Hobart is set on the Derwent River estuary, which sets it apart as one of the world’s great sailing cities and harbors.
Take a cruise by jet boat or ferry on the Derwent, or cross the water by water-taxi. Cruises go upriver to Moorilla Winery or the Cadbury Factory, or out to Iron Pot Lighthouse near Bruny Island.
The harbor is indented with sandy bays and beaches and crossed by several bridges. From the water you can see Mount Wellington, the docks, botanical gardens and suburbs.
Sea kayaking is another way of experiencing the Derwent, leaving from the Hobart docks and paddling around the city.
Had a fantastic trip aboard this comfortable racing yacht with fabulous crew who let us take the helm whilst keeping a weather eye on our course!
Met some lovely people . Mark and his crew Luke and Phil thanks so much for a great day out. Don't hesitate .....great experience .
Starting with making a booking for the seaplane tour, everything went very smoothly. I had a call from the tour operators within minutes of the booking, and we had nothing but extra friendly service from all the team. The office staff made us welcome, and Jethro was a great pilot and tour guide.

The Derwent River rises in Lake St Clair in the mountainous heart of Tasmania, and flows 240 km (148 miles) to reach the sea.
