We have a fully equipped kitchen on board and can arrange a chef-designed menu fit for any occasion. From simple, hearty platters to a degustation of fine Tasmanian fare. Please see below for our latest catering menu. Self-catering is also available.

Odalisque is a fully licensed venue and has an extensive Tasmanian wine list to choose from, as well as local beers and boutique cider.

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.
