Join the ultimate Tasman Peninsula adventure with a 3-hour cruise and an afternoon at the Port Arthur Historic Site!
Starting in Hobart, you'll travel out to the Tasman Peninsula, stopping along the way to enjoy morning tea at a local cafe. You'll arrive at Eaglehawk Neck and transfer to an open-air cruise ship. Set off around the peninsula's rugged coast, making sure to keep an eye out for dolphins, seals and whales along the coast. Enjoy spectacular views as you glide beneath the towering sea cliffs, peer inside sea caves, and spot peregrine falcons and other sea birds swooping over the sea or nesting in the cliffs.
Back on land, you'll stop for lunch at a local restaurant before continuing to the Port Arthur Historic Site, one of Australia’s UNESCO-listed convict sites. After an introduction from your guide, you are free to discover the former penal settlement at your own pace. With around three hours to explore the open-air museum, see the guard tower, penitentiary, and tower cottage, and uncover the harrowing history of the site, which forms a key part of Australia’s convict history. Afterwards, you'll board an air-conditioned coach and return to Hobart.
See two of Tasmania's most famous attractions in one action-packed day!
