Derwent River Private Harbour Cruise on the 'Odalisque' from Hobart


Start your cruise with pickup at the pre-arranged waterfront location in Hobart. Whether your group numbers 14 people or 40, you can create an itinerary for a memorable Tasmanian cruise. Your private charter can last from three to eight hours, depending on your choice when booking. Three hours is recommended for a lunch or evening cruise. If you want to travel further down the channel and see more of the Tasmanian coastline, you can book a 5-hour cruise. Or make it a full-day cruise to visit Bruny Island. There, you could have lunch in a private bay, snorkel and swim at a secluded beach, and sip drinks on the deck during the return voyage. You can also book a charter between Hobart and destination in Storm Bay and D’Entrecasteaux. The boat has an onboard bar with an extensive menu of Tasmanian wines, local beers and cider, and a fully equipped kitchen is available. You can consult with the chef to design a menu to suit any occasion—from simple, hearty food platters to a gourmet menu of Tasmanian delights. Food and beverages are available at an additional expense by arrangement with your local tour operator. Your tour ends with return to your starting location.
