The best of both worlds!

Access Wineglass Bay by boat and then explore Freycinet National Park on foot; This entertaining and informative tour from Hobart to Wineglass Bay offers maximum beach time (2+ hrs) and saves you hiking up hills.

Our Wineglass Bay tour departs from Hobart, heading east then following the Great Eastern Drive north. We’ll travel through the seaside towns of Orford, Triabunna and Swansea as we make our way along the East Coast of Tasmania towards the Freycinet National Park. We’ll stop briefly along the way to take in some of the local highlights such as Raspins Beach (Orford), and The Bark Mill (Swansea).
When we arrive at Coles Bay, you will board the Freycinet Adventures Aqua Taxi and enjoy an awe-inspiring cruise from Coles Bay to Hazards Beach. On the way, you’ll be amazed by the spectacular red granite shoreline and the incredible wildlife that call it their home. A large variety of sea birds reside in the area including White bellied sea eagles, the icon of Freycinet National Park. Be sure to have your cameras ready as you are also likely to share the sea with Australian Fur Seals, inquisitive local dolphins and maybe even a whale or two!
The skipper of the Aqua Taxi will assist you to disembark directly onto the pristine white sands of Hazards Beach, which might require you to get your feet wet, but once you see the the crystal clear blue waters of the beach, you won’t have any hesitation in wanting to get your feet into it! You’ll then be free for the next 2.5hrs to explore Hazards Beach, Wineglass Bay (30 min walk) and Freycinet National Park. At 2:30pm you will meet the Aqua Taxi on Hazards Beach and enjoy another incredible bvoat ride back to Coles Bay.
You will have approximately 30mins to explore the town of Coles Bay, grab yourself a snack or refreshment from the amazing local cafes and stores. We recommend the Tasmanian made ice-creams from the Coles Bay Ice-Creamery! Your tour guide will meet you in Coles Bay again to make our way back to Hobart. The drive home is usually spent sharing our experiences and tales with each other and celebrating our amazing day out. We’ll get you back at your accommodation around 6:30-7:00pm.

    5 star ratingThis is a great tour - beautiful scenery all round and loved the colours of the Bay.

    Very good to have met Geno - he is experienced, knows the area well and took good care of us. It is very good to see him so passionate about what he does as well as helping to keep the environment clean. He gave us really great commentary about the area and made us feel at ease with the group.

    Could not have asked for a better day out to explore Hobart - highly recommend this tour.

  • Most enjoyable day

    positive review Loved this tour and would recommend to everyone! My guide Phil was awesome and the Owner also took good care of me and helped me out cause one of my tour with another company got cancelled last minute.
    Wineglasstours never cancel a tour even if it has to become a private tour!
    The places you go are straight out from a postal card it’s sooo beautiful and I would go back for sure! Also, if this company had more tours I would trust them 100% and try them all ? Thanks for the wonderful day!
