You'll then cruise across the Derwent River to the Eastern Shore, Bellerive, and Kangaroo Bluff, before travelling under the Tasman Bridge. You'll head back via the Royal Botanic Garden and Government House. The boat trip will take about 1.5 hours, with the captain providing an interesting live commentary to tell you what to look out for. Onboard, you'll enjoy a one-course meal.

Great excursion around the Harbor both north and south The lounge upstairs was comfy if not a bit worn The Captain’s dialogue was informative even though the sound system cut in and out a bit. The crew were very attentive . The food was basic but quite eatable. Perfect time on the water returning at 2.15pm

This is was not wheelchair accessible at all. You need to remove the wheelchair accessible symbol. There are large steps on either side of the “ramp” between the boat and the dock. It was not accessible at all, we had to get a refund on site after planning our entire day around this. Please update the listing to remove ‘wheelchair accessible’
