Know About the Tasman Island Cruise

We all might have heard that there’s more to this magic isle Tasmania than just nature & scenery. From great hiking to mountain biking, surfing, fishing, golfing, cruising, art, history, modern art museums, food, beaches, sanctuaries, wine yards, Tasmania is definitely an any-season destination.

Tasman Island is separated from the tip of Cape Pillar on the Tasman Peninsula & rises almost 300 meters above the sea. It is one of those places where you get to travel to the base of the tallest vertical sea cliffs at Cape Pillar, explore deep-sea caves, admire waterfalls, rock formations, and see wildlife.

If you are looking to add a bit of adventure to your trip to Tasmania, then the Tasman Island Cruise would be a great choice. The Tasman Island Cruise travels along the coastline of the Tasman National Park between Port Arthur and Eaglehawk Neck.

Here are things you need to know about the Tasman Island Cruise:

1) Tasman Island Cruises provides an unforgettable 3-hour wilderness trip along the spectacular coastline between Port Arthur and Eaglehawk Neck. The cruise has basically covered open-air tiered seating which is safe, comfortable and gives an excellent all-round view and connection with nature.

2) The scenic speedboat cruise travel starts from the highest vertical sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere at Cape Pillar. Perched atop the island is situated one of Australia’s most inaccessible light stations which even had lighthouse keepers and their family settlements years ago. But now, the lighthouse is still operational but the settlement has long been abandoned.

3) Along the ride you get to see the rugged coastline, massive sheer cliffs, jagged dolerite columns, small rocky islands, pillars, inside sea caves, etc. all lure the camera lens. At each point, the cruise is rotated slowly, so that people on each side get the turn of a good view.

4) Tasman Island is the home to a variety of wildlife including seals, southern right whales, humpback whales, killer whales, bottlenose dolphins, albatross, giant petrels, peons, shearwaters, fairy penguins, Australasian gannets, gulls, sea eagles, falcons, blue-fin tuna, mako sharks, sunfish and much more.

5) The waterfall at Waterfall Bay is another beauty to watch on this island which stays steady and appears like a thin stream of water at the top of the cliffs & broadens to a curtain of water as it falls down to the sea.

6) Next is the amazing view of one of the most famous two sea stacks, the Candlestick and Totem amazing which look like a giant pipe organ. They are 110m and 60m respectively and rock climbers from around the world come over to scale these two pillars.


There are several amazing experiences that Tasman Island cruise travel has to offer. So take your pick and spend a thrilling three hours with Tasman Island Cruises exploring the spectacular waterfalls, rock formations, giant archways, hidden sea caves, sea life and some migrant birds.
