Secluded bays, pristine waters, stretches of unspoilt white sandy beaches and pink granite mountains – a day in the office for Susan and Nathan of Freycinet Adventures, a premier sea kayaking business, is anything but dull.
Before returning to their Tasmanian home, the two had carved out careers overseas running luxury yachts. Aquatic adventuring was in their blood – they wanted to remain in the tourism industry and connected to the sea. So when the business became available, they jumped at the opportunity.
Freycinet Adventures is all about taking a tactile, ‘deeper’ journey into Freycinet National Park: one of Australia's most picturesque wilderness areas.

Travelling by sea kayak, visitors are able to reach areas of the park that are inaccessible by car or foot; they can get right up close to the majestic landscape and inquisitive wildlife.
Susan puts it best – “we show you our favourite secret places”.
Freycinet Adventures runs half-day, two-day and four-day expeditions. Mornings are spent paddling at your own pace for three to four hours, and afternoons are referred to as ‘island time’ – a chance to choose your own adventure, be it bushwalking, swimming, snorkelling, reading, sleeping or chatting with like-minded souls.
Everything is designed so that all you need to bring is a toothbrush – from food and drinks, to gear and 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.
