4-night East Coast Expedition
Link the leading lights of the east coast - from the World Heritage-listed Port Arthur convict site to the turquoise waters of Wineglass Bay - on this intimate 4-night expedition.
Expeditions are based from a ‘floating boutique hotel’, the Odalisque. Guests are entertained by an all-star crew, including a skipper, host, chef & guide. Our specialist chefs (borrowed from Hobart’s top restaurants) provide top-notch Tasmanian fare, all paired with fine Tasmanian wine.
Our hand-picked expert guides (with years of experience in the area) will double as your personal walking encyclopaedias. Daily shore excursions, tailored to your interests, will see you totally immersed in all the east coast has to offer. It’s all about “getting your feet wet” (as skipper & owner Pieter van der Woude regularly says).
During your unforgettable time with us, experience the tallest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, cruise past magnificent mountains and call into secluded beaches as we explore national parks, historic sites and peninsulas.
The cruise experience is offered either from Hobart - Coles Bay or Coles Bay - Hobart, with land transfers included at either end of the cruise as required.
$10300 - $11800
4-night Port Davey Escape
From a boutique – and brand-new – expedition vessel, explore the remote southwest wilderness with daily guided walks, tender excursions, and bespoke itineraries in intimate groups. Scale countless mountain peaks for expansive wilderness views, and explore the sea caves, rivers and estuaries of breathtaking harbours. You’re in the hands of expert local guides, who double as walking encyclopedias, ecologists and environmentalists, tailoring itineraries and activities to guest interests.
Arrive via scenic wilderness flight to a remote and spectacular harbour in Tasmania’s World Heritage Wilderness Area. Inaccessible by road, this wild corner of the Southwest National Park is only experienced by a privileged few each year.
Over 4 unforgettable nights, explore the calm, reflective waters of Bathurst Harbour, ancient rainforests, buttongrass plains, and quartzite mountain peaks. Beyond Port Davey’s entrance, wander through a tea-tree forest and onto the untracked sands of a wild Southern Ocean beach, where there’s nothing between us and Antarctica.
Spy rare and endangered wildlife, and learn of Tasmania’s Aboriginal people at the largest middens in the Southern Hemisphere. Admire the sunset over a glass of Tasmanian sparkling and a feast of farmer’s market produce and fresh oysters, before evening storytelling and stargazing.
$11600 - $13100
