Overnight Charter

Suitable for all ages and available all year round

This skippered charter combines two exciting days sailing around the spectacular South East coast of Tasmania with an overnight stay onboard a 62-foot luxury ocean racer/cruiser in one of 2 double and 1 twin bunk cabins.  The best Tasmanian fare is provided for all meals and refreshments.  Tea, coffee and other non-alcoholic beverages are provided throughout the day and a selection of fine Tasmanian wines and beer is available with meals. 

The overnight anchorage will depend on the weather and the kind of daytime activities you wish to enjoy.  We typically overnight at either Port Arthur, Bruny Island or Recherche Bay.  All of these destinations are either in or on the edge of world class reserves. 

You can expect to see dolphins, seals and albatross, and whales during the migration seasons.  Activities include swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking, surfing, fishing, bushwalking, touring convict ruins, or just lazing about on the deck or strolling along one of the many brilliant white sandy beaches ... not to mention the thrill of sailing itself, even taking the helm (steering) if you like!

Departure times from the Hobart docks are flexible and bookings are essential. 

PRICES (all catering included, no more to pay):

$8200 plus $120 per adult and $80 per child (under 18yrs) for up to 6 passengers
