About Wild Ocean Tasmania

Jump aboard the Ocean Prowler and join us on an unprecedented coastal adventure along the edge of Tasman National Park, only 1 hour South of Hobart. Seize a once in a lifetime opportunity to get whisker to whisker with wild fur seals and other fascinating marine life, safely suspended on a world first sea-view platform. Rugged up in toasty drysuits and geared with mask and snorkel, you're ready to dip your face in the water and immerse yourself into a different dimension. No need to carry heavy diving gear, change clothes or even swim.

Gaze through some of the worlds last giant kelp forest. Feel the dynamics of spiraling bait balls. Watch seals play in their element and dolphins surf the wake of our boat.

Anything is possible. Everyday brings a new chance for a very special experience.

This new eco-tour is tailored to those who want to be exposed to the elements, who share a passion for the marine environment and those who want to help put something back. All our trips ensure minimal impact on the environment and serve as a basis to support our private wildlife rehabilitation work.

We'll get you wet, we'll keep you warm, and we promise to make your time in Tasmania an unforgettable one.

Terms & Conditions

Our boat tours are dependent on the weather. The automated booking confirmation reserves your requested number of seats on the boat. We will check the latest weather forecast and contact you 2 days prior to the booked date to give you the final confirmation.

Weather conditions in Tasmania can change unexpectedly. The seals are wild and not trained. It is up to the animals to decide if they want to swim with us. If we can't give you the experience that we market to (e.g. no seals in the water, unfavourable change in weather/ocean conditions for swimming with the seals) we will only charge the 'observer' rate. Payments can be made on the day with Visa/MasterCard or cash.

Be aware that boating and activities on the ocean can be physically demanding. A certain level of fitness is required for our trips. We reserve the right to cancel or modify the trip or refuse participation for safety and capability reasons.

Meet for the Ocean & Seal Trip at 8.50 am at the Wild Ocean Tasmania HQ, 165b Pirates Bay Drive, Eaglehawk Neck, unless stated otherwise. Please dress warmly and bring a change set of clothes.
