Great for those wanting to see the River Derwent and have a taste of the SV Rhona H Experience. This is a great way to see the best of the River Derwent under sail on a historic sailing ship. Sails are set as we depart Kings Pier Marina and turn towards the Tasman Bridge or head south depending on the wind. You’ll see Hobart highlights from the water: Battery Point, the Sydney to Hobart Yacht race finish line, Government House, and spot some of the local wildlife if they are out and about. Guests are welcome to help with the sails, take the helm, or just sit back and watch our all volunteer crew do the work. Adults enjoy tea and coffee with light refreshments. This option is year round. We have spare jackets on board and hot water bottles, no disposable hand warmers here!
