Seaplane access to one of Tasmania’s best thrill-seeking experiences.

Tasmanian Air Adventures has teamed up with the amazing Huon Jet Boat, to provide excitement & adrenaline in the air and on the water!
By combining these two outstanding tours, you get to experience Tasmania’s best thrills in one package. Depart Hobart’s waterfront in style & comfort in our Beaver floatplane, before taking off from the River Derwent and heading for the Huon. After a scenic flight to the south of Mount Wellington, make a spectacular landing on the beautiful Huon River at Huonville.

Now hold on tight and head up the Huon River for the ride of a lifetime. Feel the adrenalin surge as the jet boat quickly accelerates to speeds of up to 80kph. You’ll whip along the riverbank, weaving in and out of the forest canopy that overhangs the river, dodge around trees and rocks in the river, bounce through white water and fly into full 360° spins. You’ll also enjoy true tranquillity as you cruise through wide expanses of deep water surrounded by forest, wildlife and mountains in the distance. Gaze into the still waters that show off fabulous reflections of the river and skies. Go close up with Huon pines growing on the river bank, before returning to the Huon Jet Boat Centre for a longer scenic flight back to Hobart.

After an amazing takeoff from the river, you’ll follow the Huon River down to the sea, past Bruny Island and the D’Entrecasteau Channel and back to the River Derwent in Hobart. The must-do tour for anyone wanting excitement in Tasmania.
