Sea & Explore Wineglass Bay & Freycinet National Park – Cruise & Walk

Hobart, Tasmania

Being the original and most experienced tour operator in the region, Wineglass Bay Tours have the greatest depth of knowledge, experience and rapport with the local communities.
Our guides are truly locals. Tasmanians who love sharing our beautiful island home with visitors and sharing not only the secrets and tales of the East Coast, but also sharing more information about Tasmania in general, including what it is like to live in such a remote, natural part of the world.
The Sea & Explore Tour provides the best of both worlds. You get a beautiful cruise on the crystal clear waters of the Freycinet National Park and you also get to explore the shore on foot, but without having to hike up and down any mountains.
Escape the crowds by accessing more remote and secluded areas in the National Park.

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Raspins Beach, Tasman Highway, Orford, Tasmania 3284 Australia

One of our first stops on the tour is at the peaceful seaside town of Orford, where we stroll along Raspins Beach, learning about the local history and current events of this region.
Discover Tasmania’s wild oysters washed up on the sand, look for a hermit crab hiding in the shells on the beach, admire the seabirds or perhaps the local dolphins.
Maria Island is clearly visible across the water and your Local Guide will tell you all about the exciting past, present and future of the island.
Our stop here isn’t long, but it is always pleasurable and sets the scene for the rest of our fun day up the coast.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Bark Mill Museum, Shop 1 96 Tasman Hwy, Swansea, Tasmania 7190 Australia

This is your chance to buy yourself some lunch food and take it away for later in the day when you are on Wineglass Be Beach.
We will stop here for 15-20mins so feel free to also grab a coffee/tea and a light snack, use the bathrooms, etc.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Coles Bay, Coles Bay, Freycinet, Glamorgan-Spring Bay, Tasmania

We will drop you off at the pier/jetty in Coles Bay where you will board the Aqua Taxi. When you return from the beaches in the afternoon you will have about 20-30 minutes to explore Coles Bay at your leisure.

Stop At: Freycinet National Park, Coles Bay Road, Coles Bay, Freycinet, Tasmania 7215 Australia

Be amazed by the shorline, mountains and scenery of Freycinet National Park as you glide across the crystal clear water aboard the Aqua Taxi.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Hazards Beach, Coles Bay, Freycinet, Tasmania Australia

As you step off the Aqua Taxi onto the pristine white sand of Hazards Beach you will know you have arrived at a very special place. This remote area of the Freycinet National Park is far far away from the large bustling crowds that drive into the park and hike up to the Wineglass Bay Lookout.
Hazards Beach is nice and shallow. A great swimming beach and because it faces out into Great Oyster Bay rather than the Tasman Sea, the water here is considerably warmer than the water at Wineglass Bay Beach.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Wineglass Bay, Freycinet rd, Coles Bay, Freycinet, Tasmania Australia

A short, flat and easy 30 minute walk will see yo arrive at Wineglass Bay Beach, once of the most highly voted and regarded Wilderness Beaches in the WORLD!
Wineglass Bay is the jewel of Tasmania, an absolute iconic destination and many people only ever see it from up on the neraby Hazards Mountains due to the huge amount of hkking normally required to access the beach.
You are one of the lucky ones… you got here without even breaking a sweat!
Enjoy the luxury of having far more time at the beach than most visitors ever get. Walk the length of the beach, explore the rocky shores at either end, swim in the crystal clear blue water, it is up to you.
Your only commitment is to allow enough time to walk back to Hazards Beach for your 2:30pm cruise back to Coles Bay

Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Stop At: Coles Bay Jetty, Coles Bay, Freycinet, Tasmania Australia

After anther scenic 30 minute cruise across Great Oyster Bay from Hazards Beach to Coles Bay, you will disembark and be free to enjoy and explore Coles Bay for 20-30 minutes.
