You’ll travel aboard on a brand new vessel in a small group of up to 12 passengers. The spacious enclosed cabin contains comfortable leather seats. Large awning windows provide a great view and also allows you to immerse yourself in the stunning surroundings.

Cruising down the Derwent River you’ll pass historic Battery Point, now one of Tasmania’s premium residential addresses. You’ll see well-known landmarks like the iconic Wrest Point Casino and also the Shot Tower. Further south, you’ll truly appreciate the scale of Mount Wellington as it towers over the city.

Arrive at the Iron Pot, Australia’s oldest lighthouse, and be immersed in the fascinating history as your guide shares stories of Hobart’s early settlement.

This cruise offers not only an opportunity to take in Tasmania’s beautiful scenery but you’ll also learn the incredible history behind some of Tasmania’s most famous landmarks.

Iron Pot Cruise Information and Departure Times

Cruising into Storm Bay, we reach Betsey Island. This uninhabited island is home to a variety of seabirds, including gulls, cormorants and the majestic white bellied sea eagle.

As we circumnavigate Betsey Island, Hope Beach comes into view. This isolated beach is known for its large breaks and offshore winds. We cruise close in to the shore and feel the swell surging straight from the Southern Ocean; these conditions make this a favourite spot with local surfers.

After 2½ hours on the water you'll return to Hobart refreshed, with a newfound appreciation
for this beautiful harbour city.

Departure Information
