Tasmania's (if not Australia's) most spectacular day sea kayaking tour

Get up-close and personal with the southern hemisphere’s highest sea cliffs and resident Australian fur seals.

This exhilarating adventure will have you kayaking along the coast of the Tasman National Park towards Cape Hauy, a star feature of Tasmania’s newest world-class hike - the Three Capes Track.

At sea level you’ll truly appreciate the scale of Australia’s highest sea cliffs, gazing up at 200-metre-high fluted rock formations, peering into natural sea caves, photographing the towering Candlestick, and searching for climbers on the Totem Pole - a sheer column famed amongst thrill-seeking rock climbers.

Enjoy our gourmet Tasmanian lunch at a deserted cove, paddle over a semi-submerged shipwreck and marvel at the abundant marine wildlife that lives along this coast, including resident fur seals, soaring sea eagles, diving gannets, cliff-nesting cormorants, peregrine falcons, and if we’re lucky - a pod of dolphins or a migrating whale.


PHYSICAL REQUIREMENTS: While kayaking experience is not necessary this tour can be physically demanding and you do need to be able to paddle for up to five hours (we do stop for snacks, drinks, photos, lunch and just to enjoy the view though!). If you are unsure if this paddle is suitable for you, please contact us or check out our Hobart's Cliffs, Caves and Beaches full-day paddle.  Not recommended for children under 16.


WEATHER: We believe Fortescue Bay offers one of the best day paddling locations in Australia, but it is exposed to swell and strong winds in adverse weather conditions. If the weather is not suitable on the day you book we will call you the day prior and offer you the choice of another day, a different paddle in more protected waters or a full refund.
