Secluded bays, pristine waters stretches of unspoiled white sandy beaches, pink granite mountains – a day in the office for Susan and Nathan sounds anything but dull.
In 2012 the married couple returned to their home island state and purchased Freycinet Adventures – a premier sea kayaking business.
Prior to coming home the two had carved careers overseas running luxury yachts. Water was in their blood and they wanted to remain in the tourism industry, but still connected to the sea. It was perfect timing when the successful business, which had been running since 1996, became available.
Freycinet Adventures are all about taking a tactile, ‘deeper’ journey into one of Australia’s most picturesque national parks.

Travelling by sea kayak visitors are able to access areas of the park that are simply not possible to reach by car or foot; they can get right up close to the majestic landscape and the inquisitive native wildlife watching passers-by.
Susan puts it best – they ‘show you our secret favourite places’.
There is a choice of half day tours or a two and four-day expedition. Mornings are spent paddling at your own pace for three to four hours, and afternoons is referred to as ‘island time’ – a chance to choose your own adventure, be it bush-walking, swimming, snorkelling, reading, sleeping or chatting with like-minded souls.

Everything is designed so that all you really need to bring is a toothbrush – from food, drinks, nutrition, gear, bed linen everything is taken care of by Susan, Nathan and their team.
And don’t get us started on food – you can’t come to a place like Tasmania and not regale yourself in the abundant local produce and wines…and Freycinet Adventures makes sure of that! This is next-level camping indeed.
