Know More about this tour

Meet your two expert guides and travel companions at Franklin Wharf on Hobart’s historic waterfront. After a brief introduction and safety talk, step aboard the custom-built boat, equipped with a spacious enclosed cabin, comfortable leather seats, and large windows for excellent viewing.

Leave the city behind for a trip along the waterways of Hobart. Admire spectacular scenery as you glide down the Derwent River into the sheltered waters of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel around Bruny Island. Throughout the day, your guide shares extensive knowledge of the region, informed by years of experience in and around these waters.

Your first destination is a salmon farm where thousands of salmon are raised in large pens along the coast. There is an opportunity to taste the salmon, prepared on board three ways ultra-fresh sashimi-style, hot smoked and cold smoked. Continue on to an oyster farm where you will help your guide haul up a net of oysters. Slurp the succulent, salty oysters straight from the shell.

Cruise to a secluded bay where your boat drops anchor, take a look around at the pristine surroundings; enjoy the clear blue water, clean air, deserted beaches and beautiful bays. Here, your guide will jump into the water to hunt for ocean gems; abalone and sea urchins. If it seems like something you could do, think again: Licenses are required to catch these critters, and this tour is one of the only ways you'll get to see firsthand how it's done.

Back on board the boat watch as your guide prepares the ocean bounty that you have gathered. Try rock lobster prepared two ways, cooked and sashimi style, along with delicious seafood dishes cooked up on the spot. The meal is accompanied by a gourmet spread of fresh local breads, salads and artisan cheeses, and matched with premium wines, boutique beer, ciders and locally-made organic juices.

  • The tour is great!
    I am the only one joining the tour on the day, but they still operate the tour, I appreciate this. They offered everything suppose to be included in the tour. As you can imagine, the service is very personalized. They have two guides for the tour so I think the service level will still very high for the normal tour size.
    The seafood are great, well prepared. The oyster fresh and cooked, salmon smoked and sashimi, sea urchins, lobster cooked and sashimi and abalone cooked and sashimi, all of them tasted good, I just hope that I can eat more.
    In additional to the seafood, they also show the scene and the animal like seals, eagle, etc around.
    Yes, the tour is expensive, but I really enjoy the day. I am happy that I have joined the tour

  • I believe a must do for those who enjoy seafood and like the water. Well handled and extremely efficient, a great experience and I can only recommend as I already have done.


  • I had the most amazing dining experience of my life on the Tasmanian seafood gourmet lunch cruise. Our guides were friendly and knowledgeable, and they certainly knew how to cook! The views of the Tasman cliffs, and Butler's beach, along with some of the cleanest air in the world, made for an absolutely perfect day. If you are on the fence about taking this tour, do not be deterred by the price. You will be treated to some of the best seafood in the world.
