Map - Calm Water Cruise


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
28 day guests

We welcome you on board

Daily Calm Water Cruises on the Huon River

  • Cruise Duration: 90 Minutes (approx.)
  • From AU$50.00

Built of oak in 1930, the privately owned Danish sailing vessel Yukon, was rescued by Australian shipwright David Nash and his Danish wife Ea Lassen, from the bottom of a harbour near Copenhagen. Learn more about the history of the Yukon here.

After 7 years restoration the family has operated Yukon as a charter vessel, first in Europe and now in Australia.

Join us on board for this popular 90 minute cruise, where you can hear the story of Yukon’s  restoration and voyage to Australia.

Become a part of the experience as you hoist sail or simply sit back and enjoy the timeless beauty of the Huon Valley.

Explore below deck and find out more about the restoration of the vessel and our adventures on the high seas.
