Photograph the Tasman Peninsula by Boat
Rate this Adventure Australia › Fortescue Bay Camping Ground
Added by Madison Sankovitz
This is an amazingly scenic peninsula famous for its dolerite rock cliffs towering over the Tasman Sea.
Viewing the Tasman Peninsula by boat offers easy access and an amazing perspective of the towering dolerite sea cliffs that you can't get from land. Put your boat in at Fortescue Bay campground and travel out around the peninsula to the south. You can travel for hours with unending scenery and wildlife to see, such as birds, seals, and dolphins. You can travel around Tasman Island, also in the area, if you would like. There are many small caves and tunnels throughout the cliffs to explore if you have a small enough boat.
Work with your boat and camera to capture various angles of the dolerite rock spires and cliffs. A wide angle lens will provide the best images of this area because the cliffs may surprise you with their size, towering over your head as you pass by.

This hike is short, but there are tons of opportunities to take in beautiful views of the bay and we saw tons of kangaroos! It was close to dusk, so this is a time when they're typically quite active.
