Full description
The cruise travels beneath the highest vertical sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere at Cape Pillar. Guests explore waterfalls, rock formations, archways and deep-sea caves.

The coastline is part of the Tasman National Park. It is home to a variety of wildlife including hundreds of seals, migrating whales and abundant sea birds in their thousands.

At any time of year you're likely to see the feeding frenzy of diving gannets, albatross and sea eagles wheeling on the wind, cliff-nesting cormorants and peregrine falcons, or a pod of playful dolphins surfing the bow wave of the boat.

The custom built yellow boats are ideal for viewing the spectacular coastline and wildlife of the Tasman Peninsula. Each vessel holds a maximum of 43 guests. Covered open-air tiered seating means an excellent all-round view and connection with the environment. The boats are safe, comfortable and gentle on the environment due to their fuel efficiency and low emission operation.

This is a professional but friendly outfit! Fabulous scenery Accessed by their nifty boats which took us right up close to seals, arches, dolphins, sea cliffs, caves etc. A pod of dolphins playing at the boats’ bows entertained us on the trip home! Excellent commentary kept us interested and informed over the 4 hours. Thank goodness for their gortex ponchos which protected us from the Antartica winds. Money well spent on this fabulous experience!

Highly Recommended! The team in the office and on board are very nice and friendly.. The tour itself was incredible with amazing views of the high cliffs on one side and the open ocean on the other. As for wildlife, we saw the seals miding their own business *#Amazing*!! We did not see dolphins as in the picture (maybe not the season), however, we were very lucky to see a Whale jumping out of the watet, it was a bit far for a goo phoyo capyure, but we still could see it clearly. *#Awesome*!! So bring your zoom able cameras.

Highlight of our trip

So glad we decided to go on this tour. Great to see the coastline from another angle and the cliffs, wildlife and staff were amazing. Very friendly and informative tour and encouraged you to move around the boat to get the best views. Just allow more time than 3 hrs as we were at the office at 9.15am and didn’t return until approx 1pm.
