On this 2-hour boat trip, we take you along the impressive coastline of Tasman National Park between Eaglehawk Neck and Cape Hauy, part of the new ‘Three Capes Track’ to see whales and rare seabirds.
With our small, adventure-style vessel, we can nose deep into colourful caves and get you within a whisker-length of cute fur seals.
Look out for rare seabirds, fins or blows. Dolphins and albatrosses are a common sight on our trips. Southern Right and Humpback whales migrate past our coastline between the months of June and December.
If there is a chance to see something special, we’re always up for a detour to give you the best photo opportunities and to make your time with us an unforgettable one!

Wild Ocean TasmaniaWild Ocean Tasmania is a small, couple-owned & operated business.
The idea of WOT evolved through our passion for the Ocean, wildlife and the ecosystem that supports us.
Our aim is to reconnect people with our natural environment and to raise understanding for the value of protecting the worlds coastal zones.
We are at a time in history in which we are witnessing the collapse of whole ecosystems. Many species become extinct every single day.
Social FocusWe use part of our profit to raise and rehabilitate native wildlife in our free time and to donate to local wildlife carers. After our Seal & Ocean Expedition, our guests usually get to see one of our wildlife orphans (animals health permitting) and learn about roadkill in Tasmania.
On our journey, we discovered that one cannot be an ‘environmentalist’ and consume animal products at the same time, since animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gas emissions than the entire transportation sector, let alone the deforestation, water usage and animal cruelty. Therefore, we only serve vegan food and drinks on our tours.
Our office is set in a recycled, 100% solar powered shipping container. We consciously chose to run Honda motors (leader in environmentally responsible technology). Our carbon emissions are offset with 20 acres of biodiverse Tasmanian forest that also provides habitat for native wildlife.
Our boat tours are single-use plastic free. We regularly pick up plastic, fishing gear and other human-caused debris out of the Ocean.
Most importantly, we take our guests to stunning natural sites that can only be reached by boat and encourage an ethical interaction with the precious marine life we encounter in the hope to raise awareness for the importance of the protection of these amazing animals, our natural environment and ultimately ourselves.
