Short Sailing Trips from Hobart

The Lady Nelson sails on most Saturdays and Sundays.

These sails are on the Derwent Estuary, but the exact course is weather dependent since we always set some sails.  You can relax and take in the scenery or get involved with sailing the ship.

The number and type of sails set depends on the weather, the crew and the number of passengers.

This is an excellent opportunity to take in the majestic harbour and stunning scenery; come aboard, relax and experience tall ship sailing in one of the world's most picturesque harbours.

Harbour Sails last for 90 minutes, so please ensure you have adequate clothing to stay warm and dry. Some coats can be provided if required.

Bookings are recommended and we only confirm bookings for two weekends ahead.  Call the Lady Nelson office and find to confirm when we will be sailing.
