Vista LoungeMost Popular
Perfect for all ages! Experience the exquisite beauty of the Freycinet Peninsula on board the Schouten Passage II and delicious Ploughmans lunch served at anchor in Wineglass Bay.
Sky Lounge
Suited for adult travelers only, the Sky Lounge offers privacy, comfort, direct access to the bridge, stunning views from the top deck, a private guide, complimentary drinks and oysters.
Get views of Wineglass Bay and Tasmania's Freycinet Peninsula from the deck of a boat on this half-day cruise. Sit back, relax, and watch for humpback whales, dolphins, and sea eagles—sights you may not catch on a traditional land-based tour. Dig in to an included ploughman's lunch while cruising past white-sand beaches, snapping photos of the rugged sea cliffs, and learning about the region through live commentary.
What to Expect
Step aboard a catamaran and find a comfortable spot on board to take in the scenery of Wineglass Bay and the Freycinet Peninsula. The catamaran features both indoor and outdoor seating and floor-to-ceiling windows, so there's not a bad seat in the house. And, the cruise can proceed no matter the weather. Views of both of these natural areas are best enjoyed from on the water, not to mention the possibility of getting up close with local whales, dolphins, and sea birds.

The boat will drop anchor amid the natural scenery and serve a ploughman's lunch, consisting of local produce, such as salmon, cheese, and chocolate. Step up to the cash bar for beverages and cool-climate wines.

As you travel, listen to live commentary about the local environment, flora, and fauna, learning much more about Wineglass Bay than you would by simply exploring on your own.

Out-of-the-world experience! Saw multiple animals and the crew gave a detailed explanation of each sites we went past. We went into the open sea and that's when the cruise started bouncing violently, like a bloody roller-coaster. We were allowed to stay in the bow as...More

We had a reasonably smooth ride. You go along the coast line. Lunch is in Wineglass Bay. Very calm. Suggest upstairs. Best to check weather before you cruise.

I get seasick myself, but on stable boats like this, I don't even bother to take my preferred Travelcalm. If you are severely prone to seasickness, take your preferred sea-sickness tablet before you board. Looking regularly... More
