Hobart Functions, Events and Celebrations on a Private Harbour Cruise

…whatever your event, Odalisque guarantees size, comfort and convenience.

Bring yourself or a group up to 40 people from $550 per hour

Entertain your colleagues, clients, friends or associates with a memorable experience aboard Odalisque. Fantastic for a corporate function, Christmas, birthday, hens or bucks parties, or any occasion that calls for a unique experience. Create the perfect atmosphere for up to 40 people with the best view of Hobart, cruising on the Derwent River with its picturesque buildings, wharf and Mount Wellington as your backdrop. Regardless of the size of your group, big or small, our charters are perfect for a day on the water.

Our 3 hour Private Harbour Cruise is an ideal duration for a long lunch or sunset drinks. Think you might like to have a little longer out on the water? No problems. We can customize the length of the tour, and the destination. 

We have a fully equipped kitchen on board and can arrange with our chef to design a menu fit for any occasion – from simple, hearty platters to a degustation of fine Tasmanian fare. We are a fully licensed venue and have an extensive Tasmanian wine list to choose from, plus local beers and boutique cider. Food & beverages are available through Tasmanian Boat Charters at an additional cost. Please inquire for our latest menus. Self-catering is also available. 

Pick up is available from a Hobart location convenient to you. Options include Elizabeth St Pier, Kings Pier Marina, the Queens Domain and with prior arrangement many other public or private jetties within the Hobart area, including Bellerive, Wrest Point Casino, Mona and local yacht clubs & marinas.

Our Private Harbour Cruises operate between Lower Sandy Bay and Mona. If you’d like to venture further down the channel and see more of our beautiful coastal & aquatic life, then a Custom Day Charter might be perfect for you. Our Day Charters are available to and from Hobart to locations within Storm Bay and D’Entrecasteaux, including Bruny Island. Read more here
