The Peppermint Bay Lunch Cruise from Hobart
Explore River Derwent and Peppermint Bay on this half-day cruise from Hobart. Listen to your captain and guide for in-depth information about the area and its animal inhabitants, such as dolphins that often swim alongside the boat. Cruise through the D’Entrecasteaux Channel to end up at the Peppermint Bay Hotel, where you will stop for an included waterside lunch.

Travel down to the River Derwent and through the D’Entrecasteaux Channel, where dolphins will often accompany the boat. Listen to your guide's commentary about the area's culture, history, and environment to learn much more than you would on your own.
