ticketing was really easy. Boat was very comfortable and the skipper was friendly and very knowledable about the area. It was interesting to see different parts of the Derwent Estuary all the way to Iron Pot Lighthouse. My 2 American friends loved it.

Your experience will start from Pennicott Wilderness Journeys Booking Center situated on Franklin Wharf at Hobart’s waterfront. The brand new vessels can hold up to a maximum of 12 passengers. Outfitted with comfortable leather seats and massive windows, you can enjoy a fun cruise of the area. The cruise ship will go down the Derwent River and pass by the historic Battery Point, which is currently home to some of the rich and famous of Tasmania. You will pass by well-known attractions such as West Point Casino and the Shot Tower. Standing at nearly 60 meters in height, the uniquely tapered Shot Tower is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Tasmania. As you go more towards the south, Mount Wellington towers over the city and presents a stunning sight.

Finally, you will reach Iron Pot, the oldest lighthouse in all of Australia. Next up is Betsey Island, which is home to a diverse variety of seabirds, such as cormorants, gulls, and white-bellied sea eagles. As you loop around Betsey Island, you will see Hope Beach, famous for its offshore winds and large breaks.
