Coastal Wilds of Tasmania Cruise

Immerse in Tasmania’s breathtaking National Parks, from the perfect circular formation of Wineglass Bay to the dramatic peaks of pink granite at Freycinet or the otherworldly remoteness of Maria Island National Park. At Tasman National Park, seals, dolphins and albatross greet you, backed by intimidating nearly-1,000-foot-high cliffs.

Guided by an expert expedition team and a guest Parks and Wildlife Ranger who knows the area inside out, gain a unique local’s experience and insider view of the area. Embark on easy to moderate short hikes, including the famed South Coast Track at Cockle Bay and the rugged Fluted Cape of Bruny Island.

The main 11-day round-trip itinerary allows provides an authentic expedition voyage, with a flexible itinerary in which the captain responds to weather conditions to ensure the best parts of Tassie in the best possible conditions. In the spirit of adventure, guests will be advised the day prior where their next adventure lies—perhaps an undiscovered track or even a seal colony basking in the sunlight. If conditions allow, spend two days exploring the untouched Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area at Port Davey and Bathurst Harbor. Normally only accessible by 7-day hike or light aircraft, this region is undoubtedly one of the most pristine and beautiful landscapes on Earth.

For a complete experience, consider the 17-day Circumnavigation of Tasmania itinerary, round-trip from Hobart. In addition to many stops outlined in the 11-day itinerary, explore northern coastal highlights like Hunter Islands and the charming seaside village of Stanley.

Passage is aboard the 72-guest Coral Discoverer. This benchmark small ship offers her guests a uniquely Australian onboard atmosphere, with stylish furnishings, generous decks and the latest of modern facilities. Appreciate opportunities to kayak; snorkel; and cruise in a Zodiac, glass-bottom boat or the ship’s special Xplorer tender. Numerous onboard amenities and superior service ensure this Tasmania small ship cruise is like no other.

Tasmania Exploration

No two Tasmania voyages are the same. Throughout the expedition, allowances may be made for seasonal variations, weather, tidal conditions and any other event that may affect the operation of the vessel. Below is a selection of the key destinations visited.

Port Davey & Bathurst Harbor

Here on the edge of the world in southwest Tasmania, the landscape is about as wild as it gets. This region has no road access, surrounded by raw, craggy-peaked mountains and drowned river valleys, where tannin-rich freshwater sits atop saltwater, tinting the ocean the color of tea. Spend 2 days (weather permitting) enjoying the rare opportunity to hike, kayak and take in the pristine natural environment of Port Davey, part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. Explore the nooks and crannies of Bathurst Harbor and learn about intrepid explorers and Indigenous Australians who once walked this land. Enjoy the unforgettable experience of kayaking in Bramble Cove, hiking the button-grass hills and looking for the rare orange-bellied parrot at Melaleuca.

Bruny Island & Adventure Bay

At Adventure Bay on the east coast of Bruny Island, walk along the dramatic coastal cliffs of Fluted Cape and hope to see Bennett’s Wallabies, which are endemic to Bruny Island. Cruising the base of these near-vertical dolerite cliffs in Xplorer tender vessels, take a close look at Penguin Island, which is connected to Fluted Cape at low tide. Learn about how southern right whales were almost hunted to extinction and Adventure Bay housed four whaling stations before the industry’s decline in the mid-1840s. The ruins can be seen on a walk to Grass Point.

Maria Island National Park

Maria Island can be referred to as a Noah’s Ark for native Tasmanian species. The Maria Island National Park provides an ideal sanctuary, and is one of the best places in Australia to observe endemic birdlife as well as wombats, Cape Barren geese, forester kangaroos, Bennett’s wallabies and pademelons. Stroll amongst the ruins and restored buildings of the Darlington convict settlement and take a walk to the striking formations of the Painted Cliffs, where rich iron deposits have stained the sandstone cliffs with colored streaks of red, purple and orange. With ample time at Maria Island, there is also the opportunity to do the Fossil Cliffs walk and the Reservoir circuit.

Freycinet National Park & Schouten Island

The Freycinet Peninsula is a dramatic headland dominated by a pink-hued granite mountain range called The Hazards. Blessed with picturesque sweeping bays with white sand beaches like famed Wineglass Bay, much of the peninsula is designated as Freycinet National Park. Take a guided hike along the Isthmus Track and be rewarded with magnificent views from the lookout or swim in the azure waters of Wineglass Bay. Cruising close to Ile des Phoques and Schouten Island, keep an eye out for large colonies of fur seals sunning themselves on the rocks.

Tasman National Park & Fortescue Bay

The Tasman Peninsula is known for its geological formations like the Tessellated Pavement, Tasman Arch, and the soaring 1,000-foot-high dolerite sea cliffs of Cape Raoul, Cape Pillar and Cape Hauythe tallest in the southern hemisphere. Watch fur seals hauling out on the rocks, as well as playful dolphins and soaring albatross. Visit Fortescue Bay and hike sections of the Three Capes Trek to Cape Itauy, or take a scenic Xplorer tender vessel cruise along the rugged coastline and kayak in Canoe Bay.

Port Arthur Historic Site

One of Australia’s most significant historic places, Port Arthur, is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The ruins stand sentinel on the Tasman Peninsula south of the narrow isthmus of Eaglehawk Neck. For more than 40 years the Port Arthur penal colony housed British and Australian convicts sentenced to hard labor before its heavy iron doors clanked shut for the last time in 1877. Today, the Historic Site has over 30 buildings, ruins and restored period homes set in 100 acres of landscaped grounds. In the company of Port Arthur’s knowledgeable guides, join an exclusive behind the scenes tour, which includes access to private collections and historic buildings not otherwise accessible to the public.

D’Entrecasteaux Channel & Huon River

Where the mouth of the Huon River meets D’Entrecasteaux Channel lays Port Huon, a small community at the heart of the fertile Huon Valley with its Hartz Mountains backdrop. The sheltered waters of the river enable a visit to the Wooden Boat Center at Franklin where Tasmania’s maritime heritage is kept alive through the production of hand-crafted timber boats. Hike the Luggabone Track at Bruny Island’s Labillardiere Peninsula or see the bronze whale statue against the crystal clear waters of Cockle Creek at Becherche Bay.
