Yukon Tours

Calm Water Cruises

Join us for an adventure cruise aboard the Danish sailing ketch Yukon.

Built of oak in 1930, we rescued Yukon in 1997 from the bottom of a harbour and carefully restored her. The family has operated Yukon as a charter vessel, first in Europe and now in Australia. We explore Tasmania’s magical nature from its stunning waterways.

You will find us in the township of Franklin on the beautiful Huon River, just 45-minute drive south of Hobart.

Discover the tradition. Sail Today – we give you the opportunity!
