Embark 9am at Palm Beach, Pittwater on December 26th 2017 for a unique 2-week small-ship cruise of a lifetime to Tasmania’s southern wilderness.

The first leg of your journey aboard the 72-passenger, Coral Discoverer is a 6-night Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race special, followed by a 7-night discovery cruise of Tasmania’s south and east coast wilderness areas.

Cruise past Barrenjoey Headland along Sydney’s Northern Beaches to just off North Head, for a grand stand view of the race start, before trailing the yachts on a scenic coastal cruise to Hobart. On board, enjoy expert commentary and legends from on-board lecturer, John Longley AM, a celebrated veteran of five America’s Cup campaigns.

Visit Jervis Bay and Twofold Bay en-route and once across Bass Strait, explore the magical Tasmanian coast with Coral Discoverer’s guided shore excursions, by zodiac, hiking or kayak, as conditions permit.

Arrive into Hobart on New Year’s Eve, to join the festivities of race presentations and the launch of Tasmania’s summer Taste festival. Return to the Coral Discoverer for a special New Year’s Eve captain’s dinner and to enjoy the festivities from our prime harbour viewing point.

On January 1st, set sail on the second leg of your journey, a 7-night discovery cruise to Tasmania’s southern wilderness areas to experience

  • Vestiges of Tasmania’s indigenous, maritime, penal and pioneering heritage
  • Pristine waters, ancient forests, secret coves and rugged dolomite crags
  • Abundant and unique wildlife – both at sea and on land
  • Tasmania’s World Heritage wilderness area, unreachable by land, destination remote Port Davey.

Your ship for the 2-week sailing is the recently refurbished and state-of-the-art, Coral Discoverer. Upgrades to the latest technology ensures comfortable cruising in open waters and her shallow draught and manoeuvrability allow her an unmatched ability to enter the bays and inlets of Tasmania’s rugged coastline.

At meal times, you will enjoy an outstanding menu of fresh Tasmanian produce, complemented by a specially curated wine list featuring some of Tasmania’s finest varietals.
