Tasmania, cruising past the rugged headland of South West Cape, remote coastal towns and secluded bays.



Led by experienced wilderness photographer and guide Peter Marmion, capture the wild seas, reflective waterways, craggy cliffs and scenic sunsets of the south west in magic Autumn light. This annual floating workshop provides panoramic access to every angle of the captivating landscapes of Port Davey, Bathurst Harbour, Melaleuca and Southwest National Park.

East Coast


Link the leading lights of Tasmania's east coast (from the World Heritage-listed Port Arthur convict site to the turquoise waters of Wineglass Bay) on this intimate 4-night expedition cruise from Hobart to Freycinet. Experience the tallest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, cruise to far-flung islands and call into secluded beaches as we explore national parks, historic sites and peninsulas.



Boutique-cruiser Odalisque is available for custom day charters for special interest, incentive, corporate and family groups, and offers luxury accommodation for overnight charters in Tasmania. On Board provides skipper and crew. You choose the destination. Together, we design a unique itinerary.



Odalisque is a unique floating venue for Hobart functions and private events – from birthday parties, corporate gatherings and Christmas celebrations, to wakes and weddings. Whatever the occasion, celebrate in style in a magical waterfront setting on the River Derwent.
