This intimate four-night expedition cruise links the leading lights of the east coast
From the world-heritage listed Port Arthur convict site to the turquoise-waters of Wineglass Bay. Experience the tallest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, cruise past magnificent mountains and call into secluded beaches as we explore national parks, historic sites and peninsulas.
Ashore and afloat, from Hobart to Freycinet, the experience is wild, tailored and immersive
Daily tender and shore excursions are about “getting your feet wet”, as skipper & founder Pieter van der Woude says. Encounter fluffy lawnmowers (aka wombats) at Maria Island, climb the granite-capped peaks of Freycinet National Park or take a guided clifftop bushwalk.
Pull-on your boots, grab a hat and step On Board for the experience of a lifetime.

World-heritage listed Maria Island
Maria Island National Park is a haven for wombats, wallabies and Tasmanian devils. Head ashore for a stroll to the patterned Painted Cliffs via the historic convict settlement, or beachcomb along the island’s long, sandy isthmus.
Tasman Peninsula’s soaring sea cliffs
Cruise between the 300m dolerite towers of Cape Pillar, the tallest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, and rugged Tasman Island. Hike to dizzying heights on the Cape Hauy clifftop walk. Search for seals, dolphins, migrating whales and sea birds.
Secluded beaches of Freycinet
Ashore and afloat, explore the pristine white beaches, turquoise waters and pink-granite peaks of the Freycinet Peninsula. Wineglass Bay’s beauty is world-renowned - we celebrate the lesser-known coves and corners too.
Food & Wine
Meals are an indulgent culinary experience made from fresh seasonal Tasmanian produce
Our specialist chefs have been borrowed from some of Hobart’s top restaurants. Expect perfect picnics, freshly-baked cookies pulled from the oven just as hungry hikers return, and flavoursome feasts in what is quite possibly the most remote restaurant in Tasmania.
Choose from a splendid selection of cool climate wines, crisp craft beers and slow-sipping spirits. Drink in hand, sink into a soft lounge and take in the everchanging view.
Be guided by local experts
Head into the wilderness with our all-star crew. From the skipper, to the host and the hand-picked expert guides, our talented and passionate team are the heart of this unforgettable experience. Their intimate knowledge of Tasmania will connect people to place. Plus, they’re funny and love to share a story (or three).
