Description

Take to the waters of the Tasman Peninsula for a day of spectacle and adventure on this sea kayaking tour. Your voyage lets you get up-close and personal with the resident Australian fur seals along with some world-class views of some of the Southern Hemisphere's highest cliffs.

Set out along the coast of Tasman National Park towards Cape Hauy, where you can truly appreciate the scale of the high sea cliffs. Gaze up at 650-foot-high (200-m) fluted rock formations and into natural sea caves, get a photo of the towering Candlestick, and search for climbers on the sheer rock column of the Totem Pole.

After a gourmet Tasmanian lunch at a deserted cove, paddle over a semi-submerged shipwreck and marvel at the abundant marine wildlife that lives along this coast, including resident fur seals, soaring sea eagles, diving gannets, cliff-nesting cormorants, peregrine falcons, and maybe even a pod of dolphins or a migrating whale before you paddle back to shore.

Excellent kayaking experience! Our guides, Tory and Mischa, were fantastic. They provided lots of interesting information about the area and local wildlife. I had never kayaked before, and I always felt safe. They gave clear instructions on what to do, and paired everyone up in a way that worked really well. Some helpful hints - bring an extra pair of pants to change into since your pants will get wet. Also, bring a pair of reef shoes if you don't want to have to wear the ones they provide you. Rocks where you get out of the kayaks to have lunch are very slippery. Dress in layers, and even bring an extra jacket or shirt to change into just in case your shirt gets wet. They do provide pants you can put over your pants to keep dryer and a jacket to keep you dry and warm. Half way through our day, we stopped at an island to have lunch, which was very good - big sandwiches, fruit, cheese, tea, coffee, juice. Good idea to bring a Ziploc bag with tissues, hand wipes, and sunscreen.
