Head out on an epic journey to visit one of Australia’s most unique and unusual islands – the flat and rugged Tasman Island – on an amazing full day tour including an unforgettable three hour Tasman Island cruise. The full day tour will take you from Hobart aboard a bus to then join your wilderness guides and board a purpose-built high-speed boat engineered for maximum stability.

You will embark on a trip to view the home of the highest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere. Known for its array of sea caves and towering rock formations, Tasman Island is home to a range of impressive wildlife and on this tour you’ll be able to get up close with hundreds of seals, spot dolphins in the waters, and witness thousands of seabirds ranging from falcons to the massive albatross swooping through the skies.

The huge, flat island is one of the most remarkable sights in the ocean, and your experienced guides will provide interesting and entertaining commentary on the geography and history of how Tasman Island was used both past and present. This is set to be a day filled with beautiful sights and informative commentary about the region.

There are few places on Earth that blend animal life with incredible cliffs and geological wonders quite like Tasman Island, and you’ll have everything you need during this adventure to witness all its wonders firsthand.
