Here’s a fun fact: Tasmania produces more seafood by value than any other Australian state, including an annual haul of about four million oysters.

And there’s perhaps no better way to appreciate this marine bounty than on a half-day tour with Pennicott Wilderness Journeys’ Tasmanian Seafood Seduction tours, which explore some of the most pristine waterways in the world. Operated aboard a custom-built 12-passenger vessel, the full-day cruises depart daily from Hobart and pass towering sea cliffs and sandy beaches that are accessible only by boat.

Along the way, expect to spot dolphins, whales, seals, penguins, and a profusion of seabirds while sampling the freshest wild seafood caught and cooked on the vessel, accompanied by local wines, beers, ciders, and juices.

Guests will also enjoy oysters shucked straight from the water and watch as their guide dives for abalone and sea urchin.  For anyone who is curious about the ocean but reluctant to get wet, it’s the ultimate immersive experience.
