Hobart Tasman Island Cruises

Located off the south-eastern tip of the windswept Tasman Peninsula, Tasman Island is home to Australia’s highest operational lighthouse and marks the final stretch of the iconic Sydney to Hobart yacht race. This formidable island in the Tasman Sea is also a breeding sanctuary for Fairy Prions and a nurturing haven for whales and other marine life. It’s a hidden jewel within the Tasman National Park and is easily accessible on a Tasman Island cruise.

We have listed the most popular Tasman Island cruises – from a short wilderness cruise to full day tours. On a Tasman wilderness cruise, you’ll drift up close to the highest vertical sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, passing by surreal rock formations, cascading waterfalls and hidden sea caves. 

Nearby lies the World-Heritage listed Port Arthur Historic Site, which you can explore on select Tasman Island tours from Hobart that includes an entry ticket to this iconic site. Alternatively, choose a package combining a scenic cruise with a visit to the famous Tasmanian Devil Unzoo, or a full-day tour featuring local sightseeing on the island. 

So, whether it’s a Tasman cruise to Port Arthur or a wilderness cruise along the island’s coastline, we have just the right option for you. Book your Tasman Island tour today!
