Port Davey Charter

Enquire now for 2024 - available February through March

Suitable for ages 12 to 80 by sea and all ages if travelling by air

For the experience of a lifetime book on one of our yacht charters to Port Davey on Tasmania’s rugged west coast.  Port Davey 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.

They are usually seven-day/six-night trips, but like all our journeys, they can be customised to suit your requirements. Typically they begin in Hobart, stopping over in Recherche Bay the first night before making our way around the Southern tip of Tasmania, sailing past the Maatsuyker Island group back in time to the vast pristine waterways of Port Davey and Bathurst Harbour.

It is impossible to describe just how unique and exciting this vast and spectacular wilderness destination is.  Bushwalking in the World Heritage National Park, the most isolated surf breaks, endless sheltered bays and inlets to explore by kayak, dive beneath the tea coloured freshwater surface to a marine environment normally only found at unreachable ocean depths, and a coastline as awe-inspiring as any you can imagine; the Port Davey region abounds with seafood for divers and fishermen (outside the park of course).  There are no cars, no roads … no shopping!


You can stay with us in Port Davey after flying or walking in and then fly or walk back out.  You can also begin or end your walking/flying tour of the area by sailing with us one way.  Due to the remoteness of the area it is recommended that small children, infants and those with health concerns, fly both ways.  You can fly in and meet us at the Melaleuca airstrip with Par Avion or land next to us on a sea plane with Above and Beyond.  If you would like to find out more about these options, please press the Enquire button below.
