ships and boat tours
tasmania is accessed daily by a large ship (for passengers and cars), connecting melbourne and devenport (see map).
a small freight ship connects flinders island and georgetown on the northern coast. this includes cabin offers for a few passengers.
on tasmania, ships for tours with visitors are operating about everywhere, and the size of the boats varies considerably. here is a convenient small one, which can enter little rivers as well.
very popular are rubber boats for rough rivers, requesting proficient actions. capsizing may happen!
what i preferred and did: joining a small group of travelers on a rubber boat with rudders, and then exploring sceneries and birdlife in remote rivers.
and this was indeed very enjoyable!
