Itinerary

Day 1 –

Arrive at Islington for a 2pm check-in and either enjoy a relaxing night in, joining our resident chef Jonathan for an intimate dinner, or let us book you in to experience one of Hobart’s foodie hotspots!

Day 2 –

Enjoy Islington’s fully cooked, locally sourced breakfast including; our famous Islington Muesli, sourdough breads, housemade baked beans, pancakes, eggs benedict, smoked salmon…we could go on…the perfect start to an action packed day!

Be transferred from Islington to Hobart Waterfront for a 9am departure on a custom-built boat, seating a maximum of 12 guests.

Here your journey begins amongst the fishing boats moored at Constitution Dock, in the heart of Hobart’s vibrant waterfront. You’ll be part of a small group of up to 10 guests, and accompanied by Rob Pennicott’s experienced local guides.

As you pull away from the docks, you’ll leave city life behind. Settle back, relax and admire the diverse scenery as you cruise down the Derwent River, into the sheltered waters of the D’Entrecasteaux Channel that surround Bruny Island.

This unspoilt paradise is home to Tasmania’s finest seafood. As you weave your way along Bruny Island’s coast, you’ll help your guide to gather oysters, mussels, sea urchin and abalone from the pristine waters. Pull a crayfish at the southern tip of the island, and catch a fish, before dropping anchor in a calm, secluded bay where you can help your guide skilfully prepare and serve your seafood bounty onboard the boat.

Nowhere else in the world is there a journey like this – and you can’t get Tasmanian seafood any fresher. Your catch is part of an extensive lunch of the finest gourmet produce – abalone, crayfish, oysters, sashimi, sea urchin, salmon and mussels accompanied by local wine, beers, ciders and juices.

Your guides know these waters intimately. They’ve grown up in this wilderness environment, with its picturesque landscapes and beautiful deserted beaches. Throughout the day they’ll provide an entertaining insight into the surrounding landscapes and animals. Such local knowledge only comes from spending years in and around these clean blue waters.

On your return to the Hobart waterfront you will be transferred back to Islington, where you can spend a quiet night in, with your feet up and even enjoy a light supper room service if you like and a long, well deserved hot bath!
