This three day, two night trip is an ideal taste of Tall Ships life while sailing around the beautiful South East of Tasmania.  Where will we go?  That really depends on the weather but options could include sailing around Bruny Island, Frederick Henry bay and Norfolk Bay.  If the wind is not too willing a bit of a sail around Storm Bay.  We could even get to Port Arthur (if the weather is ok to get there (and back). 

Towards evening we will find a scenic bay and anchor for the night.

What you do

You can climb the masts, furl and unfurl the sails, steer the ship, handle the lines, help out all round or watch the crew do it.  Most people who come away on our trips want to get involved in sailing the ship.  You do not have to go up the masts (unless you want to).  It will be entirely up to you how much you get involved in the sailing versus just enjoying Tassie's spectacular coast as it passes you by.  After dinner you may want to join in singing a sea shanty or two.

Physical Capabilities

While the physical demands of sailing can be as low as you want, you will need to able to move around a multi decked ship including 'going below' via ships ladders (a cross between stairs and a ladder). If you want to go ashore you need to climb into our ships tender (dingy) .If you are unsure, contact our office on 03 6234 3348 and we can provide advice.

Some reviews of the several day voyages

Forever Memory
14 Nov 2019 10:24 am
I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone who wants a forever memory. This is a marvellous experience on a beautiful tall ship with friendly but highly professional staff. The experience can be as energetic or relaxing as you prefer. We were taught to climb and participate in all the sail setting, if you were interested....and why not! The food portions were generous and tasty, the cook was a delight and went out of his way to cater to every need. There are little trips to usually inaccessible spots along the way. The wonderful captain decides which spots according to the weather at the time; he has safety and enjoyment of the passengers as his priority at all times. Sundowners and laughter is on the agenda for the evenings.

This was a two night trip and we had a great time onboard. Excellent food and there was plenty of it. A great crew, very friendly and very helpful if we wanted to try our hand at any of the ‘sailing jobs’. I took the chance to go aloft, learned how to make the sail ropes fast and tidy and thoroughly enjoyed every minute on board! Excellent value for money.

A wonderful experience, highly recommended.
Review of The Lady Nelson
Reviewed 2 days ago
We did the 2 night Triabunna - Maria Island trip with our 10 year old son and some extended family and all enjoyed it immensely. The crew (all volunteers) were wonderful, friendly and accommodating and looked after us beautifully. It was amazing to experience the workings of an old style sailing ship and there were opportunities to assist with the sailing and gain some new skills if we so chose. The crew went out of their way to make the journey interesting, and we had a fabulous stop on the south end of Maria Island, where we were able to wander a beautiful deserted beach and check out some interesting convict ruins and the local wildlife. There was not a dull moment really, and the reading matter we took remained untouched on the trip. The captain, cook, and assistants made a huge effort with the food. Crew also offered good advice re sea sickness and medications meaning a very comfortable trip was had, despite my apprehensions prior. This is definitely a worthwhile experience which we would highly recommend. It is great value for money, particularly as the ticket prices go towards the continued operation of this fantastic vessel.

Date of experience: January 2020
