Seaplane Tour over Hobart and River Derwent

Hobart by Seaplane

Departing from Kings Pier Marina on Hobart’s lovely waterfront, your seaplane will taxi from the docks into the River Derwent before taking off into the air. With headphones provided, listen to commentary from your experienced and knowledgeable captain as he points out Hobart’s many historic attractions.

After take-off, circle over Hobart and trace the city’s landmarks below, from Salamanca Place to the lofty backdrop of Mount Wellington. You’ll see the Tasman Bridge, Government House, the Botanical Gardens and the cutting-edge architecture of MONA – the Museum of Old and New Art.

Continuing towards the mouth of the River Derwent, you’ll see the lovely village of Battery Point and the tower of Wrest Point casino. Heading over the water, look out for Northern Bruny Island and see yachts sailing on D'Entrecasteaux Channel. You might even spot dolphins or seals, or even a migrating whale!

You’ll also see the bays and coves of the Tasman Peninsula and the Southern Ocean stretching to the horizon, before returning to Hobart for another view of the city center and waterfront. A thrilling landing on the water completes your scenic tour of Hobart by seaplane.

Numbers are limited to six passengers, ensuring a comfortable flight.
