Cruises to Great Oyster Bay


Great Oyster Bay & Freycinet Peninsula (Scenic Cruising)


Surrounded by the lush forests of Freycinet National Park and the rocky peaks of the Hazards mountain range, Great Oyster Bay provides stunning panoramic views. Tucked into a sheltered spot on Tasmania’s beautiful East Coast, the bay is the perfect vantage point for sensational views. During the colder months, migratory whales pass through the bay, making it the ideal whale watching location.

Scenic cruising at Great Oyster Bay on a P&O Tasmania Cruise offers a sightseeing experience that’s simpler and more relaxing than ever before. For a prime viewing location, head up to the top deck and settle in to admire the wild, untamed beauty of the Freycinet Peninsula’s many bays and beaches. You’ll be treated to incredible sights of untouched white, sandy beaches, ancient rock formations, and sprawling forestation.

Then, get out your binoculars and keep an eye out for wildlife including graceful seals and playful dolphins. If you’re lucky, you may even get to witness the unforgettable sight of the sun disappearing beneath the pink granite peaks of the Hazards at sunset!
