Had a great time, shame about the cranky old bloke at the the very end of the tour. The rest of the staff were Exceptional...I suggest a draft for the individual...he clearly is harbouring childhood issues that don't blend well with the majority of the community.

The two night getaway allowed enough time to explore the river and bays, while experiencing and participating in sailing a square rig historic vessel. At anchor overnight in a peaceful bay is a delight. The volunteer crew and fellow passengers were very good company, and the cook fed us extremely well.

What was so good about this journey was that from the very start, the dedicated volunteers drew us into helping sail the boat, so it was a training but without pressure or stress. They were patient, but it was serious work and you felt useful and a sense of accomplishment in tasks so different to one's everyday life. The Lady Nelson community is warm and passionate about what they get to experience, and sharing it with others willing to have a go. It came across in the lavish food, easy rapport, and small numbers involved so we were instantly on first name terms, and individuals. The crew themselves were so diverse and problem solving amongst them a delight to watch.
Behind it all was the astonishing beauty and freedom of the wild Tasmanian coast, and the weather and the waters. This trip was as iconinc and uniquely Tasmanian as a Cradle Mountain Hike, and a lot more fun. Still smiling every time I think of it, and proud of being an old dog learning new tricks.

A wonderful 90 minute experience where you can actually be a part of it all by steering or hoisting sails! Definitely worth doing.

I'm no sailor, but I am interested in sailing ships of the early 1800s. The Lady Nelson morning sail was excellent value. The crew were friendly. The host, Maureen was knowledgable and approachable. The Lady Nelson itself is in immaculate condition. I was even invited to haul on a rope and help trim the setting of the yards when the captain and bosun called for the crew to wear the ship. I'll do it again when I'm next in Hobart.
