Depart Hobart by seaplane and venture to the wild and beautiful Southwest Wilderness. Enjoy 45 minutes of spectacular scenery by air as we pass over the Huon Valley, Western Arthurs, Federation Peak and enter the remote wilderness of the Southwest National Park. Landing on the pristine waters of Bathurst Harbour, you will be transferred to the vessel ‘Odalisque’, a 5-star charter boat situated in Bathurst Harbour, operated by Tasmanian Boat Charters.
Your expert guide, who knows everything there is to know about the landscape, history, plants and wildlife in the area, will take you on private cruise on Odalisque’s tender vessel into the Port Davey Marine Reserve and through Bathurst Harbour’s myriad of waterways. This magnificent area is only accessible by seaplane or boat, and it forms part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area with good reason. Your guide will explore all this and more with you.
Lunch will be provided in the form of a gourmet hamper inclusive of some of the best Tasmanian produce and wine, served onboard Odalisque.
Returning to civilisation, our seaplane will take you home via the coastal route. You’ll be able to soak up the epic scenery of the rugged and wild Southwest coastline, and spy Bruny Island and Mt Wellington as we fly up the Derwent River before landing in the middle of Hobart’s iconic waterfront.
