What You Can Expect
From the boat, admire the highest vertical sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, visit sea caves and see cliff-nesting peregrine falcons. The boat features covered open-air tiered seating so everyone gets a good all-round view, improving your chances of maybe spotting whales, seabirds, seals and dolphins swimming at the bow of the boat. The interpretive guides will shed light on the peninsula’s ecosystems, wildlife and history.
Back on dry land, enjoy lunch (included), before spending three hours at the World Heritage-listed Port Arthur Historic Site. Feel the spooky atmosphere at this former penal colony set in landscaped grounds, and hear tales from the site’s convict days as you tour the evocative ruins, which include the guard tower, church and main penitentiary.
The trip back to Hobart departs at around 4.30pm, arriving in the city at around 6pm.
Boat trip to Tasman Peninsula was a perfect day. It was a bit of an adventure. Loved the way they presented the coast lines, lucky to see many seals sunbathing on shores. The historical site is a big garden. History and ghost stories are not my cup of tea. But got a lot of nice shots. Nice tour guy
