Hobart Waterfront & Iron Pot Cruise

by Tasman Island Cruises Duration 2h 30m Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $87

Cruise aboard a comfortable state-of-the-art vessel as you explore the Hobart Waterfront on this guided, small-group boat tour. Sail down the Derwent River, passing Battery Point’s lovely houses and Iron Pot, Australia’s oldest lighthouse, all while the massive Mount Wellington looms in the distance.

Climb onto your boat at Franklin Wharf, sitting down on one of the comfortable leather seats in the spacious enclosed cabin. As you meet your captain and get underway, large awning windows provide great views that allow you to immerse yourself in the beautiful surroundings. Make your way down the Derwent River, passing by Battery Point where gorgeous homes line the waterway.

Heading further south, the size and scale of Mount Wellington truly comes into view as it towers over the city and the adjacent harbor. Glide past the Iron Pot, a tiny white lighthouse fashioned with a bright-red stripe at its top that sits on a flat rocky island. Listen as your guide reveals intriguing stories about this structure, which happens to be Australia’s oldest lighthouse.

Cruising into Storm Bay, you soon reach Betsey Island, an uninhabited island home to a variety of seabirds, including gulls, cormorants, and the majestic white-bellied sea eagle. Soon, Hope Beach comes into view, an isolated beach known for its strong offshore winds. Sail close to the shore to feel the swell surging straight from the Southern Ocean, conditions that make this a favorite spot with local surfers.
