Freycinet and Three Capes fly-and-cruise
EXPLORE Tasmania's FREYCINET AND TASMAN PENINSULAS WITH OUR exclusive FLy-AND-CRUISE PACKAGE
There’s no better way to take-in the wonders of our beautiful east coast than a fully-packaged all-day experience from the air and the sea.
You’ll enjoy a spectacular morning scenic flight from Hobart to Freycinet Peninsula, then join Schouten Passage II – a comfortable, well-appointed cruiser – for a journey of discovery through Freycinet National Park’s stunning coastline from Coles Bay to Wineglass Bay. A tasty lunch and refreshments are served on-board as you take-in the sights.
In the afternoon, we re-board our aircraft and take in the incredible views of The Hazards range and Wineglass Bay as we head south toward the Tasman Peninsula.
You’ll be enthralled by the many natural and historic wonders as we explore Tasman National Park from the air, including the spectacular Three Capes and Port Arthur.

This is a specialised, boutique tourism experience. Our groups generally range from a minimum of two persons up to a maximum of nine persons on any given day.
The cruise vessel seats up to 150 guests.
The vessel Schouten Passage II is a Tasmanian built, 150 seat catamaran ideal for exploring the east coast of Tasmania. The spacious enclosed vessel contains comfortable seating across two fully air conditioned lounge areas.
Our guests will enjoy the Vista Lounge with floor to ceiling windows for optimum viewing from the comfort of your seat, complemented by spacious outdoor decks so you can immerse yourself in the experience.
The Vista Lounge has a licensed bar and cafe serving local beverages, hot drinks and treats for purchase. There are three rest rooms, with one fully accessible.
We can’t guarantee the wildlife you’ll see on any given day, however the waters surrounding Freycinet National Park are home to diverse and remarkable wildlife. Keep a look out for sea eagles roosting on the granite cliffs, pods of dolphins surfing the bow wave and cormorants manning the crags of Schouten Passage plus Australian fur seals hauling out along the coast.
Join in the search for whales such as the humpback and southern right as they migrate between September to December and May to July.
Spot diverse birdlife including albatross, shearwaters, diving gannets, little penguins and cormorants.

Your safety and enjoyment of this experience is our top priority. Our pilots and guides regularly assess the weather forecast and conditions in the lead-up to this experience. If the weather is not compatible for the flights, or the cruise becomes unavailable, we will provide you with options to reschedule your booking to another day (subject to availability), or provide you with a full refund.
For the cruise part of the tour, if weather conditions mean we are unable to safely get to Wineglass Bay, well take our alternative route which we think is as spectacular as the Wineglass Bay route, exploring the rugged coastline of the Schouten Island Group, its abundant wildlife including a large Australian fur seal haul out.
Amendments and cancellations are possible subject to our terms and conditions. We’ll be as flexible as we can to accommodate your needs.
