This full-day cruise begins on Hobart's vibrant waterfront, amongst the fishing boats moored at Constitution Dock. You will cruise aboard one of our brand new custom-built vessels, featuring a spacious enclosed cabin and luxury leather seats. You'll be one of up to 10 guests treated to an unforgettable day of indulgence and relaxation.
We cruise down the Derwent River and into the sheltered waters of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel that surround Bruny Island. As we voyage south, we leave all traces of civilisation behind.
Our guides know these waters intimately. They've grown up in this wilderness environment, with its picturesque landscapes and beautiful deserted beaches. Throughout the day they'll provide an entertaining insight into the surrounding landscapes and animals. Such local knowledge only comes from spending years in and around these clean blue waters.
Our first taste of the day is at Get Shucked oyster farm where we harvest oysters from the crystal blue water. Slurp the succulent, salty oysters straight from the shell. We'll pause at the edge of one of Bruny Island's secluded bays so your guide can jump in and snorkel for abalone and sea urchin. Further south, we'll spot a bobbing buoy in the distance. As we drift alongside you'll feel the suspense - will there be a crayfish in the pot?
After collecting all our sensational seafood, it's time to stretch your legs with a stroll onshore. As the boat nudges onto a deserted Bruny Island beach, you'll feel the sand between your toes. Contemplate the stillness, enjoy the silence and let your mind wander.
Back on board the boat and it's time to enjoy the fruits of our morning gatherings. You may choose to assist your guide as they prepare a bountiful seafood feast - crayfish, abalone, sea urchin, mussels, oysters, sashimi, salmon. This is paired with a delicious gourmet spread of fresh local breads, salads and artisan cheeses, and matched with Tasmanian wines, boutique beers, ciders and juices.
