Join us for an adventures cruise on board the traditional Danish sailing ketch Yukon.
Built of Oak in 1930, Yukon was rescued by its current owners in 1997 from the bottom of a harbour near Copenhagen and carefully restored. The family has operated Yukon as a charter vessel, first in Europe and now in Australia. We explore Tasmania’s highly bespoken nature from its stunning waterways.
You will find us in the township of Franklin on the beautiful Huon River, just 45-minute drive south of Hobart.
