Wineglass Bay Cruises

YOU HAVEN’T SEEN FREYCINET UNTIL YOU’VE SEEN IT WITH WINEGLASS BAY CRUISES.
Experience the exquisite beauty of the Freycinet Peninsula on a Wineglass Bay cruise. Wineglass Bay is beautiful and remote, a place that few will ever visit. A shimmering crescent of white sand fringes the edge of a perfect turquoise sea.

The journey is no less spectacular; we will stop and let you gaze at the sheer granite cliffs, get up close to the wildlife and provide informative commentary on landmarks, wildlife and history. Your skipper will be in daily contact with local fisherman to ensure you get the best wildlife experience possible.

Enjoy a Tasmanian ploughman’s lunch at anchor in relaxed style. Taste local beverages and cool-climate wines in nature’s best wine bar in the wilderness. Your delicious lunch is a bento box full of fresh local produce such as salmon, cheeses and chocolate, prepared by Freycinet Lodge.

The Vista Lounge, offers comfortable indoor and spacious outdoor decks, whilst the Sky Lounge offers privacy, comfort and stunning views from the top deck. Both lounges offer personal service to make your cruise enjoyable.

You’ll see stunning scenery, abundant wildlife and a rare, intimate perspective of one of Tasmania’s most extraordinary places. To immerse yourself, book your cruise today.
