Discover a spectacular coastline of azure waters, sparkling beaches and dramatic sea cliffs

On this intimate and immersive expedition, cruise past magnificent mountains and call into secluded beaches en route to national parks, historic sites and peninsulas. Encounter fluffy lawnmowers (aka wombats) on Maria Island, climb the granite-capped peaks of Freycinet National Park or take a guided clifftop bushwalk.

World-heritage listed Maria Island
Maria Island National Park is a haven for wombats, wallabies and Tasmanian devils. Head ashore for a stroll to the patterned Painted Cliffs via the historic convict settlement, or beachcomb along the island’s long, sandy isthmus.

Tasman Peninsula’s soaring sea cliffs
Cruise between the 300m dolerite towers of Cape Pillar, the tallest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, and rugged Tasman Island. Hike to dizzying heights on the Cape Hauy clifftop walk. Search for seals, dolphins, migrating whales and sea birds.

Secluded beaches of Freycinet
Ashore and afloat, explore the pristine white beaches, turquoise waters and pink-granite peaks of the Freycinet Peninsula. Wineglass Bay’s beauty is world-renowned - we celebrate the lesser-known coves and corners too.

Be guided by local experts
Head into the wilderness with our all-star crew. From the skipper, to the host and the hand-picked expert guides, our talented and passionate team are the heart of this unforgettable experience. Their intimate knowledge of Tasmania will connect people to place. Plus, they’re funny and love to share a story (or three).
Expeditions are based from a ‘floating boutique hotel’, the Odalisque, a brand-new custom-built vessel with just six cabins. Guests are entertained by an all-star crew, including skipper, host, chef & guide. Our specialist chefs (borrowed from Hobart’s top restaurants) provide top-notch Tasmanian fare, all paired with fine Tasmanian wine. Our hand-picked expert guides (with years of experience in the area) will double as your personal walking encyclopaedias. Daily shore excursions, tailored to your interests, will see you totally immersed in all the east coast has to offer. It’s all about “getting your feet wet” (as skipper & owner Pieter van der Woude regularly says). During your unforgettable time with us, experience the tallest sea cliffs in the Southern Hemisphere, cruise past magnificent mountains and call into secluded beaches as we explore national parks, historic sites and peninsulas.

Odalisque III

Vessel Type: Catamaran

Length: 24 metres

Passenger Capacity: 12

Built: 2022

Brand-New Expedition Catamaran

Purpose-built in 2022 for an intimate wilderness experience in Tasmanian waters, the vessel houses just 12 guests in its six stylish cabins. Aboard there are two spacious guest lounges, three outdoor viewing decks and an open bridge – all with magnificent water aspects. Go beyond your comfort zone without giving up your creature comforts, on Odalisque III.

Tender Vessels

Daily tender excursions are made aboard our two tenders – 15ft aluminum dinghies which we affectionately call ‘tinnies’. These twin tinnies are versatile, safe and fast vessels. They’re well suited to handling the weather conditions of Tasmanian waters, which can change quickly, and have comfortable, stable seating. These tenders are ideal for exploring rocky inlets and sea caves, due to their maneuverability and easy handling.

Our tinnies were built to handle the best (and worst) of Tasmania’s wind, rain and waves. So that our guests too can head out whatever the weather, On Board provides weatherproof rain ponchos for all tender excursions.
