Iron Pot Cruises

A 2½ Hour Cruise from Hobart's Waterfront

Iron Pot Cruises is a 2½ hour cruise exploring the renowned waterways that influence Hobart's lifestyle. Visit Australia's oldest lighthouse, circumnavigate Betsey Island and discover the city's rich maritime past.

Travel aboard one of our brand new vessels in a small group of up to 12 passengers. The spacious enclosed cabin contains comfortable leather seats. Large awning windows provide a great view and allow you to immerse yourself in the surroundings.

Cruising down the Derwent River you'll pass historic Battery Point, now one of Tasmania's premium residential addresses. You'll see well-known landmarks like the iconic Wrest Point Casino and the Shot Tower. Further south, you'll truly appreciate the scale of Mount Wellington as it towers over the city.

Arrive at the Iron Pot, Australia's oldest lighthouse, and be immersed in the fascinating history as your guide shares stories of Hobart's early settlement.
