Day Sails

Join us for a relaxing sail along the Derwent River aboard Tasmania's largest tall ship. There is no better way to experience the charming beauty of Hobart than from the water. Enjoy the sound of the waves lapping at the hull, feast on our prized local cheeses, have a siesta in the sun or shade, take photos of the local wildlife -- if you're lucky, you'll see a dolphin or whale!

Important reminders:

  • If you are catching a flight the day of your sail, please advise at time of booking so we can be sure to get you back on time!!

  • If you have any food allergies or dietary restrictions, please advise at time of booking.

  • Children age 14 and under must be accompanied by an adult, with one adult per child, unless by permission from the Captain.

What to wear:

For the most comfortable experience, we recommend wearing layers, even when the weather is meant to be warm. The temperature is always several degrees cooler on the water than on land, and locals know that Tassie's weather can change in an instant. If you choose to bring a hat, please make sure it can attach securely to your head!

Cancellation Policy

It is rare that we ever cancel a sail.  However, in some extreme cases we may have to cancel for issues related to weather or the functioning of the ship.  In these cases, a full refund will be issued to each customer booked on the canceled sail, minus any applicable online booking fee (normally $.30/ticket).  Please note that we do NOT issue refunds for bookings canceled by the customer.
