Map - Bruny Island and Channel


We are sailing the oceans and rivers on our Traditional ketch ‘YUKON’.

We sail in harmony with the wind and the waves, all on board can get involved – set and trim the sails, learn a useful knot or try a `trick` at the helm.
As the elements gradually begin to work their magic, one cannot help but be enchanted by the sensation of a ship under sail.

Yukon is the ideal setting for a relaxing and engaging holiday or a different and memorable one day celebration.

Yukon accommodates
8 overnight guests

Bruny Island and the D’Entrecasteaux Channel

  • Season 2018/19 offers so far 2 different options for Bruny Cruises:

Sail aboard Yukon on ‘the channel’, a favourite cruising ground for the Tasmanian sailor, this partially sheltered water way nestled between the Tasmanian mainland and Bruny Island has a myriad of anchorages and secluded beaches. An ideal passage for a short break, this 3 night voyage is a good introduction to coastal cruising aboard Yukon.
All destinations are considered with regard to weather and an individual’s capacity. The prime objective of the voyages is to enjoy ‘the channel’ and Bruny Island’s coastal surrounds, whilst taking advantage of Yukon’s roomy comfort. Boat trips in our ships boat and a series of short guided/unguided walks will be a part of the daily program.
