Adventure Paddle - Hellfire Bluff Tasmania


Want to see more of beautiful Tasmania by surfski? Our weekend Adventure Paddles will get you off the beaten “track”, broaden your horizons and develop your skills. Adventure Paddles are a fantastic way to see new sights and break out of the normal routine, with an emphasis on fun, safe and challenging downwind expeditions and open water trips. You’ll be surprised at some of these stunning paddling venues only a stones throw away from Hobart.

Adventure Paddles are run on a semi-regular basis according to weather forecast. We normally plan and communicate trip details 3-5 days out. Please contact us or check our Facebook page for up-to-date information prior to purchasing.

We recommend booking Adventure Paddles online to guarantee a place. We need all participants to confirm their participation the day before each trip.

Course description:

One of our most popular trips...we get excited just walking along the beach at Marion Bay (it's so exposed and the flotsam and jetsam is incredible), let alone paddling off it with views of Hellfire Bluff, Maria Island and the stunning Tasman Peninsula cliffline. During this paddle we'll make our way from Marion Bay across to the "Narrows", which can produce some exciting tiderace conditions for surfing our skis. From there we'll head north towards Hellfire before catching the downwind train home.
