Thanks for sailing with us, Robert W. we appreciate your review and pleased that you enjoyed the experience. We had hoped to get all four of the unfurled sails up, but not to be with the 20-25kt winds. Maybe next time we will have all...More
We were in Hobart last weekend, and booked an afternoon sail on the Rhona, several weeks in advance, all paid for. Along with several other people we turned up at the appointed time only to find no one there. I rang them, and woke the...More
Hi hilzPalmSprinsCa, We were dreadfully sorry to disappoint you and in all honesty did all we could to try to rectify the situation. Charles may have sounded asleep; he was certainly awake; dealing with high winds and heavy rain. With 40 knot winds and hail...More
We had a really amazing afternoon out on the River Dewent with the wonderful team on SV Rhona. They were all super friendly, the hospitality couldn't have been better, the team were so inclusive, they even let us helm the beautiful Ketch. All the team...More
Thanks AussieSmudge1976 for your review. Its always a pleasure to be out on the water and we aim to give our crew and guests an awesome day out. We aren't a square rigger, but a traditional gaff-rigged ketch (one of the three tall ships in...More

Thanks for sailing with us and you lovely review, jeffreyw129. Your comment about the sandwiches made us smile. We hate waste and learnt from experience that small bites are more managable and less likely to fly overboard in windy conditions. Even on calm days, having...More
Fantastic 2 hour winter cruise under the Tasman Bridge. Informative narration by crew members and a delicious afternoon tea. Doesn't cost an arm and a leg and even if you are not touring it is a great experience. Pity the cruise ships don't mention these...More

We went on a winter day sail with members of the Wooden Boat Guild of Tasmania. The winds were light, so not a lot of high-speed sailing, but it was a pleasant cruise and a the hot soup helped ward off the chill. The crew,...More
Thanks Rob; we always enjoy hosting the Guild and look forward to the next visit!
Our party of 4 were the only passengers on our afternoon cruise on the Derwent on the SV Rhona H, so we had the boat to ourselves, along with the great volunteer crew who help the owners run this lovely tour. I had the opportunity...More
Thanks Tony, We appreciate you sailing with us and your kind review. Sailing is our passion and sadly when the wind is very still we need to use the "D Sail" (diesel engine). Our all volunteer crew are fantastic and its having guests onboard that...More
The staff and the boat are what make this trip so special. The staff interact with guests sharing their knowledge of Tasmania and it's sailing history. The lunch and cheese plate were just what we want to eat and so fresh. The day we sailed...More
