Select Option


Join me on an amazing Photography Adventure Tour aboard the 20-metre expedition vessel Odalisque, photographing the racing yachts competing in the 2019 Sydney Hobart Yacht Race set against Tasmania’s towering sea cliffs.Tour departs on EITHER: 28th Dec or 29th Dec. All guests must be available to depart on either day to ensure best weather conditions.The tour will include a cruise from the port of Hobart across Storm Bay to Tasman Island for sunset shots, anchoring overnight in Port Arthur or Fortesque Bay with gourmet Tasmanian food and drinks, a dawn shoot around the Tasman Island sea cliffs, before a return cruise to Hobart. I have teamed up with Tasmanian Boat Charters and their expedition vessel Odalisque for this unique photography adventure tour. The Odalisque was designed to voyage to Port Davey in the Tasmania’s wild and remote South West, she offers superb comfort and at 20-metres in length is a fantastic platform for photography in all weather conditions.
