Christmas is just around the corner and we are offering a unique opportunity for adventure lovers to experience the thrill of the ocean. On the 28th of December we will be sailing to the Tasman Peninsula, home to Port Arthur, The Three Capes and iconic Tasman Island.
3-hour morning, afternoon or twilight cruise on the wonderful Derwent River. The charter involves sailing on one of the largest and most beautiful natural harbours in the world, with spectacular views of Hobart and Mt Wellington.
This full-day skippered yacht charter is a magnificent way to absorb the beauty of the Derwent River! Depending on the weather, this 8-hour cruise will take you to the end of the Derwent River and out into Storm Bay or the more sheltered waters of D'entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island. The return trip will see you following the Sydney to Hobart yacht race route, crossing the finishing line before berthing at King's Pier Marina.
This yacht charter combines the pleasure of two full days sailing, adventure and exploration with an overnight stay onboard Helsal IV in luxury airconditioned/heated cabins. The best of Tasmanian fare is provided for all meals and refreshments.
These are usually four-day/three-night yacht charters, but like all our cruises, they can be customised to suit your requirements. After departing from Hobart we usually overnight at the historic convict settlement of Port Arthur. The next day we sail past giant vertical cliffs that plunge straight into the depths of the Southern Ocean before rounding spectacular Tasman Island.
For the memory of a lifetime book on one of our yacht charters to Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour on Tasmania’s rugged west coast. The area is a Marine Reserve and part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and the South West National Park. This journey will change your life.
Be a part of the crew (as active as you want to be) in a real yacht race onboard a luxurious racing yacht. Twilight yacht races on the Derwent River are a magnificent tradition in Hobart; be a part of it and get your heart racing too.
Two identical 62 foot luxury ocean racer/cruisers slug it out on the Derwent River following the last leg of the Sydney to Hobart yacht race. Sail aboard a veteran of three Sydney to Hobart races, Helsal IV, or Magic Miles.
