Full Day Tasman Peninsula Kayak Tour
An inspiring day paddle with fluted sea cliffs, sea caves, shipwrecks and wildlife. Paddle along 200-metre-high cliffs, look for Australian fur seals and search for shipwrecks. Departs every Monday and Friday, Nov to April.
If you are looking for an inspiring day paddle with fluted sea cliffs, sea caves, shipwrecks and wildlife, this is the trip for you. We depart from Hobart, travelling by comfortable air-conditioned minivan to the beautiful Fortescue Bay, in the heart of the Tasman National Park.
We paddle beneath 200-metre-high cliffs towards Cape Hauy, the Candlestick and the Totem Pole (famed by rock climbers the world over). Wildlife is abundant and we keep a look out for the Australian fur seals that like to reside on the rocks, dolphins, sea eagles, penguins and if we are very lucky even whales.
A delicious picnic lunch including fresh Tasmanian produce is enjoyed at a secluded bay before paddling back along the coast, pausing at a semi-submerged shipwreck on the way. Your guides will fill you in on the natural history and wildlife of the region as you soak up the beauty of this stunning stretch of Tasmania’s coastline.
NOTE: Fortescue Bay offers one of the best day paddling locations in Australia, but it is exposed to swell and strong winds in adverse weather conditions. If the weather is not suitable on the day you book we will call you the day prior and offer you the choice of another day, a different paddle in more protected waters or a full refund.
